Mornin'  everybody - Wow! What a night - kept very much to myself in the corner with a bottle of gin but enjoyed watching everybody else's antics. You left a bit early tho' Dove didn't you 

Sorry about the double postings above - that's twice this forum's done that to me this week - makes me look like a real bighead!

See you's all tomorrow pm for a decision. 

Really sorry everyone - it's all my fault - I got soooo fed up with spending hours watering every night that I did my very best rain dance - and it worked - and how

I'm no wuss either Dove - but I was thinking the same thing as I was mopping out our garage which was flooded this pm - along with several of our local roads. And it looks as tho' we're just about to get a bit more... 

A deluge like that when we're half way round would not be much fun at all - and it's a long drive to sit in the coffee shop - albeit in excellent company.

I think they're not 100% sure where this weather system is actually going to hit at the moment. Personally, I can leave making a final decision until Sat pm but I appreciate that others have families to consider & may prefer to bite the bullet now.

Has Panda already bought her train ticket...?

Would anybody like some surplus seeds (more than enough for everyone)  -

white Honesty and the spring flowering purple Thalictrum available.

Collected this morning - can bring them on Sunday.

Could it be squirrels or is the damage too great for them?

I think they are the culprits  doing a similar thing in my raised veggie beds as they harvest / hide / and, some months later, dig up the cob nuts and walnuts I supply them with elsewhere in the garden 

I have resorted to a combination of chicken wire and twiggy sticks placed at intervals over the beds - seems to be effective but it doesn't look very good!

Panda - I think I've sent you a PM - the link from this page isn't working for me today - but I found a way round the back 

Hope you get it!

Oh oh -  now it's getting serious! Just spent 10 mins looking for the glass of wine I 'just put down for a minute'.

Fortunately found it on the hall window sill - obvious place to look really
