Really cold wind, put me off gardening.

Morning all.

I hope your SIL will be on the road to recovery soon, Lily P. They'll find out what's going on with an angiogram. I have 2 friends who recently had stents, they are so much better now.

Sun came out this morning, but don't think it will last. Bits of twig and tree branch and fallen over garden chairs all over the place.

 Here are some photos of my very wet garden in the rain yesterday.







Rambling (?) Rose Disease

The graft is normally at ground level, but those photos aren't at ground level as there appears to be a shrub at the bottom.

I still think your rose, especially now you've confirmed it, got too dry in the summer.

Glad no one was badly hurt or worse in that accident.

Gales and pouring rain today. Haven't done much. Sorted some photos on laptop, watched TV, been out and bought a top and posted a birthday card.

Jake has definitely been here today. Downpours and big gusts of wind.

Is there any chance of untying those two stems and attaching them separately? They shouldn't really rub against each other.

Have you fed it? I think it looks hungry. Does it get enough water being close to 2 walls like that? If it's too dry then it won't be able to absorb fertiliser anyway.

I have climbers that grow taller than that.

Imogen was on the day that we moved OH's things from the flat in Eastbourne to the cottage in Norfolk. Dartford Bridge was closed, total chaos, cars were sitting rocking in the wind on the M25

Fushia wanted but what kind?

I thought the clotted cream in Devon is so thick you spread it on first, like butter. Softer and lighter in Cornwall so you put it on top of the jam.

I've been to both and they both have gorgeous gardens, but the best fuschia I've seen, growing in hedgerows, was in Ireland.
