Collapsed on the sofa having eaten roast beef, yorkies etc  - there will be banana splits later, but we're too full to even think about them for a while.

Hope everyone has a good night's sleep tonight

A Gardener's Hands

Posted: 21/02/2016 at 16:13

At this time of year I have unbroken fingernails and reasonable looking hands, but very soon I'll have broken nails and chapped and sore hands and they'll remain like that until the winter has set in again

I wear cotton gardening gloves for as many jobs as possible, but they're not comfortable or practical for every task.

I've tried all sorts of hand creams to help my hands - which do you find works best on a gardener's hands?

Not sure what sort of creatures you're talking about.  Can you post a photo or a better description?

Most of the invertebrates in the garden make a useful contribution to the eco-system and are friends to the gardener.

I think that camellia is absolutely gorgeous Wonky  - that gorgeous central boss of golden stamens against the delicate creamy silk petals - like a wonderful embroidery.

Love it - and a complete bargain

My garden's catching up with yours - have a look on the Garden Pictures thread

Gorgeous fritillaries

 Iris ret. 'Alida'

 Iris ret. 'Harmony'    (got the focus a bit wrong  )

 Crocus 'Snow Bunting'

It's amazing what a couple of days of sunshine will do
