Cut the grass today and it really shows the amount of moss in the lawn. I've never had this much before. A lot of hard work ahead to get it under control. One positive though is that, close up, it's a lovely bright colour.

By heck - what a range of jobs so far! And such interesting posts. Thanks for sharing. Was it anything in particular that made you snap Chris? I think I almost snap at least 4 times a week! Anyone work in stress management?! If it wasnt for the lovely distraction of gardening I think I would have thrown in the surveying towel a while ago. Soooo lucky to get such great enjoyment through gardening.

I'm just reading David Dickinsons autobiography. Before he became an antiques dealer, he sold fancy fabric to tailors - quite random. He's had a really interesting life. I love learning about what folk do. i wonder if we have any famous folk on here, or any widwifes? Hands up if you watched Call the Midwife last night and didn't shed a tear?! My grandad was a saw doctor. I think my dream job would be Chief Rolo Taster!

Stacey - wilko's is selling peony roots for £2, or three for £5. I treated myself yesterday and potted up today. Really healthy looking. Just in case you wanted to replace the one you've lost.

First year of growing in the ground. Three of the crowns have been in pots for about 5 years! Was worried they'd had it so chuffed to see the pinky shoots today. my neighbour suggested they like errrrrm, man piddle (!) is that right?

 We've plonked a few crowns along the boundary of our lane as told it takes up so much room in the garden. I dug it over today and spotted little red nibs! Is this about right for rhubarb at this time of year?
