Lyn - you may regret the daffs late spring, but think of the smiles they will give you early in the season.  Verd - glad you are now superfast.  Like lyn, we are end of the line, rural, etc,etc, due an upgrade about 2022 

London day today - will catch up with you all on the train later.

Thanks all for your good wishes

Just in from a lovely dinner out with Mr C - new restaurant round the corner, very nice indeed.

hope the floor survived its soaking Dove.  And on the subject of tv - have you all seen that Monty has a new gardening series starting Monday - something about big dreams for small spaces....

Mine are in pots, in the shade, but very sad.  I agree about sticking to the orientals

Snoodle ...bless

Hoping the weather cheers up soon - its making me feel a bit like KEF..  Hope tomorrow is a better day Yvie.  DD - liquidambers are luuuuuuuverrlly - its leaves should be on the turn very soon.

Glad you now have options for Mum, Verd.  Hard decision, but feel sure you'll get to what is right for her.

The sun will be shining tomorrow .....its our wedding anniversary, and it very rarely fails to make an appearance to mark the occasion.  20 years ....gosh, how did that happen.....feels like yesterday (well, maybe not that recent, but you know what I mean)

Any ideas what this tree is - it has insignificant white flowers, followed by these berries, and turns a lovely yellow in the autumn.  Could well be a self seeded one.
