Gosh, is Wonky happy with that? Is her 'flu completely over? I suppose it means an earlier pay packet.

programmes to watch

I watched the Marigold Hotel too. I found Japan very interesting, but I don't think I'd ever want to live there. Saw the Florida one too, don't think I'd want to live there either but it looked easier to live there than in Japan.


Esio Trot is great but didn't watch it this time. Liked Henry VIII's wives and Vienna and The Midwives, but I think TV is a bit disappointing at the moment.

Skimmias are short, round and bushy.

Can you move a Hibiscus?

Now is a good time, so long as you aren't having severe frosts. Anytime up to, including, March. As they are young, and you say small, there shouldn't be a problem. They are very pretty, but photo of size of plant may have been better.

Bulbs...

Should be OK for tulips. I only finished planting mine a few days ago.

Zinnia seeds

I start mine in March in an electric propagator, but I have a greenhouse and can keep them in it until frosts are over. Never been hard to germinate. I've also bought them as plug plants.

It looks like Red Robin to me, mine only has green leaves at this time of year. The new growth in Spring will be red.

That's a bit tough in winter. Even my cat, who is a semi wild stray, asks to come indoors in winter. She prefers to stay out in summer, but usually sleeps in the veranda.
