Good afternoon all,

Sorry Pat is so poorly also DD and WW's OH. Glad Hosta and OH seem a bit better. Hope all feel better soon.

Sorry to rub it in but I've had a lovely few hours in the garden with my pup 'helping'. It's good to have company in the garden again. My old German Shepherd would rather stay indoors in his last few months.

I took Kizzy to dog training classes last night and things she does quite well at home was a disaster in the class. She was so excited by the other dogs and  really showed me up. She was the youngest so hopefully she improve soon.It's like having your child back at school again and wanting them to be top of the class.

Hope everyone soon has a bit better weather soon.

Hi nutcutlet,

I was just following advice I read on internet. I put them in damp tissue paper in a sealed container. I think I'll do as you suggest and put some outside although in cornwall we don't get many frosts.

My tulip tree ( liriodenron)  flowered for the first time last year. I collected some seed and they are now in the bottom of the fridge as I read they have to have about 140 days chilling also that not many seeds are viable. Has anyone had success germinating them?

Claire Baldwin was a presenter at the Winter Olympics in spite of Russia's homophobic laws. Good for her.

Good morning all

 Managed to get Kizzy to sit still before she started eating the snowdrops.

Loved the photo of Gran with the bullock.

I'm glad Hosta was able to laugh off the comments from the Russians.

Going back to Warhorse. I saw a documentary 'The real Warhorse' which was heartbreaking. Horses and mules drowning in mud. The officers had a handbook on how to shoot the dying horses. When the Lifeguards are on parade the farriers carry axes as a reminder that they had the task of putting horses down.

On a lighter note there was another true documentary called 'Galloping Jack' He was one of the few men who was allowed to bring his horse home and they grew old together on the Isle of Wight. Most of the horses left in France were sold to the French farmers.

Well it's almost all over now and I hope everyone is looking forward to the Spring. I took the tree down this morning but left some dried up greenery to burn on the 6th.

I loved the beautiful horses in War and Peace. I noticed they were supplied by The Devil's Horsemen. They did a display at the Royal Cornwall Show a few years ago. The daughter of the owner stood on the backs of two horses and galloped round the ring having a race with another rider,. Absolutely fearless.

Good Morning all,

Hope everyone who is feeling poorly soon bucks up. Poor Hosta and OH.

Sorry some got upset about Ed's photos. I just ignore anything that upsets me. We all know Ed now and I'm sure he didn't mean to upset us. I loved the photos he posted earlier of High Force waterfall. We spent the first night of our honeymoon in High Force hotel.

Rain again. In a few months we'll be complaining about the drought and wanting rain for the gardens.
