Hey everyone - found you again! Popped in to say hi! What a difference to the forum, ongoing update I understand - hardly recognised you! 

Went to local plant fair (in a village called Wortley for those folk near me). It was earlier this year and had transformed into a plant and craft fair. Beautiful crafts but only 3 plant stalls! Still I managed to sneak away with a lovely Scabiosa Misty Blue, a few plant supports and a little stone rabbit. Took son who just about remained intact after scuttling around on his scooter. 

Dove, so sorry to hear about ma. Hope your sadness is wrapped tight in a blanket of happy memories. Love and best wishes.

Got some nice tulips but not much else yet in the garden. Shouldn't. the rhododendrons be doing their thing by now? I'm sure the 'late' one has flowered early but still waiting for the Easter two. 

Lilac still looking pathetic after a mad prune two years ago.

Bowles mauve won't stop flowering - every day since I got it last ?june/July, including xmas! it needs a good prune to bush up but far too lovely! 

OH cycling at weekend in Peak district, so just might pop over to Chatsworth.

Oh! - that reminds me -newsflash - got tickets for Tatton Flower show! so excited- my first ever! 

Hope you are all are well.

Have we said sarracocca? Mines by the front door and it knocks my socks off. 

agree with philaldelphus, pinks, lilac.

But the best for me was a special flower in Barbados, I'll try to remember what it was...

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Started to clear / tidy the bottom of the garden in the kids unused play area (almost unused!)  . Moved all ugly old flag/stepping stones (which were multifunctional for kids to play on whilst kepting shoes clean and feet off plants) all now behind the shed and I've put all unused pots, buckets etc on them.Bit more weeding in general. Found a spot for Acer Butterfly, which has been struggling in a pot for a couple of years. Tidied area behind bench, planted some lamina to see if it will take. Pondered over a new greenhouse. Come in for a bath before going to mums. Weather not too bad.

Evening all, 

well done on your Makaton signing Clari  . (Twitter link worked a treat) .

Slight differences in how we sign but that's quite normal.

Who provides your training? And can we get 'insideinformation' on which signs are coming up on the next Makaton Mondays? oooo, can we make suggestions? 


Thoughts as with everyone for those affected by the bombings. Glad you are safe Obelixx.

Dont think I've even seen the garden today

Thanks Runny, Clari did some stuff at her work, I have the personal connection but embarrassingly I forgot until Clari reminded me!
