Morning Wonky   Take care on the slippy pavements!!! 

Isn't it reassuring to know your uncle isn't going to miss out on the snow

Hope the neighbours' friends have got plenty of room for them

Oooh, lots of you snuck in there behind me - that's 'cos I went and made another coffee before I hit submit

Just a sprinkling of white still on the grass and the car roofs Fairy

Good morning/G'day all

Pat, how nice that Bro won't miss out on the snow

The thermometer is showing a minimum of 1.1C last night, but the sprinkling of snow that fell last night is frozen solid on the roof of the mini-greenhouse.  I've just been out to top up the bird feeders and put some oats out for the blackbirds, and everything is thawing and dripping now - but the pavements look as if they're going to be slippy in patches for a while so doubtless the roads are the same.

Take care out there folks!

It's too late for lunch Fairy, all washed up and put away - but in a couple of hours we'll be having a New England Boiled Dinner - boiled bacon joint with carrots, leeks, potatoes and cabbage with parsley sauce - a big pot is simmering on the hob - plenty for all comers 

Plant food etc - opinions & recommendations please

Apparently my grandfather would hover by his garden gate 'guarding the deposit' until one of his children came home from school - they were sent out with bucket and shovel 

When I drive through the countryside and see a stack of plastic sacks and the sign Pony Poo 50p per bag my car screeches to a halt and I leap out and put a couple of bags in the boot

Another vote here for Graham Thomas - a beautiful highly scented creamy-yellow honeysuckle that carries on flowering into late autumn in this garden

Oh yes, barrow loads of home made compost is dug into the veg patch every spring, and more barrow loads used for mulch on the borders every autumn - and manure of one sort or another is an ingredient in every batch of my compost
