The thing I like about Noel is that for all his brilliance as a surgeon, it's his empathy for his clients and their pets which shines through when you watch his programmes.

Just watched the owner of Walnut the Whippet on Breakfast TV, it's always a heart rending time when we say goodbye to our beloved pets but this is such a lovely send off.

BBC Countryfile Ramble

Posted: 06/11/2016 at 18:46

I'm watching BBC Countryfile which this week is devoted to the rambles which took place in aid of Children in Need.

Such huge admiration for the young lady who is a double amputee and others who having suffered bereavement or illness and have pushed themselves to help raise money for this great cause.

Have to admit to watching through a teary eye listening to the stories of some of those taking part. But it does help restore faith in humanity.

Sunny and cold this morning with an overnight frost. Lovely walk on South Downs before the cloud came over and now looks very wintry.

Hi Logan, glad to hear Bracken is comfortable. People often comment that Floss is a ' smiley' dog

You'll get there Rosemummy😊, it's always a struggle when taking on an overgrown plot but it's worth it in the end. What worked for me was to pick a small area for the first year and not worry about the rest.

Horseradish woes

Very true Phillipa, especially in this digital age where access to information is so readily available. 

My only experience of growing horse radish was as a young lad my Dad and I helped an elderly neighbour look after her garden. There was an established bed of Horse radish which she asked us to remove, no amount of digging could eradicate it! 

Garden Confessions - 3 Worst Crops of 2016!

I have to say that I get a fantastic crop from yellow courgettes and they ' taste' as good as any courgettes I've grown. I've also grown crystal cucumbers and thought the flavour better than standard cucs, but the variety I grew were very susceptible to mildew.
