Slugs sometimes move across our large sitting room window - a great opportunity to watch the way their muscular foot moves - fascinating.

You can't beat Taylors http://www.taylorsclematis.co.uk/  for buying clematis online.  Superb choice, sturdy healthy plants, well packaged and delivered on the day they state.

Ma quite perky. Staff not worried now. I left her watching the groundsmen mowing the football and cricket pitches outside her window while she ate some scrambled eggs. Now I'm down by the harbour watching the turnstones on the harbour wall while I have a packet of crisps.
Oh, just heard Johann Cruyff has died. Now he really was a giant of football. Sad to see him go so young

I don't chip them and I don't soak them. I just sow them in moist compost. They germinate just fine

How about some Honeysuckle? I am on the right side of a boundary with huge confier type things, doesn't block my light and I've noticed a wild type of Honeysuckle in amongst them. Been working out how to take cuttings from it

layer a long strand into a container of damp soil, plonk a brick on it and leave - in 6 months you'll have a rooted plant.

Help!

Specsavers - go on their website to book an appointment - that way you can try several different towns and see what you can get.  I always get my specs from them - they seem always to do BOGOF above a certain price, and I always pick mine up within a couple of days.

Good luck

Also what about contacting your local Gardening Club, Hort Soc, etc - there may be someone with the urge to do more gardening than they have room for.

Good luck

Morning DD and Flumpy

The car has definitely changed Wonky's early mornings - the fact that she can leave stuff she might need at work (swimsuit, towels etc) in the car and not have to lug them with her on her walk then bus journey is a real bonus. 

Not sowing seeds today - will start over the weekend - this morning I'll be visiting Ma.
