What's the scrap value of aluminium?  Must be worth something .... that'd help towards a potting shed and a large cold frame maybe?

Lots of it to explore Fluffy  and we never stop learning!   

And to keep No expert happy, you could try growing a few veg amongst the flowers; that would be a real cottage garden - nothing can compete with a wigwam of scarlet flowered runner beans with their dark green heart-shaped leaves - when they were first introduced to the UK it was as an ornamental!  And whenever I see them I just want to draw them

Doc - good to see you and hear that you're able to move forward a little bit.

Don't let the WUM get to you - it's what he does it for - to try to spread upset - patterns keep being repeated - but he can only spoil things if we take notice of him - and we don't  

As for the allegations that some of us post secretly under multiple identities ....... if he really believes that he should go to Daniel and the Mods as it's contrary to the Code of Conduct - but he doesn't really believe it - he just says it to try to make people doubt the authenticity of the friendships that have developed on here.  It all sounds rather sad. 

Gardening and friendship - that's what it's all about

Just had half an hour digging on the veg patch then OH called me in for a coffee - it's lovely out there if a bit nippy - sorry to all those whose gardens are still too boggy to do anything to - mine is so free-draining that everything needs watering loads in the summer or it gets parched, so I do pay the price a bit. 

Wow! Sunshine at last.

We've had a sharp frost this morning, and now quite a thick mist - but the sun's trying to peek through - I might get out there for a bit this morning before the forecast rain arrives

Not a great photo but the promise of things to come - hopefully the sunshine yesterday will have hurried things along a bit ....
