I hope you have a really lovely day 

HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning all   

Oh dear Ed!  I love sailing, but I do get seasick - you have my sympathy.  Hope the next adventure is calmer!

All those steps!!!  I remember years ago hearing someone on the radio saying that people living around the Mediterranean don't get dodgy hips and knees in their old age because they keep active with lots of steps and no bungalows!  I'm not convinced but hopefully Liri will prove me wrong.    I think I'd rig up a pulley system for the shopping - or invest in a small donkey 

It looks like Hefty and friends have been partying on the terrace - a bit of sweeping needs doing!  Also lawns to mow, edges to edge and dead-heading to be done.  Oh, and the garage to sweep and tidy now that the furniture has been delivered to daughter and son in law.   But I'm not going to start without OH and he's had a heavy week so is still sound asleep .... I'd best have another coffee and see what's been going on around here.

At least the PMs are working - Daniel's been able to convince the tech team that it's the big advert that caused the problem.  

Oh, and isn't it someone's birthday?  Twenty-one gun salute required!!!

Plant ID please

Shrub ID - Best time for harsh cut back??

No probs Dave   - I said November/December 'cos I thought she was itching to get on with it .................... and I'd want to get it done before the beginning of the nesting season so must be finished by mid Feb at the latest. 

Plant ID please

I think you might be right Fluffy Cloud

I will/I won't grow that again

I'm growing the white flowered Emergo runner beans for the first time - recommended by Verdun - brilliant beans - setting and cropping really well - long straight string-free well flavoured beans.  Very happy

My instinct says keep them frost free - but I've no idea whether it really matters. 

Need to encourage more slugs into the garden
