Morning All.

Lovely morning here in Lincolnshire. slight frost but no ice on the pond.

I'm waiting for my order from Thompson and Morgan I ordered via the Daliy Mail, begonias a few other things, i've forgotten what, so will be a surprise when they arrive.

Have a good day.

Sounds idyllic Lizzie. Hope if my daughter decides to get married again, she's had one go but got a rotter, she would go for something like that. She and her partner are busy getting their home together and show no interest in marriage, perhaps a case of once bitten.

looks great Flo. I expect you are busy planning to set it up and with so many lovely plants to choose from it will  no doubt be a great pleasure. Could just do with some warmer weather.

LeadFarmer, great looking garden! congratulations.

We are always looking for ways to improve ours.

Thanks for sharing everyone.

Frogspawn 2013

We have more frogspawn this year than we have ever had and we have lived here since 1965. Everyday we get more and more Some that was laid first is looking a bit manky but hopefully the rest will have a chance.

What's the weather like in your area?

Nr Lincoln.

Bright sunshine and a degree warmer than yesterday reaching the dizzy heights of 8c. but it is creeping up, so not too bad.

Hi everyone.

Bjay, yes it works for peas, we have done some several times and have got some on the go now. If you are troubled with mice digging them up, snails or pigeons its a good idea. We have got ours in the greenhouse to give them a bit of a head start, so you have to be careful not to over water them, a mistake we have made in the past.

Been to town and of course came back with a couple of things I didn't actually go for including some more trailing begonia corms. I've lost a couple of mine over the winter, they have gone all mushy, so thought I would replace them.

Is this small text a thing that is going to stay? Most annoying, I know you can adjust it but it is a bit of a bind.

Bjay. - Hope your foot continues to improve

Of to get tea ready.

Morning All.

Got to go into town today to get paint for the newly repaired gate, one job that got done over the Easter weekend, to blooming cold to be outside. OH managed to get some pricking out done, french marigold and some potting up, just wish it would warm up

Will have a look round Wilko's to see if they have got any bargains.

Not much else to report in this neck of the woods.

Catch you later, new and old forkers.

Hi Becks.

I wanted the rose compost because I'm putting them in pots, just gives them  the correct soil for the plant when confined to a pot, it's got a bid more body. If I were planting in a border I would put my homemade compost and bonemeal in the hole to give them a good start, well rotted manure dug in, would be even better, if you can get it..

Just been out to pot up a couple of roses,Little White Pet, to have on the patio to find that the compost we bought was the wrong sort We ask the chap at the garden centre to load us a bag of Tree, Shrub and Rose compost and he gave us hanging basket compost, should have checked as he loaded it I suppose, but we bought grow bags and some more stuff and didn't notice.

Will now have to make another journey to GC

Sound as if everyone's been busy today, but it's still too cold to be out for long.

Leftovers for tea then a relaxing evening after having to family over yesterday.
