Just come inside for a hot cross bun and a cup of tea.  It's lovely and warm out there this morning. 

Have been weeding the borders and potted on my cosmos Daydream.  All seedlings potted on now and not a speck of room left in the greenhouse.

My Canna Durban has started to sprout Yipee, just Shanandoah left now.  Fingers crossed.

Have sent a couple of emails out to suppliers re none showing Agasache Blue Boa, Helianthus Lemon Queen and Geum Lady Strathenden.  Will keep you posted re how I get on.  It could be that I am just impatient but everything else is romping away.

Did it get any morning sun following a frost?

Morning all,

Weather is glorious again today.

Hope knees and thumbs get better soon.

Hope you have a safe journey home Busy.

Wintersong, shouldn't worry too much about the sambucus, mine came with the house and I prune it every year to make sure it stays thinned out and not too tall.  It does produce dappled shade but it's quite light. 

Just planning to enjoy the garden today and maybe pot on a few seedlings if they need it.

I am going up to yorkshire for a couple of days with a friend to stay at her daughters.  We have tickets for the Harrogate show tomorrow and then plan to visit Harlow Car on Friday (which will include a trip to Betty's Tearoom yipee!). 

Off to make me a cuppa, I like to wander round the garden with a cuppa before I really start the day.

You bet they will.  I'm still trying to get rid of mine after a couple of years.  I'm still applying glysophate to new growth.  If it likes the conditions it's a nightmare to get rid of.

Evening all,

I've booked myself a week with Poldark down in Cornwall in May.  That's why he is taking a break from your TV screens, he'll be too busy

DD I've got one Dahlia out of 4 showing in the greenhouse at the moment.

RB I've not read all the way back, what exactly have you done twice today???

Stop moaning you lot, my green bin fell in the wagon at the end of last season, apparently.  They have been promising since to deliver a new one, no sign yet.  You can imagine how much green waste is building up.  Hubby has been to the tip three times but there is still loads.  When I have a bin it's collected every 2 weeks with weekly collections of ordinary waste.  Sunny here in Worcester but for some reason I'm still cold.
