Good morning

Not a cloud in the sky (yet).  It looks lovely out there. Hope your clouds pass you by Dove

DD, shame about your cosmos.  Mine are still on the windowsill and it will be a wrench to let them go out into the big wide world

Looks as though your tablet is still working Winter - won't say a word

Funnily enough two bedrooms here could do with decorating KEF so with DD and Panda being experts now we should be OK

It's my birthday

Ooh, you're not letting on how many bumps you're getting Fruitcake.  Hope you have had a great day

Panda.  Reminds me of late m.i.l. who, on seeing the streaky mess of her newly painted door said "what, another coat, the first one looks bad enough".  I'm sure yours will look great

Verdun - be careful when trying out your niece's sunbed.  We don't want to see a red and wrinkly Poldark

Looking good John.

Welcome Hours go by.  I've always used toilet roll tubes for sweet peas but only in plastic bag lined beer boxes (well the men in the house leave so many lying around).  It's great to be able to plant the whole thing out without root disturbance but always either bury the rim of cardboard or tear it off.  It acts like a wick taking moisture away from the plant.

Congratulations Yvie.  Must go and look up your petunia

Trying to avoid this thread.  Mint Yoyos were the best - they got smaller as well. On second thoughts, maybe I got bigger

Fidget that's a hoopoe, gorgeous isn't it.  Only ever seen one in the bird book

Just back from a very muddy walk with just one dog - good luck Bekkie
