Its gone a bit pink here too. I hope we don't get a frost as bad as last night. I've turned the greenhouse heater up a bit.

What have you got against Yorkshire? If they were a country they would have won more medals at the last Olympics than    some very large countries.

 ... and dont forget Yorkshire puddings, York Ham, Harrogate toffee, Bettys tea shops,

and Harlow Carr gardens.

I collected seed but they are all mixed up. Sometimes I get free packets of seed and they go in the mix. What will next year bring?

 You cant keep a fisherman in on match day.

I went to the garden centre yesterday, mainly to take mum out, because dad has decided to do some dusting. This consists of flicking dust around with a feather duster until it settles again.  It was either a trip out or dig a hole in the back garden for the body.

 Anyhow, the Garden Centre group has half priced all bulbs, so I added a few of those to the basket, Then I got a trolley because they had some nice glazed pots that would suit bulbs, and then I got a new Burgon and ball digging fork, because I broke the handle on mine.  It was a present over 30 years ago  so its not done bad. It will repair when I find a new handle, so I will have a spare. also it will come in handy for those "split a perennial with two forks back to back" moments. We had coffee and a scone, used some vouchers, and then headed back up the A38 to macarthur glen.  A bit of a mooch around and then home to find Dad complaining he had not had a cup of tea all afternoon. I had better go and pot the bulbs up.

 Have a good afternoon everyone, dont eat too much cake.(save some for me)
