Good morning everyone.  It's grey here and I'm waiting for bird food to be delivered.lots of gardening things to do. My body has only just recovered from last weekend's gardening. Little and often should be my mantra, but fitting it around work is the usual method..see you later folks.

The first one I've seen this year - 2014

I was woken this morning by Mr and Mrs Mallard requiring breakfast. Then OH rang me from Norwich to make sure I was up, then the alarm clock went off. When I had fed the birds (and squirrels), I was on my way to work, when I spotted some Queen Annes Lace in full flower at the side of Asda in Spondon. There are lots of clumps coming up all over, but this was 3ft high. It must be 6 weeks early.

Is it too soon to split sedums?

I've just split mine up. They are best split while the new shoots are small.

Is this an escaped pet (or a boas dinner) or a natural occurring albino?
