Ow Jo, that hurts, I get it sometimes. OH got it once on the first day of our holiday to N Ireland, really limited what we could do during the week

I have been looking for the very dark coloured hellebore, but can't find one. Might go over to RHS on the weekend to see if I can find one there.

Me too, still lazing in bed, but have to get up now, else I will stay here all morning and I have to do some work. I like a lie in when I'm not working, as am usually up between 6 and 6.30 for work. Only 2 weeks of teaching left when we get back. In the mean time dissertation students waiting for responses from me, so I best get off.

Have a lovely day everyone.

Purples in my garden but what colour for you?

I love myoriental poppy, it's in totally the wrong place, but I love the splash of red. As I hear they don't like being moved I leave it where is it.

Morning all, sunny outside, but still cold. Need some warmth to get rid of the snow.

Working at home today, lots to do, but am sure will find time to keep checking in.

Verdun and GG, welcome to fork handles, lots of fun and laughing on this thread. We like a bit of banter.

Where's Geoff?

I think it's important to get a decent quality plant in the first place. I pass a garden on the way to work where they are planted at the fron of the garden next to the stone retaining wall. They just leave them there over winter and they are full of lowers every year. The garden is on the Pennine foothills.

Purples and pinks for me too, although I do love my azalea lutea. I do have. Small patch with some lime green euphorbia and an orange geum, the look lovely together.

Are you sick Bunny? Too much chocolate? I missed the name change. Feeling that way myself at the mo, OH opened the biscuits. I tried to say no, only had one, honest.

Chocolates eaten! Jonathon Creek, same old, same old! Healthy eating programme starts tomorrow, OH just sound a pack of Lidl spiced biscuits. Now I know they are there, I will have to eat them, I have no will power, sadly.

Evening, been out for fish and chips at Boundary Mill. Stopped in at the Thornton's to see if there were any Easter Eggs on offer. Only 3 diabetic choc ones left, but 50% off lots of boxes of chocolates. Needless to say, I succumbed.

what jobs done over easter.
