Congratulations Flowerchild

I tried to do some gardening this morning but the wind was crazy, I kept getting compost in my eyes. They are still pumping the drains, I am supposed to be working but struggling to concentrate.

@FC Jo popped up in the "weather" the other day, Yvie has an exciting life I work from home!

@Lottie cheers, how is the allotment?

@gardeningfantic, my iris is struggling in the wind too

Well we all seem to be suffering with various pests or poor weather.

They promised lovely weather today but still covered with grey cloud. Just to top it off they seem to be pumping out the drains on the road and the noise is that horrible vibration that makes you want to do shout at them.

This does not make sense, if you want to be bee friendly just pull it out by hand or chop it down?

@Dean and donutsmrs, still no sunshine here, send it over please

I am not happy, I popped out to measure my aquilegia and I found a pot of seedlings had been pulled out of their pot by some wicked bird, do they not realise that they can have the bugs but leave my plants alone

I have just popped out to the garden to measure mine and they are around this height. I assume if I lived somewhere warmer and wetter that they would be taller.

It is soooo cold here, I have lots of plants waiting to go out but I am feeling sorry for those that are outside already.

Well the sun did come out for half an hour and it has been warm so I gave in and planted out some tender plants, more for the light than anything. So fleece on standby.

WS thanks for the warm wishes.

Inkadog take it easy.

I am off out to a BBQ with a group of West Ham fans, wish me luck.

Well the weathermen  said it was going to be a lovely day, but so far all I can see is a thick white cloud. I need sunshine and I need it now.
