If I use large pots for annuals I don't change the soil down to the bottom, just change the top few inches of compost.

I must dig out all the Vinca minor that is taking over the end of my big herbaceous border and smothering plants that are in there. I never planted it in the first place - don't know where it came from! Have another unplanted patch under a conifer, it can stay there.

We had guests a couple of weeks ago who gave me a box of Belgian chocolates with 3 layers. I ate them all in 2 days! Anyway chocolate contains an anti-depressant

Pam, I may upset people too because I completely agree with you. I have lived in the country most of my life. Fox hunting is the way of killing that foxes do themselves. The fox either gets off free or is killed very quickly at the end. Shooting can leave foxes horribly injured.  The fox gets away and sometimes the huntsman thinks he's missed, when what he's done is riddle the poor fox with holes full of shot, still alive.

 I used to have hedgehogs, years ago. Don't know what happened to them, but I do have badgers. Last winter I found an old dead one by the lawnmower in the lean to. There is a sett halfway up our drive.

Hello all. This this was beginning to sound like the weather thread! But then the weather does have a huge influence in gardening. It is influencing this afternoon for me! Lawn going "squelch, squelch". Think I'll do some more ironing.

This morning I went to a meeting about starting a bereavement support group for English people in France.
