Well scroggin, Thats where we have been. We went to Felley Priory and had a walk in the bluebells, to find someone with a blue car had reversed into hubbys car while we were walking.  They left a sorry note on the windscreen. I dont suppose that will cover £300 worth of damage.

I waas going to post pictures but now I cant be bothered. Bye folks.

Where are previous page numbers. I agree. If this is it, there will be a massive GF exit, let alone what thepoliticians are doing.

How to use a cold frame

They have to do the hokey cokey. Out in the day in a sheltered place so they don't get too hot. At night they go in so they don't get too cold. A week of that and they should be ok to plant out, but have fleece or newspapers on hand to cover up at night if it gets cold.

The cutting garden 2016

I have cosmos, zinnia and cleome seedlings in the greenhouse. Ammi majus  in plug trays and a lot of rooted Verbena bonariensis cuttings to go out yet.

Dahlia tubers from last year are now shooting and need potting on.

I did sow some cherrry red knautia but not one has come up.(Sarah Raven seed)

My sweet peas in roottrainers are outside now, I need to get them in the ground.

No, when I stripped the walls prior to the new kitchen going in, half the plaster came off. The plasterer said it was because PVA on the walls, if you use a steam stripper, blows the old plaster off. he said he gets a lot of work that way. £600 bill later, I am using a standard white paint, watered down a bit for the roller. it has soaked up the first two lots of paint. A bit more to go on tomorrow.

I did spend a week camping style.. no electric in the kitchen,microwave and kettle in the living room. I always had a bed to go to at night. I couldn't go without a bed for four years.
