Dead rose

Yes, take it back to where you got it from - if they're any good they should replace it.  If they don't, you won't buy from them again

Good morning all - slept in a bit   it must be that Panda borrowing my body clock 

Another gorgeous morning, full of dancing shadows and birdsong   

Have just heard from a friend in N. Germany about horrendous storms and several people killed!  She was away from home and using public transport to get back - it was chaos and from the sound of it very dangerous too!  Apparently the storms are moving south - I do hope they die out before they reach Belgium and Obelixx 

Still only one of my runner beans has surfaced!  Hurrumph!  Time is getting on! 

The problem is I wrote down what I'd sowed but for some reason I left the date blank 

The seeds I used were from a pack opened last year, but within their planting date and normally that wouldn't be a problem - I put the sprinkler on them yesterday to give them half an hour's soaking - I hope that does the trick.  If not I shall be looking out for some plants ........hope the GC doesn't sell out quite yet ...........

Stick your finger in the compost - if it's dry under the surface give them a good soaking.

Dove, will you babysit a Fidget plant for me?  Could pick it up in July if we meet up? 

 Course I will 

Remind me again in the next few days and I'll have a look at the East Ruston website and check  their days and times - then we can start planning - it's good to have something to look forward to
