That was my Grandad's favourite riddle Runny. And his favourite song was "there's a hole in my bucket" .....are you getting the picture

Absolutely agree with Buttercupdays and Jo - its lovely having plants in your garden that came from friends and family, and they are never truly yours, just borrowed for a while.  And I never fail to think of the givers when I am wandering round seeing whats what ......think thats why I'll never be a proper garden designer ....I keep things for their associations, even if they don't look spot on

Morning all  just got a wonderful scent walking down our front steps, and on closer inspection realised our Daphne (JP) is flowering a whole month earlier than usual. Heavenly

Mr C goes in for (hopefully) his last stent tomorrow, so won't be around much for a couple of days.  He has been back to his old self for the past week or so, so although it will be a shame to have him sofa-bound again, at least we know there is light at the end of the tunnel, and it is getting closer all the time

It's my birthday

Agree on the brown leaved begonia front... and anything that looks like a palm tree (Torbay or otherwise)

Ooops, forgot my manners ....Good Morning Folks

1st December, and countdown starts here

 The eagle eyed amongst you will spot that pockets 1-10 are slightly less bulging ....that's because Chicklet didn't want to miss out this year, so her first ones have been numbered, packaged up, and sent to Uni.  Which also means that it is only 10 more days before we get her back home for a bit.

Don't think Mr Chicky's childhood training was anywhere close to that. He believes all kitchen vessels and utensils should be given regular useage .....preferably all of them for every meal However, the results are invariably scrummy

Hey! It's christmas soon...wot are you getting me?
