Hello Forkers December

Good morning folks   I tried to get on here earlier, but the site kept dropping out ... I was on my phone ... now I've got OH's laptop up and running

Pp, consider an Alder Carr ... lots around boggy bits of East Anglia ... one of my favourite forms of woodland - especially when the alder is coppiced  

Clari ((hugs)) 

Hosta - have a safe journey and a wonderful holiday ((hugs))

Still quite foggy here, but not as bad as it has been ... we're off to MIL's tomorrow so apart from a bit of shopping and washing I'm going to have a lazy day.

I'm sure I've read somewhere that alder was grown in the wetlands of Holland and the wood was used to make clogs.

Esio Trot a Roald Dahl story tomorrow BBC2 at 6.30pm  with superb performances by Judi Dench and Dustin Hoffman.  An absolutely glorious film

See original post

 Just watched it for the umpteenth time .......... as you say, absolutely glorious

Dustin Hoffman was also superb yesterday with Vanessa Redgrave in Agatha

Pp - if you've got boggy soil have you thought of growing black alder - it loves having it's toes in the wet.

I'd miss the birds too ... and the first snowdrops and hazel catkins

Anyone without something urgent to do this evening, put BBC 2 on at 6.30 - the adorable Dustin Hoffman and Dame Judy in Esio Trott (Roald Dahl).  If you've not seen it you must .......... it's just wonderful .......... it warms the cockles

Fruit flies

They like rotting onions at the bottom of the veg rack too. 

Or could they be fungus gnats from a pot plant?
