    Do you have a bit on your web-site about the gardening work you offer? I think a lot of people look on the web for gardeners now. Apologies if it is there and I have missed it! Lovely to see you back to good health again :)

    Pleased to hear you are well again and looking after the gardens of Cambridge. Too cold for my daily trip to the greenhouse today. Have been tidying and pot washing and putting compost in rootrainers ready for some veg and sweet peas. Always think that word (rootrainers) looks odd, like something to do with antipodean footwear, but the other version(roottrainers) just looks wrong too. Anyway, they work well and you get good root systems going. Found some seedlings that have survived the winter so they got potted on too, just need to find the label now! Will probably blame the mice-have trapped two already. Feels cold enough to snow again…

    You are in luck, fortunately for you I had 4 kids howling for cake today, and there is some left over! Wondering if the yellow shirt in yr most recent post is part of your usual gardening attire, crikey I’ll warn the neighbours!!

    I’m jealous – I want to nose around Belinda’s, too! Her house looks fantastic. Wonder if she’ll make you some of her amazing chocolate cake. Glad you are well and amongst the beautiful people again. x
