daffodil

Spring at last!

After all my complaints about the bad weather we had down south over Easter, yesterday was nice and today is glorious. I cleaned the line and hung washing outside for the first time this year. I battled with BT to try to get a better deal out of them and succeeded. I started deadheading the daffodils. Then I did a lot of weeding. That was tiring so I sat in the sun (really warm!) and made these nifty plant supports out of hazel hedge prunings the gardener left behind. All that time in the Guides wasn’t wasted.

Yesterday I saw lambs in the fields; new life everywhere.

Today has been glorious, I was almost too warm!

Well done you on getting a better deal out of BT. I am thinking of getting rid of Sky (TV, broadband and telephone) and going for freeview and a different broadband provider. Thing is, Sky have been brilliant in all these years but they are expensive.

My daffs are still going strong and I'm really surprised as they have been open for ages.

Well done. You deserve a practical gardener badge ;)
Wasn't it lovely? looks like being the same today, although it's misty and frosty ATM.

I just use Freeview. The only thing I'd like from Sky is the cricket and I'm not prepared to pay for it.

Looking at the garden now, it's a mass of daffs and primroses. I like to keep on top of the deadheading because I hate the sight of daffodils once they've gone over.

Ha ha, thanks! I can't remember if there was a gardening badge. Perhaps yesterday's efforts come under Woodcraft; I did have that!
