Hope you enjoy 'the Madame' BL. Do you sing along to 'one fine day'...or is that just me....

Bob - know the feeling when you get something dug out and replaced with a more suitable specimen. You'll enjoy that burst of colour when it appears 

Progress made with my paths but the rain and light beat me. Will start to get the proper stuff down tomorrow now that all the prep is done.  Can I borrow your sofa again chicky? Think I may be dozing later  

Get the adblocker lily. No more **** 

Glad I never had to experience what you're going through with your mum Verd. Big old hug from me.

I have to agree with you Salino. I haven't posted on this thread as I haven't watched the programmes - I don't like the woman at all. Each to their own eh?

Bette Midler is ...well....divine 

Won't mention it as such Matty, but....glad you're doing ok 

Are you sure it's the dog that's eating the leftovers Verd? 

Had to come in as it's raining a bit now but finally got the last bit of 'stuff' dug, including sawing some large tree roots out  ( why is the last bit always the worst? )  so I'll go and start shovelling gravel in a moment or three. Keeps me off the streets I suppose...

Over Wintering Dahlias

That's the usual advice wgamst, but the weather has been so mild in most areas that plants could still be sitting in the ground till the end of the year and then rotting can be an issue instead. Lots of other forum members simply lift theirs at this time of year and store in the usual way to no ill effect.

Morning all. Had a good sleep after dozing on the sofa till all hours...

Try that tonight bekkie..

We have no right to moan about our weather when you see that snow in Bill's pix do we? You stay cosy too Bill - hope it doesn't get that bad with you.

Damp here just now but hopefully it'll clear a bit and I can get started on the gravel - it eventually arrived at 4 yesterday.

Love the panda pix 

DD - keep your thumbs out the way.....or better still - suggest that he concretes a few posts in instead  

Off for a look round while I have another cuppa
