Do you know what variety of sweetcorn it was you grew Pam?

I've always had to make at least four Chicky (Good morning by the way )

One for us, one for MIL, one for Wonky and one to raffle at work for Children in Need. 

I still made four last year even though as I wasn't at work we didn't raffle one - so the spare is still sitting in the fridge  - we'll have that one this year - don't know whether MIL will need one this year as she may be away - I expect Wonky will still want one

Hi Pat  

I've just been watching the most beautiful sunrise - a pinky/golden glow over the whole sky - it makes me think of Pa who often had difficult nights in his last few years; he'd get the staff to get him out of bed early and sit him in his reclining chair facing the window in his room so that he could watch the sun coming up over the sea    If there'd been a good sunrise he'd always tell me about it when I visited

Shoots already!

No, the tulips will be just fine outside in the pots - that's where mine are - they need the cold weather

I go my coffee, but I haven't even looked outside yet today - somehow I feels it's not going to be a gardening day out there .............

Dunno 'bout the corn, but that's a nifty pastry board.  I want one!

Harts of Stur do a very similar one

Not all the kernels have been pollinated, so that's part of the problem.  And I think that maybe they've been left on the plant too long and they're over ripe

I've just been through my cds and played some of the Vaughan Williams - it's his Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis 

Happy now
