Morning lovelies!

Wasn't in a chatty mood yesterday for some reason. Just caught up on the gossip around the country.

Rainy here.

Geoff, no, the police never came back. The parents arrived back from hols late last night. All is very quiet today.

Pam, I use a steam generator. Quite pricey, unless you find a bargain on ebay like me, but boy, do they cut down the time/hard work. It's a Morphy Richards Jet Steam. Would never go back to a 'standard' iron now.

Thanks Becks  The reason I am asking is that I need to buy a new iron

Lovely pics lovetogarden

The only place we could grow from seed and plant on is on the allotment but we suffer badly with club root

I love the scent from Wallflowers on a warm Spring day - now is the time to plant them

I buy our plants bare rooted as it is a much cheaper option for us - this year I phoned to see if the plants were available and was taken aback to be told that all the plants had rotted in the field due to the weather and the only plants available were in pots

Luckily I managed to source some from elsewhere - these plants are quite small but I am hoping they will grow away quickly

I haven't grown Wallflowers in containers but can't see any reason not to - dwarf varieties would probably be more suitable than the really tall ones  

Here are some flowers from last year
