Good morning all   G'day Pat  

Talk of the bushfires on the news this morning ... hope things improve soon.

Frost on cars this morning, but not in the back garden - lowest temp overnight 1.6C and holding.  Brrrrrrr!  OH set off for work on his bike about 20 minutes ago under a brilliantly clear sky full of stars - beautiful

Hello folks - back from haircut and shopping expedition.  Then Toad in the Hole for supper, now all washed up and on the sofa. 

Edd, no problems re Windows 10 so far

Root Trainers

It's not that some plants need bigger roots - it's that some plants' roots go deeper, whereas some are shallow rooted.

Wonky ((hugs))

Back garden (my lovely free-draining loam) has areas of standing water several inches deep, including the herb garden  and the pond is overflowing.

Heading into the city in a bit for a haircut - she won't need to wash it first at this rate ...

Root Trainers

I find them useful for starting off sweet peas and runner beans both of which like to make deep roots  - the root trainers mean the roots don't get so damaged when planting out.

Morning Clari - think you'll need a 20 minute nap after lunch

I think re floods and gardening help - there's very little that can be done at the moment - also as far as I'm aware the floods aren't long term standing water killing plants as was the case in the Somerset levels - short term floods shouldn't do too much damage to plants - its the washing away of gardens/structures etc rivers gouging out the banks that's causing big damage and I'm not sure what we can do about that from here   Perhaps when spring arrives there'll be something we can do ...

Has anyone noticed how we always get rotten weather when Hosta's away on his holidays?  I think it's cause and effect - he should stay home more then we'd have good weather
