Good Friday Scout


Happy Easter everyone.  We have scaled down the gardening plans for this weekend due to the cold.  Woe.  Instead I think we shall be tidying the flat, visiting the pub and venturing out for a day of fun on Steve’s birthday on Monday.  Here is some good stuff to keep you entertained this weekend.

RHS Great London Plant Fair


I popped over to the RHS Horticultural Halls last night after work to check out the RHS Great London Plant Fair. Got to say, with all of this dreadful weather it was such a pleasure to see all the spring bulbs on display and the scent really hit you as you walked into the halls.  I wish I could have made a night of it as they had a brilliant band playing, the Gin Garden were there and there was so much to look at.  But, I had another appointment so off I went just as things were getting going.  I took a quick vine video but can’t for the life of me get it to embed, so please do click here to see it.
