Morning - have had a busy couple of days - too boring to tell you about
Just wanted to share a couple of exciting things only fellow gardeners will understand.
Driving near Milton Keynes yesterday saw my first proper patch of native bluebells - looked stunning. I don't know if it was a particularly sunny, sheltered spot but, so far, I've seen little sign of them in Suffolk!
Sowed 20 trays of seeds on Sunday afternoon and - joy of joys - the 1st cosmos has raised it's pretty little head this morning
Best wishes to Wonky & OH - get well soon. Best wishes to you too Dove - enjoy whatever time you can with Ma
BL - Thetford GC is quite a good one - plants are usually reasonable quality & they have a very good tools / machinery department although it sounds as though you won't be needing too much in the way of machinery! Don't like the one at Bressingham so much now - it was very good when it was run by the Bloom family but is now another Wyevale with more than it's fair share of scented candles, 'gifts', tacky garden ornaments etc. The excellent plant selection has been replaced with a much more mundane range (IMO). Better than many though - and a decent cafe last time I went!
Hosta - hope you enjoy the opera - one of my favourites. Love shopping for wellies
Yvie - imagine your nails are down to the quick now - hope all goes well.
Hope everyone else is keeping well.
Cold and windy out there today but I need to pull my woolly hat on & go shovel yet more topsoil. Really want to get this job finished today & before the rain forecast for this afternoon arrives.
