Topbird ((hugs))

Hosta and OH - have a fab holiday

Turning chilly here now - I think I'll put the heating on now that I'm sitting down.  I've made the fish pie filling, just got to cook and mash the tatties ...

Pauline - think you deserve a gold star

Plants think it's Spring

It's not just the plants - we have a pair of totally smitten wood pigeons trying to do unprintable things together whilst balancing on the trellis on top of our fence  

Every time I do the washing up there they are .............. again

Roses advice

Percy Thrower used to say prune hybrid tea roses in early March.  That's roughly when I do it - give or take a week or so either way.

New Year's Day 2016 Flower Count

Posted: 31/12/2015 at 15:25

As far as I'm concerned one flower is a flower.  That's how I've always counted them.

I don't think I've got as many flowers blooming this New Year as last - but that's partly due to the fact that we don't have any tubs of winter pansies/violas etc.

I really don't see why Gar needs to grow things on his balcony when he's got a lawn he could dig up .......... it would save all that lawn cutting he was talking about elsewhere

 

Gar, do you know Garden Fairy - he/she is another new member from Canada ... you could get him/her to pop around and give you some ideas - he/she is into garden design
