Morning all.
I'm sorry about your cat, Bushman. My dog is old and ill.

I'm at daughter's, she has something planned for later with the children, not sure what yet.

It's my birthday

Of course you can, in winter when they are dormant. That's one way growers propagate them.

Hello all. I'm staying with daughter 1, 3 small sons. We went bowling this afternoon. I was hopeless, then got a strike on last go! Was quite good in my yoof but now have arthritic fingers.

Hello Chicky, I've missed you on here. Good luck to Mr Chicky tomorrow, I'll be thinking of you.

Gosh, what a lot of colour some of you still have. I've had 3 frosts and down to -4°. A lot, including dahlias, needs cutting down and tidying up, but I haven't had time yet.

Gertie, you make holes in the cake and pour in lemon juice with melted sugar in it so it isn't dry.

Back from the charity Quiz and Curry. It was fun and went well. Some delicious puds

Going to stay with daughter tomorrow for a couple of days, & 3 small grandsons.

Morning all.

My dog had a good clean night Thank you for thinking of him. Maybe he just ate something he shouldn't.

Dove, my Renault flashes up a warning light regularly about the air bags needing servicing. Two garages have told me there is nothing the matter with the air bags, it's a fault to do with the wiring and computer and isn't uncommon with Renaults.

Helping with Quiz and Curry tonight in the village hall. Have made curry for 10, chicken casserole for 6 and a pud.

I have had osteo arthritis in hands and left hip for years. When I took hormone treatment for the menopause it almost disappeared but it's back now and my right knee that I injured in a skiing accident has now got it. Nuisance as I weed kneeling on a mat. Doc said that the hands were due to wear and tear from milking Jersey cows by hand.

Yummy! Especially with mashed carrots, turnips and butter

Parsnips in France

They have only recently started coming back in France. A French friend told me they were a staple food during the war and everyone was sick of them so they went out of fashion. The first ones I saw in our local supermarket about 5 years ago had a big label on them to say they were from England!

My daphne died suddenly, only grew it because I wanted to know what it smelt like and I've never seen one round here, Dordogne. Now I know why! A friend gave me a Gardenia in a pot, it died too. Choisya grows well here, so does Exochorda "the Bride" and Sambucus "Black Lace"
