Blowing a gale where you are yet?

It was pretty windy in Nottinghamshire this morning but seems to have quietened down a little.  Sky looks very grey though. What's it like where you are Gardening friends?

 Sunrise from my window 30 seconds ago. So lovely, I had to share. Love yours David.

 

Bake off again

The best thing about Bake Off for me is seeing a mature female on telly.  It's so refreshing and interesting to watch a woman that's full of life's wealth.

Leo sounds adorable! I adopted a cat last Wednesday from the cats protection league. He's 8 and called Sidney. So far he's scratched a new sofa to bits and made a 'stain' on a new carpet.... and I love him! He's worth every bit of destruction. Can't wait to see what he'll be like in the garden!

1. Seeing the little beggars re grow so quickly and getting the complete root out

2. Get all the root out with ease: most I find just snap some root off.

3. Root snapping!

4. A magic one that did it for me! And also told me that me bum never looks big in anything I wear

Well it is call Gardeners World...not Strictly Just Gardening. Nigel is a part of Montys gardening world and the show shares that with us, which makes us very lucky as Nigel is a personal Pet. I remember Alan Titchmarsh's cat which was equally as lovely.  

Warning - Roundup Gel

Thanks for the warning. That's awful. I hope your cat is ok.

Gardeners' Logic???

Posted: 29/09/2014 at 08:25

totally agree. Propagation is just magic when it works! Especially when you spot one of whatever it is you've propagated in the garden centre, and often your own tends to look healthier too.  I would love to see some pictures of your successful propagation thecatsmother. Love the name by the way!

Without wanting to burn my bra, I do find that women on the whole tend to be better when it comes to budgeting and financial logic. Especially these days when more and more women have higher salaries, and often work twice as hard to smash through glass ceilings.
