Yes, medic answer on Tuesday morning - I hope

That was certainly a big jump Dove - I thought they were supposed to question jumps like that now.

I thought I should mention that BusyL is coming to stay for a few days but she beat me to it. Really looking forward to seeing her again.

I have gone in medical speak from 'uncertain' I will be able to fly to France to 'maybe' I will be able to, so fingers crossed all for tuesday

 Today I have left annuals in GH - very cool here and don't want to lose them.

No shopping from now on as  saving pennies for a trip to GC with BusyL and the Malvern Show.

I do need to buy some basket plants I have some but need some trailing and a stand out one, unsure whether to go for white or deep blue (if there is such a thing)

Just come to my garden B**??!!!! things germinate all over the place - not fussy which bed they choose. Spend more time weeding little oaks than anything else. They have just started this year


It's right time to start, have more than one acorn, keep damp in leafy compost rather than multi-purpose. leave pots whatever in a shady place and check them for growth.

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


Having a go at a cut flower patch...

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.
