Your garden is amazing, Pam. When do you start preparing for this year's display?

Good morning Forkers,

I haven't a clue what day it is.

I took this photo across the garden two days ago. Didn't Noah see a rainbow and it was a sign that the floods were over? I hope so.

Spring is on the way or have I spoke too soon?

Sorry about your cat bjay. It's so worrying when animals are ill as they can't tell us what is wrong.

I read about the property market in Spain, Geoff. Should get a good buy. Is Mrs. Geoff keen to go too?

I've got lots of horse poo or should I say pony poo as I've got two retired shetlands. I do get a lot of nettle seedlings and Frank (Palaisglide) told me that horses have a poor digestion and a lot of what they eat goes straight through including weed seeds. I think manure is more of a soil improver than a fertiliser.

Good morning all,

I don't have any Tarot  cards but I've got a plaque of the Green Man on the wall of the house. I did once dream the winning lottery numbers and have to do that line every week just in case.

In the middle of putting the posh plates etc. away after a family buffet yesterday. I was going to go in the garden today as it was supposed to be dry today but it's dark and miserable out there. Might start taking the decorations down instead.

My DIL said next year, or rather this year, she is going to wait until Christmas Eve to buy her Christmas tree as B&Q were selling them off for a penny.

I still haven't figured out everyone's Christmas names, Flo.

Hi Kate,

Yes, Cornwall has had non-stop rain but we've been okay thanks. Hope your parents are alright. Apparently 50 years ago Cornwall was the worst affected by snow. Villages cut off for weeks and hay dropped to animals by helicopters.

These catalogues are so tempting, Jo. Just can't make up my mind but if I order seeds now I'll be tempted to sow too early.

Morning all,

Didn't Margaret Thatcher say that every Prime Minister needed a Willie? I don't think she played football.

Happy New Year's Eve. I'm doing a granny thing and baby sitting tonight. The family are all coming for a buffet tomorrow so I'm cooking a ham today. Hopefully that's the end of enjoying myself and can get back to normal. 

Looking forward to getting out in the garden again. the weather is supposed to be better by the weekend

Good morning all,

Please excuse my absence, just so much going on. The family are coming to me on New Years Day and then it will all be over for another year.  

We had a power cut for 8 hours on Thursday but Western Power did ring up to apologise and explain the problem, something about lightning restrictors.

It was nice to sit in candle light and not be able to do much.

I tok the opportunity to look through some of the seed catalogues that came this week.

T&M

Page 37  Butterfly Pea (Clitoria ternata)

Page 66 Gomphocarpus 'Hairy Balls'

Both plants look amazingly like their names.
