How are you supposed to cook till then, as I assume it is not safe to use ? If it was in this house I would say great, takeaways for a week.

Talking of food I better prepare some dinner for the worker.

When we have had neighbourly disputes in our house, my OH goes round and talks nicely to them, and if they do not respond I go and shout at them. On the whole, over many years, the OHs methods have had a better outcome.

Unfortunately many of the taller Asters do need staking or else they flop.

Afternoon all. Just my luck, it is sunny and I have only just got up!?? Shameful I know. I have no idea why, I never sleep for this long.

Better go and sit outside to get some rays, very good for the mind.

Sorry to hear about the hospital LK.

Enjoy the rest of the day.

Evening all. Just been watching Brian Cox's new series on I-player. Fascinating, he is one clever guy, and so passionate about his subject.

Also managed to order the rest of next years seeds, 20% discount till Sunday from Chilterns.

Am going to sort out a snack now.

Hope you are all enjoying your evenings.

Frank, that is a deeply moving post. I think that you appear to have coped remarkably well.

Hope your friend starts to improve SGL.

I think it should be fine in Dorset, covering with fleece if going to be very cold.

Don't cut it back now, but leave it till growth is about to start. When I grew them, I cut them down almost to the ground and they re-grew fine. I grew them in pots, because it was too cold for them here.

Beautiful plants.

Still horrible here, but managed to sow some of the seeds that need a cold period to aid germination. They will stay outside over winter.

Tulip bulbs arriving tomorrow which is nice, but not quite as nice as my wine order. Should keep me going until after C#######s, although if weather carries on like this maybe not.

Hope everyone is managing to have a more productive day than me.

Thanks SGL, Mum is a lot better, although should not be living by self. I will go down again in a few days.
