Thanks Nut

Good morning all   Thank you for all the singing - we really should have a Forkers Choir   Did sound as if one or two of you had sore throats - perhaps you should suck on a Zube

I've not done the paper round this morning  I'm still in jim jams and drinking coffee - I've been opening presents and being sung at on the phone by son and daughter.  I shall go and shower and get dressed in a few mins, then I'm being taken out for lunch and a shopping session by OH 

Verdun, I've found that you can fit several hellebores into a car so you can get both

Hi Deckchair - good name

I suspect that these are just the older leaves that are dying off.  It's good gardening practise to remove the 'brown mushy leaves' so that they don't attract slugs and snails etc, and so that any rot doesn't spread into the main part of the plant.

I bought a Karcher last year, with the attachment for cleaning patio's that looks like a metal detector. Brilliant, The only thing I found was the amount of water left behind. I found myself sweeping the excess water off the patio down the drive. Also you get really filthy! You can look like a dirt bike rider afterwards.

So I'll have to stand OH in the centre of the lawn and hose him down afterwards
