Panda - they kept saying 'Murray' yesterday as though there was only one, and had to correct themselves. Poor Jamie! He takes it all really well though. That was a great total you got. Bet you're pleased

But you are the King of Pedants, Hosta - no room for anyone else. We're all merely your lowly servants on a tier far below your gold, diamond encrusted one....

Did I worm my way out of that? 

The sun's come out here - why didn't it do that first thing, then I could have walked early and still been home in time for the tennis...

Hawthorn Topiary

I'd guess it's not a popular subject for topiary as it's deciduous. Perhaps that's the reason you rarely see it used. Slightly on a tangent - but I've seen Pyracantha  cloud pruned against a wall - it looks stunning. It comes down to one's imagination really

I was catching up with it this morning, hollie -the two episodes from last night.

I don't watch any telly on sat nights, only things I've recorded. I hate all those reality shows, and don't watch soaps either.  

I have tennis to watch soon

Yes hollie - Martin does.  Won't spill the beans though  I love the Scandi dramas. Intelligent writing and good acting. 

Dark here too - I'll need a light on to do my sewing. 

At least the birds are struggling to get to the feeders without being blown off course. The wind has just done that howling, whistling thing - brilliant! I'm easily pleased

You're absolutely right Dave, it's there for a reason. Keeping it working effectively is important. They often seem to be unnecessarily stiff, which makes people inclined to leave them open, resulting in problems as you describe.

Runny, you'll laugh again when I tell you that the name of the cod's head dish is called Crappit Heid (said with a Scot's accent).


That's what many Scots have after imbibing too much beer the night before pansyface  

I'm not one of them, in case you're wondering

Your post wasn't there a minute ago LP. Hope you get some relief soon. It's been pretty horrific for you. Are you any further forward with your building/water supply situation?

Have a good time Dove and give Wonks a hug 

Will you get to see the tennis though?

Morning all - no walking for me    A vile, windy, sleety day, so it's just hideous at low level, and whiteout any higher. Snow is preferable to walk in, but not when it's this kind of day!  I don't need to be any kind of hero.  

Blustery indeed chicky - hang on to your hollyhocks ...

Those look terrific Panda. Bet they go quickly!

Will have to prep dinner and do h****work before the tennis. Should be fantastic - the tennis I mean, not dinner... 

Is anyone watching The Bridge? (part 3)  It's very complicated, as always, but enthralling
