Is that drizzle as in rain or drizzle as in the cake......confused 


Both Tracey - we're masochists here. Can't beat a right guid drizzle! 

And no - I wouldn't have admitted to that....

I'm all heart Dove. You can have  a few others too but we'll keep Ewan McGregor thanks 

Send your address David and I'll be round later 

Positive thoughts and silly things for the tough times

One day in work it was quite quiet and they played Bridge Over TW . When it finished I just turned to the others and just said - 'and that -  is how you deliver a song'! The girls were killing themselves laughing. It makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up no matter how often I hear it. Always cry too. What a big sap I am! I think it's the finest vocal performance ever, and the finest 'package' of any rock/pop recording - it has it all. 

chick - it's one of those rare albums  that doesn't have a duff track on it. The clawhammer intro on The Boxer is stunning. Although Paul Simon's  'There goes rhymin' simon' is a big favourite of mine for the same reason, and several of Joni's of course as i'm a humongous fan!

Sorry Andy - I didn't see your post there. I think I'm developing new strange powers - I was thinking about you yesterday and wondering how you were.  

It's McLaren's Nursery on Lochlibo Road, a mile or two south of Neilston. They have a website which has just been updated for the new season. It would be about an hour or so from where you are but it's huge and well worth a visit. Nice little place just along the road from it (at Lugton) called The Canny Man so can take the missus for some lunch!

That's a poor excuse for a lemon drizzle cake Dove 

Let's start a revolution....they can take our lemon cake - but they can never take our drizzle....

Sorry. This Independence thing is starting to affect me more than I thought....

Horrible day here - wind, rain, cold. Rain/hail battering on the windows and doors last night so I didn't sleep too well. Don't think I'll be doing any gardening today somehow

Morning all. Well I'm glad I missed all the **** 

They say God loves a trier....I think he'd have  doubts about that one though.

Verd and Nut are right. Press ignore on the correct avatar and he/she/it can change names till he/she/it explodes but it won't impact on us.

I think it's a medal Daniel and the team deserve.

People power.

Channel 4 tomorrow at 8pm chick 

He was masterful in his design of hard landscaping. Getting the balance right in gardens requires so much skill. He was one of the finest I think.

They can go in the ground Stacey. Think they like decent drainage - not sure though as I've never grown them! 

I'm off to bed now too. Night all

Night Dove

He's doing a Time Team special tomorrow night on Ned Lutyens for anyone who might be interested.

He was the renowned architect who did all the hard landscaping in the famous gardens he designed with Gertrude Jekyll , among many other things like the Cenotaph and the Viceroy's House in Delhi etc.  I'm a big fan.

It was the 'familiar' troll Stacey and he's gone. Removed from the forum.

It's now a pleasant and peaceful place again for the nice people that post here. 

Need plant I-D please.

It's a great project you have Jack. I hope you enjoy developing it. Photos are a good way of marking your progress and it keeps the motivation going on those days when you feel it's all getting a bit much. Once you  see your plants growing well and flowering it'll be a real thrill.

Dove I'd forgotten how pretty the Nigella seedheads are. I think I have a packet of seeds somewhere. Might chuck a few in a little corner out where I have the car parked. Lovely and sunny there.
