Plan is looking good Perki , I have had a few gardens and have always just plonked things in, probably would have had a better effect with a bit of forethought. They are such great plants jo aren't they? Just keeps on flowering

Well done Kevin for following your dream. No one wishes they spent more time in the office. I don't work full time anymore but I do work for myself which is great. Hope it brings continued happiness

Rudbeckia-the plants that gives pleasure for 4 months plus some.

I've had a very successful year with the Ruddies, saved some seed last year and most of them germinated and have given me lovely flowers for months. They are coming to an end now.

I was going to dig up those that gave me the nicest flowers but haven't got around to that yet. So most likely they will have to take their chances along with everything else.

I've had plants that have lasted a few years so hopefully some will pull through

HELLO FORKERS!

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

HELLO FORKERS!

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 were..............wow 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
