Fraid I' m usually late.  (What's new). Would love to have them for Christmas.  Incidentally the blue ones smell a bit to strongly and not too pleasantly when they are going over.

A great man about town friend of mine admitted that in his childhood a favourite pudding in his house was a Tunnocks marshmallow jobbie with thick Bird's custard poured over!  Can I bring that?

You can put the ones that have flowered in the house this winter in the ground outside, and they will keep flowering for years.  No need to throw them out in other words.

Next to the Vesta curries on the shelf were packets of spaghetti Bolognaise.  inside the box three sachets,  little lengths of pasta,  pink gritty stuff, and a little thing of Parmesan smelling of sick.  Oh, the sophistication of it!!

Orchid lady.  I think you were right originally about the light thing. It would say on the packet of seed if the seed should be on the compost, and seed as variable re their needs for light

This is what you will all call a slow heap!  Compost beautiful and finished in the bin but colonised by ants, a hive I think would be a good word.  I have a look at them whenever on the allotment, and marvel at the industry and the countless tiny grains of soil each processed and individually placed, the eggs and air vents.  I see some out on the plot but I don't think they do any harm.  I can't bear to destroy them and have plenty of compost nearby.  Don't think there will be many to agree with me!
