Flippin' 'eck Dove - seasonal goonies!  

Now that's posh....

Not posh - just takes up less room in the suitcase when we go and crash at Hosta's pad

To post a link to a website just cut and paste from the address bar then hit the Return key. 

To post a chunk of text you can just cut and paste, but as you also need to credit the author and publication to avoid copyright issues it's simpler just to post a link to the website.  Like this

Welcome back Gardeners Boy   Yes, glad last year is in the past, and the sun's shining at least for today ... onwards and upwards

I'm thinking of getting a dressing gown to replace my fleeces now - seems to be the in thing!   Maybe not purple though....  

Mine's not really purple, more of a slatey grey-ish mauve - rather an elegant colour really - quite a posh label from TKMaxx - fleecy but with satin bound edges -  cost peanuts.  In the summer it's replaced by a cream and deep rose silky one from Per Una.

Absolutely agree with Fairygirl. 

The variety you are growing is Tulipa x gregii Red Riding Hood, a low growing dwarf hybrid.  It's flowering exactly as it should.

The taller Darwin  types (shown in Papi Jo's link) flower later. 

Growing sage

My sage is in an east-facing bed, gets shade half of the day and all the rain that runs off the terrace and in the winter is frequently up to it's knees in water and has been under snow for 10 weeks at a time, and still survives and is huge and has to be cut back hard every spring - I'll do it any day now - however we're on a gritty loam - I can only presume that's what keeps it happy.

....Will do cooked brunch soon then might try to find a NT property to visit . OH wants to do some photos at Rutland water at sunset if the conditions are right.

Enjoy your Sundays

Topbird - worth noting that the woods around Rutland Water are full of bluebells a bit later on  

We're having a little porridge now, then OH is organising our lunch - croissants with smoked mackerel and creamy goats cheese - he brought all the ingredients back from work yesterday - think I'm turning him into a foodie

.... Second coffee needed then think about getting dressed although oversized purple dressing gown is the family uniform on a Sunday...right Dove? 

On my third coffee and I'm still wearing mine Wonky  

My OH had a lay in too - he said he woke up thinking he was a student in a student house again 'cos he could hear the music I was playing drifting up the stairs and the sun was streaming in the windows

And take cuttings every year as a insurance.  I find that heeled cuttings in a gritty compost strike well.

mouse traps for me

I know you've lost weight, but it'd still have to be a pretty big trap for you
