Should be fine.

Seeds are up

First seedlings up, tiny ageratums came up 4 days after sowing and 2 French marigolds! Hope marigolds will carry on coming, should be about 30 - but they are seeds left over from last year.

I like cooking Bunny but it would be tomorrow by the time I get there!

Spent afternoon cleaning kitchen and dining room while OH and son watched rugger. Boring, why did I write that!

My computer (poor reception area) is starting to take rather a long time to get the photos, especially Bev's. I had to stop looking at Happy Marion's thread on winter wonderlands because her photos were too big. Some photos come quite quickly. Oh, Bev's hyacinth has just arrived!

Son came to lunch so we had main meal then, salmon, peas, runner beans, rice, sauce then lemon tart and fruit salad.

I thought Joe Swift didn't do circles, only straight lines. Did Becks want circles? Must check with council about fence - may be the cheaper option, not allowed. Seeds would be the least expensive, and less likely to be nicked. Becks are you sowing any flowers in those new greenhouses? Hardy annuals, like pot marigolds (calendula), love in a mist (nigella), nasturtiums can just be scattered on the gound and raked in a bit, or covered with a bit of earth.

Sorry about your bed Bjay, yet another unwanted expense I suppose.

Geoff, can you get Shredded Wheat in Spain? You can't in France. Nor Shreddies, or Grape Nuts.

14° now, quite nice, sun and cloud. They cancelled our snow forecast for Monday, but they say colder on Wednesday 7°.

Frank, my son has gout on and off and he's only 30! The Doc said it's genetic, but he still has to control his diet. As you must know, it can be horribly painful. I only have osteo-arthritis.I don't understand how cold wet weather makes it worse.
