Morning....just watching the mist rise with a hot cup of tea. Wishing I could spend my day in the garden, but instead I have the daily 2hr commute, a tedious presentation to give, a meeting with a 'talker' so won't be short, a trek to the other side of London for another meeting and then home time....after the 2 hr commute back. 

Must remember to buy a lottery ticket at some point. 

Anyone doing anything fun today?

Potted plants for winter?

Thanks mattbeer87. Yep over buying and also over planting is something I'm starting to kick myself for.  I must remember, less is more!

Chilli peppers

I dried some chillis that my neighbour kindly gave me last year in return for a couple of cucumbers! I slit them longways with a sharp knife and left them on a plate on the window ledge to completely dry out. It took a while but when they were as dry as a bone I chopped them up into tiny bits with some scissors. Stored in a little air tight pot. Wow! They taste amazing and I sprinkle them in all sorts for a nice extra kick. Really useful way to use them

Oh dear, I hope no one has hurt ( including any wildlife snuggled away ).

I love Pieris. Any chance of a photo of this silver one pretty please? 

Ive got a lovely little gultheria - big fat berries in winter, in a pot with a heather and a cyclamen.

 I normally empty my winter pots but last year I forgot two of them and found them plonked behind the greenhouse. They now look stunning!  I real lesson for me to leave things to their own devices rather than constantly tidying away and renewing. 

Lawn weed

Humph! Our lawn is covered this year. Thing is, when I pull them up I rarely seem to get the end of the root. It always seems to snap about half way down. Is it essential to get the whole root out?
