Have a lovely outing everyone. Remember to  get some pix 

KEF - you smudged your mascara....

How lovely Andrew.  Worth having them just for that reason alone

There's snow forecast for higher ground Dove ( above a few hundred metres- so not that high!) but the strip in the central belt looks like it might miss it again. Depends whereabouts Stacey's going.

I could have taken you for a trip to the nursery Stacey. How much room have you got in your car and how much is your house worth?

Verd - is that you lot trying to knick Soapy Salmond's ...err.. I mean Mr. Salmond's thunder? 

 You didn't have to go to those lengths to get it though...

Just goes to show- even in nature there's the exception that proves the rule !  

First Spring Flowers

The first of my reticulata Irises opened yesterday (pic on David's camera thread) 'Purple Gem'. I've got cyclamen with lots of flowers, white and cream violas, polyanthus which haven't stopped producing flowers since I bought them nearly a year ago, plenty of buds on snowdrops about to open, and the Christmas box (Sarcococca) is flowering away. There's a dianthus which has had several little buds half opened for ages - poor thing's very confused. It's as though it's waiting for just the right moment to open them properly.

Back from nursery - no native primulas 

On the plus side - it means I'll have to go back....

Took some pix at the nursery I go to, and will put them on the camera thread later - just to let you see how lucky I am to be relatively near it!  I could have bought other things of course, but I was well behaved. 

Edd- fat cats is about right. Don't get me started. Saw the news this morning and even the local MP in one of the villages looked ready for knifing someone.

Re your 'Arc' - what was Noah's favourite fruit?

Pears.....pairs....get it? 

That was a Verdun special 


Hedging and Horses

As HCFarley has said, it's the responsibility of the owner of the land to see that boundaries are in good condition, not Luchris's. A little investigation to determine the owner, and perhaps a small polite conversation might help.

Obelixx is right- livestock rarely do much damage to Hawthorn - that's why it's the hedge of choice for 'em! A bit of evergreen stuff on the garden side will blank out the ugly views all year round and give the best solution. Not too late to get bare root hawthorn either (inexpensive) and make a start on your project Luchris

I've just put that round my boundary Edd - I'll send you the berries!

But life wouldn't be worth living without cake talk Dove...

Tracey - it must be someone Scottish judging by the name.....

Right, I'm off to sort the washing and go to the nursery. Catch up later
