I'm having a lunch time meeting at work in 15 minutes for which work have provided a huge feast of food of course I can eat precisely - non of it.

 

 

I'm Gluten intollerant Clar and have been for 12yrs now. It's a right royal pain finding food to eat when out but by now I'm just used to it! If its an all-dayer, I always take my own and OH spoils me with baked food such as cheesy scones and fluffy pizza bases.  I snack on things like boil eggs or left over roasted veg.

Gosh I remember the days when you had to combine several flours to bake cardboard food that broke your teeth to chew.

Morning...I'm not sure but I think it's someone's B day today?

Have a lovely one with many gardening gifts!

Lovely day, day off but plenty of work to be done so off I go...

Super pics everyone! Chicky those tulips are gorgeous. OL I love your raised bed and KEF's palm in a pot. I have one of those thats looking very unwell right now. all the leaves have brown spots which suggests disease (false smut) or a defiency of somekind but the only advice I can find is to remove infected leaves which would leave it naked

Yes Kef, I spotted one earlier on a Potentilla Miss Wilmott and it escaped my clutches although it must be starving because I currently have no lillies or Fritillaries in my garden

RHS quotes:"Although adult beetles have been found occasionally feeding on other plant species, only lilies and fritillaries are true hosts, on which eggs are laid and larvae develop."

Thus said lily beetle is an unloved lily beetle and serves it right

Weather improved this afternoon and allowed me a little walk around my garden with a cuppa and sore feet after my nine hr shift at work. Tomorrow I hope to get the last of my planting done and my new arch arrives in the morning although putting it up requires another day and another pair of hands.

Super show of gardens! Love them all and such healthy and vigorous looking plants.

Gosh, spring is so good to us.

Oh how lovely Edd!

Just caught up with the plant chat and Chicky's fencing and the naughty step drama and dates and cake and drooling...mmmm, cake.

Sunny enough for a walk about by late afternoon and discovered that my Iris are showing flower shoots for the first time this year.  Its only a simple yellow Iris but a overgrown clump rescued from my parents house since they had stopped flowering in the shade. Been planted two years now, so its good to see they have returned to form.

Still behind with my seed sowing and running out of room in the veg plot really fast! not because I've planted much out yet, but all spaces have been allocated.

Have yet to finish landscaping entirely, but like others have mentioned, its work in progress this time of year

Morning everyone.

Yes Chicky, I keep the same sort of diary in photos but also for progress results. It's marvellous to see and enjoy everything so much earlier but does that mean we do the chelsea chop earlier than chelsea?

Rainy here but my bum is quite comfy in its computer chair today.

Happy B day to Dove's mum.

Have a great day Wood!

Panda, what AT program did you watch and is it to do with gardening? I'm desperate and will take practically any TV entertainment that includes green and sprouting things.

Has anyone else noticed how foward things are this year? Some of my 2013 photos compared to this year are crazy, no less my climbing rose Paul Scarlet that has two blooms on it in April!!!

Thats a lovely idea Punkdoc and excuse my earlier reply...I misread your question as, does it require a physical presence...as in, do I, the husband, need to be present on said trip to Venice.

Tbh, the trip would be plenty for me but obviously holidays are extra lovely if you don't have to watch the purse strings. An actual present isn't so important to me as just being able to enjoy the sights and sounds without worrying about all the expense

Have a delightful time and congratulations. I'm at 26yrs happily married and planning a Venice trip via the Orient Express...although its quite expensive.
