Spring is near

The nights are still cold but the waether is starting to warm up, enough so that one is tempted to go outside and mess about in the garden. While summers get way too hot now is the ideal time to string new lights, put up bunting and repot a few plants that have got too big for their ... pots!

This year I have decided that I want to have a go at growing orchids. The flowers are so spectacular and they are in flower now. I'm starting out small just in case I'm not an orchid's best friend. My daughter gave me one potted up in a fancy container, and a friend donated a couple, plus some zygos and other plants to my new project. 

Wish me luck in my new endeavour ... or better still, wish the plants luck. I shall keep you posted.
