Hi fidget, Pam  and KEF. Hope you two had lovely birthdays - did you keep me some cake?  

I don't ask for much 

You're in luck fidge - the wand's just been serviced and has some supercharged new powers....

We had a little sun today - briefly  - before the lashing rain came back on. Very soggy here still but the days are lengthening so spring will be here soon

What made you think it was worms springfield? I've never known worms to cause something like that. Unfortunately  I can't get a clear enough picture when I enlarge. Can you give us more info about the conditions?

Honestly you lot - I don't come on here for a few days and when I do, Verdun's still talking about cakes...I'll have to put you on a diet....

But here's a joke, since I'm sure you've missed my quality quips -

What's green and square?

A lemon in disguise.

Hello all. Not been around much recently due to 'stuff'. 

Will catch up on the posts over the next few hours. 



Plant sometimes commonly called Bumble Bee plant/Bee plant/shrub?

Possibly one of the Cotoneasters, pariate. Bees love the flowers, and the flowers are followed by berries which the birds love.

Evening all. Just catching up with you all as I've been at work all day. 

Specially for archie, I did a roast with the Yorkshires that I promised a week ago, so here's a few to go with your casserole :

 Pdoc - hope you can keep the water at bay. Perhaps a raft is what's required 

Have a Yorkshire if archie leaves you  one.

Feeling very grateful here as we have no real weather problems. Just cold winds and sleety snow/rain after the snow and ice this morning. I have an elderly uncle who lives about 5/6 miles north of the flooded areas east of Windsor, but he is ok thankfully.

Thinking of all of you who are having dreadful conditions today, and wishing I could do something practical to help.

Get if off your chest.

I'm with her on that one  KEF 

Our council constantly bangs on about how they keep the council tax low, frozen again for another year - blah blah blah. That's because they don't provide decent recycling facilities -  among many other things....  

Get if off your chest.

Does your Mum want a space too?

Ashleigh - there's a nursery online called  Long Acre Plants which has a lovely website and they specialise in shade lovers. I've not used them personally, but found them because I was looking for specific plants. They look very good.
