Wow...what a wonderful show tonight.

Some of the celebs this year are amazing.....the performances of Pixie, Frankie & Caroline were off the scale tonight.

Caroline & Pasha's dance almost reduced me to tears, it was so beautiful.....but danced to Aerosmith's beautiful 'don't want to miss a thing', how could they fail?

No talent at all involved, but I even liked the Batman routine.

Quote of the night from the judges for me, was when Craig said of Scott 'It's was like a lobster on acid'.

At last week's camera club meeting we were given a talk by Mr Stuart Crump about monochrome photography. Some of my enthusiasm for the subject seems to have rubbed-off here earlier in the week.

If anyone would care to take a look at Stuart's work, this is his website: http://www.stuartcrump.com/

David K, is she un-attached ?

 

Well not married as such, pd...but has been with her (the only ever) partner for about 25 years.

You would like her, (unlike Pa) she has brains, she is an accountant.

Note to oneself, probably the most personal info I've ever I've ever divulged online.

Good luck with your sowings, Yviestevie.....I think the timing is about right.

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Poppy - from experience  I can confirm that these childhood memories intensify with the passing years. I too have strong childhood memories of sweet peas going back to granddad & my own dad.

At that time the most popular sweet peas grown were 'Spencer' varieties (still popular & available today) these were developed & introduced by the gardeners of the Althorpe Estate.....Lady Di's family, of course.  

I have no personal knowledge of any other revived vegetable seed unfortunately.

For myself I don't save sweet pea seed as it's important to be sure I'm growing flowers that will be true to type.....because of cross-pollination this can't be assured with saved seed. Also, I do like to trial new introductions.

Re your June sown SPs, I can only presume that they will form seed pods as this is the normal progression of things, but likely the onset of cold weather may intervene to prevent it.

Wallflowers

Perhaps worth a mention....be careful where you source your wallflowers from, as being a member of the brassica family it's possible to import club root into your garden.

How dare you, Frank!  I can only suppose that you've activated the 'ignore button'.

So we may be reunited you will need to un-ignore me again.

Click on 'My settings' (top right of the page) Scroll down to 'Members I am ignoring'....you'll probably see my name in the box. All you need to do is remove it.

 

I post this although I've never ignored anyone deliberately or unintentionally.

 

Just a thought, Franks isn't going to be able to read this if he's ignoring me.
