..... but the weather is still unsettled - grey and damp today after light rain most of the day yesterday. The forecast suggests some improvement over the next few days, which would certainly be welcome, particularly since I have friends coming to stay.
The severe winter completely killed the large banana plant I had, despite its being in the conservatory. I was very pleased to see that, during my brief visit to UK, new growth has appeared from the pot, so at least the root survived the rigours of the long cold spell we had in January.
There's much that needs doing in the garden, but it's not going to be very easy with this wet weather!
