Love the brunnera, Liz, it's called caucasian forget-me-not here. I've got one that was here when we moved in 17 years ago and still going strong. It's made a few seedling which I've spread around the garden but still very small.

Re families shopping with their kids, I'm an OAP with the whole day at my disposal, so I try to do my shopping when they are least likely to be around, mostly around lunch time when everyone is fooding!

WEATHER this week

No cutting of grass here either, it's covered by an inch of new snow this morning! Yesterday it rained and seemed to warm up a bit, but St. Peter was just having us on! Poor birdies are completely confused, have run out of bird food and the shops have removed any supplies and exchanged it for fertilizer, slug pellets etc. etc. It's enough to make you spit!!!!

Today's dilemma

Hi, poor fellow, I guess he means well!

Perhaps you could put the wheelbarrow at the back, drill some holes in the bottom, fill it with compost, and plant your onions in it, spaced about 10cm apart.

A lot of us love GW and I don't know of any country where you don't have to pay for a TV license. If you don't like the programme, THEN TURN IT OFF OR SWITCH TO ANOTHER CHANNEL!!!

Morning all. Pentillie, your post could be an article/comments straight out of a Zürich newspaper! Although I must say, people who cycle in a city the size of London must have more guts than brains! Boris excepted, of course!

Ryan, that's a difficult one to anwser, there are so many! Have a look on the site under Fuchsia Gallery and click through the suggestions on the left hand side or under A-Z.

Here another great website:

My search through Google is leading me from one thing to another, I think I'm going nuts!

Trouble is, all the best ones with the greatest choice are in the UK, very frustrating, but at least I can get some ideas

I have just stumbled on an excellent website on fuchsias, particularly very detailed info on how to take cuttings, this just for those who aren't experiences "cutting takers", like me.
