Serious! Really

In the seventies, there was a man who used to come riding where I work called Mr. Tuckey.

His first name was Ken.

I kid you not

I have huge buds on the rhodie at the front door Verd. Alliums all sprouting and the Jap Anems 'Whirlwind' flowering their hats off! Little polyanthus I got for a few quid in spring have  barely stopped flowering all year.

The poor plants are just as confused as we are 

Dinner almost ready - I'm starving. All that grafting's given me an appetite

Glad you had a good time nut. Our walks that weekend made up for it. What made my partner angry was that, as it was a busy time of year, we didn't have many choices of quiet locations in the area, and the blurb for the place was a total pack of lies. He told them when we left though! My 89 yr old Dad could have made a better job of the meal we had that night!

Been outside till 5 o clock! Thought I'd better come in so that the birds could get some food before it was dark - they were looking quite annoyed with me 

More woodwork done and painted, raised bed that I did yesterday planted up and more bulbs in. Getting there.

Would be nice if someone offered to make the dinner but.....what's that pink thing flying overhead..

Fidget - cake is definitely the best thing for your back

No excuse for a dirty room - whatever the price nut.  Bargain basement rooms should still be clean. Name and shame.

My ex partner and I one stayed in a bad hotel - too many things to relate - but we were able to look back on it and laugh - eventually! We were doing two groups of Munroes for the weekend and needed a base, but we baled out after the first night. Fortunately we were accomodated very well further along in the next village! 


Too late to plant bulbs?

clk -If you plant some late flowering perennials where you've planted your bulbs that will give you the colour you want later on. Geraniums, hostas, japanese anemones and sedums are a few which are great for that.  Marking them is the only other way to avoid chopping them. A ring of gravel or twigs is what I usually use.

Morning all. Heavy frost here- but it looks pretty! Just looked at thermometer when feeding the birds and it was -2. Washing going out anyway- it'll freeze then defrost by the time I come home

Too late Verdo...I ate it all. 

Hope the back's better soon fidget. Horrible pain.

Going to put my feet up now.

Night all
