Fork Handles

I hate not knowing where they are (spiders that is).

It's stopped raining now but there has been a bit of flooding in our locality.  Not my house because I am sensible and live at the top of a slope and not down near the seafront.

It was dry here until about an hour ago and is now drizzling.  I sowed more beans yesterday in the vain attempt to get some to grow.  Memories of last year's wonderful crops keep coming back to haunt me as I look at my empty wigwams.  This year they keep being eaten by slugs/snails or dug up by next door's cat.

They are the norwegian blue of the bean kingdom.  Ex-beans.  Beans & gone.  Has-beans.

There is a nice pink sunset happening here at the moment, although the forecast is rain for tomorrow.  I will choose to believe in the sunset and ignore the Beeb weather report.

You were lucky to have beetroots.  All of mine were completely eaten by snails (along with the lettuce, carrots, radishes and peas).

The wind snapped two branches off one of my rose bushes but luckily not the same bush that suffered before.  I have a lovely red rose which, on previous windy days, had lost all of its branches.  It has put up two new stems which miraculously managed to survive the latest onslaught.

Fed up with this wind.   Honeysuckle getting blown all over the place and pots keep blowing over.

I love the sound of crunching snails underfoot in the evening.  (the only good snail is a dead snail)

I can't stand the rain against my window


Autumn sown sweet peas

To prove David's point about the hardiness of sweet peas, here is a photo of sweet pea seedlings in my garden in December 2010:


And here they are a few days later:

My autumn sown SP's have started flowering now.  It lifts my heart every year when I see the first blooms open.  This year I have grown some in a big pot at the front of my house too.  I only normally grow them in the back garden.

Oh yes, it does.   Your cat looks very happy!
