a1154 was thinking about using the containers for a cutting garden to site  near his kitchen door  - what about herbs?  You could have a bay tree in one, a prostrate rosemary trailing over the edge of the other, and some sage, thyme, oregano and other herbs - done with thought it could look really good

Good morning all

Today is the day I go to have Christmas lunch with my former colleagues - they didn't invite me last year ... what do they want?

While I was at France I took a cutting,it's rooted but what is it?

Apparently, the village where I grew up used to get water from the moat around our farmhouse - the same moat that the drains from the farmhouse ran into

Then, during WW2 one of Hitler's planes dumped some bombs on the fields as it was damaged and being chased back towards the North Sea - one of those bombs made a crater that filled with water from an underground stream and that water was piped into the village - how the villagers blessed that German bomber

Let's hasten the winter! What are you looking forward to flowering in spring?

I'm really looking forward to seeing my new native daffodils (Narcissus pseudonarcissus)  and the Rip van Winkle daffodils that I planted in September - they always remind me of the vegetable garden at the farm where I grew up.
