We won't hold it against you David!

That makes me so angry David. I've just had a rant on the Hello thread 

I'll go and take a photo or two now to calm myself down!

Steady on pd. We don't want you having a relapse 

Bl- it's taken a ridiculous amount of time for the politicians to recognise that the people in Somerset are in a lousy situation. I think it's despicable, and at the risk of being controversial, why are we constantly sending aid to other countries (often wealthy enough ones) when people here need it urgently? And of course, the price of everything will go up because farmers' land is devastated, but it will affect poorer people most.  'All in it together' ?  Yeah right.

I'll get off my soapbox now, you'll be glad to hear

Hope it's all going well David. It's a bit of an upheaval at the best of times, but worse when you've had the flooding with it. 

Glad the eyes are fine

Funny how their supporters often only post for the first time to say so,  isn't it?......

More lovely pix. There's a big round yellow thing appeared in the sky here so I might go out and take a few photos once the kitchen floor dries. Even have batteries charged. I seem very organised....hmmm can't last 

Lovely purple on that hellebore pinkq. One of my favourite flower colours. Have clematis and irises in dark purples - love them. 

I had  a blackbird taking a bath in the barrow recently- wasn't able to get a pic though. Great when you capture those moments 

Hope to see you on Hello soon pq- we don't bite -not often anyway -and you'll find KEF and I are the normal ones so we'll keep you right.... 

New Garden!

Exciting project Simon and I wish you all the best 

I inherited  a very large white buddleia when I moved in here last year and it's getting moved to another area as part of my garden plan (and also because it's in the way of the forthcoming extension!) so perhaps we could compare notes 

I've also taken cuttings of mine so perhaps you could also do that later in case they don't survive the move.

'Aviators' Verd? Like Biggles do you mean....

That's unfair - yours would be the easiest!

And it might be a little disturbing altogether....

What is hapenning to my lawn in the winter

But did you put a sign up to stop any more moving in Ducky?.....

I think weather conditions have had a big impact this year too - a lot more insects still around and breeding that, in a normal winter, wouldn't be. If you can do the black plastic trick (annie describes it on the previous page)  a bit at a time, it might get you a head start. Worth a try round the worst  affected bits perhaps.

Morning all. It must be Friday - it's kitchen spamming day!  Well done lily. 

No work for me and no need to get up so early as it's half term at daughter's school. She has  3 exams next week to study for though, so I'll have to go and crack the whip 

Mr and Mrs Robin were out getting breakfast earlier - must be building up their strength - if you get my drift... 

Bit more pleasant today, might even get washing out and then I'm going to the nursery. Hope you enjoy your cake/snowdrop frenzy Panda. 

I see the powers that be are now getting off their well fed behinds and making a show of concern in Somerset - horse and stable door springs to mind...

And on that faintly political note, I'm off to have a catch up and another cup of char
