That is lovely Dove. Tulips are one of my favourite flowers

And thanks for the doggie chew advice from Dove and Clari, will investigate your ideas

Still wondering about the garden, if I got out there I will move a clematis because I have three already at the arch with a fourth five too many? I could make use of this Alpina elsewhere, is it okay to move it as it was cut back last year after the arch fell down so its short and stout, just with fat buds?

Back from gym and shopping, waiting for on-line shopping to arrive.

Bought another window propagator for annuals and a chew toy for Flynn but I'm a little bit miffed as I only buy the expensive toys that are labelled virtually indestructible and feel really robust, this one cost a tenner and he's already got an edge on it. Does my baby have like the meanest teeth in the dog world?

I don't know what else to supply him with as cheap toys don't even get past an introduction and I read that bones are bad for doggies.

Not sure I'll be in the garden today, the sun is desperately trying to burn off the cloud but I should really finish the DIY in the hallway.

Dressage, now you're talking I love watching dressage at the Olympics.

Morning all and enjoy your weekends and mother's day. Got to work sunday myself but middle son has visit planned for afternoon which is always lovely, he's an animator so his sense of humour is off the wall

...and sons love their mums the best, right?
