Been at work all day so it's nice to have a good evening thread.
Tomorrow I'm at the Grand National. Never been before or put on a bet, only ever entered the sweep at work. so it should be fun.
On a gardening note, I'll be able to check out the cut of the grass on the track and look at the floral displays in the winning enclosure
I've a couple of good tips for the main event......and apparently the riders are really important. Many ride in the run up races , I've been given tips on who to watch out for.
Really looking forward to it.
Zoomer, stay away from women in very high heels, they fall over a lot
I went to Wisley today. Had to collect someone from Heathrow so thought i would kill 2 birds etc. and have lunch and a quick look around. My favourite corner is the Alpine House which always looks good, especially at this time of year. Imagine my horror when I couldn't get into the AH...b****y Monty Don was in there filming for Gardeners' World. Not my favourite presenter at the best of times, and now it's getting personal. What's worse is that the AH looked better than ever... no doubt putting it's best foot forward for GW prog. But I couldn't get in!!
Time for bed said Florence.......
No gardening for me today. Made sandwiches for orchestra and some of the choir for supper before concert that OH was singing in. Made cakes yesterday. Packed it all up, fed performers, watched concert, got back half an hour ago unpacked it and OH and I have just been having a late supper with the remaining sandwiches. Concert went down well. They are repeating it tomorrow in another town.
In a very amateur way I am trying to grow some alpines in pots plunged in sand trays as at Wisley in my new greenhouse/Alpine house. They look good, and have joined the local Alpine soc. (Lovely people) Something to do and see in poor weather we have been "enjoying" Not.
Bought 5 new saxifrages at Wisley..less than £10. that's part of the beauty of alpines..everything is on a small scale.
Presumably this thread has to end at midnight? Will I be the last? I doubt it.
Evening Forkers... it will soon be morning! What a good idea Brumbull to start this thread. Just like to say to GG sorry for your loss, sincere condolences.
Today, I have taken a chance and removed the fleece covers from tender plants in the garden. Some of them were looking a little creased up but hopefully will raise their heads soon, it seems we are in for some well needed rain next week, the soil is drying out in my garden and I have even watered some pots, in the morning though as it has been freezing at night. Going to cut the grass tomorrow, its looking very tatty, and then give it a feed and weed dressing. Must not be too heavy handed as I dont want to burn the grass. Also trim the edges around the borders if I have some energy left.
Now, which thread should I be on, goodmorning forkers, or this one. Decisions, decisions.
Just realised Verdun, you are a night owl too.
