Jeannie-don't try and kid us-that's how the locals in Inverness dress anyway...


Yes, but with half a dozen layers on the rest of the body....

OH says he wants a nymph "surprised whilst bathing" in the garden (he IS joking) I said that she'd be out there for 5 minutes & I'd put a coat over her .  Got to protect her modesty!!

Good Evening FORKERS

When I was young an aunt lived with us & she'd look at my hands "I'll dry up, you can wash - it'll clean your hands"

Don't really "do" seeds, they get leggy or rot & haven't got a heated greenhouse.  I'll only plant the hardy ones, well just scatter them around really, but as the growing season is shorter here I need fast ones! I planted ipomea as soon as I could last year, they grew beautifully strong but only reached 6" high by the autumn.

Mannequins in the garden

There was a male one in a front garden which we drive past on our way out of town, it was naked & had a different pose each time we passed it. Haven't seen it for ages, I had a great urge to give it a wooly hat & scarf in the cold weather!

Thinking about it maybe it wasn't a mannequin but some sort of artist's model as all the joints; fingers, wrists neck etc moved a lot, which a mannequin wouldn't need. Gave us a laugh anyway; not the sort of thing you'd normally expect to find in Inverness!

Today I feel so happy....

That's great news Marion.

What's also great is that you can garden in half an acre & when that's done you're off to find more!!

Not at work, but if I want to do anything I'll have to clear the snow first!

We're not freezing Fairy, it is thawing but bbbb.....cold (compared to the sunshine of recent weeks!)

Nobody's e-mailed me at all, I'm obviously not wanted .

Never mind I'll stay here - you can't get rid of me then .  Or maybe everyone will press the "ignore" button

Oh well I'll have to talk to my self then (te-he) .
