Thats the trouble with having pets, they dont live for very long and then we are heartbroken when they go. So sorry Lizzie for your loss, he had a lovely life with you.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Ground frozen solid in the garden, much to early for me to Spring prune so did some greenhouse work. Does that count. Potted on dozens of fuchsia cutting from last sept/oct. Probably about 70.  Potted a load of rose cuttings from a bunch I had for my birthday.

Pricked out Mullien banana and custard, seeds from the 'Seed Swap'  thread, lovely little plants. Potted up rooted 'pinks'.  Gave everthing a little water,  thinking of sowing some sweet peas middle of the month.



paper whites

Patricia, have you actually smelt those paperwhites, my mum, daughter and myself had to put them outside. I think some people like them, not anyone in my family though.

I have never had perennial ones. I grow lots of seeds every year for the garden and the tubs, its very easy, every one germinates and you get hundreds in a packet of seeds.

I take it Gypsophilia and Gypsophila are the same plant?

In the town quite near to me,  Launceston, there were, at my last count, ten charity shops.  Its such a tiny little place to have so many, its such a shame that the local shopkeepers have had to give up because the rates are so high. The charity shops dont pay rates, t least that is what I heard.

Not bad SGL. Everything concidered.

I havent had a very good week, up until 6.30 am on Tuesday night/Weds morning, couldnt get mum working, you know. She was in a lot of pain by then, but not bad now, I am just listening to make sure she has gone to sleep.

I have this Ad at the top of my screen at the moment, looks good and seems simple enough to fix up. I have never had one but it looks a lovely thing to do.
