And give the bin a sharp rap with a stout stick every time you go past - they really don't like that

........  I'll be delivered to Waitrose tomorrow. 

So excited.

That'll make a change for you Hosta


But seriously, you'll enjoy it - a good camera makes so much difference - I also did a day workshop in digital photography, taking my own camera along to learn some of the things it could do if I knew  which buttons to press ...

Honey Fungus: What To Grow?

Posted: 03/11/2015 at 07:22

It depends what you want to plant there Sam.  I wouldn't plant sycamores there again if that's what you're thinking of.  You need to find something you like that is resistant to the honey fungus.

There's a list here showing those most susceptible and those that show good resistance

Good morning all G'day Pat

Low cloud here this morning, but no fog that I can see

Hosta, get that backside seen to pronto!!!

Today's main task will be watching the second half of Autumnwatch - I nodded off

And I didn't see Nigella lick her fingers - must be a first!!! or was I half asleep then too?

Don't forget Autumnwatch tonight at 9pm,

And Nigella before that, for those who like watching someone sucking her fingers

She writes brilliantly about food - just wish she wasn't so 'self aware' in front of the camera ....... maybe she'll be better now she's escaped the clutches of that awful man

Verdun - we went past a place called "Verdun House" today - in the middle of foggy Fenland!!!

Hope your neice is improving

On a vine that young you need to reduce the number of bunches you allow it to grow to one per branch, as well as thin the grapes.

Hello folks - we're home

Some fog on the Fenland part of the journey, but dear Lola has brilliant fog lights  so as long as we took it steadily we were ok.  Most people were driving well, apart from an idiot in a black Audi with a number plate 'adjusted' to read JERK U !!!  At least he was warning everyone that he was a complete ****er!!!

Fifty tulip bulbs arrived while we were away so as soon as the weather improves this week I'll be planting some of them in the front garden amongst the wallflowers - the rest are for Wonky.  Glad she and her lovely hub had a good weekend with their friends

Hope all the sick and injured had a good weekend and are well on the road to recovery!

OH has unloaded the car and now the house is warming up and a takeaway has been ordered and is on its way

Hosta, thank goodness you did'nt hurt you knee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Right folks - we're off, back Monday, have a great weekend ((hugs to all))
