I can see you , Hazel.

I must be getting yours. I ticked no notifications because it blocks up my email. I still get loads.

Dry but very windy here. The eucalyptus is doing a lot of waving about.

I've just fleeced the lemon in the frost free greenhouse, and shoved a couple more plants in the unheated polytunnel.  I hope the polytunnel doesn't decide to go flying again. Getting it back out of my garden was one thing. The neighbours might not be so keen.

Do you have an allotment?

Most allotment associations have a system to bulk buy (one seed order) and compost by the pallet,  and then pass on the savings to others.

That reminded me. I bought a Kojo-no-mai from Ashwood last year (I must keep away from that place, it does my bank balance no good at all).  I bought it because at the time there was a big one in flower near the restaurant and it was absolutely smothered in honey bees. Mine is a small one in a six inch pot. I must find it a nice pot to bring it on in. I just checked, it is still in my "holding area" ( until I find a space for it.) I've pushed it in the unheated polytunnel for a bit of protection.  The buds are already swelling.

I think the BBC has a lot of wannabees who want to step into his shoes.... Not a chance. When he goes, the whole wildlife loving world will mourn.

I've just watched David Attenborough on the great barrier reef.  Its amazing. 40 years ago I used to watch things like that and dream that one day that would be me. My father always said I would be disappointed. My grandmother said I could do anything I put my mind to.

I sat there today, and watched him on Lizard island, Osprey reef and the Yongala.

I've dived on Osprey reef for a couple of days, Lizard Island on three separate trips, and the Yongala on two trips.   Been there, done that and got the T shirt.

Now I just need that submarine to go down a couple of hundred metres instead of a 100 feet.  Never satisfied , thats me...

Steve, there is a scam.  Someone pays in a substantial amount, then a request comes for you to transfer it to a certain account, then the original transfer is recalled.

I would talk to your bank in person, and definitely don't transfer any money via any phone or email requests.

Fantasy garden

Other papers have fantasy football, or fantasy portfolio. As we can't do much in our real gardens at this time of year, let us have a fantasy garden
