Morning  Grey and overcast here today - no frost though.

Lost - absolutely loved it although I got a little lost myself and true to my handle , I guessed the ending. Stick with it Becks.

Watched Skyfall last night and thoroughly enjoyed it - Was a bit miffed though. Didn't see any clips of Daniel Craig in speedos. Suppose Geoff will have to do.

Late brekkie for me  - consumed far too much chocolate last night .

Son wants to go Liverpool today and as he's car - less at the moment we have been roped into taking him. (Well, Oh has - no way I would drive there ) Not particularly looking forward to it - not keen on busy places and large towns.

Going to see if I can wriggle out of it and try catch up on some jobs outside. Here's hoping.

Have a good day forkers.

I re-potted all mine 2 weeks ago and stiil haven't watered them. Think the water holds in new compost and also as Bookertoo says they do like to be kept on the dry side.

Will be giving all mine a dose of salts in a couple of weeks time. Epsoms that is.  Does wonders for leaf colouration and healthy plants.

My mind is totally addled today, Verdun  Love your photos . Mine looks a bit of a tip as we haven't managed to finish off the new bed .

Still, Rome wasn't built in a day.

I so hate vine weevils - found one in the conservatory last year in an African violet - had to check everything in there.

Are they suffering from lack of water, Lady G ? I had to water most of my pots today as it's been dry here for nearly a week ( for a change ! )

Failing that I would tip them out and have a look at the roots - see if the dreaded vine weevil has took up residence. I do this every year about this time as the little blighters seem to love mine.
