I had heard lots of derogatory comments about Moneymaker - but we grew it this year and liked it - lots of flavour ( which is what its detractors complained about).
Great stile Archie. Bekkie - looking on the web will give the phone number of your nearest hedgehog rescue centre - with winter fast approaching I would call in the experts. Ouch MrsG - hope its getting less painful
Back from a wonderful weekend away - Beth Chattos and Hyde Hall were lovely - even at this time of year. Will post pics on gardens visited later in the week. Then this morning we had a lovely walk along an Estuary - blowy but sunny. Great meals out Friday and Saturday .... this turning 50 thing might not be so bad after all. Chicklets back at school tomorrow, but OH and I have 2 more days off - all day bike ride planned tomorrow, and Tower of London (inspired by Lily's pictures) for poppies on Tuesday. Need to do something to work off all those calories
That's it !!!
thank you all so much - its lovely to finally know what it is . I will remember it by thinking of Uncle Buck
Beth Chattos', here we come. If you are reading Beth - put the kettle on
And here it is back in spring, with its insignificant white flowers
Ok - finally been around in daylight - so here are some dissected berries. I also "had a sniff" - not a strong fragrance, but the vague hint of plum
There are two or three big seeds per berry - and the seeds are nearly as big as the berry itself
Thats a lot of daffs Steephill
No work for me today, and none til next Weds either .... a mini-hols. Chicklets still need taking to school though, so alarm went off at usual time. Might get out in the garden for a bit later - theres plenty of weeds out there that need tackling
Morning Lesley - fingers duly crossed - hope it turns out ok for all of you.
Morning Dove. Still hoping for the heatwave - visiting HydeHall and Beth Chattos this weekend, and would prefer to leave the snorkelling to Fidget
