I have a feeling the americans will make the most of opportunities Trump may create.

we here have an opportunity to make brexit work very well for us IF the "elite" remoaners stop talking us down. 

i too voted for brexit....doubted we would get it but delighted we have the chance now to prosper.  Down here there is an air of optimism and the last thing we need to hear are the theoretical negatives 

Hardy geraniums

I think you will be offered bare root geraniums.  Some grow, some do not.  Very few will make anythimg until spring 2018.

go for named varieties of potted geraniums instead.  They will definitely give you flowers next year.

geraniums often make large spreading plants so you will not need lots of them.  Online the choice is excellent

anyway, so much for my cautions 

they can go into that way anyway.

You are right Frank. usual 

I can see Corbyn winning the election that is alarming 

speculation doesn't help at all.  the economists, politicians,bankers and all the other not so clever "experts"  (whose self interests are best served having no change) are consistently getting things wrong.

All doom and gloom again.......dearie me!  Will the sun ever come up again?  WIll tomorrow be so much different? 

We survived Ronald Reagan's dementia and Bush's war cries.  If Putin and Trump talk now it could herald something better than War.  And a businessman in charge rather than a politician could be pretty good too.

Let's see what happens.  Let"s listen to Eric Idle's wise words...."always look on the bright side of life"
