Just tried Bev's suggestion, and realised I would have to open some kind of account with google; give them my email address etc and on balance I think google knows quite enough about us all allready, without giving them any more info.
I know its past the curfew, but just had to say thanks so much for all the exam good wishes this morning - the vibes must have worked, as this one reportedly went "ok" (that's teenage speak for pretty good). Only another 16 to go !!
As a few folk mentioned earlier, there are some very nice people on this forum
Have to agree too Chicky, there are some nice people on here, some very nice people! Think that's why Verdun is giving us a holiday
Yep, only £500 a night....brekkie extra, of course ...lol
Morning all heavy rain and very windy here thinking of selling my car and buying a boat the plants that need sun i will pack and send down to Verdun to babysit till we get better weather. Most of my plants are still tucked up in the greenhouses and will be for a few weeks yet well off to work now have a good day all. Verdun me and the family went to a log cabin for 6 years when kids where young in Carbis Bay Cornwall great times kids still talk about it yet St Ives is my fav place down there love it.
Morning all - we're joining you with the rain today Andy (and all the rest of this week by the look of the forecast). Only compensation is that yesterday we had a full rainbow - first time i have seen one of those for years.
Want it to perk up by next week as I have a trip to Chelsea planned ......
Morning all sun's shining here in Norfolk but there's rain forecast later, so tomato plants will go into the mini greenhouse for the day as I've got to go to work.
There's a lot of snuffling and grunting coming from the inside of one of the hedgehog houses - wonder what's going on in there?
Dove - I think it's that Verdun's moved in with you- he heard there was cake going...
Morning all. Daren't look out the window after yesterday!
Andy- it's an Ark we'll be needing never mind a boat. Mind you, that'll make the trip down to Cornwall easier won't it...
If it's Verdun he's very small, quite noisy and he's in the wrong place for cake - they only get hedgehog biccies, peanuts, banana chips and mealworms out there - he'll have to come indoors and pull up a chair at the table to get cake
Good Morning. Bright & sunny here, still cool. Started off like this yesterday and then teemed down later on. Things looking refreshed in the garden and will inspect later. I still need to put up wigwams and continue weeding. Nothing to pot on as yet.
Dove, hope the hedgehogs haven't got colds. Seems most people I've spoken to have some sort of sniffles going on.
Oh just heard forecast, sunshine & heavy showers for today. If it wasn't May I'd feel cold.
KEF- I'm hoping today might feel more like March because yesterday was like January
Not much chance of doing owt in t' garden today by the looks of things. More drawing and doodling and planning then
Daughter's curtains need making...
Dove-do you have cake for breakfast....I'll get in the car right now...
Wet here. Still warmish. But very windy (the weather!) and very wet soon and for rest of the day
Andy, yes not too far from Carbis Bay.
No gardenIng planned today anyway but I guess the rain will help my newly planted stuff so every cloud has a silver lining!!
Every cloud Verd-we have them here....
Off to work now...Pouring here-the robin had wellies on when he came for his breakfast ...
Oh! Got agastache Blue Boa coming today. Not sure exactly where they will go but want to put one next to geum tangerine dream. Got a yellow santolina.......lemon fizz.....so prob put the other agastache behind that. So, I guess I do know where they are going..........
Always exciting getting plants delivered
Morning early birds and those to follow. Had a hissy fit last night as internet not working for over 4 hours. Bl..dy BT. Should have put my foot down and stuck with AOL.
I think someone has passed on their bug to me as I am feeling under the weather this morning. Headache, sneezing, generally woolly headed. Will be doing what I normally do - nothing.
Oh dear Tina, hope it's not a bad cold, keep warm, lemon and honey.
All Verdun's plants sound exciting. I have some of them but not the same varieties, not so much choice here in France. Though he said he had an echinacea Papaya the other day and I've just bought an echinacea Guava Ice, which is similar, a bit paler. Here's a google photo as I thought it looked rather pretty and unusual.
Good morning everyone. Just decided to leave Toms in G/H; it's too cold and windy for them outside. I suppose I'll have to start hardening them off again next wek when it may be warmer
Morning -Sorry Afties
late, WW day and OH temper day, and dog is unhappy, we think he's hurt but can't find where, sorry for himself and won't be left. OH went to fetch me from WW and son says he just kept yapping. Anyone any good with dog psychology?
Did I see we are off to Cornwall to see Verdun's garden?? I'm visiting Cornwall end of June beginning of July = is that any good for dates all?
Waiting for the high winds and rain Is anyone suffering it yet?
Brought toms, peppers and stuff into house last night will leave them here till this weather system has gone, then I really will have to set to and put them in their final resting places.
BL- are you sure that's a plant in your garden or is it the inside of Tina's head.....
We still have the wind and rain Matty- will gladly forward it.....
Afternoon all. Stupid Internet not working this morning. We have a gray day with light rain so far. None of the storms yet which have been forecast.
