I bite the chocolate off first on a crunchie then  eat the middle. Not had one in  a long time.

Love a Marathon (yes- Marathon not Snickers!) or a Picnic. 

Peppermint Aero...

Just had leftover chilli for dinner. Yumm. Potted lots of bulbs today - doesn't look like  I made much of a dent in the stack I bought though! 

Eucalyptus Tree - should it stay or go?

I planted three eucalyptus along a short boundary from my back door to give next door neighbour privacy as our house was elevated. Kept it as a small hedge around 4' or so. Just gave it a haircut every spring. Hedge is still there 15 years on and so is the house - passed it the other day!

I'll put my tuppenceworth in if I may. I joined this forum in March having just moved house and been through some stressful times. The garden has always been a place of healing and comfort to me and I was looking forward to a new start. This forum - or rather, the many good people on it - has been a source of pleasure, inspiration, help and support in the last 6 or 7 months. It's been the same for many others and I hope it continues to be exactly that. There are people on here who I consider to be good friends, even though I've never met them. 

Don't let the minority spoil it for the majority.

I don't intend to let them do it to me.

I'll be sick if I eat all that cake after I ate Dove's the other day ...

I'm glad there's an appropriate number of candles on there BL!

Thankx pd- 28 tomorrow - can't get away with it any longer I suppose!

 Was going to do some scones if daughter doesn't do me a cake. Going to get some bulbs planted in the cheapo pots I got yesterday. They'll be great for putting in amongst other plants.

When did you take the hydrangea cuttings AJK? I bought some oak leaf ones a month or so ago and I'd quite like to propagate them.

Morning all. Late for me - but - I'm off all week so I had a lie in!!

Well, kind of.  Chilly here but bright so might actually do something productive.

Birthday soon for me too chicky - sooner than you though unless yours is today....

I may have to make my own cake unless daughter does one before she goes to Uni tomorrow.
