This is my tatty cobaea taken today. I grew the plants form seed but they didn't start flowering until late autumn. They are still making lots of growth and have sprawled all over the border. There were never many flowers. I've kept one plant in the greenhouse so if it survives the winter I'll plant it out down the bottom of the garden.

Good morning all,

I love my winter honeysuckle and even get bumble bees on it on sunny days.

Happy Birthday Woody,

I wondered where you were going when you said you'd won a key .

It was lovely to see Pam's garden on Garden Revival last night. So much hard work but well worth it. I'm inspired to take more cuttings now.

I'm expecting a BT engineer this morning. I haven't been able to receive calls since the 3rd but could make calls. I've done the tests suggested by BT by plugging other phones into the test socket but received a text yesterday to say their  tests indicated an internal fault and if so would be charged £129. When I rang BT again a very nice man said 'to please to let the engineer come as it is very least that I will be charged'. Just keeping my fingers crossed.

This is my pond with a sort of stumpery. (taken last year daffs not out there yet). My son had some trees taken down so asked if the digger could move them beside the pond. I loved the lush planting round the ponds on the great garden revival. Going to try to put more plants in this year. Flag iris is the only plant that seems to do well at the moment.

good morning all,

Hope everyone is feeling better now especially as it's friday.

It's a dry day at the moment. the weatherman said that we've had rain every day here in Cornwall since the 3rd of December.

I'm going to make a start on planting the 25 rosa rugosa plants today to make a hedge across a narrow bit of the field. they are said to be rabbit proof as they are very prickly but there are some very tough rabbits around here.

Well I must make a start. 'I may be gone some time'.


You Know You Enjoy Your Garden When...

Good afternoon all,

Lovely pussycat and a lucky one too. 

Amazing achievement Matty. You should feel proud of yourself.

It's been a lovely day here and I had a couple of hours or so in the garden today. I even worked up a sweat or I should say a lady-like glow. My dad used to say if you see a farmer in shirt sleeves in January it's a sign that there is bad weather to come. I didn't see any farmers but they would have been happy to be in shirt sleeves today.

I moved a willow from the veg garden down to the bottom of the field. It was a cutting last year and had grown over six feet. I also pulled up some more brambles. They've spred from a hedge and are rooting into the lawn. They are faily easy to pull up now with the wet ground but I'll have to keep on top of it.

There's lots of snowdrops open now. There was only one on NYD. Two daffodils are in flower. They were in a mixed bag so must be a very early variety. Some of the others are only just showing.

I relly enjoyed being out today . The arteries have been declogged and vit D topped up a little.
