I've just arranged for son to pick me up in an hour or so and cart me off to Suffolk for a couple of days so you lot will just have to manage without me somehow 

Can you remind OH to feed Hefty and water the runner beans and squash if it stays dry?

Like the new hairdo Lily

Just heard from Bro - Pa is indeed safe and sound but very tired following a disturbed night.  He will visit later in the day.

I think that looks like the work of the Leaf cutter bee - what do other people think?

I suppose one way to find out would be to watch - if it happens during daylight it's the bee - vineweevils do their damage under the cover of darkness

No Bekkie - it's wonderful but it needs to be given it's head and grown into a tree or up and over a huge wall or bank, it throws up lots of long canes from the base, wonderful if you've got a big space for it to cover but unless you've got the same sort of space as a National Trust garden I wouldn't consider it.  And it only flowers the once, so it takes up a huge space for a once in a year performance (although the hips are lovely too).

Have a look at this one http://www.classicroses.co.uk/products/roses/francis-elester/  it's lovely, and in my experience not quite as pink as the picture.

Can you grow a tree in a pot?
