Have a lovely day with littlest Chicklet

There's a tiny patch of blue sky up there - but it's not going to be a gardening day - no way - and the house is all ship shape and Bristol fashion, so think I'll go and visit Wonky

Can You Suggest a Front Garden Tree or Bush

Ah, thanks Nut - got it!  It might be useful in the shrubby bit of the new area - hedgehog cover and all that

Not really a fan of Andrew Neil but his attack on IS last night was impressive.  

Whatever it costs, whatever protocols are infringed, we need to unite with Russia, Iran, everybody, to send in troops and destroy IS now.   i don't think we have seen anything yet to compare with what they will do

I've been saying for years that the west should have backed Russia in sorting out the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan back in the 80s, but no - what did we do?  We armed the Mujahadeen against Russia, because of course the Soviets were the enemy weren't they? Duh! Talk about an own goal - the Mujahadeen turned into Al Qaeda using the arms we'd supplied.

I don't know R. laurifolium Jo, so I've googled - sounds lovely - yet another possible planting for the area freed up by felling the tree yesterday.  I've got R. odoratum over in the Wilderness behind the pond, but as yet it's only a toddler.

I think you're  definintely right about the garden soil - I don't think they like gritty composts

MPC makes them too comfy.
