Or dig them up before the frosts come, pot them up and keep them indoors on a windowsill or in a frost free greenhouse through the winter and plant them put again when the risk of frost has passed.

33.4C in the shade here this afternoon and still 22C here now  I've had the leaky hose on the Shady Bank and the Wilderness for an hour this evening and the sprinkler on the veg patch and the sunny bed. 


We ate supper on the terrace and then stayed out there and played chess. 


Its been a lovely day

Hello, I'm back - hair cut done and don't need new glasses and no signs of glaucoma or mac. deg or any of that stuff I have to keep an eye open for 


I managed to buy myself a new outfit too - didn't intend to, was only looking - must have had a sticky label 


Sorry to hear Pdoc's still poorly - positive vibes and lots of ((hugs)) to him and Mrs Pdoc. 


Sorry too to hear David K has gone - the photo thing is frustrating - having bought a good camera, it's annoying that I can only post from my phone at the moment, but I know they're doing their best to sort it out.  As I think has been mentioned before, Daniel is only a Demi-God - there are bigger and more important Gods up there on the Olympus that is Immediate Media Mountain who make big decisions and hold the purse strings - he and Nora do their best for us - as gardeners we should understand the importance of being patient.

Chicky    it's going to remind us of Cornwall ... OH is going to be allowed an aeonium nigra  and we'll try to create a feeling of that seaside intensity of light and warmth    ... with a twist ... but that's all you're getting for now ... some of it may take some time to achieve ... 


Now I have a bus to catch ........ SYL folks
