Hosta ((hugs)) well, if any injury can be said to have a silver lining it looks as if yours has - winter sun holidaying allowed/virtually compulsory, and a spring convalescence - if you'd planned it you couldn't have done better

Seriously - hope all goes well when the time comes

Hedgehog food and slug slime

The slugs here  often help clear up any crumbs the hedgehogs have left - I wonder whether the hedgehogs then come back and hoover up the slugs as they''re hoovering up their crumbs

Oooh, love fox terriers

Nut, what about Chippenham Park?   How far is that from you?  CB7 5PT  It's open in February from 12th onwards for the snowdrops which are supposed to be glorious.  

Sorry Duchess - we've rather hijacked your thread

By the way, a friend on another forum who uses Macs etc has flagged up this new scam  

He's also given details of what to do about it, so it's worth having a look if you have an iphone, ipad or mac pc.

The Kinks' Lola - a different kettle of fish entirely and The Kinks are/were much more my cup of tea than BM and they were all over my bedroom wall in my teens - have I told you I've drunk champagne with Ray Davies   Honest injun! 

But my car is definitely Lola from Copacabana - she was once very glamorous - but if you look closely her age is beginning to show - but I'm very fond of her - she's still a lot of fun

Folks - if you've had a PM from NoraGW it's ok she's legit - she's part of the GW online team working on the re-vamp of the site etc.  I knew she'd be contacting us but wasn't sure when - I can vouch for her

  They are rather lovely aren't they?  We had a few flowers this year; it was only planted last year so hopefully it'll go from strength to strength.  

I'll just mention that a few of us who live in East Anglia sometimes get together to arrange trips to visit gardens in the area, and usually a Snowdrop Walk as well - so keep your eyes open next year - we publicise the outings on the forum and we don't bite ... but we do eat cake

Not especially - I think he's a great performer and has recorded some great songs (although age is catching up with him now) but I wouldn't say I'm a real fan.
