Gorgeous Iris Pat. I used to grow a Parahebe in my garden round the corner from here. Not sure why they're not more widely grown. It was very pretty, and survived our high rainfall. I did have it in a well drained sheltered spot though. 

Lovely pic Steve.

Morning people 

Lesley - give her a pair of scissors and tell her to do it herself....

You're obviously feeling a bit better jo 

fidget - towels 

No door knockers here either - thankfully - in fact - it was very quiet. Must all have been at parties or summat. I only had liquorice - don't think they'd have appreciated that anyway 

Too early to be discussing Hosta's nether regions - I'm having my porridge 

Weather looking fair for my walk so I'll have a quick look round before I head off

Have a lovely day everyone 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Like GWRS, I got out in the afternoon once it cleared up. Planted tulips,  deadheaded dianthus and alliums, picked a strawberry or two, painted another bit of the shed, and emptied a pot of vine weevils into a border...

so then I had to gather the whole lot up and spread it around on paving for the birds 

On the plus side, it was nice and sunny till about 4pm, Dennis the robin had a feast, and I took some photos

Christmas cake is really the best bit about Christmas, Steve. I'd happily just have that for dinner 

Well - maybe after some home made cranberry sauce, bread sauce and roast potatoes

Nobody to leave jobs to here, so if I don't do it, it doesn't get done 

I wash pots if they're really manky, but only when I need one. I don't have some immaculate stack of them. 

I wipe things like secateurs, and give them a quick spray of oil, but not other tools. I should sharpen them though 

I'll do it later features quite heavily here too Lesley. Trouble is, later doesn't happen  

Although I like a good tidy up of the messy shed corner when it gets too messy, and I put things off only because I've usually done something else more urgent. That's my story and I'm sticking to it..

Have a good time Dove...has she gone? I had to go out and get loo roll 

Lovely arrangement T'bird 

I don't really like marzipan - except when it's attached to a Christmas cake 

Had to google Arne Dahl - a Scandi drama I've missed

Look at the shiny shiny Hosta...well clean and waxy anyway...


 'Smug face' smiley needed.  If only they always looked like that though....  

That robin's stuffing his little fat chops!
