Morning peeps.

Lots to do today. Want to plant some things I bought the other day and sort out and feed the rest of the borders. Bit grey here, but milder, ideal for getting out there.

Hope you get out of the trip to Liverpool Jean, I don't like big cities either, much prefer pottering in the garden. Trouble is there's always another job to do at this time of year.

Sounds as though you have a fair amount of work in the garden to get through  Bunny

Look after that finger Dave, sounds painful

Away to get bacon and egg before venturing outside.

Will post some before and after pics later for you to have a nosey at Becks

The garden that is, nothing to do with frontals.

Enjoy your gardening as AT would say.

Well done Derek. I often feel like tackling litter louts, and have done in the past, but people today are so aggressive, it really makes you think twice. That's another gripe, rudeness. Please and thank you don't exist in some people vocabulary - and bad language.  Well I could go on and on. There seems to be no end to my ranting at the moment must be tired, it's been a long day.

Chris.

Just got back from shopping trip to GC.

Oh phoned ahead to make sure they had got the growbags in stock that he need, same make he used last year, yes they had them in stock. We went 40 miles, not only for them, I hasten to add, only to find they had sold out. Apparently someone had just been in and bought the last 18 and they weren't having any more because the manufacturer had put the price up. Umm, very convienient, or am I being cynical. OH not impressed, still chuntering on. They had others at the price quoted to him this morning

Any way managed to get some other bits and pieces so the trip wasn't entirely wasted.

Garden looking good Becks, you'll soon be set for the big spring sowing.

Both me and my OH hate litter louts, as you say Sinevegas, why do they drop things all over the place. We can home from Newark through an area known as Stapleford Wood on Thursday. Lovely trees, Rhododendrons, pathways, and a lovely place for a walk, with or without a dog,  and low and behold in the car park was a bright red settee abandoned by some thoughtless yobs. It must have been further to take it there than the local tip. maybe the tip was closed when they needed to get rid of it. The council provide good facilities in this area for getting rid of unwanted items, so why no use them.

WHY, What do these people have in their heads, it certainly isn't brains. They have no pride in anything.

I taught my children to put any rubbish in their pockets, until they got home, not to drop it on the floor.

It certainly is a throwaway society.

I have got to the age where I don't really care what people think of me. I am polite, well mannered and I think kind to others. If people don't like me that's their problem. I have friends from all walks of life, colour and creed..

I was born towards the end of the war, in a very " working class " area, but that was a long time ago, and I am a completely different person to how I was when I was younger. Life's pleasures and knocks colour how you turn out.

I'm with Sam, live for now, today is the most important day of your life, enjoy it.

I'm just thankful I'm still here.

Morning everyone.

Just making my list of seeds and fertilizer required, then off to JTF, see what bargains they have got, then GC. Expect it will be an expensive trip Got to make the most of the dry weather, sun trying to come out to play.

Bought 2 clematis from Morrisons yesterday, still small, but they will grow, hopefully. £2 each, so pleased with that, only thing is I was swapping and changing them about and ended with 2 the same when I got home.DOH

I like the sound of the tree lily, quite a lot for sale in the catalogues, be interest to hear how they perform. Stargazer are a bit too fragrant for me, but very pretty. Must get my pots of lilies sorted.

Have a good day folks.

I have just ordered some free summer bulbs, you pay for postage, from the Daily Mail offer, supplied by T & M. I have had plug plants from them in the past and have always found them to give good service. Hope it is the same this time

Glorious Sunshine 80c in conservatory. Been in the garden pruning clematis and general tidy up, feels almost warm in spot sheltered from the breeze. Great!!

I love Kites, and all birds of prey, we don't get them this far north as yet, plenty of buzzards though..

Just off again.

Enjoy your day.

Chris.
