Fed up. Arsenal lost tonight too.  No chocs or donuts. 

I want to grow something different next year.  I'm always growing something new but what now?  Got new agastaches and new heleniums will arrive in spring but awesome  is called for now.     I guess everybody else thinks that way too

Fairy......I resemble that remark   (managed to slice a raspberry roulade. (?) though  and wangled couple of extra portions.....well,,it's tasty )

Learned my lesson last week at foodbank.....I offered plate of buns and the biggest of  all was taken.  When I was growing up I was taught to take the nearest cake to you so the nearest available were the small ones.  Wot's the world coming too, I ask myself ?     .......I ask myself !  Lol but seriously too

Brilliant colour Brum.  Just can't grow the dissectum varieties to that quality down here.  Just a mile or so inland though huge impressive specimens abound.

No clematis expert but no, I don't think it is busy.  May be wrong.  EV flowers most of the summer for me too.  Looks nice though.  EV is not so purple, is it?

KEF,  it's a love hate thing with it.  Hate it now.  Don't want any of it.  It goes deep to emerge amongst a hellebore I have nearby.  Hopefully I've removed it all now.  Not sure about a pot though.....maybe a spot somewhere where it can be restrained or maybe with geraniums.

David I think you can still buy win 7 desktops from currys online.  At least you could not so long ago.  Cheaper too.  Still like to have my desktop too.

A computer guy suggested not to upgrade to win 8.  Not worth the bother and not 100% yet.  

(love pc World etc ...seeing all the latest models of laptops, etc .  Love gadgets.  Always tempted by the newest "developments" a 3d plasma couple years back but don't bother with the 3d.  It's a great tv but I needed a sound system...more money!  Hopefully I'm a little more realistic.......hmmmmmm!  Have you read about the 4000 pixel tvs out now?  The picture is so realistic and........... )
