Christmas lights in the garden

Posted: 30/11/2014 at 19:03

No Christmas lights here alas - a neighbour has blue and red (very garish) lights on a tree which have been on for a few months... strangely they're currently turned off so perhaps they're preparing a fantastic surprise for us all. I have a bay tree by the front door with solar lights on -  its lovely in the summer nights to see it on (doesn't get enough light for winter so its often flat before we get home). I really must invest in some more solar lights - not sure where they'll go in the garden yet though!

Chilli plant has buds?

Posted: 29/11/2014 at 12:52

Lookd like it to me! Where have you got this plant? I've just cleared the last of my chillies from the greenhouse (too cold for them to ripen now I think) & am already planning for next years planting (January I think).

Morning all! Work is dragging me under right around now. Who needs sleep or rest or time to wash your socks right...? (& I'm loving it!)

Well other half points out this isn't healthy in the long term and that I must put down the works laptop and concentrate on my hobbies some more. Though this may mean weeding by candle light! So I'm back! To muse inspiration for what is a very half completed garden right now. 

I cannot wait for the first frost

Evening all. Somewhat under the weather here as well as very busy (131 students getting guided tours this week alone) so apologies if you don't see me around. I do keep poking my head in to see what I'm missing!

Not gardening but a computer question

Kef - go for windows 7. You CAN still get it if you know where to look as I just brought it on my (aka I brought and paid for) work laptop. I'll get you the details tomorrow as I'm tucked up with my hot water bottle right now!
