    Bojo will probably cancel Christmas this year. I read somewhere reliable,Β  like The Star, there's a Christmas pudding shortage already, caused by panic buying. Well, not in this house, as we always have a couple kicking about from previous years.
    Regardless, Chris Whittless will probably say Christmas puddings are bad for you and next to useless in a pandemic, then produce a chart showing more people are hospitalised after consuming puddings than those who just eat regular seasonal food, like kale. o:)
    In the village yesterday a group of us were counting all the folk who had died this year. We came to the conclusion it had been on the cards for most of them for years; either that or dementia. Then we realised most of us were over 70, so we hurriedly talked about something else!Β  :DΒ 
    Looks like another 'Curate's egg' day today. I didn't realise curates laid eggs, especially the male ones, but ours is definitely female here, which is more than I can say for 2 of the 3 Rhode Island Reds we raised......Someone mention Christmas? My memory isn't what it was. :/
    Hahaha genuinely laughing out loud, ty for the great start to the day 😹😹😹
    Just my opinion, no offence 🐈

    Sunny morning, I just maybe take some hardwood grape cuttings but no rush.
    Trouble with lock down & now hiding self shielding I've nearly run out of suitable compost and don't really want to drive miles to the likes of B & Q to buy just one bag with all the CV hassle that may entail

    I do have old stuff around & cuttings don't need require much nutrient until they strike & grow, which is not likely before next Spring, so I'll probably use old grow bag stuff for the time being

    Best to be safe πŸ‘.

    Been nice here today too, actually saw that big ball of heat for most of the day and managed to do some odd jobs around the garden.  Got a busy weekend coming up but not garden related 🌞

    It's lovely out there today, so I finally got to plant the eucalyptus, plus half a dozen other things. :)
    Yesterday I had a nice surprise when I walked down to the stream and found our new neighbour there had felled one of his large edible chestnut trees, letting in lots more light. o:)Β  Now, if he'll just do the other one....
    Encouraged by that, I'm going to wade up the stream and plant some more geraniums in a minute. G phaeum does well down there, but the common ones are as dull as ditchwater, so I've multiplied-up some phaeum album and a named one, 'Joan Baker.'
    Also bulking-up 'Beth Chatto' for the same job:

    Crumbs are just crumbs. Don't be grateful to those who stole your cake!

    You've got a great day for it @Davesnave 😎

    I've been sat on my backside all day long, had a dreadful nights sleep and have been totally devoid of anything faintly resembling energy today, such a waste of a day πŸ˜₯

    Hiya D, both geraniums look like great choices (winging it as I have no idea lol) πŸ˜‚. Chestnut trees remind me of my school days as there was a very large one right in the middle of the school complex... aah the memories 🚸

    Poor you C, hope that's a one off for you 😒

    Been nice here today so decided to boss my OH around whilst he had a go at fixing our back gate which had broken in the winds we had the other week.Β  Think he's glad I'm back to work tomorrow!Β  πŸ˜ƒ
