Welcome to spring 2014. After the UK got flooded and hit by Hurricanes, we now have snow and freezing winds, whatever next.
You will find many Articles by myself and hopefully enjoy the diversity of this forum.
Regards from England.
Neil.

Beautiful spring pictures Neil, thank you. Thumbs up Still winter here, no Snow drops and no Crocuses yet, but I look forward to spring. I've been on two short courses, one in the cultivation of fruit trees and one on rose cultivation in difficult areas. Last summer was terribly wet and cold here. I just hope the coming summer will be warmer and full og sunshine.

Where do you have the courses? Does an organization give them or a school?

I can assure you that there is no spring here. Snow coming on Monday, although it looks like we are to the north of the worst of it.

Lesser Celandine or Ranunculus ficaria. A most pernicious weed, of course from the buttercup family. A total pest in my mothers neighbours garden. Unfortunately this pest although I hasten to add quite pretty does spread into the wild (now) Cyclamen.

I'm here. I didn't get lost. Just have been busier then a one-armed paper hanger. All our doctors appointments that were scheduled all came last week, with a few extra ones in for me. One of the doctors kept me waiting for four hours, never again there! Then he spent less than 10 minutes with me!!!!

Sorry but all of you are not having Spring as yet but it will be coming. Its a perfectly clear day today, but only about 60°. No snow predicted!!!!!

Thanks for worrying about me but all is fine here.

Love and hugs

I have to learn to use my digital camera. Fine when the girls are home to help, but a long slog for my brain. Understanding helps. when I was told the halfway 'push' was to focus, I didn't forget it.

Milder air today. The weather report said that the storm passing south of us is on the way to England. Hope not too much flooding. How is Phoenix?
