Hello all - I'm back - more hair on the salon floor than there is left on my head  
A bit of light shopping done too - and my Boots points have been spent on my favourite perfume 

Two herrings from a fish stall on the market for supper, they'll be wrapped in streaky bacon, then baked and eaten with jacket potatoes and fennel and orange salad and celeriac remoulade. 

Clari - ask your OH if he's read Aristophanes' Lysistrata ........ if he hasn't tell him you'll get him one for Christmas

Good morning all  Thanks for doing the honours Fidget 

A pinch and punch and white rabbits etc. 

Clari (( hugs)) keep warm 

Chicky - the anxiety never goes, no matter how good a driver they are, you just learn to hide it better 

Not quite so cold out there this morning. Nevertheless I shall be wearing my big winter coat when I catch the bus into the city this morning.

Clari - put the chickens where you can see them from the kitchen window if at all possible

I agree - leave it alone - those stems will grow longer in the spring and they'll attach themselves next year 

You planted it in the autumn when it was getting ready to shut down for the winter.  Not the time of year when it would grow those adventitious roots to cling onto the support with.

Can you suspend a small tree from the ceiling? 

Hydrangea with Purple Leaves - Help!

Panic not!    The leaves are changing colour for the autumn - then they'll fall off.  Leave it alone and don't prune it.  Leave any dead flower heads on until the spring when the new leaf buds begin to swell, then cut the faded flower heads off to the first set of healthy looking buds.

It'll all be fine.
