Morning all - not sure how the weather is - can't see to the end of the road! We've got your share Lesley - and we sent Pat some  

The chap doing the Scottish news this morning - it comes from Clydeside - might as well have  drawn the blinds. It was just grey behind him 

I dare say they'll be more TP 81s on the roads today....

Good luck to son Steve - hope it goes well 

Off for a quick look round before I head out. Have  a good day everyone if I don't see you

Don't think we're getting it here Verd - just much further north and east.

Would have been hard to beat Scotland on Sunday, after the fog shifted and the temps got up a little bit - it was only 4 degrees when I left the house. Think it got well  into double figures in most places.

You'll need one of those rubber ring things to sit on, Hosta - like you get when you have piles!   Best to have it checked though

I love the idea of your insects 'chilling and snoozing'  

Houttuynia cordata

My sister admired a plant I had when she visited a while ago. It was Heucherella 'Alabama Sunrise'. She was revamping a border and decided it would be nice in there.

Couple of weeks ago she informed me she'd bought  'that nice plant in your garden - you know - the one with the coloured foliage'.

I couldn't recall, then she said  'it starts with H - ehmm - oh yes, it's Houttuynia'....

Sarcoccoa confusa

I lifted and hacked one back a while ago  Victoria - it wasn't doing well. I potted it up at the time  and I've just planted it. We can compare them next year!

I think Sam wants a more solid barrier to blur the boundary between his garden and what lies beyond - as they often did back in the Landscape and Picturesque eras.

It's a great trick and works best with an evergreen barrier 

Overwintering lilies

Did you mean lilies primrose? 

I always leave mine in the ground. Best to leave the foliage to die back naturally though to feed the bulb for next year.

Members of band screwing him over re money.... # for only metal, what a bore...

Actually that's it - not so much a clue - simply the answer! 

Glad you had a good trip Dove - 'Mr Jerk' must have been related to 'Total P**** 81' who was on the very foggy Loch Lomond road yesterday...

Couldn't resist  

Do you know what Make me Smile's about doc?...I'll give you a clue if you like 

I particularly enjoyed his acoustic tour, with his brother, donkey's years ago 

Congrats to OH Steve - looks like a lovely meal
