Will be a disaster Sunnygardener.  I share your impatience for spring but winter will still have a big say yet.

Morning everyone.

Quiet, dry and bright moon as I walked to the beach earlier.  Calm before the storm .....Frank looks angry for tonight and tomorrow 

Carrots - what's the secret?!

Posted: 28/12/2015 at 23:14

Spring and summer carrots only for me.  Come September I have had enough.  From late May onwards I am eating delicious sweet carrots.

would never keep carrots in the ground.....

Phlox - subulata as ground cover ?

Posted: 28/12/2015 at 22:31

Iberis, candytuft, makes a good evergreen white flowered ground cover.  Heathers too worth considering.........foliage and flower colour throughout the year. my reservation about phlox is that soil needs to be reasonable quality to thrive in my experience.

 a1154 how big is the area?  How about a shrub or two to add variety?  Ground cover cotoneaster horizontalis, wide low growimg junipers?

Sorry to hear that Lily Pilly.

timing is awful isn't it?  

Wishing you all the strength you need to cope.  I'm sure you have great memories to help sustain you.

I have to confess to being over aggressive to Mollis.  I want to apologise.....hope she will accept it 

I can see now how all her posts here are pleasant and I misjudged the tone of her thread.  She is clearly a very nice lady with a big support here.   I sincerely thought my reply was tactful.....not  being aware of exactly what she meant.  On reading again I can see her thread was one of reminiscence and goodwill and clearly being enjoyed by many here.

so Mollis, if you are about, sorreeeeeeee

Storm Frank that is!  

Latest seems to be lots of torrential rain and strong winds for later tomorrow and Wednesday.  

Earlier reports were suggesting 100 mph winds but I think they will pass further north now.   Hopefully so.

so far most of the stormy weather has by passed here but everywhere is wet underfoot.  A result of our warm weather.
