Hey.....get the gold medal. Last last night and first this morning.
I hope the first prize is lots of money...am so excited
Morning FORKERS. Obviously rained last night but it's bright so far
Going down to tidy up friends garden.....she is going into hospital next week so make sure it's ship shape. Different sort of garden but I have put my stamp on it. You can see the size 11's all over the borders.....ha ha. Often take my dog.....Monty copies ME with Nigel, lol....but prob leave him behind this morning. He will get his run later
Hope weekend is good for everyone
Good Morning all. Hiya Verdun.
Rained overnight and not tested how wet things are yet, so not sure what's happening in the garden today.
Going back to Morrisons with a pack of Garlic Naans that are totally mouldy, YUK, use by 1.7.14, might just have a de-tour to GC on the way back, would be a waste of petrol if I didn't.
Hope everyone has a good weekend.
Morning all good for you Verdun helping out your friend that's what good friends do am like that to would help anyone same size of shoe as myself kids at school say it's no shoes i have it's skateboards. Great night out last night dancing ,singing and dressing up bet there will be some sore heads this morning got home at 3.30 this morning. Now after checking the garden it's tea & toast then up to mother in laws to build a bird station for her to look at out her window from the big chair so have a good day all.
Good morning all,
Have Verdun and Monty ever been seen together in the same room? It's strange that Verdun mentions plants that are then featured on GW. Last week it was geums.
I'm a bit worried about Nigel. He always seems to be lying down. Not normal for a young dog like him. It could be he's bored silly with the filming.
Have a good day all.
Pottie Pam, has Monty got any new trousers? Verdun has
Andy how can you be up so early after such a late night?
Weather here is the worst it's been for weeks- rainy and windy. Other son was going to come round and help me remove a store in the garden but don't think it will happen if it doesn't improve.
Hope everyone has a good weekend
Not good here and friends are getting married today! Hope the worst is over and sun is peeping. Off to shops, watering pots and deadheading on return.
Morning all. Pretty foul here too, but have lots to do, so think I will just put a hat on. It's the wind that's worse - think I might end up with more unexpected vases of flowers.
We inherited a leylandii hedge when we moved here - in a weird place cutting the garden in two ( ie not on a boundary) . We are in deciduous woodland so it always stuck out like a sore thumb. Half of it came down yesterday, the rest next week. Every time I walk outside I feel like the sky is falling in!!
Morning all. Bit late today but I've not been sleeping - just busy! Weather as per everyone else so glad I got so much done outside yesterday. Still aching
I think Andy is really Steve Austin.....wondered where he went...
Pam you're right..never seen them together!
Chick- does the garden look enormous now or empty?
KEF it would be positively irresponsible not to go into the GC. I'll have to see if I've got anything needs returning...oh yes- going to B's Merchant so that involves going past one
Morning all. Bev, what's your excuse for being so early today. I'm off to spend the day with a lovely friend. Such a shame that the weather is so poor, cold and wet, as I was looking forward to sitting in her pretty little garden, with all its fairies, toadstools and butterflies dotted about. Never mind, I'm sure the weather won't stop the jaws wagging.
Pottie Pam. What have you been doing with yourself? Was only thinking when I looked at the 'map' a couple of days back and your name popped up, as it always does that I haven't seen you around. Hope all has been well.
Andy, you're like a whirlwind. Do you ever just do nothing?
Shame my joke fell on deaf ears Verdun. One of the characters always used to say everything twice. No painting today. I think more swearing goes on than singing, usually at the numorous dogs and the clucking chickens. My garden is no longer a peaceful haven.
Hope the weather improves for the wedding WW. Should be able to count on good weather in June! I have just out my heating on.
Have a good day all.
PS Hi Chicky and FG. You weren't here when I started my post.
Blustery out there today. Yesterday my nxt dr neighbour retuened my butterflies that were broken all mended and better
But I am going to take them off their perch while this wind is blowing, don't want them broken again.
Nothing really planned, nature has watered except the GH, lawns were cut yesterday, may potter as we di if it brightend up. There is a big thing planned but that can wait until we return from holiday - cutting down the hedge - mixed shrubs - between the 2 houses to a manageable level
Morning Tina. Hope you have a good day with friend away from painting and...chickens??
The posts seem to jump around a bit don't they? Just like mine will be tomorrow.... kerr-ching!!
Hope it clears for the wedding Woody -always makes it better.
Daughter has friend staying over so I'll go out soon before the noise starts when they get up I'm kidding- they're good really!
Might watch G's W first to see if I can spot Verd...
FG, next door but one has chickens, bloody noisy chickens. I spend my time when I'm in the garden shouting at the top of my voice for either the dogs or the chicks to 'shut the .... up'. Naughty swearing. Not very ladylike.
Have reached the conclusion that gardeners have a very dry wit. Right load of comedians on here. Love it.
Right, breakfast and friends. Tata.
Of course I'm a lady so never use naughty sweary words...
Morning Matty- you'll need another holiday once you get that hedge done!
I might be wrong about Verd and Monty. I don't think Monty has a new pair of trousers. Would be spooky, though, if Verd's dog was a retriever.
Morning all. If anyone would like to see some photos of Great Dixter I've put them on Gardens we have Visited 2013 http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/talkback/gardens-we-have-visited-2013/80843.html
Having a quieter day today, weather not good anyway.
Rain. On my day off. Surprise.
I say Tina, I didn't get that,joke. I say I didn't get that joke. Ha ha.
You girls are too smart for me. Seriously, it's just coincidence about the gworld on gardeners world and me mentioning them.....honestly! Funny, cos I was going to start a thread on astrantias today but they were featured last night on gardeners world with carol Kleine. .....she is great but there was more of her talking, her expressions and her excitement than there was of the astrantias. Why can't we just HEAR her speak as we see the Astrantias, and more varieties of them, and captions of the varieties? I have several varieties and they are all such good garden plants. ....darn it, I will start a thread on them
Be good folks
.....oh, enjoy the day with your friend Tina
Back from B's M with some posts and a 25% discount so ...result! Explained about the wrong timber and website misleading etc and I didn't have to cry or pretend I was a feeble woman or anything...Heh heh..
Verd that's why I record G'sW. I find myself switching off when Carol's on as I find her distracting- now I can fast forward! You could press mute and have the subtitles!
Maybe you're just psychic Verd.
Bought a nice jaggy Silver Queen holly to stick near the front gate with the other jaggy juniper and fir I bought last week so will put that in later and dress with bark. Space isn't big enough for all three but I want it filled just now and I'll take one out as they grow a bit bigger.....if I stay that long.
