Trachelospermum Jasminoides

Mine is on a south wall and gets a good water 3 times a week in summer. I only fertilised it in spring with a slow acting organic fertiliser. Perhaps fertilising every month is too much and it's so well fed it doesn't feel the need to reproduce, so no flowers. They do like sun, I saw huge ones covered in flowers on south walls in Italy. The flowers buds are more likely to get frosted on an east wall.

I think Pixie generally has been a much better dancer than Simon. I was shocked when Darcie and Len voted against Pixie. Mark should have gone and Pixie should not have been in the dance off at all. I would have liked Caroline, Pixie and Frankie in the final. I'm beginning to think the results because of the general public votes are so stupid I may not watch it any more, just annoys me and takes away the pleasure of watching the dancing.

I have clematis Montana "Marjorie" and climbing Hydrangea Petiolaris on west walls.

Wherever it is, it looks warmer than here. Montecarlo?

Done about half my Christmas cards now, printed out my Christmas letter.

My garden looks like it's been burgled!

I still have Salvia Amistad and Wendy's wish in flower. But when I was weeding and planting tulips yesterday I found daffodil shoots. Haven't had a frost yet in Dordogne, most unusual.

Gardening in a T shirt, in December!  Needs to be 20° for me to do that!

Morning all. Still haven't had a frost here.

Going to a Christmas Fair tomorrow, hope to get a couple more stocking presents. In aid of a charity that looks after retired English police horses here in France.
