what jobs done over easter.

Posted: 02/04/2013 at 12:39

Jet washed all the patio - well OH did. I washed all pots , transplanted some bits and pieces into my new border where we have installed a new water feature and lobbed all pot feet and garden ornaments in dishwasher.

Weather was kind for once so had a lovely few days in the sunshine. Looking forward to getting it planted once the weather warms up. All babies coming along nicely.

Morning everyone.  We've just had a snow shower ! Now it's gone back to being lovely and sunny - very odd.

Late visit from Grandson and girlfriend last night so not really ''with it'' yet. No big plans as of yet but will take advantage of the sunshine.

Please don't come back , snow.

Typical  Finally got motivated outside and spent a few hours digging and pottering under a grey chilly sky. The minute I get in , the sun's cracking the flags.

Lovely evening here.

Afties,  Admiring my nice clean patio after yesterday's efforts but it's gone cold again today. Hard to get motivated at the mo but keep telling myself I'll give it another hour.

Yesterday was lovely - picked a good day.

Sitting here doing nothing.

I need some inspiration.

Morning Chris  No , taccas still haven't arrived. Think I may send an e-mail.

Don't suppose an Easter egg counts as breakfast ?

Morning  Lovely sunny day here - none of the ''s'' word so will be getting outside when it warms up and then some more pricking out .

Why is it when you discipline yourself to sowing half a packet of seeds, you get millions of plants regardless ?

Have a good day everyone.

Morning - just  Have been busy last couple of days. Water feature up and running and the other one now in rockery all sorted - just needs planting now.

Just found a little dead mouse in one of the buckets that had melted snow in cos I was out of rainwater.

More pricking out today. I enjoy that

Need to catch up on all the posts - Hope everyone's well and warm.

What annuals can I sow for summer colour?

Ryan, I've bought lots of seeds from £ land over the years. Nought wrong with them.  Best bargain ever was a couple of years ago - a packet of nasturstiums with 6 different varieties in them.

The only problem being I've got them forever now  No matter how many seed pods I collect. I get more and more each year. Good job I like them.

Aldi's good for seeds as well - got some Nigella for 89p

Has war been declared in my absence ?  Just got back from shopping - no Easter eggs left in our local shopping centre so popped in Asda . BAD MISTAKE ! Every man and his dog was in there with trolleys piled high, plenty of beige and enough food to sustain a small army.  It's open tomorrow . ALL DAY !!!!

Rant over.

I'm off to construct a large piece of cake.

Well done on posting that thread, Geoff.

What Is Going On With Site??

I agree with all the above - I'm not techno- minded at all so don't want to start messing around.

It took me 3 months to post a link.
