HELLO FORKERS!

Braved the wind and the rain to get my tulips planted (weekend gardeners can't afford to be fair weather gardeners) - and then came back in to a house that smells of Christmas.  Both the cake and the pudding are doing their thing 

Top jobs for the weekend

Clearing my pots of the summer annuals, planting up with tulips instead, and another assault on the weeding

Morning all - Christmas Puddings are steaming away - only 7 1/2 hours to go
Now off to get my hair cut, then back to make the C cake, and hopefully still have time to plant up my tulip pots before the sun sets.

Meant to be going to torchlit procession and fireworks tonight, but forecast for later is yukk - so we will see.

Hope Panda has a good weekend away ( with her bingo winnings in her pocket ) - and good to see you OL

Great picture David - makes up for the fact that it is hissing it down here
Great win Panda - that'll buy a lot of plants
Hang on in there Matty - thinking of you

One more day at work, then hope to get some gardening done at the weekend. Plus make my christmas cake and puddings - the "big stir" takes place tonight

Steve - i go to a Gardening Group near you - about 200 members, with a meeting next week. If you want to PM me the details I could get them read out with the other notices at the meeting?

Indoor treated bulbs.

I bought both at a Garden centre this week - it was a Wyevale one, but i'm sure others will have them too. Look for the displays of containers etc - they like to try and sell you bulbs, compost and a pot for them all in one go !
