Liri, yes they leave them up longer than the English. When we first came to France in 85, street decorations weren't put up until a few days before Christmas and taken down in February. We couldn't find a tree to buy until the week before Christmas. It's changing now though. But the old RC custom in countries like France and Italy was to take decorations down at Candlemas, 2nd February, which is also French pancake day.

Morning all. What a relief about Hosta! Glad Lily P got home safely after the funeral.

Mild, grey and damp here, not raining.

I wonder if I really will get round to taking down the C. tree today  It's still pretty and I'll miss it. It's a Nordman and hasn't lost a single needle.

The first 'Bramley's Seedling' apple tree grew from pips planted by Mary Ann Brailsford in 1809. You never know what will happen!

I've just seen the news too. Can't remember where Hosta said he was going. Did he say?

Glad you're feeling better KEF.

Made 2 curtains, just the hems to do, by hand so it'll take a bit of time.

My dear old Border Collie was 13 on the 28th. I think he's going a bit senile, he can only walk across the kitchen floor in one direction now so he has to go out by the front door and in by the back door.

Who are Golden Glove Productions? I found one theatre group, a company in America that deals with pop concerts and another that sells gloves, among other things. They don't sound very gardeny or BBC.

Comfrey. Can we juice it and drink it?

Edd, you may not be insane, but sometimes I think you're totally batty!
