I was thinking of a big dark orangey/brown blowsy floppy oriental poppy a friend (now moved) used to grow - I'm sure the leaves looked like the pic ... but I may well be wrong

I do hope Hosta's had a good night's sleep - I also hope that he's set his alarm for 8 and is awake now   Sleeping late in the morning might cause problems tonight! 

Rye pancakes, odd results, and cheap pan

It was a natural fermentation.  Rye flour is often used as an ingredient in sour-dough starters as it has more natural soluble sugars than wheat flour which aid fermentation.

It sounds as if you ended up with a type of Blini.

Many of the keen cooks I know swear by these pans - http://www.greenpan.co.uk/uk/mission-7947.htm

Good morning all  G'day Pat

Think it's about 7C out there at the moment - or that's what my iPhone tells me - it's too wet to go out there in my jimjams.

Collapsed on the sofa having eaten roast beef, yorkies etc  - there will be banana splits later, but we're too full to even think about them for a while.

Hope everyone has a good night's sleep tonight

A Gardener's Hands

Posted: 21/02/2016 at 16:13

At this time of year I have unbroken fingernails and reasonable looking hands, but very soon I'll have broken nails and chapped and sore hands and they'll remain like that until the winter has set in again

I wear cotton gardening gloves for as many jobs as possible, but they're not comfortable or practical for every task.

I've tried all sorts of hand creams to help my hands - which do you find works best on a gardener's hands?

Not sure what sort of creatures you're talking about.  Can you post a photo or a better description?

Most of the invertebrates in the garden make a useful contribution to the eco-system and are friends to the gardener.

I think that camellia is absolutely gorgeous Wonky  - that gorgeous central boss of golden stamens against the delicate creamy silk petals - like a wonderful embroidery.

Love it - and a complete bargain
