Back from our visit to Bosvigo. Only the small woodland garden was open so I was a bit disappointed as we expected to spend the afternoon there. Didn't see Carol Klein, she must have been in the warmth inside having a cup of tea. The gardens look stunning in your photo Liz. We'll have to go back in the summer.
Beans and plums ....chicken and crumble or is that beans n chicken and plums n crumble
Bunny-I think you need to get out more
Nice woodland, were there any butchers i wonder ...
Hi all ,Miss Becks I meant to say from under her feet otherwise she has me doing jobs around the house.
Bunny ,the weather got worse in the late afternoon with sleet and snow but its not sticking .
I'm back in . Half dead , frozen to the marrow but its done. Water feature in place but not plumbed in yet but I'm pleased with the results. Old trellis didn't take much dismantling as some of the wood had rotted and new one looks great. Just as OH started to put them in place it started to snow . Typical. Clematis survived the untangling and I took the opportunity to give them a quick trim as they are both group 2 - Nelly and Durandi. Want to start planting now but will have to wait.
What have I missed. ? Saw the pics from Bosvigo - love woodland.
Think I'll change my name to Waynetta and get jim-jams on.
Glyn , I am but I have never felt so cold in my life I was determined to get it done today. It's going to be my bumble bee border so am really looking forward to getting it planted.
Think I need cake but will wait until after tea.
I HATE honeysuckle root. not that I'm having that for tea.!
Well done Jean. Water feature as well in this weather brrr. It is group 2 clem I am never sure of so trying ot work it out this year, Would help if I could remember which i have put where
We're having a roast chiclen dinner, don't have one very often any more - not enough people to feed
Son met neighbour and has been given a bottle of home made perry apparently son provided the pears from his pub - well not his pub but where he works - but you know what i mean
Will let you know what it is like. Bonfire night same person provided lavender beer - apparently (well he says) its what the invading Romans would drink, that was very nice despite its name - not too strong and no hops
Lovely photos of Bosvigo Lovely cake After all the talk of cake yesterday I made Doves recipe for a boiled fruit cake - yummy Well done Jean
I haven't ventured into the garden today - being dusting and polishing instead
Just washed up and going to watch Dance for comic Relief after the rugby finishes

Pam could you pop over to my house, I have lots of dust! A slice of fruit cake would be good too!
You would be very welcome to a slice of fruit cake but I will pass on the dusting
We are having a late tea due to the fact I got carried away outside and forgot to put the baked potatoes in lamb steaks, cheesy mushrooms and green beans followed by a small medicinal brandy to warm me up
Bjay - I could just eat a roast. With group 2 , I usually just give them a little trim to keep the shape in Feb - don't prune too much though or you may lose the flowers. Had to trim Nelly a little more than I wanted to as a certain person stood on the top of it but I'll let him off as he has worked hard today.
I've never made a boiled fruit cake Pam, but have got a recipe somewhere for one that is made with cold tea.
Off to pop the mushrooms in
We are having a simple dinner. Omlette and chips. Haven't got much in the way of fillings, so it will be bacon, cheese and onion. Maybe some pancakes for after!
Sounds lovely. I like omelettes but am in the minority
Couldn't be bothered to make a crumble so mixed up egg and milk and poured it on plums - another experiment
It's brandy o'clock here. Nice and warm now .
Been watching Lets Dance--Antony Cotton was brilliant
More sniffy bits from Africa
