Mine is still intermittent  Have worked out if I go to followed threads and go to last post then hit refresh it seems to work.

hope we all had a good day and are enjoying a rest this evening

Hmm yes, does seem to need refreshing - but then don't we all ..... from time to time 

23 more working days 

I managed to spend an hour in the garden when I got home this evening.  I'd popped in to the GC just to pick up some compost and a few more half seed trays - but they'd got a sale of veg and flower seeds on so I grabbed some Cosmos Antiquity looks gorgeous, and some sweet peas Sweet Chariot, and then couldn't walk past the trays of the sweetest little Violas, Sorbet Yellow Frost

Totally irresistable - 6 for £3.49 

I've put some in three little pots in a tray to go on the table on the terrace now, and three more I've potted into an alpine pot and cut hard back so they should form stocky plants for later in the winter.

Hello all, this is probably not the right time to be here, but want to see if it's working. Haven't posted much recently, hectic social life.

Evening Forkers! 

Refresh, refresh, refresh! This is my new mantra 

Pleased as punch that my 100 free alliums arrived today. This takes my bulb count up to 283, and I feel I need more daffs if I want to do the down the path idea of Mrs G's

Pressed Ctrl and F5 and the latest posts appeared. Daniel Haynes, the editor told me that. I am having trouble with my messages and clicking on my avator pic too. It shows Wyre Forest, you have to click on Forum posts to get me.

Saw the autumn trees, none here in Dordogne yet, not usually until November.

24/09/2013 at 19:50

Still not working.

24/09/2013 at 19:55

BIZLIZ, how can there be any A***** trees? It's not November yet. None in the New Forest either and I am well north of you.

24/09/2013 at 20:04

Try again here ?????

24/09/2013 at 20:07

Hello you lot.

24/09/2013 at 20:07

Good evening folks.  To get forum functioning I submit a blank message and it seems to work after a fashion!  

At foodbank I collared cream donut and a choc bun........and, because I was deemed to have done something "nice" I was given a bag of buns as I left.  Hee hee hee.  (I may have dropped hints that I like buns....)

Been glorious day for most part. Potted up few more plants and took more cuttings.  But, everything is so "summery" it doesnt feel like a............ ( didn't say that word so I'm ok, right?) ..........  I reckon there are more flowers now than in mid summer, well, loads more.  

My order for more heleniums was confirmed today but won't receive them until April I think.  Suits me. ,more space to overwimter stuff

Oh, bit of humour!  Got another sales pitch call today...already told them not to ring again.  So I just sang a jingle in a silly voice followed by "please leave your message now" in an equally silly voice. The caller tried repeatedly to leave a message but my repeated jingle etc. left him no time to leave a message.  Had to stop though as I and friend in the kitchen started to giggle.   Childish I know!  It was fun and it cost the caller  more too.  I think they won't call again   

Right!  Let's see if this works............
