They leave Primulas and hellebores alone here (you can get some good reds in those)  and snowdrops are ok too.  We also have a lithodora (bright blue flowers) that is doing well and gives flowers for a long season, which might be good for a churchyard.

Morning Jo, Morning Dove

Early start today ....another Christmas do for me today, but a meeting to get through first.

Yesterday's lunch was good - my baby photo was guessed on the basis of the vintage of the picture.  The others are all mere youngsters, who had their early years captured in technicolour.

And good morning to those that follow

Great tree Dove - can spot a partridge AND a pear

Keep meaning to ask Dyers what the balloons are at the top of Alfie's tree - it looks like it is about to float away to the man-in-the-moon (.....half the world away ....)

Belated morning all.

So glad they have a plan LilyP - albeit one with a slow burn.  Take it easy.  Invest in some good books to keep you occupied over the next few months.

Bad news for Yvie's daughter - no wonder they say moving house is one of the great traumas of modern life....I'm sure it doesn't have to be that way, there must be a better system

I, too, have a works Christmas lunch today ( and another tomorrow - been working for two teams this year).  Today's involves baby pictures .....this is what this chicky used to look like .....do you think anyone will guess
