I've just discovered four little tomatoes on my plants- weren't there yesterday! 

What did you do in your garden today?

We use them at work- think they're bread baskets but nurseries use them so perhaps if you have a friendly nursery near you they might sell you one or two. Failing that - try your nearest bakery!!

Punkdoc- what size of curry do you get...

Without a coat and hat donutsmrs....steady on!

I got some fence planks painted- had to mix the paint to a suitable colour first as the green is too light so added some dark brown. It looks ok- I hate that red stuff that seems to be everywhere. Got some put on so fence is taking shape. Did more posts as they arrived on Friday. Got a few things replanted and did some general tidying. Salad crops are at last starting to grow a bit- the cold really has held them back.

Did you find the ant Salino??

Hope everyone has a good day - looking forward to hearing all the news!

Take some time to enjoy it Andy- you've worked so hard! Hope the weather is great through the summer so that you get a chance to sit in it now and again instead of toiling!

And did you do all the ironing as well as the washing..

I would send you extra cake but there's none left 

Been painting and attaching fence planks and put more posts in but back too sore now. Might see if Andy could do the rest- it's not as if he's busy or anything...

Another plant identifier please....

In fact it will seed everywhere.  i am about to go out and remove all the foregetmenots I can see - knowing well that there will still be plenty for next spring.  If I leave them all to seed we'llprobably have to move!

Know what you mean!

Morning all- bit later than I normally post!

Been out painting fence planks as it's lovely here and I've been busy with other things. Just came in for a cuppa. No cake today though!

Andy - slow down!!!!

Gilly another grass is the carex 'evergold'. I put a pic on here somewhere - it's also good for brightening up a dull spot but will take a bit of sun too. 3 of them plonked together would give a square yard or so.

Thanks for all the kind comments about my 'view'. It just came to me one day about the ashes Tina. I picked the worst winter in donkey's years to travel to the north of Scotland but it was worth it. That little bay was where me and my sister used to go ina rowing boat with Dad across to the hill you can see. You couldn't land there but we collected sea urchins and I still have one of the shells. There was nothing there but 5 little caravans.

Bev- stuff the housework..

debra- it's a small world really isn't it! Glasgow is well known for Italian families with ice cream shops! I expect you could try tracing your relatives with one of those ancestry websites.

 I thought I'd share the view they have. It isn't always this snowy

Thanks Gardengirl- hadn't got round to opening mag !

Hope you're better tomorrow- at least you weren't missing much if you were getting the horrible weather. Here's some cake....
