Wonky loves Christmas Pud.  We had one in our fridge left over from last year - I took it to her yesterday

Morning all. -4°, the world is white here, frost not snow. Is it snow where you are Dove? ...

Yes, snow!  Loads of squealing and giggling children somewhere nearby - they've obviously been sent outside to make the most of it before it thaws. 

KEF   Google the make and model of your machine and 'threading' - there'll be a Utube video or diagram or something somewhere on the internet .

Good morning DD

This is the first year in ages that I won't be making puddings today (Stir Up Sunday) - we have some left from last year.  We also have some mincemeat left.  We were at MIL's last year and didn't eat a lot at home.

Our next door neighbour at the last house had a pyracantha hedge - full of birds all the time - one year it was visited by a flock of waxwings who spent several hours stripping it of berries.  We watched from our bedroom window just a few feet away.  A wonderful hedge. 

However, do keep on top of the trimming of it if it's near a footpath - it's very spiny and squeezing past with a bicycle on your way to work in the morning can be a painful process

Hmm, thanks folks - lots to consider here - thank goodness there's lots to do in that area before we get around to planting.

The holly pollination query was because I'm considering a holly to give some height in the corner where we've lost the ash - however there are lots of other hollies around, including lots of wild English holly in the nearby woods - neighbours with holly in their gardens seem to get plenty of berries so it was just my curiosity rather than a burning need for a pollinator.
