That's ok Tracey 

Snowy pix are lovely. I don't really have many that aren't of mountains!

Lovely views Tracey. I used to have similar ones so it makes  me very nostalgic and a bit sad

But that's life!

This is Portpatrick in SW Scotland - a little fishing village. Very sunny considering it was at this time of year!

Clari and Tracey - I planted stuff on Tuesday and Wednesday - didn't really water them in much - only the more sheltered ones as was frost was due. If the ground's wet I wouldn't worry too much. If they were suffering you'd know, and you can give them a bit of water if they start looking very sad. They're pretty robust.

Back to work in a few minutes so will have a quick  look round. That's our spring over now - damp and cold

Morning all. Cloudy here but dry. Rain for tomorrow so will have to try and get a little more done after work if I have time and something else doesn't get in the way!

Hope the back's better today KEF.

Off for a quick look round the posts to see what I missed last night.

Have a good day everyone. 

Can you please help me identify this plant, x2 photos attached, thank you

The dead flowerheads suggest Fennel to me too.

I'd uncover them then jools and just keep an eye on them in terms of watering etc. You can pot them on once they're a few inches high 

Eggs, and cooking with them

Plenty of time MrsG. 

They'll get a bit leggy and they're at risk from damping off if they're left undercover too much jools, so it's a good idea to uncover them once you have some growth. Are they on a windowsill?Turn them each day if they are, because they'll always grow towards the light.

David - I had no idea you were so handsome....

He was in the garden at Boboli. Some other interesting items there. I'll see if I can find them. I must download the ones I took in the sun in the garden yesterday. Don't know where I put the card reader though...

This is a glass sculpture in Murano,near Venice :

 That would keep intruders out!
