Gorgeous day today. Gymming it but I'd rather be in hosta's shoes today 

Oh well, I do have a bearded IT nerd with a mohawk, anyone jealous?

Matty she' so gorgeous and I'm sure you will make her very welcome 

Bad luck Panda 

Good luck DD 

Poor fairy, 9 degrees is harsh, obviously they don't make us southerns of the same stuff, I'd be flipping miserable 

Did manage some gardening today, spot weeding some bindweed and watering mainly 

Been practising my manoeuvres in the car, booking lessons tomorrow, at a rate of 4 or 5 a week.

Morning all 

Sunny, very warm yesterday, today looks the same. 

Lots on at the moment, busy busy, not much time for garden but I'm happy now to let it grow 

My roses this year are phenomenal. Wall to wall colour, absolutely smothered  that's down to feeding mulching and tying in correctly, all of which I learnt from this forum, so thanks everyone 

Have a great day  xx

The lily is stunning as is the compost!  I  have made a bin of the black stuff too, first time it's turned out really well thanks to my shredder 

What a difference a year makes

Morning all 

Have a great day chicky, glad the exam stress is over  

We have wooden flooring throughout Clari exactly because of muddy paws, slobbering months and projectile dog sh*t 

Get well to BL 's back, and lovely carrots. 

Good luck building walls LesleyK 

I haven't read back too much, it's been quiet here for a while or I've been very busy

Gym today, then some reading, writing and painting in no particular order 

Have a good day y'll

Morning all

Two lovely surprises in my garden this morning, the beautiful black stuff sitting in my compost  bin and a frog in my cold frame!  Sooooo  happy and excited. Also saw something run out from under my plant yesterday when watering, can't say what it was but it was small furry and grey 

I love having the wild life here, it's a neat garden but I'm extremely pleased things come and do their business here 

Have a good day everyone
