Lily, these things work out.  It's the worry of what MIGHT be isn't it but take it as it comes

Overcast dark morning but mild

glad you had fun Woody 

have meet this morning...end of life care at care home.   Won't be a shock or anything but with my mum in same Home it will feel like a betrayal...! 

Not really a Christmassy feel esp with niece moving back in.  Not enough space to think

just to say Punkdoc keep as positive as possible....obvious but not easy.  I can get depressed and been in very bad places as most everyone does  and it's difficult during these cold dark months. Maybe the chink of light with the lengthening days next week!

hiya Lyn, no I haven't .  Will now though.  A fairly local hellebore grower/breeder has an open day in early spring too.  I think she had some spectacular unusual ones last year.  Have to be disciplined now though........I have a nice balance right now throughout the garden .....they provide good foils for summer anything more will have to be special.  

Looking out for a dark green variety....not sure if a good one is available yet

Yes but I'm lazeeeeee Woody!  I do that too but some of the doubles do create a beautiful layered affect. A good double produces a full packed colour display.  I prefer single dahlias too Woody.  A mixture of single and double echinaceas, heleniums etc as well.  Room for both.
