Think someone forgot to tell these little polyanthus I've got put aside too!


Finish the pond now or in the spring?

Know the feeling! Running out of weather now for projects. I've got loads of things to do but I know I can't do it all and some will have to wait till next year.  

The dragonflies are particularly beautiful. I used to rescue some at last house as we had a smaller pond which was netted - young fish were in it. They were quite happy to let me lift them out and set them free.

Try and avoid swimming in it too often though

I'm all heart Verd....

I know it's not very attractive but if it protects your investment and gets it going then it's surely worth doing. 

PS- I didn't know you could get 'rubber' from a privet ....should have gone to Specsavers Verd!

My daughter has been picking them off each day on her way in from school! She loves a sour apple and used to eat the bits of  left over Bramleys when I did an apple pie!

Have a virtual one on me....

Oh what a shame. 

Natural selection - very good!

Salino - I think you've got it! The flesh is very white and it is a lovely crisp apple. Sharp but fresh.  I hate those 'floury' grainy tasteless apples so I'm glad this one is so nice.

MrsG- bubblier just means 'cheaper'- or am I becoming very cynical?

Buy yourself something nice at GC

Ignoring is often the best way

Well said KEF.

 Hope your Mum is ok. Sounds like it's successful though which is a great relief for you all.  Very stressful times.

Here's a few more apples chick - no idea of the variety -  got them a few months back as they were meant to be Bramleys but we're enjoying eating them now!

The other tree I got at the same time is definitely a different variety - apples are bigger and a different shape and colour.

Hello Woody - nice to see you 

My daughter's lemon drizzle is very good. Doesn't make it often enough though 

Panda, I have to admit the clock thing doesn't affect me much except for the fact that it means long dark nigths and the inevitable cold wet winter! I've got loads of bulbs in pots so I'm looking forward to them in spring and my Phormiums have never looked better - the Yellow Wave ones are really vibrant just now and a real burst of colour on these dull days.

Hope you're keeping well.
