Hi everyone,

Haven’t been on here for a long time, been quite poorly with the Meniere’s and haven’t felt like doing anything (at times i couldn’t do anything!) anyway feeling a bit better don’t know if the weather has helped or what but had a good week last week.

I have just ordered some spring flowers for my hanging baskets, only doing 2 this year can’t cope with much now garden wise. :o( but i am determined to have a couple of baskets, so have ordered some red Verbena trailing, some blue Convolvulvus trailing and some white Bacopa trailing going for the patriotic look seeing as its Diamond Jubilee year!! Oh also some Fuschias cant have a basket without them one of my favourite flowers so got 5 ‘Pink Galore’ ones coming. I also ordered some seeds, Nasturtium Tom Thumb Alaska mixed, some wildflower seeds and some cornflower ones. I have a bit of rough garden that i want slabbing eventually but until then i thought i’d sow some seed on it for the birds and butterflies.

I took these photos the other day of the crocus and snowdrops made me smile at last spring is on the way
Hope you are all well and looking forward to the spring and summer :o)

Hi Sewingkilla, I wondered where you were. I am sorry to hear you have not been well. It is so nice to hear from you and seeing your lovely pictures...:)))

Lovely photo`s Sk, pleased you are perking up again, your baskets will look lovely with those colours, I`m doing the same colours, I like the idea of joining in the celebrations even if only a small way in my own garden.
In view of our lack of rain, I`m not doing many pots and baskets this year, figured my plants will stand a better chance in the garden...

So good to have you back with us. Sorry you have been ill though. Meniere’s is a nasty complaint and doing anything is a trial so I believe. It's good that you are feeling a bit stronger now. Lovely photo's though of your crocus and snowdrops.
