Dove - I'm lucky enough to have seen Aida at the Arena di Verona and it was one of the most spectacular events I've ever seen. Will be keeping all fingers and toes crossed for you that the weather stays good!
Bumped a few threads up too but it's very wearing when you want to look at the posts from people who genuinely need some help or the the threads you're personally interested in.
Just a quick Good Morning. Got to do boring stuff today, we need to eat! So shops and some HW long overdue think we might get visitors tomorrow so house needs attention, it appears to slipped my mind the last few days
Have a good day all.
Dove I reported that one at exactly the same time as you! Yours has gone through anyway
Its very warm and humid. Sun trying to burn off cloud and it's supposed to be hot today.
Will cut lawns later but it's quiet in garden at moment.....still have loads of cannas, dahlias, salvias and grasses in large,pots. They will have homes at some stage.
Slugs targeting my salvias and dahlias at moment but Im aware of that and pop,out to,inspect these plants when dark. Just odd one or two but they all count. I do find the torch hunting dramatically reduces the slug n snail problem without the need for pellets
Having nice lunch later......might try and squeeze in another 18 doughnuts before that though
Nice again here, didnt manage to get to the weeding yesterday (yes i do keep making excuses) will try to do it today. Probably find something else to do though.
Have a nice day everyone.
Morning all. How lovely, Dove. Hope the weather keeps fine and you have a lovely time.
We are having a once in a lifetime type treat today. OH is taking me to Glyndebourne to see the marriage of Figaro this evening. Forecast was good for today, but it looks a bit damp and grey at the moment.

Wow, thanks Verdun - mower's in the garage
morning all just discovered a nice app for android phones and tablets called paper artist and it's really quite good. Especially if you have idea's to design your garden. Here is an example
As you can see it is quite cute in what it does this is from a photo I took a few months ago before putting much in there just a small bed in the corner, it works well with people too giving a kind of comic book effect to images. very simple to use you just select a photo and the effect, around 8 in all and its free too. I put it on a tablet but even on a phone with a tiny screen it would work there isn't anything to fiddle with. while it isn't a design tool as such potentially you could create brushes with things like fountains and shrubs by taking photo's reducing them to a sketch like this and positioning them on your garden photo or just print the picture and draw on it. Anyway thought you might like this
BizLiz...Dixter yesterday, Glyndebourne today... you are a girl after my own heart.. I am dying of envy. Love it, hope Husband has organised some nice food for the interval?
Is everyone happy that when someone reports Spam they put one post on to show it's been reported so that everyone else doesn't have to report it too? We have discussed this haven't we?
Lazy Gardener seems to be a bit agitated about it

Sorry-but this is out of order-please don't talk about me as if I cannot read
"We" do not run this forum-the are too many assumptions about authority being made on here-it is not a social club run by a commitee who can make decisions
My point is just by saying it is reported it is moving up the page-just report it.
Peace love and understanding to all fellow forkers, the angry trousers are in the closet. What time is it acceptable to have a cold one?
I suspect, and have suspected for some time, that we have one of the former trouble stirrers around.
I suggest letting it all go by
I apologise if I've upset anyone - only trying to be helpful - let's move on.
Fair enough-I take the point life it is too short-it is just when you come on here at a certain time -all you see is threads saying spam reported-lets leave it at that
Off to work
Phew, thank goodness that's sorted. Thought we had gone back in time. Stopped me posting.
Goodmorning anyone left. Exceptionally late today. Was very late to bed last night, courtesy of son and awake at 4 to make sure he got up to get to airport. When am I going to stop being Mother Hen?
Not even got Bev for backup today as she's off to meet up with BL. Have a good day both of you.
You too Dove. That sounds a good evening.
Have a good day everyone and, Verdun, 'a minute on the lips, a lifetime on the hips'
For what it's worth, I thought the understanding was that first one to spot spam reported it and the post could then disappear into infinity and beyond. There's certainly no 'committee' just a bunch of likeminded folk who, IMO, get on very well and make all newcomers very welcome. Being as Dove was the early bird she did what was necessary. That's all.
Fidgetbones was up first and did the first tranche, then Bluejan did some, then me - they were out in force this morning
It's pretty obvious which ones are spam, so if I see that someone else has posted on there I don't bother to open it
I had planned to do a bit of shopping before leaving to go down to Suffolk, but what with phone calls and window cleaners I'll just spend the rest of the morning being lazy - I'm going to be up late tonight.
The spam reporting was very efficient today. We've got it sorted.
I'm going to look at someone else's garden soon so that's an excuse not to get working. I expect there'll be a second coffee break as well. I'm on my first now, recovering from the effort of taking photos and hanging the washing out.
Dove, as long as they are reported, that's all that matters. I'm never up early enough to do it! Since it was 'agreed' that one person reports the spam it's way down the list when I arrive on the scene. It has worked well.
I'm still in my dressing gown! Not going to do anything today except change my bed covers. I'm being good to myself.
Have a lovely evening.
Hi Nut. Must be something in the air today.
Just typed a really long post and it disappeared.
I started by saying if squabbling starts again I'm off.
Was really upset last time and it took a while to come back, then only tentatively at first
Have spent morning feeding containers veg and strawberries. Will do GH tonight. Theory being that if I feed today and next wednesday things should be OK while away
Very envious of Aldeburgh and Glyndebourne, I really hope weather stays for you. Will sit in front of boring TV thinking about you.(sigh smiley)
Finally my eremurus is growing fast. As I can't remember what colour I chose I can be sure it will flower when I am away
