Anybody else having Outlook problems today?

Hurrumph - yesterday the vacuum blew up and I had to get a new one.  Today I went to Homebase and spent £17 on a tin of wood stain for windowsills - when I got home I got out of the car and dropped it and the lid came off and it ran down the road!  Lovely builder cleared it all up - I will go and buy another tin over the weekend

The builders and I have finished off the big pot of pea and ham soup and they've had lots of hot buttered toast as well - just the thing for this chilly weather, especially when they're having to work in the hallway with the front door wide open. 

Glad to hear new doggies are making themselves at home

I might be able to make room for some more clematis ..... I might .......

I think Count Arthur Strong's use of language has infected me - I have accidentally just invented a new word - chaord - OH understood what I meant - organised chaos - that describes this house at the moment!

What flowers in February?

Posted: 05/02/2015 at 15:21

In Victorian times snowdrops were often used to signify mourning - as well as being planted in churchyards, brooches with enamelled pictures of snowdrops on were worn to remember loved ones.  I think the snowdrop is a beautiful flower to use to remember someone as it appears just at the turn of the winter and fills us with hope.

My loved ones know that when I am gone they are to plant snowdrops to remember me. 

I've always loved them as they flower around my birthday time.

Thanks Dovefromabove is it top dressing they are talking about and if so will general purpose compost be ok.

Yes it will be ok - well rotted farmyard manure would be better
