We only have the very tips showing in our garden Betsy2. At the local market yesterday the flower stall was selling bunches which are the first I've seen. Wonder if they were grown in the uk.

I'm loving the names that we give our cats. My sister's is called Cloughie after Brian Clough as her husband is a Nottingham Forest fan. Mum and dad are the proud owners of Tinky-woooo!

I tend to give everything a name. We've got our annual visit from Plucky and Ploppy at the moment; two very rotund pheasants. Then there's Ricardo and Ralph; two very friendly robins that greet us most mornings whilst waiting for their breakfast. There's also Nevil the newt who resides in the compost bin and Oliver the owl who does a lot of twit twit tawwoooooing!
