Dove, if you were at this house it would have been OH who had tidied them away, and when he denies it we have to accept that Mr. Nobody who lives here

Great picture Fidget

Lily hope you feel stacks better tomoz'.

Pdoc hugs.

Sir Woody if you write to PM make sure you use your prefix.

Weather very mild here, but been dull with odd bit of sun now windy.

Just back from m's where been raking leaves and chopping up privet cuttings  OH has reduced two buddleia ( brain dead on spelling ) at home as we are told yet again strong winds etc.... from the hurricane Monday ? Tues ? tomoz' ? whenever. Bet it rains tomorrow as I've washing to do.

Now time to cook curry, be rude not to as it's Saturday, nearly put Sunday, don't think tilting head forward has done me much good  never know it might help things as what goes in the front meanas something falls out the back 

Good luck to babysitters & those who are still outside slaving, thought gardening was a hobby

Good morning  Rained overnight but crikey it's 16C outside .

Can't help with the rose Bekkie, I only had two and I've dug them out they were devils for blackspot, rust and anything going  Will eventually have some roses but need somewhere to put them.

Dunno what's on the cards for today, all depends on the weather.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Thanks for the information didsmft  We are about 1,000m above sea level ( I think) and our soil is clay which has been improved over the years. I might have a go at sowing some parsnip in November if I do I will let you know the results.

Verdun, hope you get all the paperwork sorted tomoz'. Been lovely here, not many days like it from now on, expect you will have have quite a few more so will be able to do things in your garden. Hugs to mum.

Can't argue with that Dids   but in Yorks it sadly wouldn't work, soil already too wet and compacted

I've also found parsnip very slow to germinate here, even in March/April. Always used fresh seed so that wasn't the problem. Wish I could get a head start

Clari the GC nearest to me has plenty of garlic selections. Bit far for you to go for a 1.65 quid bulb  If you are about and touring it's the one named after a stately home with the largest frontage in Europe

Lizzie I forgot to say that I hope your arthur feels better today   Also hope Fairy hasn't wrecked herself

I've taken beans down, been weeding & deadheading and have started my 4th Dalek for winter compost stuffs, handy as not too far from backdoor. Old GH cleaned ready for pots that need overwintering.

The last of the nice fingernails have gone and as per usual when in the garden I've got scruffy  Fliss Kendal looked cute with a blob of dirt on her nose, or so OH tells me, I just look like a scruff

Hope Dove enjoyed last night's WA party

Archie your comment earlier about road kill creased me  Hope you've remembered that it is National Curry week    

Hope all have a great evening especially the salt miners

I agree with Bekkie Feb is the "usual" time to sow parsnips but depending on the winter you have had March is often best in the UK.
