Tree advice

Poplars grow into huge trees - up to 30 metres tall - and they're fast growing.  I wouldn't be keen on a row of them at the end of my garden.

I suspect that James may be thinking of reinventing the wheel

Thought so.

I love January   Christmas leftovers and pickles, snowdrops, aconites and hazel catkins dancing in the breeze, walks in the crunchy snow with our breath steaming up our faces then home to a lovely hot meal ............ so many lovely things about January ... especially MY BIRTHDAY!!!

Good morning all and G'day Pat

Being a country girl I was used to occasional power outages in bad weather, and they sometimes occurred when we lived in the city centre too, but since we've lived here we've not experienced one at all (fingers crossed).  I wonder if things are better maintained because we're near to the big hospital or is it just good luck

It's raining here this morning - I wasn't expecting that - I thought they'd been telling us we're in the middle of a dry spell, or have I mis-remembered   I've just checked the forecast and the fine weekend I was expecting seems to have disappeared too

Surprise surprise this time every year the Express spreads doom and gloom about the forthcoming winter. 

Wrap up warmer, turn on the heating, wear sensible shoes, make comforting and nourishing hot meals, put a thicker duvet on, insulate your greenhouse.

It might be colder than average, it might be a bit milder - prepare for the worst and hope for the best - that's my mantra and it's not failed me yet
