Went to hypermarket, followed by lunch at the Wok place (cheap Chinese buffet with friendly waitress). Amazing, hypermarket had one of my plant wishes for this year, Hydrangea Vanille Fraise, hope it's alive, just bare branches at the moment.

Morning all. -3° Bleak.

Wish I could help Lesley eat some of the contents of her freezer so she could carry on cooking, but Dordogne is a long way from Scotland!

Had a weird dream, was going on a hiking holiday, some of the people were from the forum! Stayed in a hostel. I thought it was warm so I put on a summer dress, but when I went down to breakfast everyone was wearing jeans, pullovers, anoraks and hiking boots!

I have some of them too. They are best sellers, although old. Used them a lot for my first garden in 1973.

We used to take our children swimming in that lake in the summer holidays. Here it is in summer, just to show you, but not a beautiful composition like DD's.


plant / weed id please

Grey one isn't a weed. I think not Lamb's Ears as leaves too wide, probably verbascum.

Frilly one looks like a weed I dig up regularly that smells a bit carroty. Could it be wild carrot? See photo.


Raspberry food

My raspberries seem to enjoy rose fertiliser.

DD, given the state of their tummies, I don't think they would have wanted to share!

Tigger is Tigger because he behaved like Tigger in Pooh Bear when he was very young, even though he isn't in the cat family.

Been watching recorded Mr. Selfridge.

KEF, Tigger, who I took to the vet, is a dog! He has a tummy upset, vet gave him an injection and some medicine. He lost a tooth a few days ago, but vet says that isn't related to the tummy. Getting old, 12.

Morning all. Frosty and -7° but it's melting in the sun. Taking Tigger dog to the vet this afternoon, he's still off his food and was sick in the night.
