Gary - fabulous photos as usual   We have a big toad that sometimes lurks in the garage but I haven't seen him for a while. How he gets under the garage door is beyond me . He's enormous.

Electrics all sorted on water feature but the lights aren't working and they are sealed units.  We've just been trawling the net for replacements and found pond lights on Amazon.

Does anyone know of anywhere else we can get them  ?

Joining you in a brew. Bunny.

Thank you very much !

Lyn, I don't usually plant any annual climbers out until May - have been caught out before. Thanks for the tip about the seeds - never thought about that but they are related to Nasturstiums and I can't get rid of them now

Collect as many as I can every year but still get loads coming up.

Good job I like them.

We had a big frost last night so no outside jobs for me yet. Just watered all my babies - they are all up

Every one of the Canary creepers have germinated - I've got dozens  Need to make some more room . No sun here either so that means the frost will hang around a bit longer. Still plenty to do indoors .

Hows everyone's begonia tubers doing ? Mine have sprouted but seemed to have come to a halt.

Seeds are up

Happy to report all Canary creeper seeds are up along with Sweet Sultan, Cosmos , Rudbeckia . Dwarf Poppies and cuttings from African Violets .  Also, basket seed disks which were an experiment. They are doing very well.

 This was taken last week - there're even bigger now.
