 I know what you mean about liking your neighbour, Philippa. I have an old lady of a similar age living by me......she also has a couple of large trees growing along our mutual boundary.

We have a very amicable arrangement, I keep the trees cut back to safe proportions and she makes the most delicious apple pies I've ever tasted for me.

I would of course do it without the apple pies, but it makes her feel that she has contributed.

Goodness, Philippa....'not the greatest disaster in the history of mankind', to others maybe not, but it's your property and it matters.

So sorry to hear this & I send my hugs too.

Well, (IMHO) anyone who writes "Yes I have my books, papers diplomas etc and degrees",  in the sure knowledge of how much it irritates peeps here, must be doing it with tongue in cheek....and laughing his socks off at the replies.

Isn't that what WUMs do?

"Yes I have my books, papers diplomas etc and degrees."....not forgetting your impressive profile of course. Take a look at mine and I'm sure you'll feel much better.

Your favourite tomato varieties

Sungold will always (and rightly so) be at the top of surveys like this.

Having said that, for those wishing to grow outdoor tomatoes and are plagued by the dreaded blight, I would suggest trying 'Ferline'.....a great tasting variety that is more blight-resistant than most.

 Just spotted this, taken during one of my many sunset hunting missions during the gorgeous summer of 2014.

Never quite managed the perfect one!

Great take, Bob....I prefer my snow to be on Christmas cards, rather than the M6.

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

That's about as it should be, Gg...mine have their first pair of leaves now. It's possible that some more seeds will germinate...obviously they will be slow, because of the low temperatures.

 A bird feeder opportunity. Not even sure what it is, but did change it to b & w for those who like them.
