      All I did was go out and shovel some of the snow off the cold frames. Caught a lot of free d out there as it is lovely and sunny.


      @wiseowl I'm envious of your statues... I only have one inside the house. Her name is Mimi

                I used to have her not far from the front door but found that little boys in the neighbourhood would knock and ask silly questions just so they could get a look at her.. attributes. She stands on her mermaid tail...

                Think I shall put on my boots and parka and go back out into the sun. Maybe move some of the empty pots around...

                                Nice on @martin-f :thumbsup:
                                Just a thought: :Think: maybe move those foxglove "plugs" forward; more to the centre line so they are not cheek-by-jowl with the white fencing? That way they have enough space to grow and spread their girth ;) :heehee:
