Still awake here too. Likely to be for some time. No one told us when we booked this quiet hotel room that the Saturday night disco directly beneath our room goes on until 1am.

I don't suppose there is any chance of a photo of the bulb?

My phormium has no bulb, and the seed pods are long black and dangle like bunches of black thin bananas. I think it looks more like a Lily, maybe lilium henryi, or even a cardiocrinum giganteum.  If it is a cardiocrinum, the main bulb dies, then leaves offsets which have to grow on for a number of years before flowering again.

I have the friend in Perth. She gardens on what is practically pure sand.  She is now back after six months travelling, America, Caribbean, and UK to visit relatives. Her children are all back in USA, where they were born. One is engaged and has a child by a Canadian from st John's in Newfoundland.  I think they are now legally wed, but the wedding (blessing?), will be next August in St John's for family and friends. My friends children all have three passports, born in USA with  British  born parents,and bought up and schooled in Australia, and now naturalized Australian citizens. With that heritage, they are global citizens with itchy feet.

I have in law duties this weekend. 

Hob nail boots on , on Monday, for the pension people. It's my money, I want it ,and I want it now. Just because I've let them play with it for 30 years or so, doesn't mean they can keep it..

Just waiting for breakfast in bed. I see Ken Clarke voted against last night. That's what his constituency voted, and he has already said he is retiring next election.  Did I mention my room mate this week lives a couple of hundred yards from him in Nottingham.?

My brother lives a couple of hundred yards from the beast of Bolsover.  

what is the Chinese proverb..."May you live in interesting times"

We get some lively debates in the kitchen at parties. Champagne or cider?

I love to watch the nut hatches, they seem to go for fat blocks, then sunflower seeds here.

Ragdale hall is lovely, hot water pool for floating in. Not sure about the old bloke in socks and sandals in the sauna, though.

Mostly women in swimming costumes and big fluffy bath robes. We had a talk tonight on how to get nice hands. Where's the undergardener?

Night night all.


Good advice does not come quick

We say it slightly differently.

To be a good gardener, you have to have lots of patience.

I'm sure a jar of that jam would fit in your crimbo stocking, wonky.
