No gardening here, but a lovely day trailing around the charity shops and picked up a lot of books at 50p each or 3 for a £1. Hardbacks included

I always have a look at the rescue corner Rosie, there's a lot bargains to be found

Does anyone else..........

Garden spending is so much more fun chicky. 

I could easily make room for another. Are you just starting new compost in each  or are you moving it between the bins?

Matty, got our first proper compost out of Monty (thats what it's called here) last year and it's been put to use on our first veg beds. On seeing gardengirls picture I begin to think that maybe/definately have space of another one.

That will keep you busy chicky, I bought offers like in the past and they are tiny

Cotty,I sowed my scabious seeds outdoors in a cold frame this year, not had a great germination rate, but here everything seems about a month behind where they were last year. I'm growing the annual types.

Quite a few of last year scabious, by some miracle made it through the winter, grew into tall plants with a lot of flowers and I did see butterflies on them

Good going on the ceanothus, Arid Al, the new jasmine plant sounds beautiful. How long did the berry take to germinate? I went to a garden last weekend and they had a beautiful jasmine, I smelt it long before I found it

Can you dig out what you want to keep in clumps? Maybe separate the plants you want as best you could, replant them after a good water and then the blitz the rest?

Evening everyone, that's it full time work is over, more time for me and doing things that make me happy. I'm not into house work at all, never have been, I find that a good dim light, makes it all go away. To celebrate my once again found freedom, curry and beers tonight

I do find all the male grooming stuff a bit odd, I'm low maintaince, don't do the eyebrow thing myself. Did have another look at the apprentice last night, lower standard this year definately.  Does any watch the after show on bbc 2 with Dara?

Weather been poor here, I'm glad I got on with things last week. The compost area looks good gardengirl, I've got one darlek at the moment Does the time lapse camera save things as mp4 files like a video?
