Jack Dixon was a bobby, plain and simple, wore a bobby's uniform. "Evening all"...( dum de dum de dum de..) I'll get Verd's coat. Does anyone remember PC 49?

Chicky, our telly was more various shades of grey ( oops) than black and white.

Lovely day here and planting will ensue, before shift on the tills at the shop.

No, Steve, the flies were common or garden houseflies, attracted by the smell of the toms, I think. No Toms this year, few flies.

Hi went to GC today for supplies and found 5 yellow echinaceas to overwinter for new bed. Also placed out my phlox and sedums, and in another bed the Roseanne geraniums. Will plant soon.  Bought Gaura seeds,which will be grown in spring to go with the Roseanne, under pink roses. Also salvaged some bits and pieces, geranium phaeums, pulmonarias, penstemon, echinacea... as we renovate all the remaining borders. All in pots for returning to beds later.

Hi Verd. I sometimes lose my gaillardias over winter and prefer to buy in Spring. Your milder winters (Dec to Feb only) should help however. 

Deferring purchase also allows me to decide how many I need for that year.

Winter is December to end of February, although in a good year Spring starts on Valentines Day for some, so they say...

Don't forget September and October are Late Summer , not A***** which doesn't start until 1st November. Cake will be denied all who ignore this rule.

By the way it's raining here so will cook up a bunch of soup to keep out the cold and damp!!

Returned home to inspect what my "man" had managed to do on Friday. Now seem to have acres of space to plant up with new schemes; really exciting. Can now see the wood for the trees. As a friend said recently my garden is coming back to life again.

Have  a good week everyone.

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
