Washing fleece

Rather than risking the washing machine, dunk it in the sink and do it by hand.  Do it on a dry day so you can hang it on the line to drip dry.

Grass still growing

As I write this my neighbour is cutting his grass.

I'm not going to be tempted to do mine though as I should be busy writing my 'foreign' Christmas cards (about 12) as tomorrow is the last posting day for them.

What are your favourite native flowers?

I have about the same length at the bottom of my garden which was badly overlooked when we first lived here and I have grown a mixture of yew, holly, pyracantha and laurel.  We are now not overlooked but it took a few years to achieve.  Don't forget that you may have to trim it in the future.

Lily-of-the-valley where do you grow yours?

Mine are in a very shady area, in fact it hardly gets any sun.  A friend gave me a small clump some years ago and they did take a while to get going.  Now they are lovely and are spreading which I don't mind one bit.

Talking about pig muck - I always think it smells like the Plasticine we use to play with at school donkeys years ago.

Yippee - just noticed that our Forum pictures are back.

They have probably been back for ages and I have just woken up from a deep sleep.

This is cheating as it's not my garden but I took this photo on Tuesday walking in the Forest and it looks so typically November with the low sunshine.
