Re: How many of you have had your Covid jab?

I had my first jab on February 8th, and am waiting to hear about the second one. Different people have waited different times for it, which seems to depend on the place of vaccination, and which doctor's surgery they attend. My oldest son and I had no bad effects post jab, but my two younger sons ha...

Re: How does your garden grow?

I sowed several sorts of seeds about ten days ago, and the lupin seedlings popped through during the week. I was amazed. Nothing else through yet.

Re: How does your garden grow?

What a beautiful few days. Today I have a Magnolia Susan beginning to flower, plus my white stellata. I have a pink stellata, but that is not out yet. Self seeded violets grow in cracks in the concrete and on the gravel, they are now flowering. Under the hedge I still have daffs and narcissi, and hy...

Re: How does your garden grow?

In sheltered areas, I have seen violets and forget me nots flowering. In my garden I already have aubretia in flower, and outdoor hyacinths showing colour. Lots of daffs and hyacinths in bloom, and to my surprise a third aconite flowering.

Re: How does your garden grow?

While Angel was pottering in the garden first thing, I tidied two Hydrangea pots up. These were cuttings which Ted took several years since, and I don't want to lose them, but they are so hungry for water in the summer. One of the pots was hiding a bramble briar, which I managed to dig up, and pot u...

Re: How does your garden grow?

I found some berberis growing in a clump of something else. We got rid of the one in front of the downstairs toilet window, but it has started shooting again, so that is a task waiting. My pink camellia is full of buds, and some have already opened. The bramble is back in the wash house for the night.

Re: How does your garden grow?

Because of a frost warning, the bramble has spent a second night in the wash house. I have cut back some roses in the churchyard, and also in my garden, just hoping I haven't killed them off! Edged two flower beds, and removed some dead grass around one of my roses. Everything is springing into life...

Re: Where's Tabatha?

In the past I have had both neutered male and female cats, but never heard those terms mentioned.

Re: Looking for thick cord trousers

Thanks Manda. Have just had a quick look. The trouble is that a lot of corduroys nowadays are thin, and I have really warm ones! The jogging bottoms I bought are really warm, not very attractive, I have to admit, but I almost don't want to be without them.

Re: How does your garden grow?

Brought the bramble in from the greenhouse this morning, now on the back yard. It has a tiny leaf near the bottom of the stem.

It's the old saying Mo, "dogs have masters, cats have servants" or something to that effect.

Re: How does your garden grow?

It isn't birds foot trefoil, I have that on the front lawn when it needs cutting, and love it. It has tiny leaves, and a star shaped yellow flower.

Re: Where's Tabatha?

She seems to be coming round Mo. My last cat was kept in for three weeks, but I walked into the kitchen one day, and found her climbing back in through the very high window! No idea how long this had been going on.
