Tropical moments, sounds tempting but think (hope) I shall be waiting some years yet! Someone I worked with called them "power surges"!

The job sounds to be going well Sue, you sound really happy

Evening All!

Hello Andy

Some great pics. That allotment is looking really smart Dean!!
I love those hoops on that raised bed.

Figrat, you have been busy down that back passage. Looks great

Becks, you sound to be getting the cooking bug! No wonder, Bunny sounds to have been making some lovely things.

Cold, cold, cold
The sleet/rain has stopped for the minute but it is now just grey and dreary.

Glad I got outdoors yesterday. Today am having to settle for chocolate biscuits as consolation while I get on with some work.

Come on Spring! Hurry up!

Evening All!

Bjay, that's not so good for your daughter, must be a worry

I say ginnel (from Lancs originally, now "on the other side" ), can't think what the phrase would be round here. I have heard of snicket though. Will have to ask OH.

I feel so much better just for having got some things started. A potter about does wonders for my sanity!
I need some more compost now though. (My OH always asks why...you got some last year!)

I planted up my pack of Mirabilis. I haven't grown these before but at 89p for a pack of 5 roots, worth a try. They looked very much like carrots that were well past their prime! Will have to see what happens!

Mission accomplished!
A pleasant 12C in greenhouse. Some seeds sown for my heated propagators.
Some Sungold, some Roma tomatoes (give them a try), a few baby cucumbers, Cleome (no success last year, will have another go) and some Schizanthus.

Last year I lost quite a few seedliings, I think it was the larva of fungus gnats that ate the roots.
Had a wander round the garden too for a bit of a survey. Looks like I am going to be busy! Some parts need a bit an overhaul. There are some shrubs that were in when we moved in 9 1/2 years ago. I left tem as there wasn't much. Some things have not performed well enough. They need to go to put in something I prefer!

Quick coffee then school pick up!

Afternoon all!
Yippee, it is NOT snowing here. I will be able to get out into the GH without freezing to death.

Thank you very much !

Dean, are you leaving a space between the : and ) when you make your smiley on iPad?
It works on mine if there isn't a gap!

Loads of pages since I was on here. Trying to cook tea while doing school work, popping on here in between. Multitasking
