Got the potatoes planted, then planted my ranunculus tubers i had as a present on Mothers day and decided the 120 plug plants (60 each of pansies and stocks) must be tackled so potted a dozen up.  If i do the same for the next ten days they will all be taken care of.  Might take a picture or two now.

Home again after a brilliant lunch cooked by the partner of son 3 and sons no 1,2 and 4 and her parents for company.  Here are my lovely presents.  The sun shone the whole day and is still shining.

Beautiful weather for Mothers Day.  Garden will have to take a back seat though I had a parcel from Ballymena yesterday with ranunculus corms in and three pretty herb pots on a tray for me to fill.

The daffs are nearly over but the tulips have arrived to keep the hyacinths happy.  And here and there a cheerful anemone.

You too, Flumpy.  splendid day for gardening in Bristol today and no cooking to do tomorrow as I am going to son no3 for Mothers' day lunch.  Do not do any prodding with a fork in wellies - change into stout boots for that!

Lovely day for gardening in Bristol so I have planted more King Edward potatoes and divided lots of primulas which have been amazing this year.  still more to do  after lunch.  I divided up my big clump of chionodoxa too so should have more of them next spring. I will do the same with the puschkinia next week.  Lots of plants for free!  Once the patio picnic table is cleared of pots of cuttings I will start covering it with plants for the Botanic Garden sale at Easter to make their funds some money.

Talkback: Using nettles in the kitchen

I too am a nettle lover, Kate. Nettle tea is delicious. You can buy the dried variety if you do not have your own source.
