I'm not getting any notifications either!
Late today, very late today, been tying sweet peas up and watering, and messing trying to post pics that will enlarge.
Scorcher again, but can't complain, cloud due tomoz.
Hope everyone's ok. I think I can here by patio chair calling.

Is Bev the lone gardener? I didn't guess. Saw her on another thread, didn't click on profile as they aren't working. I'm not getting notifications now, was yesterday.

BL, found out, quite by mistake, that if you click on the avatar and then on 'forum posts', up pops poster's posts. Awful lot of posts there. I recognised them as Bev's. Profiles still not working and it has to be nearly 2 weeks now. Perhaps we should bombard Daniel with messages.
Strangely, I AM getting notifications and I have opted out!
That's a good piece of info, TT. Thanks.
Prehaps those of us that want notifications should opt out .
Sorry changed name but left avatar which I thought may be recogonised.
Know exactly what you mean about waking up tired Tina.
Good morning all I hadn't twigged that LG was you Bev, but then I'm usually half asleep when I'm on here
Gorgeous blue skies and golden sunshine here this morning Isn't this summer lovely
Morning Dove and all those yet to come.
Weather just like Dove- have a wonderful day all
Hurrumph! Someone's stolen my sunshine - sea fret and chill wind appeared suddenly - need my woolly now
See you all later .............
Morning all. Cooler here today and I think it's to be like that which is a bit of a relief after yesterday. Too hot for me to do much outdoors. Glad you're getting the sun now Dove.
Bev- I miss seeing your lovely name on the posts! I always picture you as a lovely grand duchess with slightly faded grandeur - a bit Jane Austen....hard when you're just 27....
the heat's starting to affect me..
I go on 'followed threads' but sometimes they don't work properly either, so I just go down the current ones and take a look. I think the site simply doesn't work very well sometimes - bit like most of us!
Good morning everybody.
Sweltering already. 81 forecast today. Could be more!!! No sign of it changing for next 5 days at least
Very warm last night....
Did woody announce that Cormwll beat Wiltshire in the cricket? It's only a game. But we did win, did I say that?
On my travels today I will be passing a little nursery so will stop off. We are driven I think to add more plants even though maybe we don't need them....yet!
Wont be gardening today.....maybe cut lawns this evening
Morning all, been out watering, won't have time tonight - going to OH's choir's party. Making salmon salad for it. Going out to do some more weeding and planting a couple more plants that I bought when in England.
Thanks Addict for yur response yesterday.
Still no notifications ,am now getting trouble seeing my own posts,so am only using this thread and evening forkers until it is sorted.
Really hot this morning,OH got up at 5.o.clock,temp in front room 22.9 degrees.
Can,t do much in the garden,may also cut lawns this evening,meanwhile a bit of deadheading is about as much as I will do.
May pop over to Mum,s later to help her pick raspberries and black and red currants,she usually makes some of the fruit into jelly,lovely on a scone with cream.
.Oh.dear did I mention cake this early.
Have a good day all.
Good morning. Shopping today but at least it's a bit cooler. So might make my lazy self do something in the garden later. Chillies need re-potting, toms & cumbers topping up, and some deadheading. Not exactly back breaking
p.s. I'm getting some notifications.
Morning all. Brief visit whilst having coffee at the Wifi cafe. Noticed I was already on line before I entered the code today. Now wondering if I'll get away with a brief stop in the carpark tomorrow. But the coffee's not bad.
Morning everyone. Already done a bit of bed changing before it heats up. Been awake since 4 so will probably flag in a while.
Gilly, don't want to appear as if I am teaching my grandmother to suck eggs, but if you click on your very lovely avatar and forum posts, they are there. Don't seem to be able to go back that far any more though.
Daniel has pm'd me that the Profiles problem has been fixed and be operational on Thursday. We will see. May I suggest, if you have not already done so, that you pm Daniel with your problems. He will then pass these on to the techie bods. Apologies if you have already done so.
FG, I agree with you about Bev. I think her new name sounds rather sad. She's like that lonely little petunia.
A belated good morning! Have been gardening in the early cool, determined to finish weeding and planting and clear up that patio before we go away on Friday morning. I'm now much clearer on what needs to happen to my existing borders, which are very crowded with the wrong things. I'm letting the pink geraniums and lamiums and a couple of other things flower before I dig them out. They are rampant and messy! I also took my courage in both hands and pruned the acer, cutting off a couple of low branches. I hated doing it, but it is that or take it out. When everything has died back and I can see its shape, I may find I have mutilated it so much that I have no choice but to take it out anyway, but at least I have given it a chance. It is too big to move to a pot, too close to the house and casting other plants into too much shade. But it is beautiful.
OH has gone to get paint for sitting room, then we are off to the GC for more potting compost and topsoil. I am deterined to get the rest of the plants in today and clear that patio. Did I say that before? Smallest seedlings will go into the shade of the house wall, as will the hellebores, to grow on.
Starvation day today (lots of coffee) since the bad news at Fat Club yesterday!!
Have a happy and well-fed day, everyone!
Hi Verd, as a Hampshire hog I support Cornwall
Gilly -don't mention cake- and definitely not scones with nice fruity stuff and cream....!
GG -it's ok - we won't mention Fat Club.... Know what you mean about pink geraniums- I have quite a lot of them here and I don't like them but the bees do, so they can stay for now, as they're serving a purpose, before I yank them out !
Tina- I just realised when looking for something else that I actually replied to a post by Bev under her new name, because GG had done so, but I completely forgot I'd done it. I'm definitely losing the plot. I think she should call herself The Dowager. Shall we suggest it??
Woody - assume you'll be watching the Test Match- are they going to win? Aussies are a bit poor just now aren't they?
Verd- if you're on here later, thanks for your reply last night re the Hellebores.
Gosh...........it's sooooooooooooooo HOT. So indoors to sort stuff and check the forum.
couldn't resist buying a couple of coreopsis plants when passing a nursery today. Had to...eem! The owner looked like she needed a sale so couldn't disappoint her could I? Have perfect spot for them....after removing something else.....next to agastache blue boa and in front of echinacea marmalade. Bit corny but it look's nice ESP with agastache black adder just beyond it. They will all flower now to the autumn
