Greenhouse now cleaned up inside (will clean outside in Spring... not much point doing it as bad weather starts?). All alpines now tucked up indoors... a collection of succulents and another of saxifrages etc. Next job to pot up tiny spring bulbs, collected from local alpine group, Malvern, and last year's repeaters. Hope to do that tomorrow although I have to be in the local community shop in the afternoon for my training session.I am going to be a voluntary reservist ( sounds like the army ) so I can cover vacancies among the paid staff. We have 14 part-timers and loads of volunteers, as well as a committee of 8 local worthies.... a real village community effort and lots of laughs and hugs as well.
This evening is the grand reopening of the village pub... new landlord who we all hope will be more successful than before. He runs another pub locally which has been very good so we have high hopes. Tonight is the local gentleman's dining society, ladies invited too, so should be fun.
So, I am going outside and may be a little while. If you don't hear from me send a search party.
