Oh it went back to normal, how weird.


Posted: Today at 04:24
Morning all, no I haven't made an early start, just couldn't sleep so gave up and came downstairs.  Went to see secondborn's new house which is a 1920's lodge on the edge of an estate (now a hotel).  It needs quite a bit of work but has lovely bright, airy rooms.  The garden is small but I suppose with a baby on the way and busy jobs they wouldn't have much time to spend gardening. Not sure what I've pressed but the font has changefd and I can't seem to change it, no idea what it will look like when I post it.

Recommend a good bird food?

I use Johnson and Jeff.  I order on line and get free delivery, it always gets eaten and smells lovely when I open the bird food bin, think it must contain aniseed.

How about this using your milk churn and white flowers

Evening all, Weather is awful here, had a horrible drive back from Firstborns, terrible traffic and very heavy rain. 

Glad you found the bracelet P'doc.

Sorry about the car KEF not a good time to have additional expense.

Have rebelled against Black Friday and have gone all day without spending any money at all, very pleased with myself.

Have just had a real good laugh.  Someone put a video called Footballers vs Stretchers.   I expect they got it from Youtube.  It was hillarious.

Off for a browse.

P'doc Firstborn lost her engagement ring whilst gardening.  A few years later her daughter found it when she was making mud pies. Never say never.

Goodnight everyone.

I have three Canna Durban, Shenandoah (spelling) and Ehemannii.  They are growing in pots and I have just bought them into my very small greenhouse to overwinter.  Should I cut them down now to about 6in or leave them alone.  They are very tall and take up an awful lot of space.

Afternoon everyone, Didn't get to sleep until about 3 this morning so didn't get up until 11.30  I suppose the day will be all out of sorts now.

Dark and dismal here but at least it isn't raining.   Have to pop and see mum in a minute but other than that the day is mine.

Sorry to hear your bad news P'doc.

Off for a browse round.  Stay safe everyone.

I'm lucky enought to live 1 mile away from Ashwoods Nursery at Kingswinford which is the best I have ever been to.  Excellent choice, really knowledgable staff and I can honestly say that in all the times I have visited I have never seen a diseased, dying or droopy plant. (The cafe sells the most fantastic homemake cakes too)
