Back from cold dog walk and quick visit to GC. Had cup of coffee (and 2 shortbread biscuits that I didn't need  ) Bought small bag of vermiculite, resisted several plants, a swing seat and assorted stone dragons. May go in GH after lunch and set up the autopots - at least I'll be out of the wind.

Looking forward to BLT sarnie for lunch when OH gets back.

Trimming and tidying garden stuff that's long overdue, Bunny . Though you mentioning compost reminds me I could do with some for seeds so maybe GC is a more enticing prospect

Morning Forkers.

April 1st, no tricks that I know of so far. Apart from the tricksy weather forecast which is worse than was promised yesterday. We may have sun later in the morning for an hour or so but it's mostly cloud.

Not sure what I'm doing today, probably trimming and tidying.

Have a good day, one and all.

Moving it will damage roots so I would think best to avoid picking this year and give it a chance to establish in its new home.

Have come in for a little break and to prepare rhubarb. Seems as if everyone's busy busy today. Hope you're having fun, whatever you're up to

I definitely think Easter Eggs count as breakfast today! I had hot cross buns again. Just trying to decide if I want lunch at 1ish as usual. Trouble is if I leave it later it's less garden time. Only soup and bits, though. Main meal later. Must pick some rhubarb.

Morning Easter Forkers

Gorgeous sunshiney day, though still not warm. Starting slowly, changing clocks as they catch my attention. Bit of a problem with the sundial  Also the unadjustable car clock where you have to add one to the hour (converting from 24 hour if need be) and subtract 19 from the minutes.

Bunny and Dave, that was hilarious

I have self-seeded hazels and Norway maples popping up in my garden. You need to post a picture so people can look at the leaves or some other identifying feature.
