That made me laugh Hazel.  

PF.   You must be younger than me.   My skirt length was over the knee. (Possibly down to the ankles if my Dad had his way).   I had a pinafore dress with a belt round the middle so I couldn't have hoiked it up even if I wanted to.   Didn't cross my mind.     Wearing all that gear was good training for lugging all those bags of compost around.  It was  the equivalent of weight training today.

Dark blue and droopy heads are the great British bluebells. 

A paler blue , and very upright are the Spanish ones.

Yes Hazel like that, only i thought they were  a little longer.    Perhaps the old grey cells are failing me.   

PF.  I do remember stuffing my shoes with newspaper, and polishing them but leaving it to soak in next to the fire.       Oh the good old days !!  

B3.  Didn't know what impure thoughts were then.    Not aloud at a Catholic school

In those days I know there was no offence meant when asking for a certain shade of brown.  I'm sure it never entered our parents heads that it might have been offensive to some people.  

Just to add, I almost forgot the huge and very heavy Gaberdine  Mac and heavy leather satchel I had to lug to school everyday.    No wonder I was a small child.

PF.  Yes, but a bit more stylish.    I had one in Lincoln green. 

Potato blight

Don't think it's blight, it's a bit to early.   They have probably suffered a frost.  If it's only a little your potatoes should be ok,  make sure you keep them well covered until threat of frost has gone.  Another few weeks at least maybe more.   I have had the same problem..
