I'll stir the pot 

To me Monty isn't like Marmite love / hate him. I know some members have heard him give talks and enjoyed them, I have one of his books. I can take him or leave him I would prefer to see plants rather than dogs on GW however cute they are. 

Lizzie I did not realise Rachel was that age it only seems a couple of years ago since she was having another child.

I don't know about applying soot but I do know that before we went smokeless around here we didn't get much black spot on roses. Typhoo I don't think people are burning coal on their log burners, I imagine the carbon from coal was the think that helped

Sleep well Pat 

I have nearly declared it Spring here  I just went out for a wander ( garden not that big ) but I now have dirty nails and a couple of buckets of stuff to cut up for the compost bins. Tomorrow I need to pot on baby FIDGETs  aka as Brugmansia  

Washing has actually dried outside 

Lots of insects here Runny, especially on the crocus and hellebores. The birds are complaining when I go in the old GH so guess they are nest building in the conifers nearby. No butterflies. 

Birds seem very hungry, they appear as soon as I open the blinds. I think Sparrow hawk must have young as it is coming regularly I know it has to eat but  Have noticed that the blackbirds are tolerating the magpies as it seems they scare the s.hawk away. 

Fidget I hope you have your new appliances

Happy weekend to you Runny and everyone. 

Let us hope the Forum breathalyzer works tonight ..spelling a bit
