It's looking very good for a garden in winter. aym I'm pretty sure it already has acers and bamboo, I saw them on the programme and I know the tree in the patch of earth is an acer, wearing it's naked winter coat! And there is a bamboo behind the red bench. The red looks great.

Thanks for reminding me. I thought I'd transferred all the birthdays onto the 2017 calendar, now I see I've only done January.


I had an eye test in June, no hunky men


It's only -4° outside at the moment.

Where will you keep your bike? Could there be some overhanging roof at the back to put it under?


Maybe you have to be logged in to Twitter to get it. I don't want to do Twitter. Photos here would be great.

I've now had 3 catalogues  and have ordered some plug plants, annuals.


https://www.promessedefleurs.com/vivaces.html  Haven't had annuals from them before, but they do Isotoma, Ammi Visnaga, Osteospermum Terracotta that I couldn't find anywhere else. Coming end of March. Hope they are OK.


2pm here and still only -4°. The dining room is only +4°, heating is only on for dinner parties, few and far between in winter, last used for Christmas with the fire lit too.


Off to look at next catalogue.

Plant orders for 2017

I think you can order them but they aren't sent until spring. At least that's what happens here in France. We are back from Norfolk and there was a seed catalogue and a plug plant catalogue waiting.

Hazel I got your PM, replied. Couldn't earlier as our flight was called and the train at Stansted had broken down so we had to walk miles to our gate. Laptop has been on a go slow since we got home, probably updating lots of stuff as it hasn't been used for 12 days.


Housesitter said everything was fine, but there were feathers on the door mat, which means naughty Alexa cat has been up to no good.

We are home now, well, a couple of hours ago. Just had a sad phone call to say the lovely Maire of our village has died, funeral on Thursday. He's been Maire since before we bought this house in 1990.

We are waiting at the airport.


Hazel, do you accept PMs? you asked Lantana to PM you, but I tried recently and the site said this member doesn't accept PMs.
