They are very pretty but they are what we call Spanish bluebells and people are worrying that they will take over from the native English ones as they are very vigorous. The English ones are scented. Bit like grey squirrels chased away the red ones!

Hurray, Monty said on the last programme that it will stay an hour long when it starts again in March!

Busy day today, Harvest Festival, gave groceries to a charity. Then 25 came to our house for a Bring and Share lunch. Had to use 2 rooms and garden tables, but it went really well. Everyone cheerful and super food. Taken a bit of time to clear up.


Looking forward to Strictly and Poldark.

Thanks Pat, funny to see spring flowers when we are having autumn! They don't look quite like our English bluebells which have hanging heads. Are they scented?

Nanny Beach, have you seen the Birthday thread?  http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/its-my-birthdaypart-two/914005-21.html/  

Strictly is back!

I liked the ones I usually like, Danny, Ore, Daisy and Louise. But no one really shone tonight.

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY....PART TWO

Oh I seem to be late, no Internet this morning, phone man repairing line and sockets, then very busy afternoon and out this evening.


Anyway, I hope Fairygirl, Topbird and Nanny Beach have or had very happy Birthdays.

Been a busy day. Phone man this morning while I was arranging tables and doing HW for the Bring and Share lunch I'm hosting for 25 tomorrow. Made salads and cooked chicken this afternoon then went to see OH singing with the choir. Was just in time to start recording Strictly while I made supper, which we then went and ate in front of the TV. OH only watches it for Darcy Bussell, but he fell asleep.

You'll still have the photo.


Phone repair man/electrician came this morning. He's replaced a white plastic box, added another, changed some wires, done something in the cellar and tested all 6 phone sockets. Hopefully now Internet will work better.


OH is singing in a concert later this afternoon. I'll go and watch him. Hopefully be back in time for Strictly.

Thank you for mentioning your Bressingham photos, Dove. I'd missed them. Lovely.


Congratulations Hosta, on weight and the rock.


Welcome back Topbird.


I didn't have a lie in this morning and was too busy to come here! I've done lots of sewing, repairing children's clothes and the cut in his duvet cover that one naughty little grandson had done. Daughter suggested an outing but the grand children didn't want to, they were happy to play together. There was a frost this morning but the sun came out and it got quite warm. They played in the garden. I made Cottage Pie for lunch and we all went out for a walk, but some took their bikes.


Now I'm back home as daughter's husband will be home for the weekend. First daughter and her OH return from Venice on Sunday and will collect her 3.
