LG - how lovely to be able to wear DMs and not look like a workman - Ive always been too sturdy to manage it - Wonky takes after the other side of the family and is slim and svelte. I remember one of her friends who was even more petite than Wonky, wearing DMs and a tulle ballet skirt for the sixth form ball - she looked amazing.

Vanessa - Bath is lovely and yes, usually milder and less windy than here in East Anglia where it's a bit more like the weather in Holland - I have cousins living in Bath and enjoy visiting - be happy in your new home

Hello Vanessa and welcome to the UK and to the forum


The UK climate varies quite a bit depending on whereabouts you are - here in East Anglia I'd prune Compassion in late Feb, early March - depending on the weather.  If Spring is early I'd prune mid Feb.  I'd also give it a good feed of Fish, Blood and Bone at the same time to perk it up and give it some energy.

I'm tending towards the crocosmia theory ... but whatever it is time will tell ... I'd leave until spring has sprung and then do some clearing away of the dead top growth and see what happens - there may well be some treasures there

The house is chilly - I suppose the heating was off for 36 hours and it cooled down - we've turned the thermostat up a notch and the rads too. 


Now I have some paperwork and banking to do ......... when I've drunk this coffee .............


Fidget re litter on beaches etc - good for you - we have been known to do the same and a Cornish friend does a regular litter pick on her local beaches - I've also picked up and handed back dropped litter when I've seen it happen, with a polite smile and 'I think you dropped this'
