Any chance of a photo please? It would be good if you had one of it with leaves and one of it now ... 

What should I do with the frog under my floor?

Yes, leave her alone - she's found a place that she considers suitable to spend the winter - or at least the current cold snap.  I think it's a female - I remember reading somewhere that it's the males that spend the winter in the mud at the bottom of the ponds, and the females that find sheltered spots 'on dry land'.  I suggest that Esmeralda is a suitable name 

Frozen containers :-/

Quite often it's not the freezing that damages plants ... it's rapid thawing.  Leave your roses alone for the time being.  When the current cold snap passes you might like to bubble wrap the pots to protect the pots - don't wrap them until the compost has thawed or you will be keeping the cold in, not out.

Westminster Abbey is largely self funding. It's status as a Royal Peculier simply means that it is not under a bishops control but is within the jurisdiction of the monarch. its main source of funding is from the visitors admission fees and money they spend there.

Oooooh! We haven't written ours yet - better get started ...

the other job I need to get on with is to give all the silver a good polish. Most of it stays in the sideboard except at Christmas - it looks lovely reflecting the Christmas lights. 

Oh and I must make jam from most of the raspberries in the freezer to free up some space to freeze Christmas stuff. 

Christmas decorations

Posted: 30/11/2016 at 08:24

My sons birthday is on the 22 nd so we never used to put the decorations up until then, and the tree the day after his special day.

Now he's an adult we do decorate a bit earlier , usually triggered by Christmas cards accumulating on the bookcase. 

Decorations come down on Twelfth Night and not before.

Good morning   Sunny and very cold out there. Sparkling white stuff all over everything and dog walkers with woolly hats, mittens and plumes of steam around their heads.
