I've planted up the two big tubs/pots - there are some smaller ones to do too, but there may be a petunia or two left over - Wonky, next time I come your way remind me to pop them in the boot   I'll pot them up tomorrow so they grow on a bit

Matty, glad you're home safe and sound.  I like it when they do lots of frisking/checking baggage etc - my reasoning is that if they're checking me they're checking everyone, so no one's going to get anything slightly dangerous on board.  Feel much saferthat way than if they're just waving everyone through.

I am back from the GC at last - there was a broken-down car and consquent traffic chaos on A11 - but never mind, I have what I went for ... and a few things I'd forgotten I needed

Height in the two big tubs is going to be provided by Fuchsia Carmel Blue - but they're not very tall at the moment so they'd better hurry up and grow. 

I remembered to get the new cord for the strimmer and some wood treatment for the little greenhouse. 

It sounds as if the sound checks for Radio One's Big Weekend have started - it's about a mile away from here as the Dove flies - I hope we like their taste in music!!!

Oh! there's some quite good acts on ... anyone want to come and picnic and share a bottle in our garden and listen to some free music?

Need to go to GC immediately - need two plants with a bit of height for two of the tubs ....... ............. Bisy Backson

  I suppose there are some and some - Suffolk and Norfolk Trusts have been pretty good in my experience

It seems to me that they're doing this work at totally the wrong time of year! For the Twayblades and for any other wildlife (nesting birds, small mammals etc).

If they did it in the autumn there I don't think there would be a problem.

Contact your local Wildlife Trust for advice

Where are the broad beans?

Posted: 22/05/2015 at 12:47

It takes a little while after the flowers fall for the beans to appear   The early ones may not have set due to cold weather and lack of pollination, but I'm picking mine now - I'm sure yours will be appearing soon

You could always ask your father what he's done with the yoke - we had one at the Mill, remember?

 It could come in handy

Thought that'd make you smile Pdoc - best not tell Mrs Pdoc what you want for your birthday then
