That's kind of you Steve - much appreciated

Strictly is back!

Helen's eyes are really wide apart, and  whoever is doing her makeup is accentuating that with highlighter rather than using some clever shading. 

I think Anita was absolutely amazing last night - outstandingly good.

Gardening?  It's almost pitch dark outside and it's beginning to sleet again - not really gardening weather - not for us Fair Weather Gardeners  

Tree Nursery bankrupt - online auction

Posted: 22/11/2015 at 13:46

I don't know if anyone has any trees/hedging to buy and I don't know what quantities are going to be offered in the online auction, but I thought I'd flag this up

Leaves

Posted: 22/11/2015 at 12:01

I bag our leaves up in black bin bags, tie the tops, make some holes in the bottom with a gardening knife and stack them in a corner out of the way.  They usually turn into lovely leaf-mould in about 12 months - sometimes I add them in layers to the compost heap when they've partially rotted down, usually after about 6 months.

I love using a treadle machine - very satisfying sounds

HELLO FORKERS!

That would've been a huge investment back in those days Hosta!  Is it a treadle one?  I used to use my granny's treadle machine - wonder what Ma did with it
