Evening all.

Just starting to prepare the risotto and have bought her favourite tipple, a bottle of Hendricks. I suppose we will have to drink Gewurtzaminer that I am using for the risotto as well.

I love the financial scammers, I appear very interested in buying their shares, tell them I have lots to invest, then wait until they have got their hopes up and wasted lots of time before I rip into them.

Have a good evening everyone.

Morning all.

Cold and wet here.

Tree surgeons coming again today, to reduce height of one of the Yew trees, which makes garden very dark in winter. I wanted some crown lifting on a couple of Beeches, but I am not sure it is a good idea, need to discuss it with them.

Have a good day.

At the moment Omphalodes cappadocica looks wonderful in a shady border, really shines out.

A few weeks ago Corydalis flexuosa looked good in a similar location.

Always look forward to the Delphiniums

Rain, snow, hail and sunshine so far today. Too cold for gardening, so sitting on the sofa, catching up with gardening programmes on the TV.

Keep pulling it up and although you won't eradicate it, you will keep it under control.

Weed killer may help, but only if you bruise the stems first.
