Hmmmmmm!  It's a shame people can assume I am being "short" on the forum.  Far removed from being true.   Way beyond in fact.  I'm neither annoyed nor agitated.  Just made what I felt was a fair comment 

there is no mystery as far as I am aware about anyone's name on fhe forum......who uses their real name?  ......and many have changed their name or just joined without speculation or imagination

coconut oil?  Ok if you want to fry but a shiny pink/red and white body on the beach often is not a good sight.  Of course, we Cornish have a natural tan not needing anything else 

sun is out.  Going to be really nice now. 

haggled a good deal on car tyres for someone earlier saving almost 50% eventually on top quality tyres.  Plus got a free big brekkie as a thankee 

DD fingers crossed that all works out well

Relocating my plants

Connie, you are not seriously considering taking mature plants?  Honeysuckles, passion flowers?  They would sulk at least anyway but is pretty mean . Take cuttings now....maybe even some layered shoots will be present.  

I know people who remove light bulbs and the like...........hmmm!

Pat, no problem.  Cornwall and Wales are celtic cousins so similar.  Both can fit into one of your beaches.  Cornwall rarely gets the extremes of temps...the hottest places in the country are inland eastwards.  The coldest in winter are inland, north and east.  So overall fairly mild year round.

Hello forkers 

hey! I dont know who SNOW is either but why the curiosity?   I would hate speculation about my name If I was a new poster.  We give info about ourselves only as far as we individually want.  

Dry again, feeling a little warmer but cloudy. Cannot remember the last morning I took Spike in the, that's tempting fate 

having brekkie early to make room for mid morning big breakfast.  But need to make room for summat at lunchtime.  Life can be so complicated

Hiya nightgarden

it depends on what sort of conifers and where you are.  However, I would wait now until the spring.  Many conifers show brown patches where individual leaves are cut so these will show until new growth occurs.  Done in spring regrowth is quick
