Grandaughter must be in tune with George, she was up at 4.30 which meant the rest of us were too.  Think she is cutting back teeth, but will she swallow her medicine, will she heck as like, anyone would think we were trying to poison her.

If you've still not settled Edd, Ive a few things at home that could do with a clean, how about starting with the oven.

I have a weed similar to the frilly one in the picture, if you leave it you get tiny pink airy flowers, have no idea what it is though.

I have a number of them Fishy, some think they are a little outdated but I think they give good sound advice in plain english.

Evening all from freezing Worcester.  Had a lovely day with granddaughter, went to Rythm and Rhyme and played with tamborines, triangles and drums

Sorry to hear folk are poorly, you'd think all the bugs would be dead with this freezing weather.

My brother had a lab who used to roll in horse poo at every opportunity.  He was a mad thing and used to 'fight' my brother on the floor.  We were walking him in the Clent hills one Sunday afternoon when he disappeared behind a large bush.  We heard a loud scream and found him diving on top of a courting couplen 'fighting', and yes he had been rolling in horse poo about 3 minutes earlier. Don't think they were very pleased

Not the high maintenance one - That was from When Harry Met Sally - Edd got that one.  It's this one

'They are not chasing me out of my house, they are not - I picked those drapes'.

Verdun with a bit of luck Ill get flowers from May right through to Autumn, I'm looking at planting a late flowering clematis through the lilac (when it gets a bit bigger) to  extend the season even further. 

Look at Corydalis 'Saphire' Lizzie27. Thats happy in a shady location and doesn't like it too dry.

Wait until they have a pair of true leaves (not just the first tiny seed ones) and then prick them out carefully and pot them on into small pots using ordinary compost.

Just been to see mum, she was in a bad mood because she had received a letter from the clinic asking her to attend for a test to check for dementia as an early diagnosis is beneficial.  She insisted on knowing who told them she was senile, anyone would think I'm past fit.   She's 93 in a fortnight

What's on your wishlist?

Love that holly Dove might have to add it to my list,  I also love Lady of Shallot.  I have a black lace and it's beautiful. Looks beautiful next to my Mortimer Sackler rose by the garden arch.
