Oh yes, brilliant, we have it on video, and watch it occassionally - well about once a year - even have the book Ho HO 

That's something to keep eye out for, I agree about David Suchet, and Geraldine Whatever who i always have a start when i see her glam! 

What's in flower this Christmas

The rose is one of 3 I bought from much maligned JParkers. The variety is the Fairy, 1 pink, 1 red and the photo. I am now very pleased with all 3 

2 are in chimney liners, so there is no base, just placed on soil.

I also have Feverfew, Erysinum, Rose 'Winchester Cathedral (1flower). the frost last week finished off most

Just come back from seeing the Hobbit, very uncomfortable seats in small cinema, just surround sound, no 3D. Thoroughly enjoyed it -but I don't go to look at what's wrong, what's not in the book in the right place, I jus go for a good film experience with a decent tale.

Lovely trees all.

Inka I love that swirl of bells, do they tinkle?

Jo it's easy, before i started on this thread i couldn't download, find photos, save or anything, I would just panic There are still things to learn but it comes and now I post pictures , clip art often to keep my hand in - so i keep changing my avatar and persona as well. just about to do it again as well 

Flo - recycled tree is good, any time you are ready, and any one else, same with Dean we will wait to see it

 This is ancient parent tree which is in garden/dinig/kitchen room. View of hills just not there today

 I do not know where her decorations have gone so it is mostly tinsel  but it is still a reminder of her

No secret, just planted it in usual mix compost, soil and horse pooh and left it to it. No flowers on it all summer so I thought maybe the damp didn't suit it. it's not sheltered so......

Oh Busy Lizzie, you seem to have an amazing garden in a wonderful part of the world.

Do you have visitors marvelling about what an English garden looks like?
