Christmas lights in the garden

So pretty BL  

A local GC has large 'tree sized' ones like that lining their driveway at this time of year - very effective

I'll be driving home in the dark this evening after visiting a friend - I wonder how many illuminated gardens I'l see now that Advent has started

How's the job going by the way - it sounds as if you've been very busy.

Puzzled.  Mike, are you saying that there is scientific evidence that acorns 'planted' by jays and squirrels grow into the best trees, and is this because they select the biggest and best acorns?

Does this evidence record all acorns planted by the birds/animals, or only the ones that germinated and grew?

Do humans not 'select'  the acorns that they plant? 

Or have I misunderstood your point?

Mine is to keep better records - I've got a gardening notebook, so why don't I write things down immediately rather than stick labels and seedpackets in a box on the bookcase to write down later .... it hardly ever happens


Posted: 01/12/2014 at 06:35

Good morning KEF - sorry, no tea brewed here yet - that doesn't happen until OH is awake and he's not working today so still in the Land of Nod, but I'll put the kettle on for you

9pm, that's when my tired and sleepy happens too
