Morning all, lovely and sunny here, so lots to do.

Tulips are just starting to open.

My chaufeur will be picking me up later for the drive to the cabin, so anyone who wants a lift, let me know.

Well if the party is fancy dress, I shall be in torn up clothes, with zips and safety pins, and my hair dyed green. Come to think of it, I havent really got enough hair to dye it, and I dont think a mohican would work either. Promise that there will be no gobbing, I wasnt that sort of a punk.

I have managed to make some space in the greenhouse, so I can now move some plants out there, from the window sills. The OH will be pleased, until she realises that there are plenty more seeds to be sown.

A bit of mid-day shade is good, because it sometimes allows the flowers to last more than 1 day.

I am sure you know this but it is too early to be planting them outside, as they are very cold sensitive. Even when they are inside being next to a cold window at night can damage the foliage. I dont plant them out till June.

Morning all. Seems to be a lot of sad news on here this morning, my sympathy to all concerned.

Have managed to plant out some of my Autumn sown seeds this morning, my Scabious Chile Black has made far more substantial plants than, when I Spring sow it.

Mandarin ducks have been more daring today, coming out of pond and sitting on the lawn.

Sentimental Plants

Lycnis coronaria. It was the first plant I grew from seed, which came from my FILs garden. That was over 20 years ago, but I still grow the seeds every few years to replace those that have died.

My FIL helped to get me interested in gardening when I got married and bought our current house, which had a lot of garden that had not been tended for many years. I grow many plants that were seeds, cuttings or divisions from plants in his garden, that he showed me how to take.

I sometimes wonder what he would make of what I have turned the garden into and hope that he would approve.

Yes easy to look after and you can split them fairly frequently to make new plants for free.
