Tracey, we're only bonkers when the weather won't let us garden - we're too tired the rest of the year

Looks like a camellia to me as well.  I was in London at the weekend and saw several camellias blooming near the Tower

A few minutes ago I went into the garage for some onions, when I came out I had a peacock butterfly on my apron, I popped him/her back in a quiet corner before he woke up in the warmth of the kitchen.   Lovely to see it

I believe that an important part of the trick is to keep the roots dry when it's cold 

Today I feel so happy....

It was really interesting to learn so much about the haggis, thank you.

My grandparents were Scottish so I have eaten haggis but if I'd known how cute they were I wouldn't have.

I wonder why they weren't featured on Winter Watch!

I think you should email them and ask Pam

Neither sorry Dove, a bit of chutney or pickle perhaps or nice cakes/biscuits for afterwards? I wish I did sell Whisky as long as it was nice malt

... We need some wild haggi down in Cornwall - they might scare off some of the Emmets!


Pentillie, go to Chysauster just before dawn on Midsummer's morn .... the haggis come out to play with the piskies

Actually no, haggis is one thing I don't sell, but I do sell lots of nice things that would go with the haggis

Whisky   or 'neeps ?
