Good morning to the early risers and the jet lagged

Hope everyone over there in the eastern US has their supplies in and their hatches battened!

And, after long contemplation and perusal of websites and books and magazine articles I've chosen my birthday snowdrops and OH has ordered them  They'll be delivered from February onwards

I've chosen a mix of nivalis, flore pleno, atkinsii and S. Arnott

It's obviously the day for bosom conversations - just back from having a mammogram

getting rid of weeds from the garden

The only way to get rid of couch grass other than to put it in the bin and get the council to take it away, is to dry it out and burn it - I know - I've tried them all

To some the ring may be creepy, others will be fine with it - the Victorian fashion of mourning brooches with locks of hair, or watch chains made of the hair of a loved one seem odd to us now, but were considered perfectly normal then.  If that's what your niece wants to do then she should do it - we all handle things differently

My friend's ashes were fired over the village in a firework rocket - now every time anyone gets dust in their eye or a stone in their shoe they think of him

christmas tree

If you cut the top out it won't be a Christmas tree shape any more - it'll look like a bit of hedge

It should be potted in a large pot in soil-based John Innes compost - I'd use No. 3 with some added grit. 

Keep it in a sheltered spot where it gets some sun and some shade, and turn it around by 90 degrees each week so that it gets even light and grows in a uniform shape.
