Have to say the conversation is very 'interesting' at the moment

Lovely autumn afternoon - trying to get ahead of myself now - have mulched hardy fuchsias, dug up a couple of large dahlias, leaving some others well mulched in.

Re-discovered my hellebores, pleased as couldn't see any black spot and have put my first ever leaf mulch on them (2 years in the 'brewing') still not brilliant but will do.

Day shopping with daughter tomorrow followed by a festive afternoon tea at a well known GC

Good Day

That clematis looks great - I just haven't any more room for them apart from a white one (or two). Can't squeeze them in where there isn't climbing space.

We had a teacher whi made a very inappropiate comment to my daughter. about her attitude (unpleasant words) she was very upset. I reported it to a senior teacher (unofficially) who we knew and tackled the teacher face to face at a paremts evening. He seemed surprised we were upset!! - Teacher lft school after another term - seems he had been 'inappropiate' to others s well

Had MRI scan - now can we leave it at that for now _ I know you are all with me but unless I say when I come on here it is gardening and general chat I need (normality)

Thank you every one.

I know I have a long struggle, I still don't feel very positive, BUT i feel that I will get through it. It's the waiting for the MRI scan now that is bugging me but in fact everything is moving very quickly, and the not knowing how bad it is.

One thing though is that I never have and do not feel ill, and am healthy, but that is the nature of the beast I think

And I do have my escape route into the garden

Op before Christmas. No pressies bought as I write

Surprising what raking a huge amount of leaves can do to a person!!!!!

Now to continue the tidy up

Verdun there's still a cloud above me, but have to get on with my life and hope for the best.

Any way I'm usually quite cheerful

Good day

Lovely bright sunny if a little chilly day. Raking leaves, bubble wrap into GH - I only cover the louvres and wrap up the tender ones in a cheap plastic GH inside the main one, worked last year. Still need to do the fuchsias they are inside but not checked and downsized.

Thanks for support yesterday- it was gratefully received

Suddenly realised I only have 2-3 weeks for C shopping so mild panic is setting in!

Well done to the proud parents - it is a lovely feeling.

stabilising clay banks on wet and windy slope

Posted: 17/11/2014 at 14:18

I saw a very spectacular bank (can't remember where) it was steepish and was covered in hypericum calycinum (Rose of Sharon). It creates quite a firm tangle of greenery,  flowers all summer and just needs a haircut in early spring.

Always thought if I ever had a tricky bank  I would replicate it..
