Nice walk along the river, even if we did have to go the opposite way , because the towpath was flooded along one section. The Trent was pretty high, and the golf course looked really nice, all the sand traps were filled with water, and the water table is so high, there were new lakes all over it. I presume all the golfers were at the 19th hole, none to be seen anyway.

I've removed the 7ft teasels, they were a bit battered by now. I noticed that weeds were germinating all over, mainly chickweed, but the dandelions are on their way up.

I hope everyone being battered by the wind is safe and warm.

seeing as it's sunny, OH wants a walk out in the sunshine (as opposed to yesterdays rain and wind). So I'll see you later.

Verdun are you OK in cornwall, and how is punkdoc?

Back from dropping Panda at station.  It was wet and windy while we were looking round the woods, we retired to the marquee for food, at which point it threw it down.  Back to the car to empty the boot of plants, and then as we got half way down the drive, the sun came out!!. Then we had a walk around my garden, and then to station. The wind is getting up again, but apart from the small flood we drove through on the way back, we seem to have it mild here compared to the rest of the country.

Hope you are safe, Verdun, and all those in the worst of it.

Can I move a foxglove now ?

Same as Bob. I move quite large ones out of veg patch, into final position in borders.I just take it with as much soil as it carries and plonk it in. Water in and bobs your uncle.

 If you're under water, I would wait until the soil is better condition.

OK everyone. 1pm , outside cafe. you have my number in case of late/lost etc. Check your PM's.

Dont forget the odd socks.

Verdun, I think I would have had a rant too.  I saw the bit on benefits street, where the couple had bags of food from the food bank, and he was sorting it, thats ok, I dont like that, I end up screaming at it, "but the kids might like it!!".

On a better note.... Hows the car?  Have you polished it yet?

 Punkdoc, i have PM'd you.

I hope your house is OK. Have you got enough bags?
