Grey skies this morning not sure what I am doing as yet

But will let you know when I do.


Well I have pinned the strawberry runners not sure what I will do if I get any more as I do not want to lose any this year unlike last year

We went to visit David parents and I brought a new shrub for ether the front or back garden well David paid along with some roses

Well I got some shrubs to tie up in the back garden one being the comfrey it leaning forwards again never mind will be taking a cutting of it soon so it can bounce back again
