Pottie pam, you may be able to tell us. I know many films have been filmed on Burgh Island, but I thought last night that the island was a different one. Does anyone know where last night ATTWN was filmed?

Nice shed. Make sure it has a good lock on it. Store pots, bags of compost, fertiliser, and garden tools in it. Also useful to keep garden furniture in over winter.

Do you want to lose it in the background, or paint it like a beach hut and make it more prominent?

I like Priscilla. It does well here but the pink is a bit paler than yours. That may be due to your higher temperatures giving a more intense colour.

Pat, the Agatha Christie was And then there were none.  It is based on a childrens rhyme which has been changed to ten little soldiers, also called ten little indians, but that got changed in america, not pc enough.  Ten people on an island, die one by one. All of them had got away with murder, and finally bought to justice. 

It has been done as a play in London, also filmed with alternative endings. It has also been used a basis for many other films not attributed to Agatha Christie, just using the plot idea.  

The major attraction was Aiden Turner in a towel.

 Good Morning everyone, we have blue skies here.

Bar six used to be made by Terrys of York. A sort of kit kat copy. Long gone now, along with their 1767collection at Christmas, and the blackcurrant pastilles.

After it finishes flowering, keep it in a sunny position, it will die back to a corm. Next autumn, start watering again and feed it, it should flower again.
