We've got plenty of apples Hosta - I could've lobbed a few over    There's blue sky on the western horizon ..... but it's had its chance - I'm not going out there now!  All the cooking prep has been done - OH is home from work, all turkeys dispensed to their rightful places, and Christmas has officially started in this house - we're on the sofa and our feet are up!

Pat, the poem is on the Night Before Christmas thread - you've got a mention


I was going to pop out for a walk and pick some greenery for a table centrepiece but it's absolutely tipping it down here and the wind has really strengthened so I'll give that a miss this year

Hope everyone else is ok - thinking of those who've already had more than enough rain ((hugs))

My ex complained that the Decree Absolute arrived on his 50th birthday - I explained that if he hadn't taken so long to sign the paperwork it would have arrived months earlier

Hosta, Waitrose will be fine - everyone was there yesterday

More coffee, then cleaning the bathroom ..............

Hi AliciaSue

I would let it dry out - most plants, especially succulents, need much less water in the winter anyway.  I don't really water my succulents over winter - just make sure it gets as much light as possible.
