The star shaped flowers are isotoma AuntyRach - they are annuals that you can find in GCs with the hanging basket plants around May time.  The pots in that picture are a mixture of chimney pots and rhubarb forcers that we have collected over the years

Dove - we found an abandonned water barrow like you describe in the undergrowth in our garden when we first arrived .....Mr C was pleased as punch . It didn't take me long to plant it up with flowers and it now has pride of place by the front door ......see if you can spot it in the pic below

Morning all  i'm back on the early shift again

Bargain Pat

work today - survived yesterday ok, will get back in the swing today.  But day off tomorrow - shopping trip with Chicklet was part of her Christmas pressie ......I no longer trust myself to second guess her wardrobe.  No DMs for her - they were the regulation school shoes for 5 years,so put her off for life.  Converse, however, may feature

Beau - a hoar frost is one that turns all the trees white as well as just the grass - not exactly sure why, but its something to do with moisture in the air.  We get lots of ground frosts, but very few of the ones where it makes it look like its been snowing.

Shabby Chic Anyone?

And hooray for no more mad shift work
