Hello folks - back from visiting Ma - she is very happy (fluttering her eyelashes at the male carer who took her for a push around the town this morning). Talking complete bunkum - but very happy. A bag of fruit pastilles for her handbag made life even better
Wet and miserable here now 8.9C at the moment. The sun is low in the west and as supper is prepped I'm on the sofa with you lot, my knitting and Roger Federer (might as well try to pick up a few tips ).
I know I said I don't like the heat Hosta, but have you got room for a middle-sized one in your suitcase? Perhaps I could learn to like it
On the other hand, I've just noticed Hellebore orientalis Mrs Betty Ranicar has buds just beginning to burst open, and a Christmas Rose type hellebore in the front garden is in full bloom; Clematis cirrhosa 'Freckles' is covered with flowers as is Viburnum Bodnantense Charles Lamont. Just think of all the things I'd miss if I wasn't here in the winter
