Morning all. Supposed to be quite decent weather today and weekend so I hope to get outside - or maybe I could join the throngs getting their Black Friday bargains at the supermarket.....not.  Adults fighting over TVs and thingummy jigs.... 

Hope chicky makes her plane in time 

Wrap up LilyP - plenty of hot drinks and cake are the best remedy 

Off for a quick look round. Have a good day whatever the weather

Edd - coat - NOW! 

We expect pix of the forthcoming baubles fidget  


I'm off too I think. Very weary this week - must be the weather. Enjoy the rest of the evening everyone. 

Christmas Door Garland/Wreath

I have a plain willow one which I bought many years ago, and I attach various 'bits' onto it. Rhododendron leaves and buds are good - especially sprayed gold. Any bits of holly, ivy etc are good - easy to attach - and I have cinammon sticks, red beads (berries) and pine cones which I wire on. Finish it off with wire edged ribbon for hanging on the front door.

Edd - brilliant bit of banter!  

Certainly a lot funnier than another thread at the moment - I'm trying to restrain myself from posting and giving the 'oxygen of publicity'...

Miserable, dreich day here yesterday - frost then fog and never got above 4 degrees all day. Today was a bit warmer - it reached the balmy heights of 7 when I came home. Hope it's warmer tomorrow so that I can get on with the last of the gravel  

Have a great time chicky - or have you already gone...

Glad you're a bit better fidget - happy belated birthday...hope you can celebrate properly when you all feel tip top 

I'm off to look round and then get dinner on. Youngest isn't well either - all the more for me

Thought I'd bump this up in case anyone feels they need a laugh 

What are you getting rid of...?

I expect your phormiums grow much quicker down there once they're divided Verd!  Wet, cold ground's the biggest issue here so I prefer them in pots mostly, although I have created good conditions for the Cream Delight in a raised bed.  I really just want an excuse for a trip to the that bad?

I'll lend them to you LP 

Preparing for new lawn in Spring

It'll certainly be magic when it's done Verd...I hope!  

Am I heading for trouble?

I'd be a little concerned about the Lavender and Rosemary if the soil's heavy - they like good drainage. You could mix some grit in with the soil as well if it's very heavy. If the plants are all small plugs it might also be safer to pot them on just now and wait till spring to put them in when they'll be a bit bigger and stronger and can grow away more readily. Excess winter wet might not be the best conditions for them at this stage.

You'd be cheaper flying out there and delivering them by hand LilyP....
