Good morning all,

Hope you don't feel too bad with your 'nasty tablet', Jo. How long to do have to take them?

It's plus 8C here and our bit of Cornwall will have rain tomorrow according to the forcast. I've got a daffodil in flower but must be an early variety.

Best of luck with Ofsted, Dove.

 

 

What's the weather like in your area?

Just been out for an hour or so doing a bit more clearing up in the garden and not as cold as I expected.

Did you see any baby seals at Godrevy, Verdun? I once saw a seal there with a little yellow hat on and no-one believed me but when they release rescued seals back into the wild they sometimes do put a marker with a number on to track their progress.

Ungrateful little b*****s, aren't they Chris? I'll still carry on feeding them and hope somebody futher south is feeding mine.

That makes perfect sense about the water, Geoff.

It is sad that another big chain of shops has gone but it is so easy to shop on line. What will the high street look like in another 20 years or so.

I've got a lot of blackbirds too, Jean, mostly males. Chris Packham said on A-Z of gardening that they are migrants and our local birds go further south.

I heard that hot water can freeze quicker than cold. Is that true? Hot stones seems a good idea. Water hasn't frozen here yet.

Hi Jean,

I saw the bat flowers growing in the tropical biomes at the Edan Project in Cornwall. Amazing looking plants. They were growing in very hot humid conditions so I don't know how easy that would be to replicate.

Just watched the A-Z of gardening.  Chris Packham said the birds we have in our garden now are migrants from Scandinavia and the continent and our local bluetits,blackbirds and robins have migrated further south. Here's me feeding the birds hoping they'll pay me back in the spring and summer by eating all the bugs when all the time I've been feeding foreigners.

Thanks all. I'll watch it on IPlayer.

I wish I lived nearer to come to your open day Pam. Do you have to be inspected every year to be included in The Yellow Book? 

Shame on you, Becks.  I still love snow. Well done with Jess's bedtime.

Good morning all,

Wet and soggy here.

Your beef wellingtons do look scrummy. We had chicken wellingtons (if there is such a thing) with mushrooms and chorizo.

Have you a date yet for your open garden yet, Pam?

I thought the second part of A-Z of gardening  was on over the weekend but couldn't find it.I saw last weeks and am going to have a go at apple grafting. I've got three trees about 15 years old  and two planted last year.

Aren't dogs little darlings. It's usually something dead or fox poo they roll in. I bet he thinks he smells divine.
