I planted Begonia bulbs about 3 weeks ago in 2 baskets and put them in a bright, not too hot place as I was advised too. They are starting to come through now but one has grown significantly more than the others and has actually produced a flower. Is this normal or can I - should I do something to try to stop it flowering?  

Something better change [ and it has ]

I had a similar day yesterday. It was so pleasant out there. I too managed to shed some layers and feeling less restricted I got lots done...brilliant!

Oh how good to read something possitive here for a change.  So just for the record I too feel happy happy ,happy. So far I've had a lovely day doing what I want to do.No gardeneing for me today but I have enjoyed the last 30 minutes sitting in the conservatory looking out into the garden mentally planning what to do or change out there and watching the birds.  My OH is working happily upstairs in his office and I'm looking forward to my son returning home from his weekend away and hearing all about it. So yes a very happy bunny here

Evening all  

It's been a glorious day today but unfortunately no gardening for me instead we've been stuck indoors  for last few days decorating. Hopefully get it finished tomorrow. 

Anyone back the winner in the National? OH & I were only saying today that the whole event has been scaled down over the years. We're not too far from Aintree and I remember the Red Arrows used to fly over as did Concord on Grand National day

Threading...How Does it Work?

A cotton thread is pulled along unwanted hair in a twisting motion, to trap hair in a mini lasso, and lifts hair right out of the follicle.

I'm only 27 so of course it's only my eyebrows that need seeing to  but let me just say on-one has ever mini lassoed me!

Re unwanted facial hair...try threading it's flipping brilliant! I've only ever had my eyebrows done but I will say it's more uncomfortable than painful, it's quicker than tweezers, doesn't irritate like wax etc and it lasts longer than anything else I've tried.

Well would you believe it...I'm 27 too but can't quite fathom how I have a son 2 years older and a daughter 1 year younger than I am   funny thing is though I remember the long hot summer of '76  I was still at school and it was the year I met my 1st love (oh I really thought I was going to marry him...as you do when you're 15)
