Dahlias - no matter what I do, they always end up as slug fodder.

Even tried to grow them in pots.

Morning everyone, Bright and sunny here.  Hoping it stays like that. Just checked my coleus and they are well away - first time I've grown them so hoping they are successful. Also hoping that the weather is OK at weekend so OH can finish what's been started in the new border.

Hope all is ok with Oscar. Bjay probally just a cold but best to get him checked over.

Off to shops now as I haven't got enough Easter eggs - hoping there's some left.

I think we should all bombard Daniel with e-mails as to what is going on with the site. Still not receiving e-mails and getting fed up with it now.

what do u think this might be

Alan - looks like a chrysalis of some form to me  - It might a butterfly or a pretty moth.

I could possibly be wrong though but I wouldn't worry about keeping it warm , they usually survive regardless.

Caz - I've tried that as well but not getting any e-maij=ls at all from the site.

I've got that weird path p thing at the bottom of the screen as well.

I can actually see some of my garden now  Seems to be a thaw but it's still snowing now and then.

Everyone seems to have had a productive morning.

Mine consisted of housework

Dove and Caz - get well soon. My sore throat has gone now so don't know what that's all about  Got off quite lightly compared to some of you.

My coleus seeds are up - more space will be required soon .

Becks - great effort  Will there be prizes ?

Sue, that's dreadful - you must be devastated . Try to retrace your steps.

Wondering how my cats would feel about a knitted coat ? Have a feeling I'ld be shredded if I even attempted to put a coat on them but your little doggy looks so cute Flo.

Can you knit a cat coat Bjay ?

Am I the only one that's not receiving any e-mails or is the site still dodgy ?

Morning everyone  Typed a post in earlier and windows decided to update and I lost the lot.

Not much to report here except more of the white stuff. We keep getting snow flurries so am hoping we don't get another dumping.

You are going to be busy Liz  Can you please send a little weather our way ?

Going to make a cuppa - woke up a bit grumpy so am laying off the coffee - feel a great urge to be outside doing something but I can't so I'm going to do housework.

Catch you all later.

Pam, I'm sure your day will be a great success. Your garden is absolutely stunning and  I look forward to seeing the next video. I thought the last one was very good, not at all shaky.

You are an inspiration to us all .

Ooooh - I want one ! May just sit her and look at that all day.

Still haven't thawed out from GC and only looked in the indoor bit. According to weatherman . it's due to hit us again In West Lancs over Easter.

Totally fed up with it now.
