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!  

Serious! Really

Noggin the Nog - happy days Tamarix! Watched Noggin and the Ice Dragon as a child. Just beautiful, and Oliver Postagte's voice ....Bought a Noggin book for my daughter when she was little and she loved it. 

Beech hedge

Flowersforbees- the hedging companies supply bare root hedge from November through to March so you should be fine ordering it just now. I've got some coming this year from Hopes Grove nursery - ordered online. Used them before and they were very good.

pd- how could you think such a thing...

It was very pretty but I'm a good girl! There's another beauty near me which has been planted near a front door which is a shame. It's huge and is a stunning colour just now. 

David- Lakes are lovely at this time of year. Used to holiday there often in early autum. Hope the weather is kind to you. 


That new roundup gel

You'll have to grit your teeth and dig it out Valerie 

Don't think anything will work on it apart from brute force. If it's the type that runs and it likes where it's growing you're always going to struggle with it. At my last house the previous owners had planted one in a strange little group of plants next to the field which backed onto us. It wasn't an issue because we just mowed round it to keep it under control.

Morning all. Chucking it down here but if we had any storms last night I didn't hear them thankfully . Still very mild.

work for me too 

Doubt if I'll get anything else done outside but might get some bulbs potted inside if nothing else takes me away from home.

Have a good day all.

PS Glad the tart showed up archie...if you know what I mean..ooh err matron

Beautiful pic of the Acer David. They grow well up here as long as they're sheltered. Passed a lovely one yesterday  - quite small but had a stunning soft orangey glow. Will have to go out and look for it again!

Sky plussed it Dove 

It wasn't me Archie- honest. Verdun's suddenly gone quiet. I'm putting two and two together here KEF....

I'll have the lemon and passionfruit please! 

Very kind of you to share fidget 

Disappeared for me too Dove. No storm here though thankfully.

lily- that's what passes for humour in Verdun's strange little Cornish world....

we just try and keep him happy by throwing him the odd bun or two. 

(he meant 'resent'!)

KEF- steady on...buffing feet sounds a bit rude.  I used to use the electric sander on mine when I did a lot of walking. Far better than those fancy things from the chemist!

Fidget- what's in the Godfather truffle?  Is it Marlon Brandy.....
