Sorry been missing, I think the gremlins have been messing with my computer lol, first my internet went then I couldn't log on to the RHS, all I got all the time was 'FF is unable to conect to this server', managed to log on a couple of times but hardly had time to read the posts I'd missed and I lost connection. Not sure if it helped or not but I ran a full scan on comp last night (takes a couple of hours) plus de fragged and so far all ok.
LOVED the pics Susiq, your garden is looking gorgeous and very tidy. Your leeks are way ahead of mine, think I left them crammed in pots too long and slowed them down. That black bird certainly had a beak full.
That primula is very pretty Richard. You are lucky having all the egg shells from Nicola, we don't use enough to make a difference. I have noticed this year that we are over run with snails, I am forever picking them off the plants and like Sue off the spuds in the buckets.
Our hose ban is still in place Sue, I think our water company is the only one not lifting it, so I will be up and down the garden all summer (if we get one) with watering cans.
How about some pics of your lotty Sis. I HATE football.
Sorry if I have missed anything, had so much to catch up on I forgot half of it by the time I came to write
