...Possum and I have been for a bike ride this morning.  Hard work now I've discovered/remembered how to work the 21 gears!  Grew up decades ago with 3 gears and not convinced 21 are an improvement.  ...



 Totally agree Obs ... I haven't found that they make the hills any easier ... and this bit of Norfolk is NOT FLAT

Victoria Plum - disease?

Aghast at the idea of wasting plums I googled and discovered Pickled Green Plums ... http://family-friends-food.com/pickled-green-plums-middle-eastern-springtime-treat/ 


I've never tried it but if your unripe plums are ok inside I'd have a go at it if I were you ... and then let us know what you think ... sounds delicious to me ... I've not got a plum tree

NannyB.  Every cloud has a silver lining ... Better than them arriving and then the throwing up beginning ... You would have some clearing up to be done then

Dontcha just love weekends when lonely folks with no friends stay up late drinking on their own and advertise their inanity on forums ... looks like a "wolf in sheep's clothing", annoyed by my refusal to be baited, is trying to wind me up via PM.  I never waste my time responding to rubbish.  Unlike some I have a life to live

Oh 'eck!  I'd better get up and get out there then .... There's some cutting back and tidying to do ... Not to mention fruit bushes in need of attention ... But I need a second coffee ...

As has been said, cutting hard back once a year keeps it under control and won't kill it.

Good morning all   It looks a lovely day to come ...  a bright blue sky with white fluffies ... The newspaper man has delivered in this road and the neighbours carer has arrived  ... now all is quiet again apart from the cooing and clattering of wings from the wood pigeons  ...


i hope Hosta's bank is still in place ...
