The forecast, which should show five days detailed, is only showing one day, (today)

Is it just mine or anyone else noticed the same?

My Bristol Garden in 2015

Same weather here Marion, 3·3 at the moment with promise of sleet, I feel sorry for the people who took the chance and sowed seeds this week!

-your Hellebore above looks promising, mine are just beginning to pop open, very slow this year and the snowdrops havent opened at all, still standing straight. I have a photo of them from last year 18th Jan, all fully opened.

Do you have to pay yet for your green waste to be collected, ours is still free at the moment?

I fancy the Limelight, I bought a little Vanilla Fraise a couple of years ago from Parkers, only 6.99 and last summer had quite a few flowers, very pretty colour change. This year should be much better.

Also sow some more in Spring, the ones you sowed in the Autumn should have been sown in the open ground, they would then come up very tough, doing their natural thing

Lobelia/Pratia pedunculata or Blue Star Creeper

You must persevere with the cuttings, its so pretty and what a lovely big clump.

I had the Lobelia Richardii which doesn't grow from seed, I layered it, I don't know if yours would take the same, just pull out strands and peg it to the ground. May not work but worth a try.

Last time I was away was in the early 90's a few days at the Appleby horsefair.

I have what I need, a place to live, loving family and healthy.

Anyone read the Desiderata, we read it every morning, like a prayer.

Very strong winds today but its 8c outside, so cant complain.

Waiting for nurse to take blood sample from mum, cant see iron tablets clearing her chest, doctor knows best!
