That's spring for you

We've got snow at the moment, proper snow, big flakes - looks like a Christmas card out there

Hello folks- I'm back  Ma happily introducing me to everyone as her sister, talking about 'our' father who has died and her mother who she hasn't seen for a long while, and her husband (meaning Bro) who works so hard. I took her a basket of trailing campanulas for her room and a box of chocs for Mother's Day - she thanked the carer for them

After the visit I popped down to the harbour and bought 3+lb of fresh line-caught cod (caught last night) for £10 - we'll have some for supper, the rest is in the freezer.

The journey home took longer than usual as we were stuck in a long queue then diverted due to a bad crash at Hales - a car and a lorry - there's a service station and a junction on a bend on the brow of a hill on a fast bit of road - presumably someone didn't see that another vehicle was turning off. Four people injured but according to the local news website I don't think anyone was killed. There were several ambulances and fire engines as well as the Norfolk air ambulance which had landed in a field - I couldn't see whether it was Prince William in the cockpit.

The sun was shining at Southwold, but the last part of the journey home was in heavy sleet.

Good morning, chilly but at least the predicted snow failed to arrive,.........

It's OK Lily P - it hasn't gone missing - we've got it   almost a white-out here ate the moment

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

Mmmmmmmmm it looks gorgeous, but this http://www.perennials.com/plants/lysimachia-atropurpurea-beaujolais.html says  'biennial or short lived perennial'. 

That's a bit pricey for something that's not going to last and like Lyn, just one plant wouldn't make much impact in the bed we're going to create. 

Think I'd rather order seeds.

Verdun - sorry to hear that Spike is showing the years - have you heard of 'Joint Aid' for dogs - a friend who has an elderly Border Collie was amazed at the difference after using it for three months

Hi Melspad   I think this may well be the problem you've read about. https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=477

Farmers in the UK cannot and do not use 'growth hormones' on their cattle - it would be highly illegal as the practice is banned within the EU.  Some info here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beef_hormone_controversy

It is however allowed in the USA.

Morning the rest of you

Not sure if Wonky's going to get the chance to post this morning, but I'm sure she won't mind me letting you know that life is much more peaceful now as most of the people living above have moved on and the couple that remain are pleasant and quiet. 

Enjoy the hairdo LilyP
