I think they look really nice & definitely good prices.

I realise I am in the minority but do you deliver to France? I get desperately frustrated when I see things I like on UK websites & then international delivery is not available. Sometimes, even with the price of carriage products are still cheaper than here in France or worse still just not available. 

Very best wishes for your growing business. 

It's my birthday

Thanks all, had a lovely day & a nice warm feeling to have such nice wishes sent via the Forum, feel part of the family now.

Morning all,

Beautiful frosty morning here, sunny now but wasn't earlier. Just as I was enjoying my glass of wine & chocs by the fire last night I got a message from running coach reminding me of an agreement to do a Sunday morning run - 9:00 am - least that meant I didn't drink too much. 

So feeling good now having got that over with, only an hour but my conscience is clear - can finish off the chocs now. 

Not sure what to do today, too frozen for gardening, maybe a long walk later -so pretty out there. 

Plants Clari, I haven't managed to kill my inherited Wandering Jew yet and it some lovely colours on it.

FairyG your garden (as always) looks lovely, given me some great ideas & inspiration. 

Thanks for that Joyce, they do look so lovely, think my plan is coming together now.

Welcome, hope you enjoy the site as much as I have the last 6-7 months! Great people, great advice & so much to learn.

It's my birthday

Thanks all, so much cake, don't know where to start, Dove that is certainly a masterpiece! 

Quiet day at home with chocs, wine & a blazing fire, perfectly happy with that - how times have changed.

Thanks all, of course 27 again! 

Thought all my birthday wishes had come true earlier - 2 rather dishy fireman knocked on the door smiling - unfortunately they were only doing a fundraising thing selling calendars, have to be content with the pin up rather than the real thing.  

Having a reprise from my dryathon tonight, it is my birthday,  OH has downloaded the seriesas a treat for me - so thoughtful, didn't want a lovely romantic night out at the theatre or nice restaurant anyway. 

Think the bird I spotted may well be a green woodpecker too, thanks for the info. Also noticed there is a bird count going on here in France this week-end so don't feel quite so left out now. Details below for any other French followers.

Right back to my vin and  Death in Paradise , good evening all ! 

P.S. Amazon books are ordered and on the way.

BM new garden looks really amazing, you are going to have so much fun.

Got some books in my wish list at Amazon, thank you for recommendations, sent to OH - it is my birthday today so hopefully they will materialise. 


A Time for Silence by Thorne Moore, The Winter Ghosts by Kate Mosse & The Secret Keeper, by Kate Morton. 

Been for a lovely snowy walk, was snowing quite heavily but stopped for now, think more on it's way though. Time to sit by a fire with my birthday choccies I think.

Ooh, hadn't thought of heucheras, they are lovely, some great colours too.

Good morning, beautiful sky here, rippled with pink but very cold & frosty.

Thank you for book suggestions, I especially like mysteries & detective stories although not too graphic, not keen on the very popular grizzly forensic ones, too gory. like the ones with interesting detectives. I don't like romances but do like stories exploring human nature - if you know what I mean.  BL so kind of you to offer to loan some books, can we arrange a meeting? 

Dove, I keep seeing an odd bird here, nearly as big a pigeon but a greenish yellow colour - any ideas? Don'tthink I should join in Great British Birdwatch though. 

Clari, have a good day with your parties & I hope you get your dog soon, Shadow has been such a joy. 

Hope all have a good day too, wherever you all may be.
