Panda, I have a vague (very vague) memory of you getting one of those big (huge) yellow daisy-type thingies last year - can't remember what they're called - where's Nut?

Oh Liri - your holiday looks wonderful - just what we would love - except for the mozzies - I always get bitten and react badly with swelling and pus-filled blisters

Well, that's the parquet in the hallway and the open plan sitting room and dining room area all vacuumed, washed, waxed and buffed until it's gleaming and a big  ((hug)) for OH  who helped a lot.   Can't do it on my own as the sofa and dining furniture etc all have to be moved, and you can't drag them across parquet 'cos it marks, so they have to be lifted. It does look lovely now it's done 

While we were doing the floor the robin was getting fed up with waiting for mealworms so he actually came and sat on the lip of the dining room doorway! He's very busy with at least three fledglings in our garden

Have a look here

at Deep Secret and Papa Meilland - both very dark red bush roses with strong fragrance.

I had huge ideas and plans for this year .

" the knee" has put paid to all that. Hey ho, always next year eh?

I know how you feel Hosta - I've spent this spring catching up with things that should have been done last autumn because of 'the wrist' ... there's always something to throw a spanner in the works, but it's still fun isn't it

Good morning all

Glad Woody's visitors had a lovely day - I hope Ggirl took some photos

It looks as if a fine day may be on it's way ... just as well as today has been designated 'Waxing the Parquet Day' - an annual event that got delayed due to Pa's demise.  OH is going to help

Not blanketweed, but what?
