Was thinking about putting washing out but it's snowing again.  It started just as we arrived at the GC . Enjoyed looking around but the wind is bitter here so didn't go outside but earmarked it for if and when the weather gets warmer. Didn't buy any plants but did buy some Morning Glory. Geoff mentioned Star of Yalta and I remember googling it. Was quite taken with the lovely deep purple colour so thought I'ld give them a try.

Just a question of finding room now, I'm struggling for space as well, Jo. Decided to take your advice and delay sowing them until weather a bit better. Apart from that, they grow like triffids once they're germinated.

Hi Flo, Glyn and Derek.

Need feeding again. I'm sure it's this cold weather. Can't stop lately . I'll be joining WW next.

Easter bonnet making sounds fun, Becks.

Morning Dove, Gary and Derek , Still got a sore throat but nothing's developed so hoping it's just a strep. Does anyone use a handkerchief these days? I do but the amount of people around who cough and splutter without using anything is unbelievable. No wonder these things spread so easily.

Snow is slowly dissipating but have heard we are due for more at the weekend.

Did anyone see the prof. on the news last night who says we will all be getting extreme weather in the future? Depressed me that much I turned him off. !

I like to think it's just a weather pattern.

Off to another GC this morning. It's not too far away and has been recommended by friends of ours. I will try to be good.

Nice to see Bunny back.

British Summertime starts next.

What a joke .

Don't be disheartened , Dan, we've had snow in April and don't forget , Easter's early this year.

Have a little faith. The sun will shine again.

Off to bed the Huskies down for the night .

I need mine tied up.  They keep migrating to the fridge. Feeling peckish again, especially after all this talk about cake. Liz, that looks lovely.

Bjay - is there no end to your talents ?

TIPS ........

Here's a good one. If you have a sickly plant you can help it recover with an asprin. I've used this method and it really does work.

Here' s a link for the science geeks.

Also, A dose of epsom salts for leaf colouration for pelargoniums - it's magnesium sulphate. One tablespoon in 1 litre of water.

Love the knee pads , Figrat.  Brilliant idea !

Chicken, pasta, salad, and anything else that's lurking in the fridge

Just realised - got that carried away I forgot lunch.  I can see the choc getting demolished after as well.

I have just awarded myself the prestigous title of top pricker.   2 hours but all my babies are coming on great guns . Still need an extension,

Caz and Geoff I would willingly sort yours out but I'm lacking in the space department.

Flo, I have indeed been a busy little bee.

I vote Bjay to appear on masterchef.

Hello Sash - how are you doing ?
