Evening everyone, as usual it has suddenly dawned on me that the festive season is upon us

I do have a tree but it's completly bare and is found very frequently on the floor being dragged around. I have taken pics of the culprits but for some reason, even though I know the pic is on the phone, my laptop can't see them. I do have a very short attention span to technical problems, but will try again

Looking forward to the results show of the dancing, but very intrigued how how to watch the show in real time?

How come my smilies don't have the Santa hat?

Bees in garden

I grew the white Cosmos for the first time this year and saw the same as you the bees loved them. Mine were very late in flowering as the Summer was awful but when then did grow..........they can get to be tall plants. Will grow them again next year

I had a huge amount of large bumblies attracted to the snapdragons, got lots of enjoyment watching the bees bums as they fought their way in

Hi Becks, they are lovely, sweet things, although the xmas tree is a bare one, one of them got tied up in the lights and of course tinsle and baubles.............

Watched "Triangle"  in the week, worth a watch I think, would be classed as a horror, but for me more of a psychological thriller.

Turned the TV off, as it was rubbish, Radio 6 mix much better

You can't have too many mushroom bags

Thing is with those bags if you put too many mushrooms in the bags split, now I see it's much better to spread the purchase over a couple of bags

Hi J, I have a couple of fuschias in the garden, one I know to be hardy as it has come through 2 Winters so far, with very little care or attention. I've not mulched around the plant before but might do a little this year as I would hate to lose it

The other has more delicate, smaller paler flowers which was sold to me as hardy....... I'm not convinced ..............but time will tell

Thanks for all your replies. Spring time it is then. I'm assuming you can clearly see the new growth emerging and then you cut the old growth back?
