 One like this one - based on Dan Lepard's Stone Fruit Yoghurt Cake, made with nectarines with the addition of raspberries from the garden - it's one of our favourites

Cake cooling next to the pie, the last remnants of the washing are drying, the house is clean and tidy and the ir*ning is all done - my feet are up and the kettle is on - OH will be home soon and we'll have a cuppa while we wait for our friend to arrive

Give this place a ring http://www.crown-nursery.co.uk/products/mature-trees-and-shrubs/ They supply mature trees for landscaping projects etc.  Don't know whether they do Norway Spruce or similar, but if they don't they may know someone who does.

Good luck 

Foxglove ?

They'll do it themselves, but you may find they spread themselves a bit thickly, so when the seedpods are dry and beginning to open I cut the spike off and swish it around the beds and borders where I want more foxgloves.

Sorry, you'll have to make do with a cold sausage sarnie - Picnic Pie is for the foodies' picnic on Sunday - I've just got to trust that it's cooked through and doesn't have a soggy bottom

Yvie  - I don't think it was so much that people were taken in - think it was more that he needed friends but didn't know how to be one 

Rain just began to spit so I've got the washing in - it's still a bit damp so I'll drape it upstairs in the third bedroom which room we use as an office.

The pie is cooked and is cooling.  When I've draped the washing I'll make the cake ....

Plastic boxes to overwinter?

Are talking about pelargonium-type geraniums?  If so, I'd take them indoors onto windowsills.

I've flagged up the multiple posts to the Mods - they're the only ones that can do anything.  Hope we can all reply on one thread, otherwise there's a potential for chaos!
