Ecky thump!  Dove has lost her thingy.  It's prob somewhere 

Balmy  day here too.  Quiet, cloudy, dry and very warm.  If the sun appeared it would have been hot 

Funny about my fiber optic broadband deal.  A friend of mine, slightly autistic with Aspergers, said I should "shop around to get a better deal".     "I've got it free" I reminded him.  "yes.but it always pays to,shop round" he insisted.  "I've got free connections and router.  Everything at no cost" I replied.  Could I get him to accept it? No.  I had to say "thanks" and I will shop around   A really nice guy ...intelligent too....though

Morning folks

 Wet  windy overnight.  Not toooooo bad right now but mixture expected today but still very warm.

No time to do much in the  garden but much of it is still looking good anyway. Busy day in prospect   

Have good weekend everyone 

camellia looking poorly

No it needs a ssquestered iron feed.  Epsom salts can  help .....if the problem is magnesium .......amd this is a food tonic for Camelias and most plants.

I think though it's best to  leave it for now and feed in the spring.
