We came down to Forest Lodge on Friday morning, and it has been all go since then...we have spent very little time down here this year so far which means that the weeds are taking over.... One thing I have noticed is the amount of moss that is everywhere, it is really bad in the flower beds as well as on the lawns....Graham emptied the compost heap so we have lovely compost to put on the beds whenever we get all the weeds cleared...It is nice to see that most plants are coming on.....I will try and put up some pics.... the internet is a bit slow down here so may have to wait till we go back to Dublin tomorrow.The weather has been good so far so I hoping that tomorrow will be just as good...Hope you all has a lovely Paddys day :)

I started pruning this plant about 12 years ago and  last week I gave it its first clipping for this year ..I am really happy with how it is shaping up .. my only reget is that it is not growing in a pot because when we move to Roscommon in a few years I will have to leave it behind
