I've got deja vu.....

Think we've been here before with this. 

Hello Forkers . November 2017

Morning all/afties Pat. Pretty flowers - I have some white Nigellas with dark purple anthers - I'll have to find a better place for sowing them next year though. 

Oh BL - that's hellish. Where is the common sense. If you were someone 'important' I bet that wouldn't happen. Easy to say don't worry, but of course you will be doing exactly that. I hope it gets sorted soon  for you. Hugs for you as well as doc.

 Sharp frost here but it's above zero now. Grass is sparkly. Still haven't brought those pelargoniums in, but they're absolutely fine. Just shows they can withstand a few frosts no bother if they're tucked against a wall in the rain shadow. 

Chicky - not long now! Are you, by any chance, a little excited?   

I'll have a quick look round before I defrost the car and head off. Have a good day everyone

I think I should look into them both Philippa. They sound exactly what I need in the ruckie on a long day. Perhaps I could have the Garcinia heated up now that we're into snow weather, and anything that prevents 'localised chafing' on the thighs sounds good.....

Where do I sign up?

Hope you're not feeling   if it's a bit choppy Liri  

Think the forecast is looking good for tomorrow at least

Lovely pix GD. The  harebells have been really successful  

I still have a few flowering here too.  Still have all my pyracantha berries Joyce. The blackies haven't needed them yet. 

Here is my enormous second flush of flowers on clematis Miss Bateman.....

I would. They're small and you couldn't put them outside now that they're in a greenhouse. They would never survive. 

Just keep them ticking over -  don't over water - as they'll be dormant and won't be doing much for the next few months. Look at them now and again to check that they're ok

I thought I'd be generous Dove, since I haven't been on since yesterday, but I know bulls**t  when I see it ......

Evening all.

Hugs doc - we have plenty to spare whenever you need 'em.

Chilly here just now - about four when I came in at 5pm,  so I think we may get a touch of frost tonight too Obs. I still haven't brought some of my Lord Bute pelargoniums in, but they've managed the recent three or four frosts.It hasn't been lower than about minus three or four anyway, and they're perfectly fine and flowering well. They'll just have to get on with it.

I've no time for people who evade tax - avoidance is slightly different, and if you can legally pay a bit less, I can't see that many people wouldn't do that. 

Off for a look round with a cuppa, and then I'd better make the dinner...

Thought I'd accidentally clicked on WeightWatchers for a moment there..

I'm now waiting for the advert Philippa......

No - it makes no difference would be my answer (in case it's a genuine query) but then again, it depends on the kind of 'gardening' you do.

Morning all/afties Pat. The wood burner would be handy here!

Cars all look frosted and a lovely sunrise here. I don't get a good enough site here to get sunrise photos though. The 'Ben' had lost most of her snow by the time I came home LP.  On the south side anyway. She'll get more soon though. I was thinking of doing Ben Venue recently - not been on that for a long time  

Dach - the plant just needs it's tlc by the look of it. I'm sure it'll recover
