Morning KEF - maybe a frost means that the sky is clear and you may get some sunshine?

Frosty here too ... white everywhere, especially the newly mown lawns   but at least the sun's shining   If it carries on I'll be out there again today

I really enjoyed Poldark ... thought Verdun was great - he's always said not to mess with him 'cos he can handle himself in a fight - well, he saw that lot off didn't he? He'll probably need to see the dentist again, I bet that crown's been knocked loose

What is this?

IIRC stock and phlox seedlings look pretty much the same - you'll have to wait quite a while until you can tell the difference ............. can I suggest that you get one of these and use it to write on your seedtrays and pots - much better than losing the labels

I think you're right Bekkie

It's beautiful and deserves to be better known - I wish I had a place for one ...

The RHS says it comes from China, and from his/her profile I think that Wenjiangwater lives there.  And I love the dog in her picture - so gorgeous
