Geoff - good news that it is 4 minutes a day. Don't ask me to do the maths as never was any good at that!

Did you plan not to go anywhere today, Geoff? I didn't either and love home days! Mind you I think I shall have to get supper on the move soon as I can feel a few aches and pains starting up from my exertions today!

Thanks for reminding me of weed suppresant name too

PP, heavens you are organized for next Christmas.

The hellebore was already here when we moved here - all been a bit of a journey of discovery over the year but I do intend to plan it all from now on. At least that is the idea!

I have a pink trug and love it! I don't need to replace my wheelbarrow yet but a pink one would be lovely. Bjay, where did you buy it?

Oh dear...remember seeing the Dambusters when it first came out. Did you know about the manmade lake where they practised?

Afternoon/Early evening Forkers and already dark here 

Is it by a minute a week that the days get longer now? Hope so.

Sorry to hear some peeps are not feeling 100%. Take care and go with the flow. I do when I am not feeling too good.

Had a busy morning tidying up my small but formerly scruffy front garden. Have decided I am putting down big pebbles over ....oh heck cannot remember the name of it ....that stuff that doesn't allow weeds through but rain yes. And then terracotta window boxes to brighten it up. Rescued a baby budleia growing between the wall and the pavement so shall pot that up tomorrow 

Also, gave the hellebore in the back garden a good short back and sides and the straggly mint has been chopped right back. All very satisfying....tomorrow is another day of decent weather I hope.

Hope you, too, have had a good day.

Oooh just seen 'Borgen' is back on again on BBC4 tonight which we enjoy and I shall all the more for having achieved a fair amount today.

Good for you 

Rather grey cloud cover here but I still must get out there and do some things in the garden.

Enjoy the rest....

Morning Forkers

Dove, shocking news re your rellies in Tasmania - still not heard from them? Enjoy London as much as possible .

Plan to get out into the garden today while the weather is decent. I hope all of you can do the same and enjoy having a 'play' as I call it
