I've got quite a good camera RB, and a reasonably steady hand, but I also tweak them a bit once I put them on the computer. David helped with showing me how to do that.... 

What is taking over my garden

  We regularly have masses of it here too, but it's easy to yank out

Me too Clari - they don't flower till May here normally, late April if you're lucky,  then they get battered by wind and rain unless they're tucked in somewhere  

Mine are a couple of inches out the soil (in pots only) The common ones are bigger of course. They'll take any old weather and abuse!  

What plant?

Looks like  a rhodo to me too.

I think privet performs better in damper ground.

Lovely RB - once I got them up the right way....

My snowdrops are making an appearance now - some still to open - but it was so sunny at lunchtime today, I got a couple of pix

Blue skies and sun here after a sharp frost over a little snow layer overnight. 

About four or five degrees just now, but it'll be down near 1 or 2 by about 4 pm I should think. Some snow tonight possibly, might miss it though. 

Pity I have to work

So - re the bus pass - I think it'll be tomorrow before I use it.  I think I'll start small, and just go to Burnley.  


You know how to live Liri...

Enjoy using it - you've earned it and the pension, after all. Have a smashing birthday too   Go easy on the candles...

Think that snow's very localised Dove. I still have some where the sun hasn't got to it.  

It might make you feel better having a bit of wintery sun doc. Hope things aren't too stressful with the neighbours today.
