Bye Dove- that final day's getting closer all the time 


good morning everyone.  warm and sunny here.  total blue sky but more breeze.  humid yesterday and overnight. if some of you arent getting the sun its fairygirl's fault.  her magic is waning..her wand is nothing more than a broken bamboo cane.  I'll sort this out and send the sunshine everywhere today.

i think dove is going to enjoy her retirement...detect she is looking forward to it...slightly!

wont be gardening today but on my travels will look in on couple of nurseries.  for what though I dont know...that gardener's itch to buy something new!!!!!!!

so have nice day folks

Cloudy here in North Staffs. Toddlers at nursery today so off for a pedicure while my Dad earths up my potatoes 


Only 15 C. in the greenhouse this morning. Will be working in the studio I think.

Morning or is it afternoon all. Hate to have to say it but scorching here again today. Went out to enjoy sun at 9am. Had to come in as got to go to doc in a while.

Blackest that is a great pic.

Enjoy your afternoon all



Just woke up again after 6 hours of sound sleep, a glorious day outside such a pity to have wasted so many hours of sunshine sleeping. Worth it thou to get such a nice camera last night. There is an inch thick manual with it so a bit of light reading and coffee called for and better get some water in the greenhouse before everything cooks.  


I haven't had an email for Morning Forkers since 30th May, so have lots of pages to catch up on. As I post on several threads I hadn't realised. I wonder what else has been left out? Got a bit further than Blackest's lovely photos of wild garlic, so will read the rest in between gardening drink breaks. It's a lovely day today. 


Glad you're getting some sun BL 

I sense a pretender to my throne.....Verdun doubts my powers......One ring to rule them all....He will pay........broken bamboo...

sorry .....I've taken that too far 

My wand needs a re tread - it's all cloudy and thundery looking here! will try and get some stuff done outside anyway.


FairyG Missing her preciousssss?


Double dose of faiydust here,it has been so hot today........... thanks Fairygirl.

Painted cool glass on the greenhouse to try to keep the temp down a bit as tomatoes looked a bit droopy.

Potted up some coleus,and spent rest of afternoon sitting under a paarsol in the garden.. 

May make up a jug of Pimms later.anyone fancy a glass?


Gilly- parasol????? PARASOL?????? I've got the sodding rain now.....

Where's that wand.....


Have you got the wand the right way up Fairygirl?.............upside down could bring rain


oh dear! does your wand really have powers Fairygirl?  I am sorry for all the wicked things and asspurs, asper, aspershuns, asp...all those doubts I have expressed about you.  I think someone has used my name to make those remarks.  prob Tina but that's just between us of course.



Could do with a glass of Pimms, Gilly. 25° and sunny today, done lots of weeding, arranged support for the peas and weedkilled the drive.



What's happened to Tina? Is she on tour?

The potty gardener

Fairy, Tina has been quiet today..............has she been posting using your name?


Was wondering that myself...hope she's not unwell - she wasn't feeling too great the other day. 

hope she is ok.
