I've changed my Edit settings back to Basic and the PM reply box has reappeared. It's just a bit annoying that we have to change it back again to post a pic or whatever, but on the grand scheme of things, it's not as annoying as slugs and greenfly

Good morning all 

That sounds like a day well spent WS 

I've been out and padded around the garden in my dressing gown and slippers - yesterday's top temp was 24.3C and we've had the mildest night of the year so far at 12.4C  - I must sweep and tidy the terrace - I can feel some outside dining coming on

Poor Chicklet ((hugs)) I hated exams - knew all the stuff - just knees turned to jelly and world began to swim around - passed out in one exam - tell Chicklet that whatever she did in the exam she didn't do that - it caused total chaos 

Don't know how I managed to come out of it with reasonable results and eventually a Masters - I suppose you just get used to it as you get older 

Anyway, time for Dove to doze now so sweet dreams folks - see you in the morning

We've been watching all the critters in the pond - we've got a Water Boatman as well now 

Lots of hoeing done today, plus some seeds sown in the veg garden and a few plants moved about a bit.

Impatiens New Guinea Hybrids have a range of almost luminous colours that almost glow in the shade, which is where they prefer to be.  Great for tubs and baskets. 

Compost crust

What are you using the compost for?

I've just discovered a new nursery - well it's not new but somehow I don't know it  lots of really unusual hardy plants and it's only just down the road from Bressingham - problem is it's not open on Tuesdays   I shall have to go back
