Agree with Nut about the clocks. I rather like a cosy evening in front of the woodburner. Don't like snow and cold winds. Like the excitement of the first snowdrops poking through.

SgLily thank you for pointing me in the direction of Fidget's lovely wedding photos

I went to see DD this afternoon, we had a nice long chat. Her garden is still looking lovely and she gave me a bag of walnuts and an apple. The apple was for my horse, Lena, who I've lent to a 16yr old girl and now lives on the way home from DD.

I seem to have missed the Fidget wedding party thread. It was just as we were going to England for a busy few days so didn't come here. Not good with OH's iPad, which had a very poor signal anyway. I hope everything was wonderful for her.

Oh dear, I've missed all this, just as we were going away for a few days. I hope Fidget had a lovely day and has a lovely honeymoon.

Morning all.

Hello DD have been trying to ring you, sent an email.

Got dressed in gardening gear to muck out the field shelter and clear up the veggie garden, then realised I have to go on an errand, unless I postpone it.

Elderly brain moment! I'd just been reading back and, as usual, there was more than the brain could cope with!

Morning all. Just got back from a few days in England. It was OH's auntie's Memorial Service. She was 97.

I hope Mr Fidget is OK and that Panda has a good first day in her new job.

Need help identify some plants

3 I think is a sort of Silene which some people think is a weed but others like it and grow it, it's quite pretty so the choice is yours.

6  is a Choisya Ternata.

I think I agree with Hostafan, but the photos are a bit small.

Don't let yourself be stressed DD. I'm sure she'll be delighted you are looking after the garden. I expect she will be a help and won't expect perfection. I don't like other people's houses and garden to be perfect, makes me feel inadequate!

We are off to the UK, Ryanair, at lunchtime.

I went to a Garden Club meeting last night, there was an interesting talk about snowdrops. There are over 1500 varieties and some are very rare and expensive, collectors go mad for them! Then there was a quiz. I came tie first and will be getting Galanthus "Grumpy" as a prize, when it's the right time of year to pot it up. 

Lovely red leaves

Be careful if you plant Virginia Creeper, it can be really rampant, almost a pest. Can't get rid of mine.
