Not local!

Seeing the Snow Buntings made me think of my Arctic expedition, where we saw lots. Looking through the photos i thought I might post this.

Flowers late for me, plus the stems look good all winter, they are white.

I then cut back virtually to the base in early Spring.

Hi all.

I can see i am going to have to come down to make sure you get sorted, Hosta.

Funny thing happened this pm. I was sitting in the garden and a bloke came down the drive, came over to me saying he was lost.

It transpired he was a "garden designer ". He spent 20 minutes walking round some of the garden, made some nice comments, but did not know the name of any of the plants.

Afterwards he showed me a portfolio of his work, lovely, as long as you don't like plants, but do like hard landscaping, with the occassional palm tree and Cordylline.

Hi all.

Glad your Dad is ok. Chicky and hope WW starts to improve soon. Make sure you work Dove hard.

What is the news Hostafan?

I have just spent 2 hours on the phone, trying to sell an investment, during which time, they variously denied my existence, followed by telling me my account number was wrong, etc etc.

I tried really hard not to lose my temper, but failed and have now made a formal complaint. I expect it will be at least 6 months before I see the money.

Am going into the garden to do something violent.

Stac Polly is fantastic isn't it?

If it were a Munro i think it would be one of the most talked about hills. Done it a few times, when waking too late to do a big walk, its proximity to the road being very handy.

Fantastic Snow Bunting, have seen them occassionally oop north.

We have talked about doing it, Fairy, as many of the places on it are great favourites of ours.

Suilven is a great mountain, although the walk in was seriously boggy.

There is a pub in Lochinver used by the trawler crews, I noticed all the tables and chairs are nailed down to the floor, must have some riotous times in there.

Warmed up a lot now.

Been planting up pots with dwarf dafs, will do Iris reticulata later.

I will be checking up on you later Hosta, to make sure GP has been in contact

Hi all.

sunny, but freezing here, more like winter than autumn.

Not found anyone who wants to tackle the roof, so at the moment it is buckets.

Still not plucked up the courage to arrange meeting with brother, may leave till after the holiday [ question is, which holiday? ]

I can't understand why more progress has not been made with regard to your pain Hosta, you need to keep badgering them.

Like the Marie Celeste on here tonight.

Hope all is well.

Have to admit to being on the gin tonight, weather has just been so miserable.

Will there be adequate drainage with a concrete base there?
