Talkback: Christmas traditions

Posted: 24/12/2012 at 18:29

It has always been a tradition in our house to have fresh veg from the garden on Christmas day. My dad always did it and now I do the same. Christmas never feels the same any more with out my mum and dad here but I will always have fresh veg from the garden on Christmas day.
Happy Christmas to all at Gardeners World and a Happy New Year.

Bees in garden

That is a lovely photo. I had the same thing with my Fox Gloves, the bees were mad for them too. It is just amazing to watch them buzz in and out of the flowers and to watch how they move the petals about to get in. 

Talkback: Building bird boxes

What a brilliant idea for Christmas presents Kate. I've got two blue tit boxes up in my garden one didn't have any birds in it this year as it wasn't up very long but the other one has had several blue tit families in there over the years. I love to watch them flying in and out feeding their young. Poor things they work so hard.

Talkback: Winkworth Arboretum

We went to the Edinburgh Botanic Garden in September. Unfortunately the weather wasn't too good it was raining quite hard and we didn't see all of the garden. What we did see was just beautiful though. I do want to go back and hopefully the weather will better. It is lovely to get out in to the garden this time of year, even if it is only for a while or until you can't feel your fingers and toes anymore.

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.
