Good evening FORKERS.  Here I am at my rightful place.....first in the queue.  Been lovely day here weather wise and personal wise.  ( well, I am a wise person).

Did I say I'm expecting a parcel of plants tomorrow?  No!  Well, I am and one is quietly exciiiiiiiiiiited

Ain't sayin any more!  Except I now,think they were tomatoes. you think I will be standing around with my camera.  I'll be ripping open the box like a demon.  I expect they,will all have flowers to an extent but they will be regarded as plants for 2014.  (maybe broke next year but at least I'll have my plants)

It's been a  lovely sunny day. Lawns cut. Picked more crunchy sweet carrots,,Beetroot, lettuce and toms,too.  (another week maybe left of toms but all ripening or ripened)

Oops,  past the curfew.  Aaaaaaaaaah!

Whats your plans for next year.

That sounds absolutely wonderful Marion.  Have you ever grown Rogersias?  

Hope we see the pictures next year.

Finish the pond now or in the spring?

Cadge some from other pond owners.  They spread rapidly.

Don't  throw out plants....not decent ones.  Just make new borders.  Shrubs or anything that doesnt hold it's own is discarded.  Old past their sell by date shrubs once removed create nice new planting sites.  Try to replace with new varieties if they are better.

Just's somewhere between the "national hub" and Cornwall.  

Chocs through the post!  My "fix" is  Toblerone......all on its own, that's Toblerone.  I find the large bars taste best

Talking of "fix" I called on someone recently I hadn't seen in a while.   He was growing 3 beautiful plants .....lovely foliage and offered me a potted one.  I declined.  Suffice to say he is the most relaxed, laid back guy you could meet.
