See you were in Kingsbridge today. If you get the chance, a few miles north on the A38 at Ashburton, on the edge of Dartmoor, is the Dartmoor Lodge Hotel - they get their meat from a local farm, and their steaks are the best I've found.
I don't have shares in the hotel - my sister lives on thenortherly edge of the moors, and this hotel is a nice stop-over when I'm down there. Give Albert a rest tonight!
Small bit out side planting a few cineraria very windy out now
Been busy watching youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QfefY1ksLc
Lots of good allotment videos on there
Evening Brumbull and all
Sounds as you been busy
Been done some gardening in front garden today, all plants needed to go into the front done now, did get bit wet and dry in other times
cleared some fallen leaves - so get a bit done now feel cold
Brumbull, hope you took advantage of the Sunday carvery, in The Grill Room Restaurant?
That sounds like you found a good home with a garden that you can make your own imput/ stamp on good good
Been train station garden today just for a small bit, sort rubbish out and looked at garden so many plants in flower still
Well station gardening bit slow at min as me still bit rough, lots of bulbs to go in yet and some plants as well still in pots in back garden and lots of weeds there but leaving them just in case they turn out to be good plants self sown seeds
here is an honesty still in flower I grew that from seed last year
Enjoy the West Country - when you buy the property you will no longer be classed as a Grockle or Emmet!
.........tourists or holiday-makers - emmets in Cornwall, grockles in Devon and Dorset.
More often used in Cornwall - once across the Tamar it's another country don't you know!
Don't I know it! I miss my lovely Cornwall.
Oh sure, probably 4 or 5 times a year. Sister lives on the northern edge of Dartmoor, so we go down to her, and then onwards for a few days in Kernow. Have stayed in my birthplace at Pentillie, which is now probably the most luxurious B & B in the UK - check the website!
The bedrooms at the rear look straight across to Dartmoor, with the Tamar in the foreground - perfection!
The Tamar valley is Cornwall's best kept secret!
...........luckily, so well hidden that most English tourists cross the Tamar bridges and go racing on towards Newquay and St. Ives !
done a small bit of gardening clearing of bits and feeding birds they are all hungury at min
Brumbull - did you get back to your garden yet
I want to get the grass cut but rain won't stop, maybe another day
managed to go get some plants for cheap violas and others, also send seeds for seed swap
Evening Brumbull and GG.
Sounds like you've both been busy today. I piddled around a bit this morning and finally got off my chuff late afternoon to dig out the biggest dahlia. It was in a bed where I want to plant a couple of roses, but will do that tomorrow. The dahlia tuber is almost a foot across, will have to split it in Spring or take cuttings.
Sorry your offer wasn't accepted Brumbull, will you up it a bit?
that dahlia has made big roots,
here is a pic of plants I got
Decisions, decisions, it's a hard life!
Those plants look lovely GG, what a bargain. Nothing as cheap as that here, unless they're already dead or dying!
only a few mouldy flower picked off now sure they are all not that bad plants, thought I would go for one of each colour planter brighten up the front door area and one of those purple cabbages see how that looks in the garden as not tried that before
That is because they do wholesale mainly of cut flowers and lots of fireworks there, but are open to the public so I guess they buy lots and want to sell them off quick
If you do like it that much Brumbull put in another offer.
gardengirl, I have PM'd you.
