Thank you Pat - I used to love haymaking when we had the smallholding - as long as the weather held - we were lucky most years!    We had a much smaller acreage  and had individual pens for the horses and goats, so we made the old fashioned smaller bales - much easier for us to handle.

The sound of next door's windscreen being scraped - I'm so glad I've retired - just over two years ago I'd have been out there doing that ...

Also think the roads are slippery - we're not far from a main road and the big hospital, and I've heard the sirens of emergency vehicles several times already this morning -  thoughts with everyone heading to the salt mines today ((hugs))  take lots of care.

saffron crocus failing?

I like the flavour of saffron in Middle Eastern dishes - there's nothing else like it. 

But you have to buy good quality saffron, and then soak it to extract the flavour.  It is a infrequent and expensive treat

Good morning all   G'day Pat   Good news about the power

Everything is white and sparkly out in the front garden - the first frost of the year - Hosta timed his holiday just right!

The temperature in the back garden is   -0.2C  

Strictly is back!

I think Jamelia has been badly served by her corsetiere - she needs much more support 'up front' - I think the rather 'unfettered bounce' is a real problem for her when she moves quickly.

Sprout harvesting

Not the big tough outside leaves but the more tender clump right at the top, a bit like a very loose-leaved cabbage.

Those big ones aren't winter hardy outside.  They're really houseplants.

The ones that are hardy are the little ones, e.g. Cyclamen hederafolium and Cyclamen coum
