LP - hope tomorrow is better.
As for Scotland, I'd have thought north-east would be perishing with all those North Sea and Arctic blasts whereas the north west would benefit from the Gulf Stream but be wetter. Midges either way.
I had a clump of broad leaved snowdrops that always came out in November and were taller than the ones I had elsewhere in the garden. I'm quite happy with my little flock of ordinary ones in their pots. Just need to find a good place to plant them permanently.
Chappy who came to see about building a shower room and finishing off the extension for us got very excited when he saw my Rangemaster lurking in the annex. "Oooh, you have a piano!" So I said no, it's a real cooker. Discussion about terminology followed. Apparently in French French, tiles on walls are faience and tiles on floors are carrelage. In Belgium, faience is earthenware pots and a tile is a tile is carrelage except when it's a tuile cos it's on the roof. So much to learn..
