Mr BB - i don't do anything to mine - they stay outside in their pots, and seem to happily survive the winter.  If I have any pruning to do (often they are fine to be left as they are) then i do it in spring.

Hiya Andy - great to hear you're keeping well.  And that the hanging baskets survived the gales.

Lily - MD - seriously jealous.  Glad you enjoyed it.

Garden (correction - weeds) calling me today - and the forecast rain is missing us - yippee!!

CLARI ! you forgot to pick me up

Thats what we use our very old Landrover for Clari - although without the pressure washing.

just checked the weather forecast and it says rain for tomorrow - which might scupper my weeding plans once again. . Lets hope they are wrong ( after all their super-computer hasn't arrived yet, so I can live in hope).

Sounds like a plan KEF - at least thats my costume sorted

 I do have very tiny feet, but I'm afraid thats where the similarities end (ie not often found washing a floor)

I have double booked, and have theatre tickets for tomorrow.  I'll be along later, so could someone put these out to line the path?  (The chicklets have been very industrious with their Dad's bumper crop)

We have plenty here this year.  Have recently become a fan of toasted pumpkin seeds as a snack, and was going to save some.  But Mr Google has just informed me that the edible ones come from a different sort of Pumpkin.  So that explains why the ones in the packs are green, and the ones in my pumpkins are white.  Self sufficiency remains just that little bit out of reach.  Which means I'd better go earn something to pay the grocery bill......see you later gardening peeps

Morning Dove, and those to come.  Thanks for reminding me - our bins need to go out this morning too, and i forgot last night.  Not peeked out yet, but its got to be better than yesterday's mizzly drizzle.

first pumpkin carved last night ....Stacey, if you're looking in, we're thinking of you
