Evening all. Pentillie we've just been saying recently that we haven't heard from Frank and a few others for a while so hope they're all ok. Hope you've been fine too. What have you been up to?
Panda - I just thought that was a pic of you and the hanging basket was the gift....
Been out a-fixing and a-footering around with more fence bits. Removed one of those metposts- didn't have to get older daughter to help with it either! She put the extra hinge on the side gate though so she was quite happy.
Just waiting on dinner cooking. Moroccan chicken.
Panda that's hysterical I love it! Fidgetbones I bake but I never eat what I bake!! I would be the size of a house as I bake 3 times a week for community groups.. Plus I do the 5:2 diet ( 2 days a week only eat 500 calories) and they always coincide with my baking!! Well didn't get much done in the garden today although I did discover a guara ( that I thought was dead) growing from under my Xmas box hurrah cause I love them. I dug 2 out of the other border a couple of weeks ago an potted them up cause they weren't in enough sun so they will go with the survivor. Am going to plant my heuchara seeds tonight and put seeds in envelopes for people who I have seed swapped with. Oh and home made chilli sauce for gardenmaiden.....
Fairygirl tht sounds yummy... Right gotta move the sprinkler enjoy your evening people
Thanks Mrs G and Fairygirl - I'm fine but been busy in allotment, and running around for my daughter who is not well and faces a few months of heavy treatment. Wife and I have spent a lot of time taking the weight off her shoulders - especially the 3 and 5 year old daughter and son. At the moment I never seem to know what day of the week it is!
sorry to hear about your daughter P, hope things are ok soon.
Spent yesterday sticking labels next to perennials to avoid disturbing them next spring, who's betting they go walk about!
Friends over tomorrow (just found out via OH) so lots and lots and lots of HW to get on with, but hopefully child friendly pub for tea - so I won't have to cook.
Have a good evening all.
Good evening all
Good to see you Pentillie Positive thoughts to your daughter and 'more power to your elbows' to you and her mum for helping out with the little ones at this difficult time ((hugs))
Difficult day at work, but other's problems help put mine into perspective - after all, not many weeks left to work now!!! Then I can start planning the pond and the new front border in earnest.
Stacey - would have enjoyed one of your cakes today! OH organised not one! Hopefully will have one tomorrow when out with the olds.
Best of love to your family P - hope things get back to normal soon for you all.
FG - my, my you are a cheeky one
Pentillie I hope you're not too worn out. Very stressful for you.
Had the chicken- quite enjoyable. Relaxing now. Dishes done but a couple of school shirts to iron. Best do them or I'll forget.
Pentillie good to have you back but sorry to hear about your daughter.
Tina have to agree with you about it getting dark very early.
Happy birthday panda - that photo should become your avatar!!
welcome back Pentillie - echo what others have said about your daughter, and hope all is well soon.
had the stumps of our ex-leylandii hedge ground out today. Now it just needs several Landrover's full of horse muck and my veggie patch will begin to start taking shape. Won't be planting anything there for a while ( got a fence to get up first), but its nice to see a plan coming together
too much excitement here tonite. Farmer next door has sent light to his combine harvester. big bangs when the tyres exploded, 2 fire engines. couldn't get a close view but assume all workers OK as only fire brigade, no ambulance
Nut !! Drama indeed
hope everyone is indeed ok (and insured!)
Ooh that sounds expensive. Wrong time of year to blow up a combine harvester.
Last year some idiot was running up and down the A617 setting light to haystacks.
As if it wasn't a bad enough year for farmers.
very expensive, still several fields to cut as well, very late this year. Glad the wind wasn't coming our way, there's an uncut field between us and the incident. could have been our turn next.
Just read this....thoughts are with ??ou pentillie
18.35 and first again..... Woohoo what a great warm day.... Are we going to have an Indian summer I wonder.... Not much in the garden tonight picked some toms with BER not many but more than I would like... Planted some fox gloves i have received from the seed swap in pots and the heuchera in the cold frame... Watered a few bits but the garden had a good soak last night so..... Spotted the first jewel like redmof a cherry bomb chillie I grow mine outside from April so they are a wee bit slower ripening but it really is like a jewel glistening..... Well GW mag just arrived so cup of tea and a read before lo bed time me thinks..... have a nice evening folks
Hello stacey looks like many not on here tonight.
Had a bit of a rest today a little look around garden, as I was brick bashing yesterday in garden so needed a rest was hot here today
seed swap so good like sending seeds and getting different ones
Cup of tea sounds nice might go get one
Hiya folks. Where's Verdun? .
It's been a glorious day today. Pleasantly hot. Fragrance of jasmine, honeysuckle, lilies and heliotrope.....oh, and curry plants.....wafting around the garden. Loads of bees and cabbage white butterflies but only a very few other butterflies
Foodbank again today......not fond of being indoors when it's so nice
Hello Verdun it is not fair when you want to be out in nice weather but stuck indoors
lots of white butterflies in the garden spotted a green caterpillar in the garden today on the nasturtium leaf nearly did not see it
Evening all- well thefew who are about
I just couldn't sleep last night....still awake at 6am. Had a short sleep, then at nine went straight out into a very hot garden. Lay on lounger much of the day.
Then had a brilliant idea to move pots that are big and right in the corner around . I moved one with Lady Boothby right to corner as I don't need tobe able to get to it. Then move one with clematis along so I can get to it to deadhead and try to encourage to grow the way I want them to next year. That took ages!
Then to fat club lost one and a half pounds....happy about that.
All I've done since being back is watch that lovely Mr H whilst catching up on here.
Now watching a prog about midwives...then to bed
