4 cd cases with 180 in each case Fairy?  Blimey that's nearly a million 

gone tidy crazy.....cut cannas down (still in flower) last of the dead dahlia stems,,old foliage of crocosmias and the last of the miscanthus.  They need a rest and a mulch besides they will all be shooting again in 4 or 5 weeks. 

Cloudy and dull but warm and dry. 

It's my birthday

get well soon Steve.  

Funny how things seem scripted sometimes....remember having quite a serious car crash on my birthday one year.

Lots of standing water here though Dove.  Sheer accumulations even on the towans approaching the beach on pure sand are saturated.  May be the mildest autumn/winter but has to be the wettest too

Morning folks 

damp overnight.....not heavy rain just drizzlle.  Dry and feeling really warm ...prob cos no wind but it could be a spring morning.  Right down to the beach again and not a soul to be seen 

berberis atro is lovely in my opinion but my hands are full of scratches and cuts after pruning it back yesterday.

still have a couple of large busy lizzies in flower....they usually die off way before any pelargoniums do.  (Pelargoniums still flowering too)   Too early...far too be complacent about the winter but this has to be the mildest on record 

my only concern is keeping plants watered in the gh etc.

Arsenal are sure to slip up.  They always do when there's a chance for them to go top
