Be careful if you plant Virginia Creeper, it can be really rampant, almost a pest. Can't get rid of mine.

Have finished the plug plants at last. It's warm and windy today.

Good luck Hosta.

Are the markets good value near Norwich Dove? Sounds a good haul. Here they are more expensive than the supermarket.

Thank you, Lesley.

I've just changed to winter bedding this morning, DD. We had the summer duvet and mattress side, but in real summer it's just a sheet.

Morning all. Good luck with the scan Hosta.

I will be in the GH potting on plug plants this morning.

We are off to England tomorrow for a few days for OH's auntie's Memorial Service. She was 97. He looked on her as a Grandmother.

Hello again, have been away a few days. Had family staying for weekend, new grandson's Christening.

Also box of plug plants arrived, violas, polyanthus, forget me nots, daisies etc, so have been busy potting them up.

Hurray! Good luck Panda! Hope you enjoy it.

Morning all.

There is a lovely dogs home, Twilight, for old dogs here in SW France, run by an English couple. They ask for old duvets and bedding for the dogs. 

Going to pot up my new plug plants, but must have a clear out of the cold frames first.

When I replaced a dead climbing rose (it had been decimated by deer over the years, now have a fence) I removed 2 wheelbarrow loads of earth and replaced it with earth from the veggie garden, compost and manure. New rose is doing OK.

Lesley, I have shelves full of old GW magazines as well. But I don't think I've looked at them again. They are too beautiful to throw away, I'm not very good at throwing things away, there is a wardrobe full of clothes I'm now too fat for in a spare room.
