Thanks for that. So simple. Much better than wrapping whatever we can find - bubble wrap /old tea towells around it. 

Will do it later today

2 seperate lots of visitors with mums. Still got lots of monster treats.

Missed the Caramac, didn't know you could still get it.

Going to bed now - seen very exciting film at proper cinema tonight 

'Scarey' ones came before we left. Did a house tally and probably went out before others came a-knocking at my door

I love Chelsea Buns - makes me want to make them just talking about them. Did you see Paul Hollywood making his version last week - Yum

Can't have any though (sigh)

Lardy cakes are OK but very localised i think? 

Should have known better than go to Argos. Wouldn't usually, just wanted to save time 

We live 3 1/2 hour drive from our Grandchild. i would so love to be involved more in her life. She is 7 weeks old. Still it'sa good excuse to not be able to baby sit!!

Still we have one and we thought it might not happen with them (eldest son)

What's for tea?

Because I need one that is 6 foot long without any centre supports so that curtain will slide right across as can only put curtain at one end. For some reason one I bought is in 3. Got it from Argos so can't see before you buy.

Means trip tomorrow to Argos again. The Plus is that I managed to drive, but getting into old habits with speed as OH pointed out as we sped around a sharp S bend!

Talking about how books have changed. i have just read in an old Expert book that lilies can suffer from slugs, aphids,and occassionally mosaic virus .

Obviously red lily beetle had not appeared at time of printing.

Hey again.

Just been out to buy curtain pole but don't think its suitable.

I have boxes of stuff from my mother's house in the loft and half of the garage. I find it very hard to go through especially as she is still here. I wish i could ask her about things but  is in another place. Stll she did remember about dentist yesterday.

OH bread may not have looked good but tasted OK. Wonder what it will be like tomorrow. 

Back tp Bjay tomorrow I think, keep wondering who Dolores Umbridge is!

What new plants for next year?

Posted: 31/10/2012 at 13:19

I also thought I would give Stokesia a go. Saw some in a garden centre and was very taken with them. It's a case of fitting everything in and leaving growing space.

i have arough paper plan for new area but keep seeing other plants I like. Currently in garage is a large octopus of eremurus root. The bed is still not ready and am after ideas of how to keep it until I can plant it. Have had some suggestions.
