They look like aquilegias sending up flower spikes. Right on target.

Near Nottingham we have had hail then snow then hail then large flakes of snow again. The boiler has gone out for the second time today.

I think the earliest they would flower is next year. The garden centres have some plants in in the perennial sections, if you want flowers this year.

Hail now. I've shut the greenhouse doors.

We won't be venturing out today. The boiler has gone out for the third time in three weeks. A new one is already sitting at my brothers, ready for installation when he has a free day.

My sweet peas are doing the hokeycokey. In out ,in, out,  I'm trying to harden them off to make space in the growhouse for the seventy foxgloves I pricked out yesterday. I have my tomato plants, but they need to go into the next size pot. I haven't the room to put them into their final buckets.

Regarding the free tomato seeds that didn't germinate. I didn't have any, but last year I got very poor germination on the free zinnias. This year I had so many I had to give mum three quarters of a trayful. Do you think that large seeds maybe don't like being crushed by a pile of newsprint?

Good morning everyone. There was a sharp frost overnight ,but it has melted and we have blue skies now. If hubby can get his paperwork done this morning, we are going to try and get to Felley priory for the bluebells around lunch time.
