    Thanks Hosta. Yes I’m in a quandary now about harvesting the rest of the lavender. I told my neighbour and her comment b....gger the lavender. Leave it. I might just have to do that.

    Are they frightened off by noise? Could you go and band some pots and lids together to frighten it off?
    How are the temperatures now? We've got very unseasonably "warm" 13C . Lovely to work in the garden after the winter , which has, hopefully , gone now.

    I’m not sure about the noise idea. We’d have to get close and they are very quick. Faster than I could run.
    Our temps are close to 30c but the nights are a bit cooler. I’m glad your temp has risen a bit.

    I bought flowers, I received chocolates, we had a fabulous dinner with some wine.
    Whats not to like?

    The flowers and the chocolates will both have cost twice what they would have done the week before or the week after, as will the meal if it was in a restaurant and when you're married, that's 'house' money being spent. I'm not averse to OH buying me flowers/chocolate, but I'd rather he did it when he felt so inclined rather than when the supermarkets have bludgeoned him into submission because February is otherwise lacking in 'retail opportunities'.

    Well done Chicklets, one for surviving and one for thriving.

    I'd steer well clear if it was me, Pat. Can't you sprinkler the lavender then wait a day or two for it to dry off again? If the snake comes back, let him enjoy the lavender for this year.

    Mild and a bit damp here today. Bread making weather, I think

    Or am I falling?

    Neighbours children have woken me again!!! So I'm just waiting for the cloud to burn off so I can escape them in the garden!! Second coffee time!

    Morning 😀. Its the weekend - yay 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

    Littlest chicklet was much brighter by yesterday evening, so looking forward to having her home for the weekend 😀.  No real plans other than to start filling my windowsills with seed trays 😉🌱

    Morning all . 
    I've taken hubby to work, had my hair cut and been to Waitrose. I think I'll  have some breakfast now.

    Glad Chicklet is feeling better 😊 
    You look very smart @Hostafan1 👨 
    Ive been out there and pruned the grapevine and spoken severely to a rampant honeysuckle about allocated space and cut back a bush rose that overhangs the terrace so it’s not too much in the way when we walk past.
