Great start Coys! Gets very addictive doesn't it?  It's a good time to get shrubs too because the GCs are making way for other things and there are good bargains to be found.

Always fancied a go at the AE ridge pd, but my partner at the time was too chicken! The 'Bookil' is another great walk - had a great day doing the ridge. My big regret was not doing Ben Lui - the Queen of the mountains. Maybe one day. 

I'm sensing that the position of various hostelries was an important factor for you too....

Bob - if I had a hat on - I'd take it off to you. Most impressive! 

What are you intending planting in the lovely new beds?

Once you've recovered from the shovelling!

What new flower seeds are you going to grow in 2014

Brum - I remember quite a few people saying they had trouble with Verbena bonariensis earlier this year. May have been the weather this winter/spring. They are quite slow if you start them early, but as soon as it warms up they grow well. I'm hoping mine survive the winter, but if not I'll sow more in spring.

Surprised to see the sowing time for that sweet pea James. Usually you can sow from now to overwinter or in the spring straight outside. Sounds a nice one though!

Poached this morning!

Porridge is great in the microwave. It's about all I use mine for apart from re heating cups of tea if I get distracted!  I like mine quite milky and runny and you can get it down to a tee! My mum used to make it for us when we were children and stood stirring it in a pot for ages. Could have plastered walls with it - ahhh - happy days!
