Verdun ((hugs)) glad you and mum had a lovely time - a tot of sherry and some music - makes us all feel a bit more human again, even when times are rough.  Thinking of you both.

I visited my two today.  They'd had a visit from carol singers and handbellringers last night and apparently Ma sang along for over an hour and was on fine form.  She didn't remember a thing about it today, but the good mood had carried over and she was happy today.  Pa had remembered all about it.  Today was a very different visit to the last one thank goodness

Christmas of yesteryear

Blssom   I remember hot water bottles freezing in my bed - and beautiful ferny frozen patterns on the inside of our bedroom windows - they don't know what they're missing nowadays

Is it too late to cut hedges?

I think the Natural England advice refers to native mixed hedgerows

Good luck with yours

You should've been here in East Anglia - we've had humpbacks swimming up and down the coast for the past couple of years
