Good morning all     April showers Hosta

Off to visit daughter today - it's her birthday tomorrow - her present is a new set of garden tools (spade, fork, hand fork, trowel, secateurs and gloves) and a big pile of old GW magazines   She's always enjoyed her garden but now her shift pattern has changed she gets longer to enjoy it and the old tools were getting a bit ropey.

I shall have a hot cross bun slathered in butter before I go

When my ex's parents died he bought a large family plot - even tho' I left 20+ years ago (phew!) and he's re-married he says he's  keeping a space for me so he can have a wife each side of him (and he's not joking!!!)   Never going to happen - OH and my children know they can scatter me anywhere there will be hazel catkins and snowdrops in the spring


Not a happy Helleborus

It doesn't like being indoors - that's what is making it sad - it's tough as old boots and only happy when it's outside - plant it in the garden in a patch that's got lots of organic matter/leafmould etc in the soil and semi-shade.  It'll be happy then

Wilted seedlings! :(

Is that vermiculite on the top of the compost or is it the Gro-sure granules?

Put it in a vase of water - not soil!

Soil is for roots - your tulip doesn't have any!

Hello folks - lovely day - sun sparkling on the sea and I could almost see the green buds on the hawthorn hedges opening as I drove past.  Ma ok but confused about what's happened.  Hasn't lost her appetite - brightened up noticeably when lunch was served

Glad to hear ovens are clean, gardens tended, dogs walked and ducks are making themselves 'at home'

My gardening has been sadly neglected, but hey ho - we'll get there in the end

There is an Insiders section, and it shouldn't be triggering alarms with McAffee - please contact the web team at this address

Temperatures generated by sun through glass are much higher than from a shower of rain outside

Shall we pool our piggy banks?

Or shall we stick with our seed swap?
