    Thought you might be hunkering down in this weather change.  I haven't done anything all week as its bitterly cold and raining half the time, just at the point when the cherry and plum are in flower.🙄

    In London. Keen but lazy.

    [...]The worst thing you can do is be on any kind of tablet,PC,phone, the blue light will keep you awake.
    On my desktop computer running Windows 10 there is a very cool setting which automatically switches the screen dominant hue from blue to yellow according to sunset and sunrise times. I was skeptical at first but find it works quite well! Here's a screenshot of that setting:

    I’d say go for it @ImpatientGardener ...  very few Kilmarnock willows earn their keep, in
    my humble opinion.  

    Any cuttings would just give you some sort of low growing mound of pussy willow as Kilmarnock willow are topgrafted onto something like the common gat willow, not a lollipop shaped tree. 

    Ive found this blog which may be of interest https://rachel-the-gardener.blogspot.com/2014/02/salix-caprea-kilmarnock-how-not-to.html?m=1


    What sort of climber are you thinking of?  What about growing a pyramid of annual Morning Glories up an obelisk this summer while you’re doing some research and making up your mind.  :)

    Getting to sleep is not a problem at the mo. Its staying awake!  Started hayfever tabs on Monday and sleepies hit by afternoon , have been fighting them ever since. Usually takes four days for effects to ware off, so should be coming around soon. Then might have energy and weather to garden. 🙄😄

    The smallest gap in the blinds and curtains set up is enough to wake me as soon as the sun rises no matter what time of the year

    Eventually. I'm now trying to see how many cups of coffee I can fit in before my first meeting.
