I'm happy that spring really is trying now. Spent yesterday in garden. Sat and read for awhile then tidied up. Got more supplies today, so hope I can carry on tomorrow

Good Evening FORKERS

Evening all. Got some pots to put Lily bulbs in. Also manure, compost plant food and Vine weevle stuff. Couldn't resist some Primula Suzette which have beautiful frilly blooms. They were half price so really I saved some money.

Yes Verdun it was Harvington. I ordered a double pink spotted and a double yellow spotted as well. They all look so beautiful - it will be interesting to see them in my garden.

Cheerypeabrain that really is a lovely colour.

Dove it would be great to see some pics.

Verdun you are right I want them all, have ordered double green and double yellow which will arrive later in the month so should be good by next winter.

A couple of weeks back one grew from nothing- I thought the one that had been there had died. It's another purple. I'm so pleased with the find.

Really enjoyed it. The bit about the shaded part of the garden was really good.

This is more like it. Another sunny day. I even sat out reading for a while. Have been feeding with fish, blood and bone (is that the order?). Then mulching with manure. Have got about half my pots done.Then watered back managing not to flood indoors today.

Fingers crossed that this weather continues
