On the subject of sprouts, I always thought that I hated them. This stems from my childhood days of preparing Sunday lunch with my Mum and the result being very crunchy al dente sprouts.Not nice

I have since eaten well cooked sprouts and now I love them

Nice sprouts Zippy

Flo- nice avator, I loved Willow the wisp

slugs in the kitchen

I've lived in a very damp property and had slugs comng through the gaps in skirting boards, they are vile disgusting creatures, especially indoors.

I would put some slug killer/pellets down, I coped with them on the carpets and just threw them outside but in the kitchen cupboards................

I have a couple of large sturdy coldframes- thanks for advice J, might use the tea light/pot and the black plastic bottles if it gets very cold.

Some lovely pictures,especially liked the shot of the steps and stepping stones leading up to the lawn.

Good luck with the NGS next year. I'm sure another poster on here does the same

I know what you mean about the lack of day light but I do enjoy the changing of the seasons. Looking forward to New Years Day

I have a few Cyclamen, though not sure what type. Had some flowers a few weeks ago but all leaves now.

I think my snapdragons might make it and some wallflowers, touch and ago with the Rudebekias, some of gone with the frost but some are still alive
