Hi Fairy,

I hope 'stuff' gets sorted.

I've been out in the garden this afternoon spreading rotted horse poo about (or pony poo in my case). Ii's lovely to do things outside. I keep waiting for the cold frosty weather to arrive. Do you think we've escaped it this year?

Good morning all,

I'm bright and breezy this morning inspite of being a year older and I hope everyone else is feeling good too.

My intentions this morning is to cut down the cobaeas that have splawed over the border. I assumed they would be killed off in the winter but I suppose it hasn't been cold enough. Cutting them down might be the end of them but they only had a few flowers compared to the ammount of foliage so i won't be too upset.

The heavens have just opened and it was lovely and sunny earlier so I'll just have to have another cup of coffee before I venture out.

I've lots of toads laying spawn in my pond at the moment but I was really upset to see two large females with lots of males clinging on them that had burst open. One was already dead and had spawn and intestines coming out of its side. Has anyone else seen this and could it have been caused by the attentions of the males?

Thank for the greetings everyone.

I've not been arround lately, Mrs Garden because my brother and SIL have been staying while in between houses. Why the solicitors can't organise the exchanges on the same day I don't know. Just more expense putting furniture in storage for a few weeks.

It feels a bit more like spring. I saw two bumble bees this morning and the goldfish are up in the pond. The toads are also playing piggy back.

Happy joint birthday Kef.

Lovely to see the photo of the snowdrop gang. You did look harmless although you can't always go by apearances.  What was in the bags and haversacks I'd like to know?

Happy birthday GG and good morning to everyone else.

I'm looking forward to seeing photos of the Snowdrop Walk.

My brother and SIL are coming to stay for a week or two. they've exchanged contracts on their house but not on the house they are buying. They moved down from near Derby three years ago but since then my brother had a nasty accident when an angle grinder blade shattered and cut his leg.  Then his horse had to be put down after suffering colic when it was in livery when he was on holiday.   He doesn't think his leg will ever be strong enough to keep another horse. They are moving back up north to the Peak District. I hope they are happy in their new house.

Good morning all,

Hope everyone is keeping their heads above water.

Are you taking part in 'the Red Bull Storm Chasing Wind Surfing ' competition off Gwithien. Verdun?

Feel for you Matty. Hope in time you'll remember the good times with your mum.
