Quite so pansy. Perhaps you should suggest it to them!

Catching up on the tennis after a brisk walk to get some carrots for soup, and a short spell in the garden.  Will be away walking tomorrow so got a few things done that needed attention. The temp crept up to three or four so it wasn't too bad as long as I was moving about. 

Passed two large yews on my walk - covered in gorgeous red berries. They must have been around thirty feet. Never really noticed them before, but I rarely walk along that road. Birds were enjoying them 

RB - I know you can't divulge info, but it clearly needs proper investigation, so hopefully that's what will happen. I think I can safely say we're all thinking of you and hope your son gets the result needed.

John - those are beautiful pix. As BL said - very hard work to produce that, but what a result!  

The sunset is just gorgeous.

LP - you're really struggling   Is there any assurance it will get better?

Oh doc. That's really not funny. Is that cutbacks?

As obelixx says - it's the cold they can't cope with. They're not hardy up here so I would have to lift them - couldn't be bothered - or else treat them as annuals, which is what I did when I grew them. I kept them undercover in pots until it was warm enough to plant them out, and they flowered in late summer.  I was lucky with the summer weather in those years though - in normal years they'd probably have been later!

DD - I'm worn out just reading what you do, and what you plan to do
