Received today.  Superb advice too.  hosta Liberty has strong thick shoots and raring to go.  the range of hostas available is amazing.  already potted up. of the good guys

Thoughts with you today Liri 

Weather warnings issued

Was windy but didn't hear too much.  Calm, warm, sunny and all the birds singing everywhere here.  And a Verdun could be heard whistling a delightful tune! 

a good turn needs to be considered......

No, dont like adders at all Pam.  You're right though, they are out now . Can't come into my garden as its walled but I need to be careful now on the towans with my dog.

Rushed back hoping for my plant delivery....maybe deliveries 

the weather is amazing.  Wind has dropped and sun is deliciously warm.  Haven't got a ride on mower like Hostafan....though he says I can borrow it ......but the grass should be dry enough to cut in a couple of hours.

For me, in spring hadspen cream has wonderful small leaves and myriads of forget me not blue flowers.  I much prefer the smaller leaves....they are better variegated.  I usually cut them back in mid summer and the resulting growth is again those smaller variegated leaves

dont find mine invasive at all but it is easily divided.

The vanity in me liked the frequency of "Verdun" Edd 

enjoy your posts too..... need to re read most of them to appreciate them, esp first thing in the morning 

well, off to the beach now with my dog.....avoiding stinging nettles of course !!!

Sometimes when you gamble you lose....

Posted: 31/03/2015 at 08:43 this a one off event do you think?  At least not a regular flooding issue?  

You could, as Edd said, start again but if that area usually does dry out I would leave well alone.  Keep off it, of course.

Well said Edd

my mum was a Jehovah's witness.  Not my cup of tea really but they do know how to present a funeral service

a Witness least all I have been hopeful, happy, sincere and embracing.  Comforting too.  No chanting, cliches, hypocrisy, or over religious hype.  They talk of friends, of family (they are brothers and sisters) and many friends and neighbours commented to me of their pleasant surprise at the relaxed and friendly service.

Lyn will have our united virtual support today and I'm sure tomorrow or in a day or two she will feel more comforted by today's events.
