Do they get quite big Bob ? I'm not familiar with them.

Dessert apples - glut!

Just saw this. Not sure of the reason Rosemary. Where I work there is Boston Ivy (same family) growing on the south facing well and it colours beautifully. Perhaps it is the soil although we're on clay here too. Is there any other planting round about and how does it look? Perhaps a feed or something may be required although usually these creepers don't need much assistance.

Sorry - I'm not sure that was much help

Don't think that outfit's going to stay clean for long Stacey!

Don't think it has to be too big UW. About 6" or so. I'm sure someone will correct that if i'm miles out! My problem is that b****y cats come in as well through the gaps I leave under the trees.  I've got a nice quiet little corner by the shed so I'm hoping I might get a visit from one now and again.

My daughter cooked a quantity of Bramleys and then froze them. She's eaten them all in various ways and hasn't keeled over so I think it's safe to say it's ok to freeze! 

She split it into several small pots and used it mainly for pancakes but I expect yours would be good for a sauce to accompany meat Daintiness. Shouldn't matter that it's dessert apples either.

I sometimes wonder if the weather people go a bitoverboard now after the 'Micahel Fish'  rumpus. They seem to try and cover all angles just in case!

Hello all. Dubious looking day here. Does that make sense? Curtain making here if the rain comes back on. Will go and get gravel and compost perhaps to get on with filling rasied beds if it looks like staying dry for a bit. Not seen GW yet, will catch it later.

Have a good time Dove and nut.Careful with those chain saws...

I was just about to suggest that Euonymous nut! There's a few Sumach round here and they are beautiful - no doubt about it. Amelanchier is pretty at this time of year too.

That sounds very interesting chicky! Is it an obelisk of some sort?

Here's one from a holiday a few years ago. It's just a fairly old Olympus digital camera. Not sure of the settings or any techie data LF - sorry!
