Just drove up the A11 into the city - the verges are full of yellow and purple crocuses - there was no sign of them just two days ago - I remember looking for them.

... Who saw Blair raising his ugly head on Brexit?  What a turnip!  Bit late now to explain what Brexit involves.   Patronising git.  And of course he's absolutely trustworthy............

 I can't think of anyone more unlikely to convince a single Brexiteer that to remain in the EU would be a good thing - I mean, honesty and sound judgement are what he's famous for ... right???


At least Cameron was only arrogant and stupid ...

A gardener is always looking forward, planning for the future  ............ in that way gardening counteracts negative and depressive thinking

I agree with Punkdoc.


What sort of plants are you planning to grow, that need starting off so early?

Some years ago I changed my surname but most scammers use old information that they've paid little or nothing for ... don't you just love it when you get one of those phonecalls that you know is going to be about the viruses attacking your computer, and the chap asks if you're Mrs Esmerelda Billhooks and you say 'No'.   


There was a silence, then he repeated his question ... again I said 'No'. 


He said, 'You're not?' and I said 'No' again. 


Another pause and some muttering ... then he hung up. 


I shall continue with this tactic ... it's great fun

WHY IS MY PEONY PLANT NOT FLOWERING?

Verdun


Perhaps an annual mulching (around the plant - not over the crown) with organic matter would improve the moisture retention in that area too?
