Morning all

Can't remember what colour Dixon of Dock Green wore - telly was black and white then.

mizzly drizzly here again.  Went out for a long walk with littlest chicklet yesterday evening, came back at dusk, and who was there to greet us on the footpath but Brock the Badger - looked at us for a few seconds and then trundled off.  Made us very happy.  Closely followed by 2 deer and a fox, we felt like we were on safari.

Love it too.  It shows on BBC2 in England on Sunday morning - just after the repeat of Gardeners World.  I record it and then sit down for a treat on Sunday evening

Pumkins, fruit but vines dead?

Hi Chris - we are growing pumpkins for the first time this year, so i am by no means an expert.  However, ours still have very green foliage, so what has happened to yours does not look good.  Have they been getting lots of water?

Loved rose the Fairy.  

Not keen on thalictrum elin - which grew to the promised 8 ft then flopped - no colour to speak of either
