Hiya lily

Dont think you have upset anyone 

Hey!  How's this for positive?  Unfurled  fresh socks and found a tenner......yippee!  Must have gone Imto the wash cos it was all crumpled,squeezed and tatty but it's          S p e n d a b l e.  

(my brother thought he had hit the jackpot when he moved into his new home few years back.  The previous owners left their old curtains and my brother found £20 notes stitched into the lining.  He then began a frantic search all over the old house.  Think he had a few hundred £'s )

Christmas trees...

Posted: 26/11/2013 at 00:07

I have a large holly in the garden.  It would be perfect as a Christmas tree.  Not this year but maybe next year I will decorate it.  A friend has a holly standing some 20' tall by side of her garage full of berries.  Think it may be lit up this year.   Some villages down here go to town with their outside decorations.....see Angarrack folks if you're down here for the best possible display. 

Dove my niece and her friends have a hankering for white Xmas trees.  I have to admit they look good. Our local garden centre yesterday had one and it was the centrepiece of their display.   That pink one though!  No.

Shears or hedge cutter works very well.  No special pruning required

Posted: 25/11/2013 at 23:45's what discussion does zoomer.   

Mind you, this very evening I was reminded how often I veer off subject.  I do it so much.  Then, I reminded my "accuser" the nicest poss way....that she too had just strayed off the subject.  We all do it Zoomer    Just check some of the threads here.  I'm happy with that though 

Not sure it was a post especialy on gardening anyway ...will need to check

Hiya landgirl

I think liriope is a little under rated.  As ??ou said, yours was in a dark corner almost forgotten.  Mine too are planted in such spots but will prob do much better in the open.     a few spikes on mine too at the moment.  I may just move mine too
