Although it might not feel like it right now, each day in February is a small step towards the spring. The days are getting longer.

In the garden the crocuses are popping out of the snow in their golden yellow.

If I can get in the greenhouse for the snow, I am going to plant some early broad beans (I'm using The Sutton this year).  I have some lettuce and cavelo nero in there at the moment looking in great health.

I've spent a cold winter day looking through seed catalogues and got my order in. I think the first thing to arrive will be my seed potatoes. I'd better start collecting egg boxes to store them in on the windowsill!

One thing I do need to do this year is sort out the lawn in my back garden. My two dogs have made a dogs dinner of it! Their claws have dug up the grass terribly. If you have any ideas on what I could do instead of lawn, please add a comment - all suggestions gratefully received!


  1. well you could make a nice gravel area or a wildlife meadow and have some flowers and grass comming up for the bees and butterflys if i can think of anythink else i let you know

    1. Linda, - thanks for some good ideas. I thought about gravel, but would also like some flowers and maybe a bit of grass. Let me know if you've seen any pictures of anything like this, so I could visualise it.

      Many thanks for your comment.

  2. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
    old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  3. I truly do rely on every one of the aspects you’ve introduced in your submit.
    These are quite begging and may certainly deliver the results.
    However, the actual discussions are certainly simple for starters.
    May well people be sure to extend these people a bit by subsequent occasion?
    Just posting.

  4. Hold out! Or even not necessarily! I merely submitted to Daniel’s e-mail deal with at a different place
    and also this period I didnt receive an error communication.
    This implies he or she likely obtained the information your dog desired coming from everyone (checking account range, etcetera) and now hindered my personal
    e-mail address through an miscalculation concept which in turn claims “Eric’s
    e-mail tackle will not be valid anymore”, although it’s probably operational again.
    Resistant is usually I sent some text to their target from your distinct location (amongst my personal alternative e-mail covers) and i also did not experience an error message… darn…tghthgthgg Charles please
    help me personally adhere to this application in your enterprise.
    I've previously provided my personal resume for a organization e-mail, you should I needed your current important reaction.
