Leadfarmer - I do exactly the same - I did mine last week

Morning Flumpy   milk and sugar on the table

I put some ground feed out on a log for the birds - there are two male blackbirds desperate to get the food and trying very hard to pretend the other isn't there.  It's so funny to watch them   One is nesting in the garden over the fence and I think the other has come from the conifers in the garden opposite our front garden.

I agree - after flowering - but you can start preparing the site where it's going now - a decent sized area with lots of added organic matter dug in, then when you dig it up with a huge rootball and plant it and water it in well it will hardly notice it's been moved.

Good luck and mind your back!

There was that slot that Carol K did last year with a young family just starting their garden ... I wonder if there'll be something similar this year?

What is your weather like?

It was cold and misty here in Norfolk earlier too, but the mist has cleared, the sun is shining and the sky is blue

Yesterday was dull cold and overcast all day so this is lovely.

Hurrah!  the mist has cleared and the sun is streaming in through the windows.  It's going to be a glorious morning.

Coffee anyone?
