Just a quick pop in, frost predicted tonight for S.Yorks, so close GH's and move stuff that is hardening off, if you don't have a GH.  

Think all should check forecast.

Good news Verdun

Andy LOL

OH redeemed himself by digging borders & a bed so new plants and some others now been planted. Delphinium needs growing on only small.

Pdoc hope you've done a good job of that porch.

Verdun, how come I'm never favorite?  Not my fault Delph's have died in the past.

Bill lovely pics and great plants

OL silicone sealant on the cracks ?  and whoever fancied a sink as a pond put plug in and seal with the same.

BFN food to sort out.

Wedding ring found in pocket of gardening jeans worn Sat'.  

After I posted about scrubbing my nails I remembered him rinsing hands under o/s tap, as he was busy he rubbed them dry in his pockets....what !!!   We do have old towels & kitchen roll. Thanks for all suggestions, he is now wearing it through his nose.

Chicky have good day.

Fidget, put SIL's stuff on drive and see if someone nicks it

Thank you for idea Dove

Hi Clari & MrsGarden  & Lily

Dove, he doesn't know. First job is emptying sacks that were going to dump it site, I looked in garden but no joy, not at newsagents either  I doubt we'll find it as it could have been lost anytime in last few days, he's a bit vague as to when he last saw it. I'd miss mine straight away due number of times I have to scrub mucky nails.

MrsGarden I got 6 and 2 of one of them. 7 ???

Thanks Archie I will ask him, sure he will, he's 61 and been going since he was 8.

I can remember being bathed in the sink and knocking on the tiles with a nail rush to the lad next door who got put in their sink at same time as I did...."tell kids these days & they won't believe you"...per Monty Python.  We had progressed then after living in a wet paper bag in the middle of the road

Fidget don't you just family ?   You are slightly more south than me and GH stayed open here last night.

MrsGarden I've counted and have 7 plants, did you nick one? Not planted stuff yet as still blowing a gale here when I got back from Sister's house.

OH well on way home seems his phone broken as no more texts,  good job I packed enough tissues in his rucksack for the 3 of them. 

Lily beetles  This year I have sprayed them, they have still had a go but nothing like last year's chomping.

Think I might have another early night, as I was up at 6.30am with the giddy kipper, I've also remembered not to switch off power to tele as OH has set it to record footie highlights
