If I'm awake for 1am here I'll do it Dove. Otherwise someone else will have to be up late or early.
Calm and partly sunny here with dark grey bits and blue bits and silvery streaks in between. My mission today is a chocolate Genoese for the Yule log Possum has requested, carrot soup for lunch and then sewing another pair of trousers.
Pat - We are expecting more rain over the next few days. The 3 water butts we have are full and the rear house and annex roof water all drains into the pond. We could install 1000 litre water tanks but they're big and ugly. Burying anything bigger would be expensive and could only be used for the loos or garden. Once we've had enough rain to work the soil and dig in lots of compost and get things established I expect them to cope as they get their roots down. Apart from a few not so dwarf conifers I don't regret at all, everything established here has survived the drought and even flourished. Just need to make the new beds well and get my treasures in and settled.
Chicky - it's probably very peaceful at work so you can get lots done. Hope you get good weather for all your walkies this weekend.
Glad you had a good sleep Hosta. The winds last week blew the green mesh sun shade off our polytunnel but the recent ones have blown it back on. Need to sling some ropes over to tie it down.
Hope all the Scots brigade are well and not freezing or slipping. Safe journey for the family LP..
I trust all lurgies are on the mend. Hugs to those who are feeling poorly or maybe bereft after visitors have gone.
