Evening all, Lots of rain both here and in Worcester, luckily didn't get wet on the school runs though.

Hope all your problems are sorted soon Wonky and you settle into your new home.

Hosta with a bit of luck that scan will identify the problem so you can get it sorted.  I'm still at the xray stage, have to make an appointment to get the results but haven't had chance this week. Planting bulbs with a dodgy knee is no fun.

Liri the home my mum is in didn't get top marks but they are great in the areas that matter most.  The staff are very caring, the home is very clean and the food is home made.  If they aren't very good at filling in all the forms I don't worry too much.  We can only do the best we can.

Sorry about the bump Fidget, hope it gets sorted.

Off for a cuppa and a look round.

That's a pretty bird Hosta whatever it is.

Hi everyone, a lovely day here.  I've been out planting bulbs this morning. Secondborn popped in for a coffee and we sat outside enjoying the sunshine. 

Clari, I'm glad you are thinking of moving on, they have been taking the mickey for a long time now. 

Hosta I've walked that hill at Port Isaac many a time, it's a killer (usually after lunch at the Mote Restaurant).  Couldn't do it at the moment though.

Sorry you are still having problems with the neighbours Pdoc, it's a really miserable situation to be in.

Wonky, hope you manage to find 5 mins to put your feet up this weekend, all work and no play .......

Maintenance only anyone?

My garden will never be finished. Every year I see new seeds, bulbs, plants that I must have and so some that aren't performing well or I have becom bored of just have to make way.  Also the lawn is becoming gradually smaller

Anyone done any gardening today?

Beautiful day here, have planted out Curlew and Cragford Daffs and underplanted with blue Forget me not.  Hopefully should be a good show in the spring.

Tidying and deadheading mainly but also put in some border supports for cosmos and dahlias.  Then had to water as everything is so dry.

Hi Jo,  I'm fine, just a bit weary.  The last few weeks have been a bit stressful with mum and hubby being ill and looking after grandchildren.  Hopefully the worst is over now and we can get back to normal.

Sorry you are feeling down P'doc, unfortunately neighbours can be a real pain.

Morning all, It's a bit dull here today but it does look like it will burn off later.  I have been neglecting the garden lately due to other pressures but hopefully I will be able to get back out their today. 

I have to put up the insulation in the greenhouse as I think the weather is due to change soon and I will be potting up seedlings soon to overwinter in there.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.
