I was really looking forward to the last helping of Christmas pudding that I left in the fridge and someone has eaten it!
I was a nurse, seen lots of naked men so didn't mean much to me, but it's not worth falling out over it.
Off to watch Sherlock.
The photos were just men, we probably all know what they look like. I agree with little-ann. Ladies don't think as the men do when men are presented with naked young ladies. But there has been some admiring of Aidan Turner here! At least he wore a towel!
Oh dear! I wonder if the poor thing will recover, hope it got rained on!
We had severe frosts in October which seemed to send a lot of plants to sleep, so I don't have much out.
Winter Honeysuckle, pansies, violas, a couple of polyanthus in flower. My Daphne died in the hot summer. SW France.
Happy New Year Marion. I have enjoyed your threads and your lovely photos. Glad you are starting a new one.
But I love Pink Lady Apples, one of my favourites!
I've always pruned in late Feb/March, here in France and when I lived in Kent. Here my roses are flowering in May.
Happy 2016 everyone, may your gardens flourish.
Hello Clarice, I remember you here before. I hope 2016 will be a better year for you. I am an hour from Riberac, a bit NE of Périgueux.
Bird poo is good in compost, chicken poo is used commercially. Don't put cooked meat and fish in it, encourages rats. Newspaper and fine wood shavings are good in compost as well, improves the texture. There should be dry waste like that as well as wet waste from rotting vegetable waste. I put used paper kitchen towels in the compost.
Thanks Chel, worth thinking about. I find that parsnips germinate better if you wait until April when the ground has warmed up a bit. Some seed packets say to sow them too early, then I find they don't germinate.
