sounds wonderful Dove.

I thought I'd make a start on lifting dahlias. 

I managed 8 before aching knees won out.

I did offer. And still will.

I have never had lobster,  can t bear the thought of them being dropped into boiling water to kill them.

It's my birthday

Warm Autumn

I remember it as the same though, way back 60 years ago. I used to go out the day after bonfire night picking up dead fireworks, God knows why!!!! Maybe it was warmer in London. But then when we did get the snow it seemed to last for ages, at least in did in 1947 and 1962/3. 

Slugs and snails getting smaller

That is true as well, they are crafty little things, stay out of sight then when you are not looking they come out and gobble up your plants.

Is it gladioli that only grow out of the new bulbs, not the ones they flowered on this year, like Crocosmia, or am I muddling them up with something else.

It costs £12.00 for you, £10.00 for me, you can apply from 1st November to 1st March, then you go in free for as many times as you like through the year, well, up to end of October, so sooner you do it, longer it lasts.

You won't find a policeman down here over 14 years old. I wonder if they are old enough to drive.

Back to slugs, they are not babies, just the type they are, I have some of the biggest  wotsits fat yellow or black ones, they make a real mess when chopped up, but good for the compost.
