    Dental stuff for me too today,  gumologist or to be more accurate periodontist. Will be painful for body and wallet and I have a cold just to add to the misery. Lovely day out there though.

    @fidgetbones It's Anglesey Abbey in Cambridgeshire :smile:
    @Pat E , yes - Betula utilis var. jacquemontii. They wash them to keep them white!

    Lovely day today too, still frosty though.

    Hi all.
    Beautiful day here, hope spring is here.

    Omnishambles, probably not really a word, perfectly sums up what is going on in government at the moment.

    Whooops.
    Bought Moira a bunch of tulips, put them in the shed overnight. They are now decidedly floppy, some would say a bit like me.

    It's the thought that counts, @punkdoc...  fortunately...   ;)

    Morning all.  Just about to go and barrow gravel in the park with the volunteers.  It's a gorgeous morning...   B)

    Gorgeous morning here too but am on painting duties.  Need to get it out of the way now we've started.

    Pdoc - there's a knack to having unfloppy tulips but I like them when their stems bend.

    I always scored poorly on sewing but my all girls school thought Latin and cookery/sewing skills important.  I was only there for the first 2 years so have no idea what happened after that but in my next school I know only 3 girls went on to do Domestics at A level.   The rest of us had to choose between Arts or Sciences with Maths available to either.  Bit early for closing off options I think.

    @ punkdoc to straightened tulips cut off base of stem.  Use a safety pin to put a hole thorough the stem just below the flowers.  The theory is that the air trapped in the stem is released and water is pulled up the stem.  Seems to work for me
