That's what the art teacher along the road from me calls his 'outdoor refuge'  Hosta!

Yada yada yada KEF.....

Bit harsh Dove   I think he put the question out there for verification - not sure if anyone responded though to confirm or otherwise. Nothing would surprise me though. I'm very fond of him - brilliant with people who are struggling with a difficult story to tell. Never sounds insincere. 

Youngest fairylet just quizzed me over the 'eating of the Quality Street' and complaining that she'd had  hardly any of them. If you're not fast you're last, I said. 

I'm looking forward to being old and just living on biscuits and chocolates and not caring KEF. Doubt I'd stay at seven stone though - I'd need to lose a stone or two  to get there first    

I went out when the rain went off briefly and hoiked the fence back together - sort of. Fixed my neighbour's guttering on her garage before it fell off and took the soffit with it. Needs more brackets methinks. Weather's rubbish  here today.

You'd be right to be chuffed with the toms Pat 

Lovely  pic - can't see the cockatoos, but I can just about hear them....

Beautiful HB. What tremendous patience you have. As Hosta said - just getting one of those would be a triumph, let alone so many

Oh LP - I've just seen this. I can't add anything more to what's already been said. Sending you all my love - and take care of yourself too xxx

Anniversaries are always difficult Dyer's End - no matter how long ago they are - and especially when someone goes too soon. Love and a hug for you too xxx

can anyone identify this evergreen please?

doc -  Ballater is so beautiful, but at this time of year,  if it's not snowbound....

Glad you're feeling a bit more like yourself. Hope you have a good holiday and come back refreshed and renewed 

Thanks Dove - it was a very wild, noisy wind last night and then the rain came. 

I just heard Jeremy say that some cars in flooded streets have had parking tickets on them....I can't say here what I really want to say ... so I'll just put **#@!!!!*** 

can anyone identify this evergreen please?

Definitely Pieris - it'll bring up something like japonica after it. There are a few common varieties like Mountain Fire and Forest Flame
