Morning all, Dordogne forecast is the same as KEF's. Yesterday was hot. Going to finish off some planting before rain and before we go to England. Hosting a friend's birthday dinner party tonight and have a stack of ironing to do.
Damp and humid here. It has rained and have yet to check butt situation. After the first rain on Tuesday I checked the empty butt to find it still empty some twit () hadn't closed the tap.
Hopefully after yesterday will be a bit more. Dampness still benfits the plants though so saves the water but must do GH today
HW day as well I go dragging my feet
Morning anyone left. Diabolical weather and it's times like this I'm glad go be retired. Well, I'm glad all the time but extra glad today. Had plans to do things indoors, not HW, but another awful night has left me feeling like a wet rag. Perhaps I will perk up later.
damp last night but currently a bright sunny morning and pretty warm.
morning folks...on desktop today...someones borrowed ipad and laptop
going for nice lunch today with a few friends and family...should get back my ipad then too!
Morning. Dull day here again. I do want to try to get out just to do some deadheading but I sure won't be sitting out today.Wind forcast hope it isn't too bad.
Have a good day all
Here's photo's of the 3 plants i bought for £20 at the club outing on Tuesday night.
Geranium pratenese purple haze.
Incarvillea delayvi snowdrop
Primula pulverulenta crimson flowers. i've split into 4 bits.
Lovely plants, Andy, BUT WILL YOU PLEASE STOP WORKING SO HARD? You are making me feel inferior!
It's great when you buy a plant and find it can make more. Did it with a rudbeckia = 4 from one,
Then was given a white salvia. Took a carving knife to it as it was big and pot bound. Sliced it, then thought I had killed it as I sliced the growing tip, am pleased to say that the 4 pieces are now growing, and the little bits that were cut off by accident also seem to have taken, so now I have loads - just right for the white borders and aocuple of other places
Thanks GG it will be an easier weekend this one as i go for my chemo treatment at 9am tomorrow morning usually sick for a couple of days after treatment. Son & daughter taken me out for dinner on Sunday night for fathers day hope i feel good for that but i will just potter about the garden if weather is good if not it will be reading a book. Wife and girls at work are always saying i do to much but i hate sitting about always have to be doing something not a TV person never have been like the outdoor's and being busy right off back to work now.
Best place Andy, outside. Must be better for prolonging actice life than a TV. Have always hated TV. Occasionally watch GW on the PC but mostly forget.
Lovely photos Andy.
Hope you enjoyed your lunch Verdun.
Agree.. Andy & Nutcutlet,the best place is outdoors,as long as it is dry,I don,t mind wrapping up if it is cold,there is always something to do.It seems a waste watching TV when it is a beautiful evening .
We had rain forecast,but nothing so far so have had to go out and water,Very windy,have had to rescue banana plant which was getting blown about and bring it back into the conservatory.
Good morning all
Sunshine and blue skies here - we only had a little rain yesterday evening, just enough to dampen the soil.
I thought we were going to get more rain so at bedtime I suddenly thought that the white sweet rocket which is in full bloom would collapse in heavy rain, so I popped out with some canes to prop it up - and I nearly tripped over Hefty Hedgehog who was munching his way through the food I'd put out. He totally ignored my presence - obviously wasn't going to be put off his meal by a mere gardener
Lovely flowers Andy.
Have a couple of vases of wind-felled lupins! Also had to rescue some flattened phlox and peony (thankfully leaves, not flowers - those are staked) with canes and string. But could have been worse - at least no trees down.
Last GCSE for daughter this morning - maths, never her favourite - and then by lunchtime we can all breathe again! But if I read one more newspaper article telling me how easy and worthless these exams are, then I might just scream!!
Good morning all just in from watering the garden lovely morning now tea & toast chicky good luck to your daughter in her last exam have a good day all.
Good luck at the hospital Andy - really hope you are feeling better by Sunday for your FD treat.
Hope you don't feel too bad over weekend Andy
Chicky, maths, role on lunchtime.
Bright and dry here, no rain so hose out today. Supermarket run this morning and then into the garden. No idea what to do first, still got slight problem of where to put Polyanthus, but I'm working on it.
Have a good day all, for the workers it'll soon be weekend
Good luck Andy this morning.....all worth it to get well
Try not to squash your hedgehog Dove
Morning all. Weather not bad at moment but the rain is coming....I hope so ...don't want to water that grass
Hope all goes well Andy and you have a nice Father's Day- if anyone deserves that it's you
Chicky - totally agree with you when I hear them go on about the exams being easy. My youngest showed me her Maths homework the other day- she's just done her Standard grade exams and they've starting Higher work (like your A levels)....I couldn't even understand what they were trying to work out! I'm sure your daughter will be relieved just to be finished with the stress of it all.
Hope you have a better day today Dove and your colleague is alright.
Morning all! Quite grey here, the occasional speck of blue, but showers forecast. Posting at the correct time today, so hopefully I will avoid detention!! No work for me today woo hoooooo, having my hair cut this morning and then hope to do a bit more planting. Want to make my herb trough and might put the last few perennials I have hanging about in pots out in garden, if the soil isn't too wet. There's also a rose and an acer that I want to put into pots. Would appreciate some advice on both, especially the acer - I don't want to get it wrong. I'll start another thread for that.
Andy - lovely flowers, hope your chemo goes ok.
Chicky - know the feeling, we had the last GCSE on Monday and life has been so much more pleasant since then!
Have a good day all, see you later
HI Daisy- Verd will keep you right with the Acer...he knows everything
