That sounds gorgeous - I'm passing my TT to my daughter Wonky - I'll tell her about that combination.

Flames hasn't really bulked up, but I've not had it as long as TT - I only bought it fairly late last summer - maybe this year?

Hi Cambridgerose  

I have the same two geums.  Totally Tangerine has grown and grown and grown - but it's the wrong colour for the bed it's in so in the autumn I dug it up and put it in a big tomato pot - it's continued to grow and has flowered most of the winter.

Flames of Passion (don't think the name suits it ) has just re-appeared after dying down over the winter.

Pdoc, a chocolate egg and a sausage sandwich - bliss   Is your OH putting you on a leash? 

I've been outside and started digging on the extension of the veg patch, but my back began to complain as that area is full of tree roots from the ash we felled earlier.  OH has decided on a sensible division of labour - he will dig the veg patch next weekend if I come in and roast a chicken and make a rhubarb and orange crumble now - it's a done deal!!!

Then later after our meal we have last week's The Night Manager to watch before the final episode tonight

Hmmm I just looked out of the west-facing window - it's very grey and horrid out there and looks as if we're getting rain any minute - definitely an indoor afternoon.

Think the Boat Race weather will be horrid

Think you'd be wrong David   We respect each other's point of view - we often disagree about something but have never had an argument in over 20 years

How lovely - I had a look in the woodland at Henham  the other day as I drove past but not a glimmer of blue yet.

"I always feel that is its 'gimmick' - Northern Plain Speaking, No Frills"

But Dove, it is a Scottish program, that many of us soft southerners seem to have taken to our hearts....

Of course, but that's still it's Unique Selling Point and the producers and directors make the most of it
