Hellebore seedlings don't need heat. Most of those will be ok in a cold frame outside.

If no cold frame, up against a sheltering wall.

Football, huh.

At my old house, i had a corner plot with a large triangular rear garden. I came home from work early one day, to find bikes in my parking space and noise coming from around the back. The local kids were using my lawn as a football pitch.

I swiftly fitted a padlock to the gate for the back garden.

It was trying hard with snow, yesterday at work, but pretty much melting as it landed. I will find out when I hit the A6

Last night I ordered some glen fyne razzers as well as a black one, and an orange one.  The glen fyne is summer fruiting and supposed to have the best taste. We should have enough for us in a couple of years time. I have a big freezer.

The main problem I see, is lack of light ,and the seedlings becoming etiolated, weak and lanky.

I have had the triple offer. The plain yellow ones go from strength to strength, 6 ft tall and stems like broomsticks. The red ones do not seem as strong. The striped one has faded away. I have ordered some of the double ones for this year. My garden needs big punctuation points, the little ones get lost. Everybody commented on the amount of perfume they pump out.

Back down to earth with a bump. A section of spring has fallen off my car. I cant get it in to the garage until Tuesday, and I've got four 50 mile round trips to do before then.

When I was little, I used to watch the holiday programmes about foreign lands and get wanderlust. My dad used to say that exotic places weren't for the likes of us. When my other half had a heart attack, out of the blue at the age of 40, we changed our perspective on life. We have no kids, so now we spend what we can, having a good holiday. When the weather is good, a week in a caravan in cornwall can be magical. In fact, when the weather is good, a week in the garden can be brilliant.

My dad could have written the definitive book on how to go on holiday and spend very little. He seemed to know every beach with free parking and no ice cream van.

I'm impressed punkdoc. I only climbed one mountain. or was it a big hill?. Above Buttermere on a school camp. Shenanigins the night before meant I had little sleep, and I opted for an extra 10 minutes sleep over breakfast. Half way up I went hypo, and slithered down a wall. A packet of dextrosol later I was skipping around like a mountain goat.  One of the lads from the boys school still remembers me coming out of the cold tarn in pants and a wet T shirt....

There is something very special about swimming with wild dolphins. My first one was just outside St Ives harbour. we often had dolphins bow riding the dive boat, but one day, when a 12 year old was learning to dive, she had finished doing the "hover", and the instructor gave the sign to turn around. As she turned around, she came face to face with a dolphin looking at her, with the sort of expression that says, "what are you doing?"

A very special moment for a new diver to tell her friends about at school after the weekend.

The cornish pod move around Lands end, from St Ives, to Sennen, and around Lands end to Mounts Bay. Exhilarating but tiring to snorkel with.

Kat the Dugong is very special too. He creeps up on divers, and uses the shot line to floss his teeth with. He only does it with the dive boat line, not interested in other boats.  and then theres Phoenix the manta, who hangs around until you've got the perfect shot...

Fantasy garden

Other papers have fantasy football, or fantasy portfolio. As we can't do much in our real gardens at this time of year, let us have a fantasy garden
