It does look a bit sad  

I think hard weather can make them a bit like that too.

You can only try a similar approach to Abby's - fingers crossed it will come away again

Your name for the forum is the most appropriate BL - you're always busy !

Hope your daughter  and SIL enjoy their trip to Venice 

I've still a couple of the hills there to do T'bird, but I'll save those for a better day. 

Enjoy your snooze but don't forget to change your clocks...

I should have said that the one I knew was on a living tree rather than a dead one...but I'm still not keen!

Please try Hosta 

I should have kept schtum. Hailstones are currently battering the windows  

Forecast's not great T'bird - been spoilt recently with some lovely alpine days. Waterproofs and extra layers will be needed tomorrow. There will be an extra layer of snow on the tops too. Thinking of heading up to one I've done a few times at the Rest and be Thankful just beyond Arrochar. It's a great little walk.

I've seen a montana used this way DYL, but you need to improve the soil well, plant it a reasonable distance from the tree, and water well till established to give it a reasonable chance. Montanas don't need pruning so it's an easier choice than the ones which do. You can just tidy bits now and again to suit. 

It's not something I care for because you still have the dead tree, but it would have a framework of branches covering it once it gets going

I use several because I hillwalk. I find the Metcheck one pretty accurate most of the time, and you can just put in your own location.

I did h****work, washed pots and brought some compost into the kitchen, went to the GC for lawn feed and bought milk. Where has the day gone?  

I wasn't paying much attention to Big Ds Dove so can't help. I expect Verd will have seen it though 

The rain has actually gone off. Hurrah!

My sister had a similar one KEF - a 'cotton Easter'

West Central Scotland flumpy. Dismal pretty much everywhere up here today. Can't complain really - we had some glorious weather in the last few weeks and I had some great hill outings  

I should really do housework Wonks - girls are away all weekend so just have myself to please. I'm currently catching up on stuff I've recorded so you're not far off the mark
