Me too Verdun, but not quite so early as yours, you are probably 2c warmer than here. Its more of a cold wind here and damp, most days in the clouds.

Thats really nice Tootles, its lovely to have the photos to look back on. I have one just bolted onto paving slabs, perfectly adequate.

Is there a comfy chair in there? Need something to sit on when you take your tea in there to get away from it all.

I start mine mid March indoors, here is a very good informative site, this is exactly what I do. If you follow this you will have a wonderful show right through till Autumn.Dead heading is very important to keep the flowers coming. I always pick off the first buds to enable the plant to put all energy into growing first.

Is Stacey on a Samsung tablet, I could never get the icons, or see pm's, which I thought was a techi problem and always blamed the site, turned out to be useless browser that automatically comes with tablet, I put 'Chrome' on and now its perfect, everything works perfectly.

Wintersong, thats one gorgeous pup. You will have some fun with him.

RB, you are naughty  I didnt know where to look, Spring in the air in your household as well.

Our Doves are at it as well. Both male and female blackbirds in the garden but nothing in that department as yet.

Thank you RB for all the kind thoughtful and extremely helpful pm's.

You have been so very helpful and supportive to me, both in just light friendly chats and also very useful help with coping with my mums problems.  

Happy New Year to you and family
