This has started to happen in the last few years.  I don't remember it happening ages ago.  (But then I don't remember much these days...)

thought that was just me Steve 

Mine are also outside, slightly sheltered from the worst of the rain which causes more problems than nay cold will give them. They'll be absolutely fine John, it's what they're designed to do.

Hope you get a good display

Morning all. Vile here 

Must have had a senior moment re the piece of music Dove. In my defence - I only heard a few notes....  Both beautiful pieces. Not listened to them in a very long time,but the Barber was a favourite in our household growing up.

Lyn - isn't Anthony Andrews' performance just the most wonderful piece of acting ever? Don't think he ever came any where near it again, although I know he mostly does theatre so can't back that up. Everything about that production was sheer class. Castle Howard isn't too shabby either. They say that Waugh had it in mind for the family home when he wrote it  

Off to work shortly so I'll have a quick catch up before I go. Was too busy watching Arne Dahl last night ever since RB (?) mentioned it . 

Have a good day everyone - hope the weather's kinder than it is here!

Morning Pat - hope you've had a good night's sleep

It's such a beautiful piece Dove 

Escapism Verd.  It's not my thing either, despite Brideshead Revisited being my all time favourite book and piece of TV. That had a lot to do with the writing, production, acting and the faithful adaptation of the book, as much as anything else though. It's also a study of class, privilege and all that goes with it    

Don't be scaredy cat.....

Never understood the attraction of that Salvia Verd 

My garden's too new to get rid of anything, but give me a few months...

Think Lyn means Kinky boots Hosta 

Just watching C'file now having recorded it.

Glad mum is settling Liri. You can feel happier about going away now. Sorry I can't make the weather better for you - we had a lovely week or two up until last week... 

chicky - the tiredness will keep him from getting carried away 

Goulash consumed   Cuppa needed now...and a KitKat

Barber's adagio for strings Dove 

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

Posted: 08/11/2015 at 16:29

That does make sense pansyface, but I thought the heat came from the ground itself , lower down, rather than heat from the sun permeating. Bob's google info would seem to support that. Perhaps the OP could ask the suppliers for a bit of clarification - in writing, just in case there's an issue later.

 You know what these companies are like

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...
