We're doing a cheese board,(in laws family get together weekend )so there will be lots to snack on should we get stuck, not to mention the huge christmas box of chocs from Hotel Chocolat, and some alcoholic refreshments. I have a new down filled parka for my chrissy present and Yaktrax to try out if it gets bad.

We are off to Bonnie Scotland for the weekend, just North of St Andrews. We know there is no snow there or here, its the bit in the middle I'm worried about. Presents wrapped. Flasks ready to be filled, snow shovel ready for boot. I guess I will be be able to test the thermals I bought for the Arctic expedition in January.

Time to take it out. You cant take the top out and have a decent shape.  They look silly if you lollipop them.

As you say, they will grow bigger. They may not be hardy. Have you tried Woolmans for chrysanth cuttings. Order in the winter for delivery in the Spring.

We found a lost and found bird of prey site. They know who the owner is and have given him our postcode.  Apparently they tend to stay in the vicinity. I put a chicken carcass in the middle of the lawn to see if hes interested. Apparently a Northern Goshawk... 22 to 24 inches tall and a 48 inch wing span. Or as hubby says, a chuffing big bird. I hope the neighbours keep their miniature Yorkshire Terrier in, its probably getting hungry by  now.
