Morning all/afties Pat

Glad all went well with your Dad Lesley. Age is just a number - it's how we feel inside and that's 27  Hope you had time to enjoy some birthday cake too 

Happy Valley was good Dove - looking forward to Line of Duty returning next week though. It's terrific. 

Cloudy and cool here like yesterday but I'll be at work anyway. 

Have a good day everyone - or as good as you can make it  

Not sure what these are.

They won't cause any issue with foundations Mel - they're all perennials  

What is your weather like?

North west highlands were to be the highest today Verd. It wasn't the sunny day here we had yesterday. It's mild for the time of year though - 7 or 8 degrees for a few hours is much warmer than usual for March. 

Snow forecast for the hills later this week. That time of year - snow then melt, snow then melt

I don't think you can 'challenge' a garden centre for selling a particular product simply because you don't agree with the ethics.  It's a business after all.  A range of products is available so that customers can make their own choices. 

As always - education and information is the way forward

I do the same Hosta - I'm not paying my hard earned money for the rubbish that passes as 'peat free compost'.

Horses were my job until I had my girls. I haven't ridden since I finished breaking a lovely youngster when I was pregnant with oldest fairylet. I'm often asked if I miss it, but I don't. It's different when it's your job. We had various tricky ponies of dubious temperament which all turned out well - one in particular who realised it was easier to do what he was asked, and became brilliant. The work put in was rewarded many times over. 

Any photos Hosta?  

Spiky weeds??
