Hi blackest - thought you'd abandoned us totally! Was worried something had happened to you. Are you keeping well?

Lovely and secluded David. I'd spend even more time drinking tea if I had a nice little spot like that! 

Hope the boiler's working well today.

Morning pd. Have a nice restful day. Lousy when you get a bad night like that. Don't be giving mrs pd a hard time today or I may need to have words.... 

Blackbirds are fighting over the apples today. Really pleased that they're coming into the garden so much. Never came in last year when I moved in. Just shows how putting food out gets them visiting regularly.

I really don't like what I call 'girly' hair on boys (of any age) but he'll grow out of it Tracey - if you'll pardon the pun  

My eldest daughter's had her hair all styles and colours but I keep my mouth shut - it could be worse things she's doing. My youngest nephew was the same as a teenager. He's about to turn 29 and you couldn't meet a more respectable, polite, tidy young man! 

Sorry if  that wasn't much help really!

It also depends what other planting you have nearby. Staking might not be necessary if there are other plants to give some support, but if you're worried about it, or you have a windy,exposed site, put some in. It would be a shame to lose them jean.

You'll need a holiday chick - and a lie down in a darkened room. 

and a medal of course 

Just noticed my Christmas box recently as well. There's been flowers on it for ages but the scent only seems to be getting going now. Thought I still had no sense of smell after my lurgy!

KEF- Dove  won't be so lucky second time - she'll probably get the ones with the half mast trousers and the builder's bum look

Morning all. not going to mention the flood situation or I'll get angry again, and you'll be calling me and Dove the 'Angry Birds. 

Glad you're ok Verd and Pam.

Raining here and a chance of some snow later. Hope not. Will go to the nursery and see if I can get some primulas.

Have a good day everyone

No - full fat KEF. Don't like the taste of chemicals!

Any kind of oil as far as I'm aware RT. I often give things a clean and  spray with  WD40, or some 3 in one oil. I believe Alan Titchmarsh used to keep a bucket of sand mixed with used engine oil handy to pop his spade in after use. It  then helps prevent mud sticking to it

Not me KEF - don't touch it! Tea's the strongest thing I drink 

Although I did have a glass of Coke with my dinner....
