Great show last night, they are all so good. I agree think it will Peter in the dance off maybe with Kelly?

Might have to have a day off everything to catch up. I usually try and catch the bbc 4 Sat 9pm slot, much better than the yanki action noisy films. I like to hear the wind and the rain when inside cosy. Can't see me even venturing out the front door

Morning everyone, miserable wet and dark here. It's another day in then. Still trying to catch up on series 2 of The Bridge Fairy. 

From the promos for this series, it looks like Martinn ended up in prison? I do love the Scandi dramas on BBC 4, you've just got to concentrate on them

Read back a bit, keep on going with the driving Wonky. I was a late to learn driver and anxious and I only had my driving lessons. My driving instructor kept telling me that I only had to show safe and controlled driving for 30- 40 mins and that I driven the route before without any problems.

I had a really poor lesson before my test and asked him can people pass after a lesson like that? He said it's possible and it was! I passed first time and have never paralleled parked since!

Busy time at the markets, got loads of stuff to sift through never mind the central heatings on and I might get out of my PJs.

Have a good day everyone

I can't image doing another hill before Ben Nevis I think it took me about 16 hours to get up and down. Oh I ached for days, I think it was the coming down that took it's toll on my legs and ankles.

It did take my breath away Fairy, it looked like a magical land

Lovely pictures Fairy. I walked up Ben Nevis many years ago, the scenary was fantastic. On the way up it was really foggy which is just as well really so at least I couldn't see how far it was to go.  On the way down the fog cleared and we saw where we it was beautiful.There was quite a bit  snow on the top in June

Although hubby is now an ex, we had a great holiday so good memories

Deep borders

Foxgloves, Honesty and Sweet rocket might give you some spring flowers. Primoses, cowslips. How fab to be starting a new border. Definatley doing the right thing getting the bulbs in first. It will worth it in a few months time

Cuttings - leave them outside or put them in a cold greenhouse?

Posted: 21/11/2015 at 10:31

My penstemon cuttings are in an open cold frame. I would have thought that the root cuttings of the primrose would handle being outside. I have a small sedum in a pot outside that will get planted out next year.

Some lovely wood there. Must have been a reluctant decision but what a great new space

Plant ID help please

Thanks nut and B3, been out and pulled up a few more annuals so the Lychnis in the ground should get some more light. I didn't image that they would do ok in a slightly shady spot, food for thought if they get too big where they are.

cut flowers

Rudebekias have done well for me this year. It seemed like every seed I sowed germinated. Great cut flowers but long lasting blooms in the garden as well. I love Calendulas and cornflowers
