Disappointed that Jay won even though he was a great dancer but there we go. I wanted to Kelly to win as I thought she was amazing. I didn't warm to Katie but now David comes to mention it that's a great description

That's the one chicky, so so pretty. Lovely display of pots and flowers Will make mental note to get some seeds. Do you start them off under cover outside in Spring?

Thanks Fairy, I've loved it this year, for one thing and an other. This finally feels like a more permanent home. There's some small perennials lurking in there as well so next year it's going to look different again. I've also learnt what people like in their gardens if the price is cheap enough

I'm missing being outside, it's just so dark and wet

Ah cheers Chicky. I am blessed with a very capable under gardener who just makes stuff and digs flower beds for me. He's great at designing a garden, this is our 3rd garden together in about 4 years. This one is quite full already.

I love your deep bed, I'm sure the lawn bit is going to be a little less next year. I'm sure you grow some pretty blue starry like flowers that I've admired before?

Thanks Chicky, just had look back and I can see them in March Very chilly pics Fairy, no frost as yet here

Started this garden from scratch this year. 1st pic is Mid March, others are in July. Still amazing how many flowers you can get from a few packets of seeds

They are lovely pieces. I would move them, don't take the risk and yes I think the fawns might have a new home already

Daffodils are sprouting too early!

Not ever seen Daffs in December Posy! A lot of mine have popping up through the soil, a peek at things to come.

Just been out now and notice that some anemone bulbs have sprouted and grown in their packet, obviously forgotten and left outside for a while

Good pictures Chicky, I enjoyed looking at the year gone by. Still amazes me how things change over the year. I like the large white blooms at the back.
