PD - had a quick look back - did you really have snow today? Or are you not home / moved house? I've seen nothing but sunshine today and I'm not far from you but I do know what deception distance can make!

verdun and PD - lots of car talk but haven't got to the nitty gritty of what it's about! I feel compelled to add my car experiences for you - new car arrived last night, current car sold and driven away this morning. cash paid into bank this afternoon. Loved, loved, loved my car and was sad to see it go, the new one is not as loved but a 'better' car and a good deal was had!

well hello there!

feeling a little sheepish as I've not been around for most of the winter, bet I'm already forgotten! 

Love the panda jumper, and belated birthday wishes to Kef - that's about all I've caught up on, sorry.

Ive hardly been in the garden since September, not managing to get everything ready for autumn and overwinter things. 

had a knock at the door today from a couple of men offering tree service, unusually for me I said yes and am pleased I did as they did a fairly good job, but mainly it meant I got out there. And loved it!

I Chopped, raked and tidied - as they gave 5 conifers a what for, a good tidy of the 2 apples ( I don't mind loosing the fruit), and best of all got rid of the huge poplar tree remains ( it died and fell probably 18 months ago).

Will put some photos on tomorrow so you can advise on their work - apples look ok but not sure techniques were correct - no thinning out, shaped outsides only, didn't seem to concentrate on removing the middle branch of a group ( not that I especially know about this but it's somewhere in my memory...)

Hoping you are all well and looking forward to spring! 

Does anyone else have this green rose?

Good morning.
panda, hope you're ok, (not that I've read back to know what's happened).
clear morning here, no frost.
spent last night hauling stuff out of my wardrobe, piles for bin , charity, don't like but wear and want to but don't wear pile s. Back killing now (surely it's not that? I can't be that unfit can I?). Last week it was the 'hall haul',.getting rid of shoes coats etc.
Right time to get orgainised for what hauling is due today...

Not looked out yet so it could be knee deep on snow or anything.
OH away skiing so I'm starting a bit later today after getting son off to school.
Brugmansia is dormant or a goner BL, not sure until spring. Will try and bring it indoors while OH still away, other thathan that it's just a matter of waiting.
Have a good day all.
