perennials I didn't get round to planting

Posted: 13/11/2012 at 15:19

When i moved house I took a lot of perrennials. As I was unable to plant them out and they had to get through a winter I buried the pots in the ground. Gives quite a bit of frost protction and gives more time to plant them out in spring.

Ouch Lottie. Hope he fully recovers soon. In good company though - Bradley Wiggins.

OH makes our bread in bread machine fortunately he's given up making his own, means minimum salt and additives. My BP was so high dr said tablets, I said no I'll lose weight. Have lost a lot, still a way to go BUT blood pressure now behaving itself and no drugs.

Christmas shopping no ttill first week of December, Christmas tree 2nd week, may go up to Cannock Chase for it - Becks.

What was the singing ringing tree?

I don't have natural highlights and have been asked what colouing I use and how often do I put it on. I tell my daughter I may have given her short genes but I have also given her hair that doesn't change colour and she'll thank me for it when she is older.

Talk later have to go and witness part 2 of my mothers teeth!!

Just envious Dean. Long may you get the freebies. In the days OH worked we used to get the occassional freebie. They werre always more than welcome.

My hairdresser visits and I pay him with a chocoalate cake. It's daughters partner and he just loves cake so it gives me an excuse to bake. Mind you i have to wait as he is busy - thank goodness.

Omelette sounds great - wish OH would do something that simple!
