How do I get rid of the white powder please?

You won't get rid of it now - the plants will start to go over very soon as the weather cools and that'll be it until next year.

The plant I'm thinking of had swollen glaucous succulent/cacti type branching stems and from time to time it'd put out the little leaves.  Definitely not hardy.  

Early plants appearing?

I usually find grape hyacinth leaves appearing in the autumn - they seem to flower in the spring perfectly normally.

Well, I found something else to do - our bedroom has had a thorough dust, polish, hoover etc, and the big wardrobe has had a sort out ... it was worth it ... my lovely and almost brand new coat had been shoved to the back a couple of years ago as it was too tight - I'd been feeling a bit optimistic when I bought it .... 

Yay!!!  It fits with room to spare!!!  

And the necklace and wrap I treated myself to and then lost and thought I must have dropped the bag in the multi-storey car park ... I found that bag inside another one which had been put away 'cos it was a nice bag and I thought it might come in useful some time 

Maybe I should do h*wk more often

I recognise the second plant - there was a huge one at my children's primary school and lots of the children (mine included) brought home rooted cuttings from time to time - can't for the life of me remember what it was called though   (although the word 'candle' keeps coming to mind)

Am I right in thinking those wonderful pink minarets are flowering spikes?  Hope the owner has done some propagating.

Wonky Womble is joining the ranks of those who get paid (albeit not a fortune) for doing what they love.

Looking forward to progress reports
