Went for a "daffodil walk" with the gardener & one of the volunteers at Brodie Castle in Moray, they hold a national collection of narcissus.  Unfortunately of course there aren't many out yet!!

The weather was beautiful & it's good to hear that the National Trust for Scotland a couple of years ago appointed a gardener & she has plans for the (unused) old walled garden. They've moved some of the old varieties as they were originally planted between a wall & a lime avenue, now they are in the open in rows.  The old storage shed was interesting - I think some of the cobwebs date back to the heyday of breeding in the 1920/30's!!

They're doing another garden walk, in a different area on 6th May, we hope the weather will be as sunny then.

Sometimes a page or message loads immediately but at the moment it's normally taking at least 2 minutes; it's getting very tiresome!!

Yes, but with half a dozen layers on the rest of the body....

OH says he wants a nymph "surprised whilst bathing" in the garden (he IS joking) I said that she'd be out there for 5 minutes & I'd put a coat over her .  Got to protect her modesty!!

When I was young an aunt lived with us & she'd look at my hands "I'll dry up, you can wash - it'll clean your hands"

Don't really "do" seeds, they get leggy or rot & haven't got a heated greenhouse.  I'll only plant the hardy ones, well just scatter them around really, but as the growing season is shorter here I need fast ones! I planted ipomea as soon as I could last year, they grew beautifully strong but only reached 6" high by the autumn.
