It was OH and daughter doing the shifting Runny

She treated herself to a pink tool set and bag for the move and takes great delight in using it 

Can't remember the last time I had a donut like that - really made me drawl  (sigh)

A lot of poorly pets/animal visitors today - hope they are all improving soon

Well done Verdun, we often say something to the assistant if they are having aggro - in Waitrose once we got the manager for the poor girl who was being assailed by a Do you know who I am, I shop here for a reason type person.- she was in tears!

Visited hospital - Daughter now lives nearby, visited her- involved moving boxes, going to tip, visiting old flat for more rubbish in another town - result no GC visit.

Wrapped up with fleece and bubble wrap all young plants, Hope it's not as bad as forecast

Thanks Liri, I knew it had to be sawn through but was unsure what else. Seems a big job though.

Previous owners kept it in check but.......

Ooh know cat wars and poorly cats = thing is wounds in cats can become infected very quickly - how is the actual eye/

keep a very close eye on him

Not been visiting you all, health problems AGAIN and feeling a bit low, 

We have successfully moved daughter and fiance into their first owned house - oh the excitement a washing line and a doorbell can cause 

In the loft they found the remains of a model railway with track but not rolling stock. OH was very excited!!

Seems I am in charge of the garden which seems a suntrap with a shed

Ivy up wall of house - looks like 2 plants with 3-4 trunks each about 6-8ins in diameter. They have to remove it but no money for tree surgeon - any ideas??

There is also one on brick boundary wall in garden - same thing needs to be removed

Lavender may take some time as it's a shrub

Sweet peas I find suddenly appear but don't take too long - good luck.

I sowed some in pots in January and just put a few in as a back up direct to soil a couple of days ago.

GG just put your seed tray outside - that's what I did and mine have germinated.

Love all your seedlings Kittty - what a great present from your family 


Planted out 3 Amaranthus today in a square with 6 Orlaya - just hope i've hardened them off enough after todays weather forecast

I'm sure I posted earlier but can't see it - fuddled brain today

I did say my dicentra Alba is in glorious flower but a deep red one I have is always much later flowering.

Finally planted up my potato bags and just generally doing odds and ends

Did I see mention of cake?? Not really into sausage rolls!

Found a dahlia in the depths of garage, put into pot but have a feeling will end up on the compost - still giving it a go - think its a Honka as well

Daughter is getting the keys to her house tomorrow (wild clapping) We are unsure whether we are required to help, have offered to clean though. If not I shall be in MY garden wondering what she wants me to do to her new garden
