Thanks Georg. i will look at them but the local cheese shop is really quite special. He's the one that does cheese wedding cakes.

Making my own sounds OK, done it in past, but requires alot of shopping, which reqires a lot of walking which I can't do

AS only had idea today will ahve to have a long think first.

I know what you mean about men and suitable flooring. I only have 2 of them now, I was warned by an old lady across the road when the boys were little to always have a easy clwean floor no carpets. Was really good advice

Our tip put things out for others, but never been lucky to get there at the right time

Starlings

I have wood pigeons that plod around the base on the feeders for the scraps little birds don't want. We have about 4 starlings that visit us and do the same and get very excited about fat balls but seem to leave everything else alone.

Seen a couple of Long-tialed Tits today. I love their antics but they didn't stay long. At least they have found the garden so hopefully they'll be back with their mats

What's the weather like in your area?

We are beginning to dry out here, well it's sunny at the moment. Oh says roads and wood are only for paddling.

Morning All

Yes Geoff, Jaws music, that's what made it, so he decided to prove the point.!

David Austin Roses came today. Says in little book that came with them unless frozen (end of week) or excessively wet(now) do not plant. HA Ha!

There is one I am putting in a chimney pot so that will be OK but the others I will have to heel in. Jo said my raised veg bed should be OK.

No rain at moment Hurray

Hangovers. I always gave my son a drink of sweet tea. Raises the blood sugar level , alcohol lowers it. Used to work

OH was asked today if we live in Nobs Alley. We do, but grand it isn't. The road just has a strange history, and locals called it that and the name has stuck with the older ones. Was built about 1953, so not even that old.but has been ineresting finding out about it.

Question though about the roses, when I plant them in final place , at this time of year, do I still put in Bonemeal?
