It's not straightforward is it?  I came in to use the loo - when I went out again I couldn't find where I'd put my gloves - while I was searching for them a robin had started rootling about where I'd been digging so I had to wait for him to finish his lunch ...

what are you excited about?

Lovely cake David

I'm excited 'cos I've got dirt under my fingernails!  I'm enlarging the Little Wilderness and listening to a Blackcap in the branches above my head - Spring has Sprung!!!

Oh my goodness Monty has a new jacket.

Yes, I noticed that!  But I did watch the gardening as well.  Loved the visit to Wisley and it was good to see Monty letting more light into his garden - I wonder what changes that will bring

Can I suggest you PM Daniel about this

I didn't say it was easy Some of the ivy around our garden had been there for nearly half a century -  my OH used an axe and a saw as well as forks and spades - but the roots don't go deep and it's still a more reliable way than using a herbicide.

It's not the first time I've taken on established ivy and won, but it's the first time I had the help of my OH

Good morning all   I beat you all -  I fell asleep before it started   Thank goodness I've got it on a Series Link and was able to wake up at watch it at 9pm - and there was me saying yesterday that I wanted it on between 8 and 9 LOL   Yes, loved the dogwoods and rubus etc - gorgeous - have I got room for a patch of dogwoods and would they cope with how dry the soil gets in the summer in the back garden near the ash trees?

Still overcast here, but I'm up and dressed and getting ahead of myself so that I've got plenty of time to go out and play in the garden - I've got some digging to do to extend the Little Wilderness. 

It's my birthday
