No need to pinch out those calendula - they look fine to me - put them in the cold greenhouse

Just love Bodmin - we stayed in an idyllic little cottage there just off the edge of the moor a few years ago - got woken around 3am by a nightingale in the garden

Good morning you two and any/everybody else who's about

Watched Kew on a Plate, then straight to bed and slept solidly until 6am, dreaming about helping my solicitor to run a hockey team  

Temps dropped to nearly freezing here overnight, but already up to 6.4C

....  Study now is virtually empty and can now be used as a garden planning room....

  Mine's got a lot more space in it too - still boxes of Aged P's papers etc, but they can be in a heap in the corner.  Question - at what stage should one's adult children take on responsibility for storing the box of their first school books etc

It's nothing you've said    but OH has just brought a bar of chocolate to the sofa and we're going to watch Only Connect - see you tomorrow

.... .My Nan told us how they used to boil all the live crabs before selling them on the market.

She used to stuff her fingers in her ears as the crabs "screamed"

For any faint-hearted crustacean fans - it's not screaming - it's the expanding air exiting the shell - it acts like a whistle

Is Daniel promoting the cloudfunding enterprise or is he interested in growing colourful petunias?  I'm not clear what his post is about

Thought he'd been your garden slave today ?- it obviously got in the way of his kitchen planning
