What a lot of posts and news and I've only been out for an afternoon!

Becks- hope all was well at docs and you now have magic medicine. I find our receptionists are OK but then I don't see them very often

Jo - what great news, a shame you couldn't join in from the beginning but may be it was for the best. Wish No 2 son would go, Just think you'll have somewhere to put all those cuttings you have too many of, and oodles of advice if she wants it. And we are all here to listen if you need a cyber ear

Something is coming out of the sky but it is rain. My have snow on hills by morning

Dreadful jokes geoff Straight out of crackers 

L had just phoned me from Wilkinson asking for directiions to the solar lights. Sold out though.

Where are all the birds ?

Blackbirds love apples. I cut some into quarters for entertainment (hopping around with them on their beaks,) some I chop up. Remember though blackbirds are ground feeders so apple needs to be on ground. Wood pigeons will leave apple alone.

on their way to garden near you!

Blackbirds have returned to my garden this week as well. I am going to attempt to put out a feeder I saw on another thread for them covering seeds with  up-turned wire hanging basket to stop the wood pigeons. We have also seen a little wren, but as she was feeding in a different place I will put out some for her. Does anyone know if they will eat mealworms?

Thanks fro the advice - mine are in a cold greenhouse - and it made me thik about my other plants with those temps.

What's the weather like in your area?

Very cold - Brrrrrr! and dry. Now it's clouding over and the hills seem to be misting - maybe worse to come

Thank you so much

Becks just make sure you emphasise how long you have BOTH been unwell.

Just been to see next door neighbour - from now on will be known as L - she has bought part of OH pressie for me as far to obvious if I have OH with me. She is  very kind person.

Sorry I just can't comment about chickens, only eating them excites me

Big box came today - inside were 2 small garlics for planting - rest was packaging. Which leads me to a gardening question. When would it now be safe to plant them as I know they need frosting?
