Hello Pamela and welcome

Crocus will have some Golden Hop available in the summer - you can ask them to email you when it's available

My guess is that the Gooseberry saw fly has got to your gooseberry bushes and stripped the leaves

Maybe the birds then took the fruit?

It's tough being a gardener

What the hellebores is going on?

Mine have been gorgeous too - and some have been flowering since around Christmas - and I've seen some great displays elsewhere in this region as well.

Are you paying a price for having an even milder winter than usual in Cornwall?

Obelixx - Darjeeling is the only tea that Wonky and I drink - when she was in her teens/twenties she carried Darjeeling tea bags with her in her bag or pockets wherever she went - they sometimes caused confusion on the occasions when she was searched going into nightclubs/festivals

Oooh no!   Can't do tea in a flask.  Black coffee yes - tea never.

Bright sunshine now but very wet underfoot and with clouds banking up in the west again.

Now the rain is hammering on the window - glad I came indoors.

That sounds gorgeous - I'm passing my TT to my daughter Wonky - I'll tell her about that combination.

Flames hasn't really bulked up, but I've not had it as long as TT - I only bought it fairly late last summer - maybe this year?
