Good heavens Papi Jo, your flowers are amazing! I have Orkney Cherry, about 4 years old, stopped flowering in August and is only about 1 foot wide.

That's a gorgeous anemone. Does it need staking? I have an ordinary pink one and it always falls over if not securely tied up.

Morning all.


Have a happy anniversary the Fidgets.


Oh dear DD, maybe you've got something in it. Hope they sort it.


We are going to supermarket, need butter and milk and loo rolls. But first will pick up my M & S order of winter pullovers from the paper shop. The delivery people can never find my house.


Mild frost again -2°

Can you Identify this Jasmine & Share any tips?

That's encouraging.


My J. Polyanthum survived the winter outside the kitchen wall in a pot. It's twined itself all over the grill on the larder window. But it was a mild winter. Think I may re-pot it and leave it there as it's got too big to bring in.

I thought "Wild Swans" was a great book, really interesting. There are parts of the world I know nothing about. I enjoyed "City of Joy" and "Geisha" too.

Strictly is back!

I agree with Doghouse and Obelixx about Tameka. But I find Judge Rinder very irritating.

Glad you enjoyed your day Dove. Look forward to the pictures. I haven't seen Bressingham this late in the year.


I've cut down some finished perennials, lots more to do.


Doing sea bass with homegrown veg from the freezer, incl. broad beans, love them.

I agree with Verdun. I've lost small plants in the past because of cold and/or wet winters, slugs and snails or the cat digging them up. Re-pot them and put them somewhere safe like a cold frame. They won't need much watering in winter anyway and they will grow bigger in the spring and be better to plant out.

I think he's got it! I would say the same.

Yum, I like a touch of cinnamon too.


I really should be outside cutting down old perennials ...
