Re Last GW of the year. Surely there must be something gardening wise to fill a slot once a week, even if it's only gardens we have visited. The national collection holders would be a start. Follow that with National garden scheme openers. A rerun of how to propagate plants for free. Any other ideas? I probably should start a new thread on this.
Things to do in Winter...
Well the garden has yet to be put to bed. Dahlias are still flowering, I don't lift until after first frost. Leaves seem to drop off the leaves later and later. Our brown bin collection stops far too early also. I don't bin grass cuttings or prunings, but anything diseased goes in and tap roots. Neighbours who don't compost, have a bin full of grass cuttings going slimy until spring.
The road sweeper came around yesterday. The bin men came this morning. Bits blowing around again.
The American presidential election seems to have degenerated into who has the least mud stick. I have no idea what their policies are. I don't get a vote, but my friends three children were all born there, currently living there, and are as confused as anyone else. Do they vote for the one they hate the least. Why isn't there a box on polling cards to say "None of the above". At least we have monster raving loony party if you want to cast a protest vote.
