What a good idea to use them for support Joyce. I've only used them to protect before, bulbs, catmint etc. It would work well for bushy, low growers. Think I'll pick up some extras in the poundshop this spring.
I don't do hanging baskets anymore, too much hassle to keep watered, only have a couple of rusty, crusty old ones left.
I need to get a move on now and carry on with the room clearing. The plan is to get it completely empty, apart from the bed, then a good deep clean and a fresh lick of paint before the "wardrobe men" arrive. Wish me luck

I gathered all my bulb pots near to the back door last week. Lots peeping through. No sign of the 'minnow' yet, think the squirrels were digging up in that one, it's now covered with an upsidedown hanging basket.

This weekend has wiped me out, need more tea ☕☕☕☕☕

Ohh, if it's a movie, what about TRADING PLACES.
Wishful thinking as I've seen more movies than I've read books

A little late but, evening all
Finally got a bit of peace by.........going to bed. Ha, ha
Puzzle guess. TURNING THE TABLES? HEADLESS?

Whoop, whoop . Well done Lants👍🙌
And a third "Happy Birthday Daisy" from me

Afternoon all. You've all been having fun I see
Busy weekend with the family here, just popped in for Daisy's birthday wishes and mucked it up good style on the birthday thread (again).
So........ Happy Birthday Daisy .
Here's your epic song (minus the picture that caused all the trouble)

Hope you're having a very happy birthday 🎂🎁💐

In the past I've used gaffa tape on a rattling letterbox . Ended up replacing it.
My Kindle posts halfway through my typing too Runny, it's very annoying
Did someone say DREAMIES
P.S. You need the volume on for the full effect

SCISSOR SISTERS? SHY BOY? A STRIKE TO THE HEART?

Glorious sunshine, blue skies and......slush here in Manchester

Well done Vorderman with the numbers 🏆🎓.
( 😡stoopid pigs, lettin' me down 👎)
I shan't sulk, but celebrate your mighty brain 🎉🎉🎉
Now back to the books📚. SPILT IN HALF? CHILDHOOD SWEETHEARTS? BLACK MAGIC KILLER?

Morning Tetley, you must have the nice kind of fluffy snow round your way if the dogs are playing in it . Ours is rapidly turning to slush, yuk. Nice bright sunshine though
Very true about the work ethic Runny. That's a very long day for your GD, hope the commute isn't too stressful. She sounds like a very hardworking young lady to put in all those hours. You must be very proud 👍
My daughters "early" shifts start at 3.30am but she will be home by lunchtime. I couldn't do it now but used to do the dawn market buying when I was a full time florist. My mum also did odd shifts when she worked as an air traffic controller at the airport, it must be in the genes
I wonder if the snowfall has made Tiggs extra excited this morning. Good luck Lants.

Nah Joyce, feeling a bit like a zombie on autopilot. I don't know how you do it and still stay awake past tea time. Just finished an early breakfast, don't usually eat til 11am, hope it gives me some energy.
Ouch, PP! Did you knock all the sequins off your spangly leotard when you fell
13 Jan 2017 06:25
Ha, Thing1 has already left for work. Early shift at the airport.
OH should be getting up for work soon, I may sneak back under the covers then, probably won't sleep though.

Morning Joyce. Second mug is brewing right now
Think the south has had more snow than us oop north. Hope it's not too icy out.
13 Jan 2017 05:31
Morning all. Been awake since about 4 and can't nod off again. Having a Joyce style brew☕
There was heavy snow falling last night when I went to bed but seems it's mostly gone this morning. Looks like a thin crust of crunchy stuff left.
Hope all goes well for your friend Joyce.

Still think I'm right with 100 pigs. The wording of the puzzle doesn't say the farmer has to buy assorted animals.
It's designed to make you over think the answer, like "As I was going to St Ives".
Have fun with the numbers if you think I'm wrong
Nodding off on the sofa, so I'll call it a night
12 Jan 2017 21:18
Hi B3, it's gotta be 100 pigs 🐷
Edit: meant to add zero cows and zero geese.
