Talkback: December gardening jobs

Posted: 10/12/2012 at 22:02
I have had a queue of birds at my feeders too, and I've got Mr & Mrs Blackbird fighting with the Starlings for the meal worms. I to love this mouth, well every month and season really. You have to accept every season for what it is.

What's the weather like in your area?

Palaisglide, we went to Morecambe for a friends retirement party so we didn't go for the seaside, went into Blackpool too as my step daughter lives there. Anythime of the year, it is still a beautiful part of the country. The sun has been out today in Bournemouth quite cold but at least it is dry.

Came back from a few days in Morecambe yesterday, ooh it was  cold up there. Looking across Morecambe bay there was snow on the hills. Yes I'm from Dorset and yes I'm a southern softie but I don't care. Its been raining today here in Bournemouth but at least it is warmer than Morecambe.

December 2013 Issue - The Calendar

Posted: 22/11/2012 at 17:35

I started a thread about the calendar in the potting shed. It is still a lovely calendar and the pictures are beautiful, it was the size that took me by surprise. Like Verdun says, it is free so thumbs up for that.

The pictures are lovely, I really like October and December. I love Nerines they are so pretty and that robin is lovely.

I have received my Gardeners World magazine for December this morning along with the free 2013 calendar which has shrunk in size. Don't get me wrong, it is still a nice calendar but seems so small compared to other years, I was quite surprised when I saw it. 

Gardeners World program

We've had endless repeats of Only Fools and Horses so why not Gardeneres World especially the Geoff Hamilton ones. I do have some of these on DVD, didn't pay a fortune for them though, only £1 at a car boot sale heehee!

Wish I could say the same about the weather here in Bournemouth, dull dull dull and dull. 

Talkback: Winter shelter for wildlife

Your little mouse is so cute Kate. I have never had them in the house but I have caught a few in the greenhouse in humane traps, this was back in the spring. My husband then has the job of taking them to the common and letting them go. The spiders have been in, I just catch then in a jar and take them outside and let them go. Some have been quite large.

The last programme in the series

Brilliant programme Monty and so nice to see Nigel on the road to recovery. Looking forward to seeing you again in 2013.
