I took this photo today. The pink ones aren't in flower yet and there's no sign of some very dark, almost black, ones i planted last year

Good afternoon,

It's been a lovely day here (sorry all those who've had a cold wet one) although Dean is going for one . Can't believe that we are going to have frost and possibly snow here on Monday.

I've been spreading compost on some flower beds today and unearthed a big slow worm. I covered him up again so I hope he'll be okay when  the cold weather comes back.

No,sorry, Geoff. Hope she's okay. She's got two houses and gardens to look after now.

Good afternoon all. Bunny close your eyes. This is my dog when he was a bit younger pleased with himself because he caught a poor rabbit with myxomatosis.

I hope Bunny doesn't get her toes mixed up!

Oh, Jean, perhaps if we have a better summer I'll have more luck with cobaea.

Good morning Frozen Forkers.

It's my grandaughter's 10th birthday today, Liz. She's having a party with her friends. Would your OH not like a party and play games with his friends?

It's looks lovely outside but was really cold when I took the dog out earlier. Might do a bit of indoor gardening this morning then go outside later. I bought a glory lily tuber and will pot that up later. Has anyone grown that before?

Why were you disappointed with your cobaea last year, Jean? I sowed some about 4 days ago. I've never grown them before but they look beautiful. I was going to put some outside when it warms up and keep some in the conservatory.

Back from our visit to Bosvigo. Only the small woodland garden was open so I was a bit disappointed as we expected to spend the afternoon there. Didn't see Carol Klein, she must have been in the warmth inside having a cup of tea. The gardens look stunning in your photo Liz. We'll have to go back in the summer.

Good morning all,

Hope all are well. 

Really excited today. Going to visit Bosvigo Gardens near Truro. It's their hellebore day. They have a special open day every year for charity. Their daughter was sadly killed in the Boxing Day tsunami in 2004 so today the charity is Shelterbox. Carol Klein is opening it.

Will take some photos. I'll report back later. Must go and get my Artic gear on. Freezing here.

Good morning all from a stalking forker,

Hope everyone is okay. I do try to keep up with you all even though I don't post very often.

I decided to join the local garden club even though I'm not too much of a joiner. They had a talk by one of the owners of Fentongollen flower farm. They have hundreds of areas of daffodils also sheep, cereals and also raise cauliflower plants that they sell on to other farmers. He said every cauli that we bought in a supermarket was probably started on his farm. The special hybrid seeds are bought from Tailand and cost £27 for a thousand. The seeds we buy wouldn't give the results that the supermarkets demand that's why the seed is so expensive.

I looked on their website and a bunch of daffs cost over £15 by post.

An interesting talk all the same. The next meeting has a speaker talking about Heligan so I'll look forward to that.

Hope your rats are sorted Flo. My four chickens lost their husband to a fox about five weeks ago and still seem nervous. I think animals do form relationships with each other and miss them when they are gone.
