Finally watched GW without fallling asleep. Is it me or was there not really much content. Longer programme would be so much better - I know discussed before. I'd have more time to go to sleep as well!!!

What's for tea?

Finished now for day 

Pleased you are back in Southampton Geoff.

Loved the doggy vid

Who said they had seen a pair of cool wellies?Can't remember. as I came inside from garden, trousers dripping wet, socks soaked, feet cold I thought I really must break out my new pair for tomorrow. They are red with pink flowers on

Anyway cleaned and filled bird feeders, potted on some white foxgloves, brought some very young lavender into greenhouse. OH brought in the other olive and a bay in a pot. They have grown well this year so wre a bit heavier than last!!!

Hi everyone.

Hope all backs, lurgii,and slip ups are improved. Sorry about Kate. Just taken me ages to catch up. Interesting about the word 'lurgy' OH says he's not surprised about its origin

Really damp, murky, ground is wet, dog and cats are wet, My hair looks a mess. Oh for a bit of bright sun, even a few minutes.

Loved the mushroom photo

Not been able to get any wallflowers but have seed for next year.

What is a cobeae or what evr. Will kook it up.

It's difficult to find gardening jobs that can be done in this weather.

Where is Nigel?

I am never in my garden without dog and cat. Sometimes they get wroing side of door ie inside and go frantic to join in the work in the garden. Would not be same without them as I am sure it is fir everyone else with pets.

As for a longer programme -hear hear!
