Mmmmmm - now there's an interesting idea for leftover Christmas Pud

Made my grand tour of GCs with no luck.  Just found it on t'internet instead

Can't believe I have to go back to work tomorrow, and yet haven't set foot in the garden all weekend.  Can feel a major sulk coming on

Here is a googled picture of an escallonia - the slight jagginess of the leaf edges looks familiar - so I think Dove could well be right

Oooo Berghill - thats lovely

I have 5 that i bought as plugs last year - they have been out all summer, but I have just moved them in to a cold GH for the winter.  Only had one flowered so far, so hoping the others are as pretty

 I make a makeshift "theatre" out of bricks - shown here with the polyanthus instead

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

Posted: Yesterday at 10:58

Weeding, weeding and more weeding. Then mulching, cutting back and tidying.  Will probably take me through til next spring.

Pdoc - hope you had fun

Panda - Chicky most certainly hasn't got the gardening weather she wanted.  So will be making a tour of the local GC's in search of an outdoor clock little sis would like for Christmas.  Might have a little look round whilst I'm there

enjoy your sunshine Fairy

Glad your Mum is more settled now Verd - but tough for you.

Sofa shopping part ii took place today - far more successful.  Too wet for gardening.

welcome back Yvie - lovely to keep a surprise from firstborn - love surprises - both giving and receiving

Glad that path is nearly done Fairy - remember the gallery thread when you're done.

sounds like you are having a lovely time Lizzie - my sister lives near Brighton, and we love those coastal walks too.

settling down with a cuppa and some Chatto/lloyd letters

And so glad things feel a bit better now Matty - did you get in your garden today in the end??
