No they haven't gone, Becks. When I find the card I'm going to phone the man for a consultation !

Apple doughnuts are my favourite.

I have successfully kept lavender cuttings and small plants in pots for many months until their final home was decided. As long as I remember to water them ...   ;- )

You planning hedging or edging or going into the perfume business?

Practising useful phrases. 'La plume de ma tante est dans le jardin' springs to mind.

2 is definitely quince, probably an ornamental variety as I don't think the truly edible ones are red. Mine's a white one but has identical fruit right now. A while ago I asked on this forum if the fruits could be used for anything. I can't do links yet but if you search for 'quince' then look in the forum bit you should find the thread.

Good moaning from here too.

Sun out, eggs collected, dog delivered to vet for sedation and claw-cutting, half a crossword done, think it's time I did some proper chores.

I agree. When I grew them they were called Acidanthera but I knew they were related to gladdys. I think they're gorgeous and have a very distinctive scent but they only lasted a couple of years for me..

Did you have single canes or what? I use bamboo for most things, even runner beans, but fix three together at the top so they stand like a tripod. For a row of beans, I make two tripods and fix a can from the top of one to the top of the other.

Well, Geoff, at least they've got grownups playing and don't have to field a team of babes in arms like poor old Pompey.

Oooh, thanks, Kate :- ) It's years since I had one of those.

My internet is creeping along at a snail's pace just now. I'm throwing in the towel and going to find that toffee apple.
