My Perfumed Bristol Garden in 2016.

Same to you. Joyce.  I do so much enjoy your comments.  I have been out in the garden as it is 10 degrees here in Bristol today and quite calm.  I planted the last of my tulips and potted on some pot bound alpines.

Oh Thank you, thank you, BBC, "Saving Mr. Banks" was just wonderful.  I laughed, cried, danced and sang, And left the world behind to live the life of the characters - all of them.  What a story!  What a cast!  The remaining Xmas programs will not surpass this.  So glad it is on three times!

Same to you GWRS and to all my "followers" on this thread.  Stay safe out of the wind and keep warm if you are up North.

I call it my "Healthy" Xmas cake Joyce,- no royal icing, some sugar in the recipe omitted and grated carrot for sweetness, Some fat omitted and replaced with grated Bramley to give a moist texture. Five eggs instead of four. Could not find a substitute for the brandy though.

Postman brought two cards - one from a Botanic garden friend had seeds impregnated on coloured paper for me to sow, paper and all, the other had a packet of Chinese Foxglove seeds in it from a FB friend.  Two nw experiences lined up already for 2017 to add to my Alpine Tapestry Garden venture!

Thanks Joyce, I may get round to it - removing the pollen I mean as it can be indelible if landing on clothes!
