While we've been outside mulching and digging, it's been lovely watching our bluetits busily popping in and out of the nest box and listening to the robin singing from the ash tree while the bees were buzzing in the pulmonarias.  A really lovely day.

AuntyRach   if it wasn't curly sarnies and beige nibbles, what was it?  

I love Stargazing Live - I'm fascinated by the stars and planets etc - I don't understand a lot about them, but I feel they're incredibly important and I love to look at them in awe and wonder.  After all, they're what caused our ancestors to start counting and calculating the passage of time.  Amazing

Well, the fog did clear and it's been glorious out there - I've weeded, planted and mulched to my heart's content, and the Undergardener has started digging over the veg patch ... it's all looking a bit more like a garden now 

Sorry about the rain that some of you had 

As for shoes, I like lots of different shoes, but most of them seem to be an entirely different shape to my feet ........ I spend most of my time in Hotter 'trainers'.   at least they're comfy if not elegant

SGL, well done on the success of the shopping expedition.  I'm impressed!

Golly gosh it was warm out there!!!  

The Undergardener put his digging boots on and came out and started digging over the veg patch, taking out the remains of the perpetual spinach and Swiss chard which has been brilliant.  

Within the next little while I'll be spreading the compost we made last year and raking it over and we'll be read.y to start again ........... the broad beans are already flowering!!!
