are they day trips David or are you staying for a few days ? we have had a lot of heavy rain over the last few days so a lot of trees have lost there leaves but as you say the scenery is stunning and now we are both able we do have lots of days out and never tire of it and despite living here all our lives we can still find places we have never seen before although we do avoid the lakes in the high tourist season and go east into Yorkshire

i gave up the weed about seven years ago after smoking for nearly 40 years it wasnt the first time i had tried but i am so glad i succeeded i feel so much better apart from what i must have saved i dont know how much they are now but i could get through forty a day. so good luck dolgarrog try to have a list of small jobs you can do when its all getting a bit much and your tempted it is amazing how quickly te urge goes away if you occupy your mind with something else, i tried to avoid the things and places that were associated with smoking for a few weeks.

again good luck

i forgot to say when i plant my brassicas i plant deep and next to the sprouts i put a cane with a small empty plastic bottle on top so i dont poke my eye out and if i need to tie them up its easy but most times they seem happy just lean on the cane

hi pentillie i think mine are late because of a lack of water but we are on a private supply and if we have prolonged spells of dry weather and our waterbutts are empty i cant use so much in the garden so things just have to take there chances most things catch up and i havnt lost anything this year  yet 

they might drown now
