Just watched the Design Challenge. Enjoyed it. Agree about Kelly, but found her less irritating than before. What is the matter with peach? I think it's a warm, pretty colour. Never knew it had gone out of fashion, maybe because we moved to France in the 80s. Quite liked the chintz too, but thought the headboard was much too tall.

Here is the Garden Picture thread, Fairygirl, http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/garden-pictures-2016-2/990056-8.html#latest , a flower one was also set up this year which probably rivalled it a bit.

I will be having a rest when we go to Norfolk, that was the idea behind going after Christmas.

I hope Wonky enjoys her new job.

Been to the Doc. Nasty virus, but he thinks it peaked last night so I should start feeling better. No bronchitis, thank goodness, had it 3 times a couple of years ago. OK for England on Friday but ears may be uncomfortable on the plane.

Gosh, is Wonky happy with that? Is her 'flu completely over? I suppose it means an earlier pay packet.

I watched the Marigold Hotel too. I found Japan very interesting, but I don't think I'd ever want to live there. Saw the Florida one too, don't think I'd want to live there either but it looked easier to live there than in Japan.

Esio Trot is great but didn't watch it this time. Liked Henry VIII's wives and Vienna and The Midwives, but I think TV is a bit disappointing at the moment.

Skimmias are short, round and bushy.

Can you move a Hibiscus?

Now is a good time, so long as you aren't having severe frosts. Anytime up to, including, March. As they are young, and you say small, there shouldn't be a problem. They are very pretty, but photo of size of plant may have been better.
