Just had such a laugh ....  OH listening to the Radio News heard that '...Dame Vera Lynn's 100th birthday celebrations have been hampered by Paul Weller!' * 


As he said, 'What's he up to now?' 




*poor weather!  Duh!

GWRS -  it's Gardener's Question Time - the Radio  4 gardening programme - brilliant.  And I get to submit a question ...   I was in the audience once before, a very long time ago - when I was fifteen!

Obelixx   is it the paint?  I know modern paints aren't supposed to be nasty nowadays, but my ex was a builder/decorator and he was once very poorly with headaches and nausea when he'd done a lot of decorating - hope you're feeling better soon. 


I could tell it was spring as I drove south - apart from all the glorious wild cherry blossom (and there really is a lot) there was a field of rape coming into flower and a squidged hedgehog on the road 


Two infallible signs that winter is over, no matte what the weather does.

Glad you like it - my son is moving house and has a large garden pot surplus to requirements - I've put my name on it and this week I'll pop up to the GC again and buy a Kojo-no-mai to plant in it - I feel like treating myself

Hello folks   I'm back from the Suffolk coast - while I was in Aldeburgh we picked up tickets for GQT at Snape next month - son is taking me - he says he'll try to hide any boredom! 


We had a hailstorm in Aldeburgh, and heavy rain on the way back so hopefully my little pond is filling up nicely.  


Hope you've all had a lovely day ....... I shall read back and see what you've been up to

There is a very pretty small Japanese flowering cherry which is a small shrub rather than a tree - there's loads in the garden centres at the moment and I'm finding it hard to resist getting one   It has lovely delicate pale flowers, and then really good autumn leaf colour ... I can't think of it's name (think it has lots of J's in it)  ... give me a minute and I'll look it up ......

Hello TheLittleBird 


The sunny blooms of forsythia certainly brighten the garden up at this time of year.  My only caveat is that after its flowers are over it's just a rather nondescript shrub with green leaves.  Not even berries or autumn colour to look forward to.  I would only give it a place in my garden if I had enough space to plant other 'focal points' nearby to take over. If that's the case, then go for it - underplanting with bulbs is a lovely idea.

Thanks Topbird - that would've been lovely   Afraid I'm not often over your way - my lot are mainly based around Woodbridge, Aldeburgh, Framlingham area ... and of course Wonky in Ipswich.  


We'll have to plan something?
