That's interesting Chicky, I always notice how it drinks a lot for the first couple of days or so then hardly ever needs topping up.

We get a Nordmann & saw off about 3" from the bottom before fixing it into the holder/reservoir.

Have tried to select several, but it seems to be taking an age for them to show on the screen - the "insert an image" box accepts the ref no of the piccy but does nothing. I tried a few more, all from different folders in case that made a difference, but it only put this one up - the earliest.

Kept trying to upload, but nothing is happening.

I'm not very pc literate; I need a ten year old!!

Oh, it's come out now, I tried turning it but it obviously hasn't. (the poles are the base of a raised bed), so please lean to the left!!.  Cobweb earlier in the year.

Oh, nothing, I'll have another try here.

 Oh, it defaulted back to my last reply, the pic was shown on the "insert an image" box but not showing here.

Hmm, I selected a piccy, pressed "upload" & nothing happened - either that or when I submit this a couple will appear several times each !!!

What's the weather like in your area?

calm here . but in december we are stoping at  a lighthouse on the west coast of scotland and we are praying for bad weather

If you're into photography Archie, a December storm in Scotland will provide some boiling seas & stunning seascapes.

But don't forget the saying "be careful what you wish for" though!!

Started gloriously sunny but by early afternoon was a bit windy, showery & generally not very pleasant so I came in.  Then cousin came round with trailer load of chips & finally (3 years after moving in) we can walk round the garden dry-shod, although we'd had carpet down to keep the weeds at bay.

The weather woman thinks that for once we'll miss the storm here, oh well, I'm sure we'll get a few before the winter's done!!

Good luck to all those in it's path.

Glorious day here today (sorry  to those who had rain).

Moved a gold-coloured conifer (can't remember the name, but gc's & supermarkets sell them for £2-£3), it's about 3' high now.  Problem was, that I discovered some evil looking roots & dug down & down & down.....  Managed to remove most but had to leave 2 bits, hmm, I wonder what little horror will appear next year ?? 

They're like thin, white, brittle carrots.

Ah well, must go & get ready to go out.

Poached this morning!

4th Panda, Square sausage is not allowed in this house!!  I bought a couple of squares once, put them under the grill - couldn't believe the amount of fat swilling round the grillpan afterwards .  Makes a "Glasgow salad" (ie bowl of chips) seem positively healthy!!
