If you are going to prune, do it in late winter and not now.

Hi all.

I was sitting there last night, feeling sorry for myself: lost deposit on holiday, computer broken [ even with up to date malware protection ] and then the news came through.

Puts your minor problems into perspective.

Had breakfast outside this morning, OH had the washing out and we have just had the most violent storm.

I shall have very limited computer access until desk top is fixed, but will pop in and out when I can.

Only about 8 miles from me.

We try to visit a few each year, as there are many within 10 miles, and one I can even walk to.

lupin plant not doing well

Sorry but I totally disagree.

Lupins like good moist soil. I have even managed to get them to do well in my bog garden.

Water well, decent soil, but I agree, not in a pot.

Hi all.

Managed to grab a few minutes on OH's laptop.

Desk Top now at computer shop, hope it is fixable.

Watched our grey wagtails going in and out of the nest all day, hopefully fledged wagtails will appear at some point.

I love Monty too.

Sadly Japanese holiday is now officially cancelled and I have lost the deposit. Looks like I shall be planning another trip, where shall we go?

Some sort of computer virus here.

Grabbed  couple of minutes on OH's laptop.

Agree about Ireland, sign of real progress.

Doubt I will get on again today, so have fun everyone.

Hi all.

Still got major computer issues, but thought I would pop in.

Sorry Hosta, but I totally disagree.
