Snowdrop Walk - Anglesey Abbey

Posted: 15/02/2017 at 09:53

What with having had the lurgy I've not got around to doing anything about organising a Snowdrop Walk.


We haven't got long left - is anyone interested in meeting up to see the snowdrops at Anglesey Abbey, Cambridgeshire?

What day of the week suits most people?


Anyone able to car-share etc?


Or is there another venue that people would prefer?

Yvie - you can let your hubby look at your plant when it's growing beautifully in the garden - that's his Valentine's present


Well, fruit bushes and the vine have all been pruned, autumn raspberries cut down, perennials and miscanthus-type grasses cut back, a few environmentally friendly slug pellets scattered around the shady bit where the hostas live, some Creeping Buttercups pulled out of the border (they keep creeping through from NDN) and another robin-type bird box put up.  I've had a much needed shower and there's been an attempt at an improvement to my 'manicure' and now I'm going to prep our supper ... see you in a bit ...

Maybe some will come back - we all seem to be coping with the forum as it is now - there are blips and so on, but then there always were. 


And now we have some 'new regulars' ... and very welcome they are too. 


Some friends have fallen off their perches and their gardens are now in other hands ... but it's nice to remember them.
