RB - very satisfying. They allow me to eat KitKats and scones without feeling guilty 

Hope you have a good time tomorrow 

Panda...I  said PANDA...WAKE UP!!.....

I think Verd's mankini will be tasteful. Salvia blue perhaps...

Shrub name

We'd need a bit more info than that Abbie! 

Having said that - Ceanothus ?

I can smell that pudding from here chicky 

A cunning plan for bulb storage is always worthwhile  

Glad you got them all planted. Hope those veg plot ones give you a few flowers

A day on the hills is a different kind of walk though Verdi.   Three hours is a short half day really. Always something to see, and a new challenge, or just pushing yourself a bit  harder if it's a familiar walk - as that one is.  

If this weather keeps up, I won't get much more done outdoors this year. I've got things to move but it's dark when I get in from work, so it's only  possible to get things done at weekends now.

At the last meeting it was decided.........

Verd - they were probably as vile and soulless as Harthill itself 

What is safe to plant over a ground source heat loop?

I can't help you directly BOrchid, but were you given a thorough explanation for not planting if the pipes are that far below ground, or was it just a general 'you can't plant there' type of statement? It seems overly cautious since the roots of most plants and shrubs don't go anywhere near that.

I left the car just after half eight Lesley. Three hours walking, so it was ideal . The weather now is what it was like up the last summit of Beinn a' Ghlo when I was there - on August 1st! Summers in Scotland 

I think Verd wears a bikini most of the time...we have to wear them under oor simmits 

The sausage rolls  Scotch pies 

Nigthy night Pat.   I watched a Dylan 'covers' show I'd recorded, last night - K T Tunstall and Adele on it, among many others. Excellent.

Ursinum is wild garlic - but they smell garlicky and the foliage is broad.

Dig out what you don't want B3. The red seeds are a bit puzzling 

And deadhead them if you decide to keep them - then you won't get so many more

Verd - as I drove through Harthill ( a vile, soulless  place at the best of times) on the M8 today I spotted a sign at the services - 'Award winning Cornish pasties' .

Are you Piskies trying to start a revolution? ...

You won't get our haggis you know....

actually.... you can have that....
