You will soon be having kale every day for dinner, flumpy 1.  I may be offline from today as the computer man is coming to take away my laptop.  it has been switching itself off as the fan has died.  Roofers coming today and scaffolding goes Thursday or Friday.  Dull today but warm and dry.  We have our Bee weekend Saturday and Sunday at Bristol Univ. Botanic Garden so looking forward to that.

A splendid day for the scaffolding people.  Bright sunshine already and blue skies.  I will try to get my daily chores done in the garden before they come.  The tomatoes in tomato avenue are dwindling and the conservatory is getting colourful a I bring in my tender plants.  The four big aoniums look good when they come in but they are fine outside for a month or so.  Luckily they do well in smallish pots or I would be exhausted lugging them about.  This week looks great for harvesting in the dry.  I will try to make a start to the bulb planting too.

Five weeks after the judging the result came in the post.  No improvement on last year but they did come early and it looks fab now!

Such a dull Monday morning and drizzly but not cold.  The scaffolding is due tomorrow so had to move a few pots around.  Weather is forecast to keep improving from now on so roofers should be able to get job done on Wednesday.  I did manage to empty two pots of spent tomatoes earlier and two two pots of pelargoniuma into the conservatory.  By the amount of buds still to develop looks like I have months of colour left to enjoy from them.  The six kinds of perennials we had to sow for Mr. F. yesterday are safely ensconced there too.

Some of my plants like the polyanthus and pieris think it is spring but the phygelius is flowering at its normal time.

My policy of planting lots of trees and shrubs in my garden to combat city pollution has paid off.  I have fresh lichen growing on the stone sundial even though I am barely a mile from the M5 and traffic is nonstop along the dual carriageway to Bristol.
