    Very nice, I could never grow them down south (they grew too much and went all floppy), hopefully I will have better luck here.

    ‘grew too much’ … I’ve heard that before and up to 30ft according to a google search last week. I’m gonna take a cutting from Pat but she did warn me they’ll be in the garden for ever!
    I didn’t know they were called Sedum too Darla – blogging is so educational, I love it :o)

    Your pictures look very artistic, can’t believe it’s autumn already! We still get a lot going on in the garden though don’t we, right up until it gets frosty and then I get my winter jasmine and a winter flowering clematis.

      when it gets frosty my garden will be bare – winter jasmine and clematis sounds lovely

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
