Roll on spring!


Just thought i would say hello & wish you all a happy new year…
I haven`t been on goy much lately as not felt to well but did have a nice christmas & had too much chocolate!
Now that i feel better i am so looking forward to the spring, had a little tidy up in my front garden & have looked at the damage the cold weather has done…
I have lost some plants but the most annoying thing that happened was that something caused a pane of glass to break in my greenhouse & i`ve lost most of my cuttings as a result but these things are sent to try us so nevermind!
Anyway roll on spring & once again a happy new year to you all from my cats & me xxx

happy new year to you too.
I also had soe panes break I suspect due to the weight of snow. Even the propagators froze so I have lost lots of cuttings too.

Happy New Year from me Elsiemay, hope you are feeling better. I had 1 pane crack in my unheated "old" greenhouse, it was definitely the weight of the snow.
