Glad the heel's easier Hazel 

Well done on having a lie-in Joyce 

Love Cullen Skink MU - need to make some soon - making mixed veg soup today with the weekend's roast chicken stock.   That's five meals for two people out of one chicken   Grandma W would be proud. 

Hope everyone's having a good day ... I will, now that I've got some paperwork sorted and out of the way

Wild garlic pesto

On the few occasions I've had access to enough wild garlic I've used pine nuts, but I imagine that toasted and skinned hazelnuts would be delicious too.

10.9C here at the moment Hosta .... but still a chilly wind ... however, next week looks as if it's warming up a bit 

Re people taking photos at incident scenes ... the newspapers and various websites pay well for photos like that taken by the public   That's why people do it.

OH and I were just saying that this morning Topbird;  with absolutely no hesitation men and women calmly went towards what could have been  continuing escalating danger to give help and comfort to the injured and frightened;  Douglas Ellwood too.  

Heroes every one of them.

I don't plant tender stuff out until the end of May/early June here in Norfolk.  In this garden that includes runner beans, courgettes, sweet corn, ipoemea and any summer bedding.  

Tomatoes and chillies go out even later as they need warmer temps in order to continue growing strongly.  

-Encephalartos and Cycas Seeds and seedings vailable for the following species.
