What am I?

They are Californian in origin, so warm sheltered spot is best.

Morning all.

Cold and grey here, and still far too much snow to think about doing much outside.

Like Wintersong I think I shall be looking at PPPs.

Chicky I spent 6 years as a junior doctor in Nottingham, we may have some old haunts in common.

Yesterday found my Angelica gigas seeds sown fresh in the Autumn, in the greenhouse, had germinated. Always gives you a lift when new life starts appearing.

Have a good day everyone.

Spring Bulbs not flowering

Don't worry, I am in S. Yorkshire, and other than a few Snowdrops and Aconites peaking through the snow, there is nothing else.

It is still winter.

Morning all.

It was lovely when I got up, bright sunshine. Went to the dentist, and came out to thick freezing fog.

Sorry things are not so bright Edd, having spent a lot of the last 10 years in a similar place, I have found that looking for very small positives wherever I can, gradually starts to improve your overall condition.

CBT has taught me that, praising yourself for seemingly insignificant achievements, can build up to produce significant gains. However the opposite is also true, so look for minor positives.

I make it a rule to never date clients.....................well more of a guideline really.

Sunny here as well.

Been out pruning the coloured stems on the Cornuses. Seems a sham when they were looking so pretty, but I have a lot to do, as I got very behind in the Autumn.

Evening all.

So sorry about your Goose RB, we had a pair of geese in the field next door, when we first moved here. They were a never ending source of amusement, except in Spring when the males thoughts turned to luurrvve, and he used to start honking at 4a.m.

Busy day removing debris from the various storms since Christmas. A few old favourites are definitely damaged beyond repair, which is sad, but it does give me lots of room for new stuff.

Steak for tea, so just opening a nice Claret to go with it.

Have a lovely evening all.

Afternoon all.

Very sunny here, although probably not as warm as with you Verdun.

Been out removing all the damaged branches from various shrubs, although most of garden still snow covered.

I think I am going to have lots of spaces....... and spaces mean, new plants.

Still buzzing after the rugby, and Spur's great performance.

Enjoy your afternoons.

What a weekend!

England beat Wales in an epic, and Spurs do the Arsenal at WHL.

Over the moon.

Have not been on here much, as in training for both games, the mental strain is, at times unbelievable.

Hope everyone is ok.

The sun has got his hat on....

Still several inches of snow in my garden, Sheffield, but it is sunny.
