    Peggy – I was amazed they survived all that snow. Mine’s a x12 zoom and I use photoshop to crop and zoom in on a small section of the photo

    Kirsten – thanks, itching to get out to the allotment. Must be bone dry for all this gorgeous sunshine we’ve been having

    Miss M – blooms are so cheering. I took these photos the week before my op. It’ll be another week before i can get to the plot so I’ll have lots of time to catch up on my backlog of posts :o)

    Stunning pics…just beautiful! My tulips are up but they don’t really compare to those.

    Hope you feel better soon!

    Such a wonderful array of floral goodness – I wish you could smell them through a computer.

    christine – I can only take credit for snapping them – the tulips are on my neighbour Pat’s plot.

    Nina – funny, I thought that when you posted your chocolate cream exclairs!

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife E found his playgroup Angel Gabriel costume and photo from 2 years ago and found it amusing how much his arms had grown!

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
