Afternoon - nice sunny day here but fffflippin' ffffreezin'. Decided to have a day off proper gardening so just hand weeded a tiny bed (took all of 5 minutes) and then spent a very happy hour in the potting shed pricking out nicotiana, potting on ammi and tomatoes and doing some watering.
OH has been called in to work so on my own now for a couple of days. I think fish fingers might have to suffice for Sunday dinner - it's been a couple of weeks since I've not really had to think about pleasing anyone but myself so I'll make the most of it - not in the mood for cooking.
You've certainly had 'one of those days' Runny. I have been known to have a stamping foot tantrum (like a 2 year old) after a couple of episodes like that.
Beautiful roses B3 - aren't they a gorgeous colour? Very early too. We had loads of stuff budding up really early / growing like crazy because it was so warm in March - but it has been really cold since Easter and everything has ground to a halt. My roses have been in bud for weeks - but the buds haven't swelled at all the last couple of weeks.
Nice that your friends still pop round regularly Joyce - as you say it is very easy for friends to drop by the wayside when the going gets tough. Hope you get to relax soon though
Speaking of relaxing - the only time I can really relax in the garden is when we either have visitors or if it's a really hot day and I can pull the recliner into the shade and lie back with a good book. Otherwise i'm up and down pulling at this and propping up that - you know - you're all the same
Hello SGL - lovely to see you.
