Frances Tophill is often on Gardener's World now, to add to the other women gardeners. She's the one who visited gardens in extreme spots.
Agree with aym about Monty's banana. It's something most of us probably don't have and he's spent some time last year and this year digging it up for the winter. I couldn't have one anyway, it's just too big and heavy. I prefer flowers anyway.
Love the colour of your Irises, Pat. If you don't have English bluebells then having Spanish ones doesn't matter. They are lovely anyway.
Such sad news from pdoc. When will it end?
Raining. Heating oil coming this morning, hopefully. Last week he never arrived because he couldn't find the house. Secretary said she'd given him detailed instructions.
They are very pretty but they are what we call Spanish bluebells and people are worrying that they will take over from the native English ones as they are very vigorous. The English ones are scented. Bit like grey squirrels chased away the red ones!
Hurray, Monty said on the last programme that it will stay an hour long when it starts again in March!
Busy day today, Harvest Festival, gave groceries to a charity. Then 25 came to our house for a Bring and Share lunch. Had to use 2 rooms and garden tables, but it went really well. Everyone cheerful and super food. Taken a bit of time to clear up.
Looking forward to Strictly and Poldark.
Thanks Pat, funny to see spring flowers when we are having autumn! They don't look quite like our English bluebells which have hanging heads. Are they scented?
Nanny Beach, have you seen the Birthday thread? http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/its-my-birthdaypart-two/914005-21.html/
I liked the ones I usually like, Danny, Ore, Daisy and Louise. But no one really shone tonight.
Oh I seem to be late, no Internet this morning, phone man repairing line and sockets, then very busy afternoon and out this evening.
Anyway, I hope Fairygirl, Topbird and Nanny Beach have or had very happy Birthdays.
