Technical problem

Never for one moment suspected that it was Cangran

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

Thanks Lyn - I have replied ((hugs))

B******* Magpies

Magpies love suet and over the past few years there seems to have been an increase  in suet based food for bird feeders (suet balls etc) and I think that's attracting them into gardens in the winter when they would normally be out in the fields, hedgerows and roadsides after carrion.

Families eh!    You've done all you can do DD - all you can do now is just to let the dust settle and hopefully distance and time will smooth things over. 

There are members of my family who cannot/will not be in the same room as each other.  Giving them a good shaking (and more) hasn't worked.  They and we just have to accept it and get on with our lives.

parsnips

If the browning is inside the parsnips themselves it might be parsnip blight - a bacterial condition.  It can be caused by not rotating the crops and the spores then stay in the soil and infect the next crop of parsnips the following year. 

Don't compost affected roots, and grow your parsnips in a different part of the garden next year.

Plant it up, give it lots of water and you may be pleasantly surprised,

That's what I'd do - it has two chances  - if nothing happens by spring put it on the compost.

Lyn, I'm surprised that you have any time or energy left for gardening ((hugs))

I hope your son is on the mend

Good morning all    Lovely photos Liri

Woody, sad to hear about the fire   Hopefully everyone ok physically? 

My best friends' house burned down some years ago - she rescued the gerbils - and then had to stand back and watch - fortunately everyone ok and the house got rebuilt even better than before.  However, they sold up and moved to another house in the next village - they just didn't want a thatched house again.  It was sparks from the chimney that started the fire.

Indoor hyacinths - are they ready for some light??

I'd give them a bit longer in the cool and dark - maybe just another week or so.
