I doubt there is anyone who could afford you Dove.

Cleared the leaves from one lawn, two more to go. Much as I love my Beech trees, at this time of year I curse them.

Morning all, severe frost again.

Funny you should say that KEF, as I am sitting here trying to work out excuses for not doing it.

Yorkshire puds with anything other than a roast dinner, just seems wrong.

Stay warm everyone.

Soil - how moist?

Fishy, I think you need to stick to bog plants, of which there are many, rather than plants for standard borders.

Evening all. Very cold outside, and leaves still on lawn, always tomorrow I suppose.

Right, need to go and find something to cook.

I would cover the crown with some straw, and then when the leaves die back, you can cover with those.

Decided to skip leaf raking, and went for lovely walk up on the moors in the sun.

Was amazed to find a number of Bilberry bushes in flower.

Morning all. Heavy frost here, but looks like there might be some sun today.

Really must get leaves off the lawn.

Have a good day all.

Morning all. Wet again.

Its official, I cannot keep up with a bunch of 18 year old girls, but it was good to try.

Afternoon all. Finally managed to coax myself outdoors, having spent week inside feeling mardy.

Removed leaves from all the Hellebores and chopped back some perennials which were flopping over everything else.

Off to an 18th. birthday party tonight, doubt I will be able to take the pace.

Glad to hear you sounding more positive Matty.

Hope mum is ok Verdun.

Canna Lily

I think the key is getting from a supplier that does not have the Canna virus. I always ask.
