......... and there must be people watching the programme who have gardens of a bigger size than us humble peasants.  They wouldn't even fit a camera crew in my garden to film it.  I just glean out any snippets from the programme which will be relevant to me so enjoy watching it.

Still nothing this morning (North Forest of Dean) but lady from the next village popped some in my pond when I was out shopping.  I know we are not supposed to move it from one pond to another but...........

I am so pleased to have some babies though

Anyone done any gardening today?

Cut the back lawn first time this year.  What a difference it makes.

Looked on last years calendar and cut it on exactly the same date 2014.

I am slowly digging mine out - not because I don't like the flowers but because as the season progresses the leaves tend to flop across the other flowers.  Maybe crocosmia is more upright?

I received some seeds from another forum member and didn't soak them.  They are in my little plastic mini greenhouse and they have germinated and look really healthy.

Just look at this seed head

What lucky pond owners you all are - mine is bare.  I have boy frogs but they haven't been 'acourtin' yet.  Daintiness - such an amazing picture.  Another pond owner in my village has offered me some of her frog spawn - I just hope it will be OK in another environment.  She is giving me some of her pond water too.

Despite the coughing and spluttering you have taken some wonderful pictures. Hope you are snuggled up inside now keeping warm as the wind is bitingly cold out there.

Oh Tootles - it must make you sick reading about all our gardening activities while you were stuck in the workhouse.

Fab day - emptied number 2 compost bin onto borders - they look great with the dark stuff - blackbirds and robins zoomed in to feast on the wiggly worms from the compost.  Hacked down and back a form of cotoneaster that was getting out of hand.  It now looks like a bad hair day but I guess it will soon fill out again.  Going to be wet and cold tomorrow so glad I managed to work in the garden today.

Nut - looks like you are having a fight with dead stuff.  What a lot of snowdrops too.
