Re: How does your garden grow?

I found some berberis growing in a clump of something else. We got rid of the one in front of the downstairs toilet window, but it has started shooting again, so that is a task waiting. My pink camellia is full of buds, and some have already opened. The bramble is back in the wash house for the night.

Re: How does your garden grow?

Because of a frost warning, the bramble has spent a second night in the wash house. I have cut back some roses in the churchyard, and also in my garden, just hoping I haven't killed them off! Edged two flower beds, and removed some dead grass around one of my roses. Everything is springing into life...

Re: Where's Tabatha?

In the past I have had both neutered male and female cats, but never heard those terms mentioned.

Re: Looking for thick cord trousers

Thanks Manda. Have just had a quick look. The trouble is that a lot of corduroys nowadays are thin, and I have really warm ones! The jogging bottoms I bought are really warm, not very attractive, I have to admit, but I almost don't want to be without them.

Re: How does your garden grow?

Brought the bramble in from the greenhouse this morning, now on the back yard. It has a tiny leaf near the bottom of the stem.

It's the old saying Mo, "dogs have masters, cats have servants" or something to that effect.

Re: How does your garden grow?

It isn't birds foot trefoil, I have that on the front lawn when it needs cutting, and love it. It has tiny leaves, and a star shaped yellow flower.

Re: Where's Tabatha?

She seems to be coming round Mo. My last cat was kept in for three weeks, but I walked into the kitchen one day, and found her climbing back in through the very high window! No idea how long this had been going on.

Re: How does your garden grow?

Your milkman would have had a shock Mo, if you hadn't shifted the cuttings.

Birds foot trefoil rings a bell, I will look it up on the internet.

Re: How does your garden grow?

I brought several small plant pots inside when the weather turned much colder. The bay windowsill in the front room took some of them, the rest on a tray nearby. I had planted pansy seeds in some of the pots, but it seems that I have grown a tiny trefoil like plant, one of them with a dainty yellow ...

Re: Where's Tabatha?

She will be terrified Mo, won't she. She is a lucky girl to have found a good home.

One of my rescue cats managed to scratch the tape off the cat flap, and it took three days to get her back into the house.

Re: Looking for thick cord trousers

I have ordered some jogging bottoms, hopefully fleecy as described. They should arrive today, we will see how warm they are.
