Very quiet on here tonight.

I just wanted to remind Verdun to check out the BBC website, some very interesting climate change articles, that I am sure he will want to disagree with!

Evening all.

Blowing a gale here, can't even face the walk to the orchard, to close the greenhouse.

Nothing achieved here today, I was so bored, I even started tidying up and bagging up old clothes, to give to charity.

Baked salmon and ratatouille for supper.

Just wandered over to the orchard, to open the greenhouse and was delighted to see some Fieldfares feasting on windfalls.

leaf mould

I don't think leaf mould needs any accelerator. It is usually already mixed with some grass, when removing leaves from the lawn and that speeds the decomposition.

LP, I do really believe that they might help, the evidence is fairly good. They certainly can't do any harm.

Morning all.

Grim here again, high winds and rain. going a bit crazy, I want to be outside.

Have to say, I have never seen Downton. Thoroughly enjoyed Attenborough, a lot of what was shown was just like my Arctic trip.

Have a good day.

No one mentioned S. Amistad, or S. nemorosa Caradonna, both real beauties.

Never seen that, but looks diseased, chuck them away.
