Good morning KEF   I think we've got a gardening weekend ahead of us - we might even be able to eat outside at some stage!!!

New to this gardening

Hi Michael and Marg  and welcome   

I'm relatively sensible compared with some -  if they're good I'll bake a cake - if I'm not out in the garden laying on the grass staring into my pond 

That garden looks full of potential and doesn't have anything awful to dig out or get rid of from the looks of things.

What sort of things would you like in your garden?

Hello folks   ((hugs)) G&Ts and chocolates all available here this evening for those who need them 

I got some pricking out done today - back began to ache bending over the table on the terrace so in the end I sat down there in the sunshine with a mug of coffee .

Lots of birds in the garden today - a new visitor is a Dunnock - we've not seen it in this garden before - I think it's started to visit because there's more cover now that the Little Wilderness is thickening up - it's going to get a bit bigger before long too, so that'll make the birds happy.

Can someone please remind me to pick up some plastic pots from the recycle bin at the GC when I go to the farm shop tomorrow

All the choisyas I've ever known have flowered in the late spring/early summer - I wouldn't give up hope yet - are there no signs of buds at all?
