Morning frozen forkers  it's the same here . We've had a light fall of snow through the night and it looks like someone has sprinkled talcum powder everywhere. Haven't been outside yet but I can imagine what it's like out there.

Gary - I do hope you're right about the weather changing.

Birds galore on the fatballs and the table 's nearly empty again. That will be the first job of the day.

Bunny - surely you are not drinking already ?

I'm really enjoying this thread. All the pictures are lovely and I'm hoping mine will do well this year - weather permitting.

We have just had some new trellis fitted for my new bumble bee border that is all dug out and ready for planting. It looks a bit baldy at the momemt but I do have some Johnson's Blue hardy geranium in there which I've now split and some clematis on the other side of the trellis. There is also a new water feature getting installed so it all looks a bit of a miss-match at the moment but have started off a lot of seeds and plants to go in.

This was Durandi last year.

 The original border.

The baldy border.

But I've got BIG plans.
