Hello Forkers December

G'day Pat   Hello the rest of you and good to see you Thankthecat   Sorry to hear about the blues ... seem to strike quite a few people this time of year ... I'd try the SAD light if I were you ... what've you got to lose?  I know several people who find them helpful, and if you don't you can always sell it on Ebay   It's good to be busy tho' ... being self employed can be precarious ... 


Going to listen to R4 now, Melvin Bragg is talking about Harriet Martineau - one of Norwich's famous daughters of the first half of the 19C commemorated in many place names in the city - quite an amazing woman for those times ... she'd be seen as a really high achiever even nowadays.

Afraid Ipswich has had its bad times and it's good ones. Hopefully the police will soon deal with the current situation. It comes as Wonky says with a lack of jobs, plus easy travel from London and to the continent. A lot of smuggling, of all sorts. Always has been.


Meanwhile I know that Wonky and her lovely hub and their friends are sensible and keep themselves and each other safe. 


Christchuch Mansion, home of Cardinal Wolseys family, is really worth seeing, and Pin Mill not too far away is lovely.

Lovely Fairy   We used to get them on the feeders at work (we were surrounded my mixed conifer and oak woodland).  I loved to see them - they became really regular once they knew the sunflower hearts would always be there

Oooh Liri, what an exciting prospect ... let us know what's going to be planted 

Viburnum flower buds not opening

Don't remove any buds - they'll come out in phases, a few at a time through the winter.


Enjoy - it's one of my absolute favourites

It'll open eventually - mine flowers throughout the winter during milder spells.


However, I am a bit worried about yours being in a pot - they grow into large shrubs and it'll need a large container to match, and John Innes No 3 loam-based compost, not multi-purpose.  

Good advice does not come quick
