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.

Yvie, your Mum sounds a gutsy lady

HF Young looks super, now where can I put it?

My dad wouldn't let me see "Girl on a Motorcycle" when I was 16 as she had bare breasts (so he'd read in the paper). My mother pointed out that I had breasts. My grandfather rushed off to see the film!

I have Etoile Violette in a westerly position, gets smothered with dark purple flowers, but may not be dark enough for you. I love it.

Have you looked at this site? I use it when I need advice. 

Garden Pictures 2015

I started it last year, but it was called "Garden Gallery 2014"

Your garden is gorgeous, Berghill, even in winter.

My garden is looking a bit sad at the moment worst time of year, but here are a few photos anyway, showing some tiny signs of life.



What's on your wishlist?

Posted: 01/02/2015 at 12:25


Last year had a bigger wishlist, I wanted Geum Totally Tangerine, Anemone White Swan, (Matty gave me those when she came to stay), Agastache Black Adder and Blue Boa (which I ordered online, and now have in the cold frame, hope they survive the winter), helenium Sahin's Early. That was all Verdun's fault. Also Buzz Budleia (which I found in England.) And more David Austin roses, we went to his nursery in Shropshire and bought five.

This year I want rose Lady of Shalott, as in photo (wish I'd bought one last year) and Hydrangia Vanille Fraise.

Hello all. OH remembered pinch punching this morning.

2kg of cow sounds a heck of a lot! We are having roast pork tonight with enough veg and roast veg to make into soup afterwards for tomorrow.

We had hail this morning. Snow is forecast next weekend. Must make sure supplies are in, esp. dog food, as if it snows we can't get up the drive.
