Boil a pan of water Stacey! Couldn't go without my cuppa (all be it coffee!)
Hello folks - not been on here today as out and about with visiting friend. Normal service should resume tomorrow evening as she's heading back to Gloucestershire tomorrow and I'm back to work in the morning. It's been a lovely weekend, but unusually social for us
Hope the picnic went well Dove
Glad Mrs G's tree did no damage, and well done Stacey for saving yours - hate to see a beauty like that go just because it drops a few leaves.
Revelling in the glory of Ashes victory here
Shame about your tree Mrs G, Stacey It breaks my heart seeing mature tree's felled start a petition to save it just to wind them up. Jon that is funny of you're old neighbour calling his home oak end. Though i'm sure it was not funny at time.
FG I will try the subtitles next week for beechgrove. normally i'm fine understanding accents, but that bee keeper guy lost me completely.
Anyways busy day for me today, unfortunately that was not in the garden. I've got time tomorrow but no doubt it will rain. I'm going outside in a little bit to see if I can see this comet flying over. Is anyone else bothering? Hope you are all well.
OH has comet alarm set - rest of family showing no enthusiasm for a midnight adventure!
Wow this comet is awsom. Hope you're OH is getting a good luck chicky. shooting stars everywhere i'm so excited just put kettle on and i'm going back outside.
That was a million times better than I thought it was going to be. I'm Impressed but cold.
OH and youngest daughter enjoyed it too. I slept through it
I slept thriugh it was well Chicky and missed it bugger do you think it would do a rerun for ME ??
Ffffffffffffirst......that's me. Get it posted. ,soooooooooo happy
Second too...I'm chuffed.
Busy day at,foodbank again. Picking loads of produce now. Moved some perennials to slightly more perfect situations..if they settle as they should, summer transplants are ideal as,you can place them exactly where you,want them.
Oh, good evening FORKERS
Lol Verdun congrats. Evening all.
Good evenig - just a quick pop in rather than a lurk
I have a magnificent oak tree in the bottom corner of my garden. It is not protected and at the moment 'safe' . The tree surgeon who does work for me says he would love to climb it just for the joy of having done it. Any way, it is not on mine or NDN property but we keep an eye on it. If at any time we feelit could be under threat we have agreed to have an order put on it. It is on private land but we think still feasilble.
It is a nuisance in autumn, but hey leaf mold, and we do get the odd small branch landing in our gardens - acorns hurt when they land on your heads
Any way had my say and am off see you all in the morning
Oo hello! I feel like the new girl at school! Nice here innit!?
Evening all. Welcome, Madame! Verdun, where do you get your energy? And I'm not talking about the gas and electricity!
Lost 2lb at Fat Club today and I'm gloating! Been to visit SIL with the perfect garden, no weed dare show its face. It looks lovely, I must say.
Hope everyone had a good day.
Evening all and welcome Felicite (love the name BTW!).
Just out to water my pots as they will be left to the mercies of OH tomorrow. I am off to Norfolk for a day to visit a special relative who is very sick. Sad times. Staying in a Travelodge so I don't have to drive the journey twice in one day.
If the sun is shining I will take a visit to Nut's nursery recommendation on the way home. My aunt is a great garden fan, so it somehow seems fitting, even if she can't come too.
And well done GG - you were worried about FC for no reason !!!
Chicky - have a safe journey and a comfortable stay here in Norfolk - sorry it's for such a sad reason - will be thinking of you.
Welcome Felicite P
Evening. Didn't feel like doing anything when I got back today so just cut some of the water lily. Won't stop growing! Still very quiet, ie, no dog, even though they are back. I'm not complaining.
Another strange thing was that 2 very fresh Belgium Buns dropped into my basket in Morrisons. Both gone now. Well, what's the point of saving one until tomorrow. Will serve me right if I wake up in the night in pain.
Well done GG. Now, did you remember to exhale.
Have a safe journey Chicky. Sorry it's going to be a sad one.
Personally, where trees are concerned, I think it depends on the size and where they are. Next door had 5 huge silver birches which caused one third of my garden to never have sun. I was pleased when he had them cut down as was several others as it has made such a difference to us. Big trees need big spaces.
OH got back from England safely, we ate outside, then watched "Love Your Garden". He fell asleep on the sofa, will have to wake him soon for bed.
Was weeding in the veggie garden and a big grass snake slithered past but I think it was more scared of me!
