Proposal on the local gardening show!

Posted: 18/01/2016 at 19:39

Heee heee! I bet it'll be another five years before we set a date! 

I can't get used to having a ring on that finger!

Still smiling!

Can't believe I'm officially a fiancée! Wooo hoooo!

BBC radio Nottingham Darly. The presenter, John Holmes read it out just after the news at 9.30am. I appear  (after a Michael Jackson song) a jibbering wreck!!

What lovely messages. Thanks so much. 

Im feeling wobbly from lots of champagne from doing the rounds with all the relatives! It's been lovely to hear about how others were proposed to.

Just home and time to put the kettle on and re-live an amazing day for me. 

17th January 2016 - just brilliant!

Snow frolics

No snow here in the East Midlands. Where about a are you lily?

What new seeds will you be trying this year?

Growing pelargoniums from seed for the first time. They're up already. Perhaps a bit early but I want to get them nice and big as the plugs I purchased last year were really poor.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Back breaking work clearing ivy from neighbouring garden in the flat I rent out. The last tenants pretty much wrecked the place and didn't touch the garden for two years so it's very overgrown. But amongst all the weeds and debris, the cyclamen that I planted in 2004 were flowering their hearts out. 

I wonder if there are any horticultural students who I could rent it out too. Clean ones though - the last tenants were clearly averse to any kind of house work so much that the bathroom needs replacing.

Planted some seeds for the propogator. Noticed the geraniums (pelargonium) seeds I planted only last week have started to germinate. Very exited as first time I've grown them from seed.

pruned back my raspberry bushes hard.

went to the paddock and got two wheel barrows of manure for the roses, rhubarb and strawberries. 

Wrote up in garden journal and have decided to treat myself to a new rhubarb crown and also have a go at growing kale, cauliflower and parsnips this year.

im going to tinker about in the greenhouse today.

Love seeing all of the bulbs coming through. Sun is shining here but it's nippy.
