@KEF, hey, enjoy your hard earned time off!

I am the weekend baker, so its stupid-o'clock starts and on my feet all day, but I love my job.

OH just got a back-dated promotion which more than covers my wages and offered to let me take early retirement (until I find a new job) but I just don't feel right not earning my keep. Plus I love to spend after penny pinching for +20yrs when children/house/pets/and everything else came first, least I don't feel guilty when it all goes on my garden

haha Dove, have a lovely time. I'll also be AFK for the weekend but that's because some salt mines never close and I work the weekend shifts.

Hope all you stay safe and your gardens remain in tact

Early Spring

I've just come back from the garden and noticed my Rosemary bushes full of buds.

It always flowers early for us but can't remember this early

Posted: 09/01/2015 at 11:21 was a long while ago now though. Had really forgotten all about it until it was mentioned

OOOh errr, yes. I had a awkward pm one time from a member being inappropriate. I really don't like that sort of thing and quickly disappeared for a while.

Nice to see you BL  you look gorgeous and if that is house and garden, I'm green too

Aww that middle photo is lovely. Great to put faces to those you respect and the threads are great also...I never saw the end results of your organised trips so I will be busy ferreting around those for a lovely nose.

I'm a little bit scared by this pic BK...(its the false baby) I'm glad it was Halloween.

You look lovely though, its the baby lol.

I used to have my pic as my avatar for a long while but I think I made an improvement now  so I'm sure most don't need reminding, but I would love to see pics of all those who share in the passion for our beloved gardens

LP, so sorry to hear about your tree. I've suffered losses in my own garden over the years, mostly fences and some dead or damaged shrubs, so I know how it feels when the weather gets the better of our little havens. As others have least no-one was hurt.

BL, glad your heating is back also. I hate being cold and go to bed every night feeling privileged to have a roof over my head and a warm bed.
