I think it's likely to be Allium triquetrum - the Three-cornered leek

OH has defrosted the bird bath for me  as I nearly went 'top over btm' on the terrace just now replenishing the food I'd put out for the blackbirds - they'd finished it all in 3 hours.  I suppose I should have had sensible shoes on

Bacon butties all eaten - lovely coffee thanks Lily !!!

Verdun, OH has healthy muesli with nuts, seeds and fruit too - and the occasional bacon buttie - moderation in all things

KEF - check your PMs

Well you'll have to have your bacon buttie when you get back Verdun

Garden programme on Sky 1

Don't get me wrong BL, we watch Four in a Bed too, but some of the competitors are rather mean-spirited and while that's sort of ok in a commercial enterprise sort of competition, people's gardens are so personal that I think you'd have to be very thick-skinned not to feel upset at unkind remarks about your garden. 

So much tv is very formulaic nowadays

Yes BL - I have your email - shall reply after breakfast!  Bacon butties all round folks?  It's some rather nice black molasses Suffolk-cured bacon which we were given free, gratis and for nothing since it was 24 hours past it's Best Before Date and there's plenty to go around

Does anyone want grilled tomatoes in their sarnies?  We've got a load of free tomatoes too

No, PJs, fluffy dressing gown and red heels   stylish eh?

No one else up yet?

Well, I had to walk on the grass 'cos the feeders needed topping up and I've put lots of ground feed out as well.  The kettle's on to thaw out the birdbath. 

And all done in my jimjams and dressing gown too - OH is still in the Land of Nod!

I'll put some bacon under the grill in a bit - that'll wake him up

Oh, good morning KEF!   You snuck in there while I wasn't looking ...

Garden programme on Sky 1

Nice to see some gardens, but I didn't like the programme - it seemed like a gardening version of Four in a Bed - with people making snide remarks - perhaps I was feeling a little over-sensitive - time will tell

getting ready for the great Garden Bird Watch

Well, I hope they've improved their website then - it couldn't cope with the traffic last year - heaven knows what attention a tv advert will bring
