Yum yum - thanks. Surreptitiously tapping on my phone whilst waiting for ceremonies to start. Sure the teachers won't notice !!

Verdun - now that you have your mind on grasses - i have three miscanthus types in pots bought in the summer. Am i too late to plant them now? Or should i just sink the pots in the ground, or should i keep in GH??? Many thanks

Christmas pudding made and (v important) stirred.  Lots of wishes made.  All ready for 8 hours steaming tomorrow.

Fruit for Christmas cake also soaking.  Kitchen smells all Christmassy !!  Know I'm not allowed to use the C** word yet - but given that I am doing genuine Christmas baking, I feel that I should have special dispensation for this weekend only.

Andy - so sorry to hear you have been in the wars. Really hope they can sort out whatever it is - in the meantime take it easy - its perfect weathet for armchair gardening

I have a day of errands today, then some garden tidying up tomorrow.

Sad to say goodbye to Monty yesterday - i always enjoy GW on a Friday evening.  And its reminded me to get out there and take some viburnum opulus cuttings

Lol Gilly - if you'd known the photo plane was hovering you could have given them a wave !

Sounds like a good start has been made on that hedge Fairy.

Did you make a technology decision V ? Remember it needs to be something with a lens - you promised us pics

Our google earth was updated a couple of weeks ago too - they must be having a spree! Only know because there was a note on the village website - no washing out here, but i had abandonned the wheelbarrow in the middle of the grass!!

Morning all

Have a great time at the open air museum Lizzie - looks like another sunny day, so perfect for it.  It is the standard day trip for every primary school in Hampshire/Surrey/Sussex - so have been there a few times, but never tire of it.  Its so easy to imagine that you are really in that time period as you wander round - be prepared to cover 5 centuries in a few hours

My bareroot David Austin roses (3x the Fairy - thanks to Matty for the photo and inspiration) arrived yesterday.  Moved them into the porch to keep out of the frost and will plant them up tomorrow (i have Fri pm off work).
