2015, here we come!

Posted: 28/12/2014 at 17:01

Every year I get the same feeling, Christmas has gone New Year almost upon us. So, let's fast track January and get to the end of February when I start to sow, indoors, my French Marigolds. When does your  'new year' start?

See you later work, two weeks off!

Hi Edd,

Just seen this on the BBC website

me too, finished Friday at 1pm. When down the pub for a quick Guinness then the bus home. Hopefully they will be some nice bright days to enjoy pottering in the garden. Winter Solstice, shortest day today, starts getting lighter a minute a day from tomorrow.

again, lots of good advice. Love your photo Busy, gives me something to aim for next year. I normally keep mine in pots, but your trough display is wonderful!

Hopefully over the Christmas I'll deadhead my pansies and violas. Can I still feed them or do I now wait til spring?

When cleaning my border, I found growing a wee holly tree. It must have germinated from next doors berries. I carefully dug it up and put it in a pot. It still looks OK. Will it start growing again in the spring?

Kindle e readers

Posted: 10/12/2014 at 12:06

I have had my Kindle Fire since May and I use it every day.

Pros, A good clear e-reader, quick for reading emails, good internet access, good app choice

Cons, does not support peer to peer roaming, so you need to be near a wifi hotshot to access internet.

Still the Kindle Fire HD 7" is a good buy for me
