Morning/afties all. Very dark and windy here. There's a chance it might have been warmer here too Hosta....well...maybe not  

Strangely mild yesterday. We're apparently getting the remnants of Storm Hoodjikaflip from America coming in tonight and tomorrow. 

Which is nice....

Have a good trip Liri. I'm sure you will 

I'd always use B,F&B then mulch Yvie. Although I'm not usually organised enough to do them without several weeks in between 

Firstborn's bedroom always looks like it's been burgled....

I just had to share this

Maybe she flowers at night....

What type of trees to plant a long a driveway

Posted: 24/01/2016 at 17:44

My last house had a similar driveway bordering a field and, had I stayed there longer, the idea was a line of white cherry trees lining the drive. Possibly something lower growing and shrubby in between each one, but all the same. Not unlike chicky's pic above 

Anyone done any gardening today?

I actually did some gardening! Tidied some clematis, put some potted bulbs and small plants in a border, and forked the biggest  border. I'll need to get some compost and manure to put down though. Felt strange to be able to do something so early in the year here

Re the other neighbour - God loves a trier Lou 

Why are people so ignorant sometimes.

At least you'll have it all the way you want it. It's a pity we can't pick our neighbours isn't it? 

Fishing for sympathy!

Glad you're getting out so soon...they don't hang about, do they? 

At least you had the Italian Gardens prog to watch. It was a beautiful series.

Almost Verd - I reckon maybe just two thirds....

There's another small case as well 

Quite warm here too. I could go out for a walk..but I should do the washing and dusting adn find summat for the dinner tonight. 

Hope you have a good trip Liri. How strange about the paracetamol...you're not in the jungle are you? That's what there aren't any...the 'parrots eat em all'. 

That's a Verdun special

Gorgeous colour David - just what's needed on a dreich Sunday 

Glue gun Lesley - keeps them there for hours...

Love the woodie - mine hasn't made a re appearance sadly, but I live in hope. He probably comes when I'm at work and then hides whenever I look out the window. 

David's got me hooked on editing and sorting my photos now. I took this of Ben Ledi (just outside Callendar) on my way to Beinn Each, at the end of November. Cropped off the bottom bit and brightened it a little




It's my birthday
