Good day

My Mum used to do the White Rabbit thing - from London

Sorry not here yesterday, computer GRRRRRR, couldn't use it all day and felt very fed up.

Up and running now but still not right. Between 11.30 last night and this morniing it managed to pick up another nasty Wasn't using it either.

I was trying to keep an eye on something on Ebay as well!

I have potted on some cuttings, probably too late but never had any success before, and they had good roots. Next thing is how to keep them alive over winter!

Trying to tidy house - visitors coing to stay tomorrow - not very good at that. Does mean I won't be around over the weekend either.

Did think of a pig but not sure what the neighbours would think! For that matter my garden wouldn't stand it either. there are pigs put in the local wood round about  now, but no ponies.

Will just have to keep raking and binning, once the bin has been emptied


Love cyclamen Bev

Colours were red and amixed sort of stripey (not persian carpet)

We have squirrels but this is one huge tree, would love to see a Jay here.

You can send them over here please.

Good to see you Verdun

I hate acorns, have been raking them up, filled the brown bin with them, some of them are already germinating - grrrr

Is there a way of composting them as they do root very easily? do not have a shredder!

I grew wallflowers from seed this year for the first time some were small, but it did mean I could choose the colourway- I have planted them out and they seem to be going from strength tp strength. I was surprised how easy they were.


Sorry forgot my manners again - Morning All
