Trying to untangle more lights...#**!!#

I still have lots of berries on the cotoneasters Pam. Don't think there's been enough freezing weather here yet - lots of bitter cold winds and rain instead - although the robin was stuffing his little face with them last week when I was out there.

You and me both David...not to be..such is life eh?

Crocus Bulbs coming through in December

Mine are well through too Mike. Been very mild here through November and December so they put on a real spurt. I put an extra layer of compost on top purely because mine are mostly in new beds and they've settled a fair bit with all the rain.

They'll all be fine. As already stated, the cold weather will slow them a bit, and we can't kid ourselves that it's going to be this mild for the new next few months! 

Here's to seeing all those lovely little gems poking through and bringing a smile to our faces on a miserable winter's day

Yours are lovely Panda. Cheeky reindeer are hard to beat! 

Would be nice to see some Christmas tree pics too if anyone wants to display them.

Maybe on David's camera thread, or a dedicated one?

Off to 'do' daughter's hair now and put up some more lights in back window if I can wade through all the decorated biscuits covering every surface....

Will they make it as far as the nieces Panda? 

Youngest made some of those the other day at school - she saved me one and very nice it was too!

Here's her 'alternative' Rudolph - he's more 'Zorrudolph'...


Merry Christmas

Happy Anniversary to you and Mr G. Have a lovely lunch   My grandparents were married on Christmas Day in the early 20th century. Up here it wasn't a holiday back then - even when Mum was a young girl - it was just another working day!

Can I borrow someone to clean the bathroom too...

Been wild and windy and sleety here but the sun's made a brief appearance. Cold though. Going out for tea with a friend later. Not much shopping still to do - only buy for the girls. Like to do a nice stocking for them even though it's the fat man in the red suit's job really...he's a bit busy though 

Lazing's good pd...I'll save you a gingerbread 'person' for later!

I love swans too. They say they mate for life...

 These are at Loch Melfort, just south of Oban on the west coast of Scotland. First time I was there it was just the swans - there are quite a few of them - and next time  they brought 'baby' to show us.

Morning everyone.

Have you 'made a list and checked it twice' chick?   I buy things and hide them then forget where I put them. I'm only 27 ..ooops 28 now... too, so I can't understand it....

More icing of gingerbread house to do- think daughter will be doing most of that but I may be on 'roof painting' duty! Have to wait for batteries to charge to take photos of all her biccies - there's a lot of them!

Dove and fidget - those pesky elves always need keeping in line. There's a Cornish one in particular who refuses to behave. Always eating the buns that are for Santa and he's been at the gingerbread men too....


Merry Christmas
