Evening, back from my flying visit to York, it was a lovely sunny day up there, but by the time I was home the sun had gone here.

Did anyone see the story about the couple who bought the cannabis plant at a car boot sale not realising what it was and it is now huge.Police say that they have never seen a cannabis plant so big.

Lovely photo on the web of the green northern lights over Kendal last night. apparently should be ale to see it tonight but probably not in Rossendale.

Just catching up with stricly it takes 2, bring back Claudia! I do miss her quirky sense of humour. How does Zoe Ball walk on those heels?

Haven't put my wallflowers in yet Jo. I bought trays of reasonably sized plants, I am always disappointed with the bare root plants, nor quite sure what I do wrong with them.

Off to York tomorrow, external examining. Hope I can get some time ti call into the shops too.

Evening all, had a quick catch up.but lost track of who said what. lovely photos , yummy food from food fair, but I prefer my Turkish Delight with chocolate on. Ponies in the garden??? They'd have to be mountain ponies in mine, but no grass anyway. Happy Thanksgiving for yesterday. No problems with site here. I love wallflowers, beautiful scent. Met OH on a blind date! I didn't even understand all the questions on University Challenge.

What a dilemma Hollie. Try contacting one of the cat protection charities, they may be able to suggest something. They may have cat behaviourists who can advise.

I always cut it back and it always comes back the following year. Hope that's not tempting fate! Do it with both red and white varieties.

In the garden all afternoon, my sedums are in full flower And alive with bees, insects and moths. In the process of rejigging one of my beds and still trying to dig up a wandering phygellus. It's such a thug! Lots of recent plant acquisitions to put in. Have improved the top foot or so of soil, but solid clay below. Looks like 2 sunny days coming up, but will be working, typical eh?
