I am joking - I really look like Sophia Loren....

You've been rumbled Verdi 

Biba - my sister had loads of Biba stuff lily. If she'd kept them she could have sold them for big bucks on ebay.  I'm surprised she hasn't kept them - she's kept just about everything else she's ever owned!!

Verd - yada,yada,yada......I'll chuck you some crumbs later- stale bread only - no doughnuts or cake 

I may try out a new spell on you sometime though.. just to keep you on your toes...

Did we finish all figet's chocs? I enjoyed mine very much. Archie's cake looks good though 

Chucking it down again here.

pd- absolutely bonkers 

A woman I work with went into hospital for quite a serious operation a few years ago and came out with MRSA 

Got a bit done outside as it cleared up a bit and to be good here tomorrow so I'll be trying to get the rest of my wood sawn and attached and maybe painted. Do you mean horrible cold or horrible wet pd? Or both....


Virgina Creeper

About 18 months ago I pulled a piece off a Boston Ivy (also a parthenocissus) where I work and it rooted very easily and is now a decent sized plant ready to go in the ground. There was a bit of a heel on it and I just stuck it in a pot to see if it would take. Worth trying the same thing!

Great pic David! Where I work it's in an old building and the south wall is covered and looking lovely just now.

Paige, I'm not aware of any real pests on Boston Ivy/Virginia Creeper. They always seem pretty trouble free.

Shed leak

Have you got good clearance at the base of the shed too RR, or is it sitting where water can travel up from the ground-ie planting or climbers next to it? I moved my shed recently to sit in front of a new fence I put in, but there's a decent gap between them and it's well off the ground on a concrete/slab base.

Also, it's amazing how much water can find it's way in through the tiniest of holes!

I've just read your posts VERY afraid....

And the broomstick's soft, sagey green - don't care for blue. It's getting serviced right now, but when it's ready....

I've never smoked but know plenty who have been addicted for a long time and managed to kick it so keep going dolgarrog! Have you tried the electric ones? The partner of a friend - smoked heavily all his life - has been using one for several months now and swears by it.

Brightened up here so I'm going to get a bit done outdoors shortly.

Enjoyed that cake MrsG. Had to have another cup of tea to go with it!
