Good morning all  


Mme President eh? They must know that saying, if you want a job done well give it to a busy woman!  Seriously Dd, they must think a lot of you 


There's a sharp frost out there this morning. If it wasn't a Saturday there would be the sound of windscreens being scraped by now. 


Looks like Hostas escaping to the sun just in time!

My understanding is that  in some parts of rural India there is a fair amount of resistance to using toilets. It's a change from a centuries old way of doing things which is considered by some to be much more hygienic than using a toilet. 


I remember, back in the late 1950s, our local village postmistress telling us very proudly that they were having a bathroom installed in their pretty thatched cottage.  


She then added that she was having a flush w.c. installed in the shed that had housed the privy in the garden.  


Ma asked why she wasn't having the toilet in the bathroom?


Mrs E looked appalled and said, "I'm not having people doing that in my house!" 


And she never did - not until she died and her daughter took over the Post Office in the 1980s was there an indoor toilet at the village post office.

If you sow them now I think they need a heated greenhouse - I'm going to sow mine Feb/March.

I wouldn't disturb them now - you may well lose the flowers - I'd leave it after they've bloomed and the leaves are beginning to change colour and die down.  That's the perfect time to move them.

Well at least there's a little something that won't get sunburned

Sunlight can damage your skin even if it's overcast Hosta - but I know you don't like to wear sunscreen (or much else) when you're on holiday. 


Looking forward to posts from 'under the parasol'

When are you setting off Hosta?  Are you taking a camera so you can make us jealous when you get back?
