nutcutlet, I know that feeling.

blairs- do you grow from seed? It's loads cheaper but comes with additional dangers

Think my gardening resolution will be to move my seedlings on a lot quicker and maybe not to sow too many Although I think I will try and stick to the first

 

Toads

My pond, I think,should now be called more of a damp ditchalthough it's fairly deep in places. Some steps have been added to aid entry/exit.

I've have scooped out loads of leaves during the Autumn, but am leaving it to its own devices now. Around the pond/ditch is a woodland area that I've been developing so I'm hoping the toads  are tucked up under a wood pile.

I'm not inclinded to do much clearing as others have said i think there is  much life hibernating at the moment.

Lovely newts budlia63, it's great when wildlife finds a way into our gardens

 

Seed swap

Sam and nutlet- I agree we are bit ahead of the game with seed swopingbut might have a look at the forum when it gets going. I love growing from seed so would be quite happy discussing how my seeds are doing

Hello fraserh31- I'm thinking the seed swop has only just started

Hi Bev, I would be interested in the cowslips and the corncockle seeds. Is there anything particular plants or seeds that you are thinking of for next year?

Apart from loads of commercial packaged seeds, I  have some small mixed sweet william plants and some small mixed sweet rocket plants. Both were sown in the late summer and are being overwintered in my coldframe so might just flower this year 

Does any one have any spare Aubretia seeds that they would be willing to swop?

 Hi bjay

I finally did my christmas shopping today and it went remarkably well. (Im a leave it to the last minuite in everything in life). Got every thing I wanted and the only person that annoyed me was a taxi driver threatening to call the police with the threat of a £75 if I parked in a so called taxi rank I don't do the whole shop thing that well at the best of times

I love Christmas Eve and throughly enjoyed Lady & The tramp, been a very long time since I last saw it and it was great, those old Disney films often bring a tear to my eye.

Plenty of "screaming & shouting" on tonight ( Corrie & Eastenders) to those that enjoy it.
