Paradoxically, bamboos are so invasive...phyllostachys Aurea is one of the the garden but dislike being in pots. birdyboots you are doing well then.  They do require plenty of attention ....watering esp.....or they will suffer.  Watch out for escaping roots if they are standing on soil

I have busy lizzies in full flower and looking as good as in summer.  

I have a theory about footballers, managers etc., that they are all engaged in a constant lucrative merry go round.  Huge pay offs and signing on fees often returning to their original clubs.  Cynical or what?

enjoy your wine Jo

I would always argue against planting bamboo.  Sometimes they are not an issue but, usually,,they are a nightmare.  Those that plant them are mostly aware of the risk.

I am lucky here in not being overlooked by neighbours and I agree with Jo garden is also my retreat, don't want a daily relationship with any of them or a "needy" one or a chat over the fence.   I do help and support people but my own space is important to me.  Nothing selfish in wanting that

Adios Jose.   Shame to see such a charismatic manager sacked.   His players let him down badly 

Anyone else still mowing??

Similar here Obelixx.  Dry enough to paint and for it to dry. Tomorrow is looking even better.    My grass will be cut again tomorrow after last week's mowing. 

13 degrees minimum tonight
