Can't remember which days I call in or not at moment.
Having a break from wedding cake, had panic the other day so should be OK now. Have to have at least one major panic!!
Finding this humid weather difficult for rolling icing andb it is all taking ages to harden off as well.
Walked round garden and it needs a really good day or so on the weeds but can't see it happening just yet
Overrun with lovely courgettes, tomatoes are finally beginning to turn and I have cucumbers coming - never managed them before so.
Disaster has been my peas and beans of all sorts - I have no idea what I did wrong this year
Back to butterflies, nice break to call in on you lot.
Is any one else having trouble with last posted not updating? Last post on my computer was 3pm. yet the postings I made after are there under new discussions.
The garden is full of life.
differing sorts of bees, hoverflies, dragonflys.
large white(lots), small tortoiseshell, a couple of peacocks (butterflies). They seem to be mainly on purple flowers. The tatty wallflower bowles mauve, lavender, teasels, and the pale purple seedling buddleja instead of the pink, white, or orange.
Meconopsis and dactylorhiza media planted. Phew. and loads of foxglove plugs.
We seem to have another load of baby bluetits. The young woodpecker still hasn't got the hang of the fatblock. He lands on the birdtable first and sidles down on to it. The adults just go for it.
Sausages in a bun for tea. And a glass of wine.
FB, thank goodness you posted. Was beginning to think something had gone drastically wrong and it was the weekend and no-one working.
I hit F5 and it reset itself, in case yours is still not working correctly.
You've just solved my tea, but without the wine.
Back again because it was a quick fix!!
hot threads is working but not the others
Yep, same here, been wondering where you all were.
Good morning all.
Last night was one to remember, or rather forget, what a storm. Can see a few plants flattened and hoping they'll be ok when they dry out. Currently sunny and 15C. Not been out to fully inspect as I feel in need of a strong cuppa first.
Have a good day all.
Rain has stopped and garden is nicely refreshed. No more branches down. It is cool and cloudy and I should think there'll be more rain. It is good day for planting, though, and I've a few things to put in. There's an amazing lack of weeds because of the hot, dry weather, but I could do a bit of weeding, too.
Have a good day, everyone.
We had terrible storms last night as well KEF,thunder and some of the most spectacular lightning seen for a long time,by nine last night it was virtually pitch black.Have also put off plant inspection,will join you in a strong cuppa.
Sunny,but fresher this morning, currently 19C.
Have a good day everyone.
Hope this is working today
Sunny and very nice here this morning
Couple of plants different from what I expected......labels got mixed up I think when i repotted. Not the end of world...varieties of echinacea but now they are flowering I can see the errors. They still fit in well, I think
Keep healthy folks
Good morning folks. I'm still refreshing every page I open but now I know that's what's needed I can deal with that.
Lovely bright morning, no storms though some were very close yesterday, I could hear the rumbling of thunder.
Hi, GG & Gilly..yes it was spectacular Gilly. Hope your plants are okay. Had an inspection and not as bad as I thought, some battered beans but ok, Buddlejas will need some attention, snapped branches. Peas well flattened but they were almost at and end so it will make me clear that area ready for some winter veg. Cosmos had a battering but at least they staked.
I'd fed most of the plants in pots yesterday so I'm hoping it hasn't washed straight through.
Off to SM and then do what is needed.
GG bet the weeds pop up now thought about you during GW with the rampant wisteria, I'd always fancied one, now changed my mind.
Hi, Verdun & Nut, didn't press F5 so didn't see you here.
Morning . Is anyone there or have we been taken over by aliens?
Morning, Kef, Fidget, Verdun, Nut and Gilly. Iterested to hear about the broken branches of buddleia. Maybe the explanation for all my broken branches is merely rain.
Looked at the stumps of wisteria yesterday. Couldn't even find some of them, growing through another upright shrub. What the dickens can be done????
Well, not ultimately my problem, I suppose...
Scary. Morning all. Hope you are OK about my new thread last night. Seems some of you are OK today, myself for the present, and others still experiencing difficulties.
Rain during the night, but others got the thunder and lightening. Very different day altogether as it is quite cool and breezy, but I'm not complaining. Somewhat of a respite and will enable me to get outside in comfort. Got some plant moving to do. Know it's probably not the right time but I have to do these things when the mood takes me.
Keeping my fingers crossed that this is going to post OK.
Morning all. Mine seems to be working without pressing f5 so hope the gremlins have worked themselves out now- obviously not completely if some of you are still having to do that. Perhaps we need to contact Daniel anyway and see if it can be addressed properly. I'll send a PM and ask anyway.
Hope the storms haven't done any irreperable damage. We had them a couple of weeks back during the morning but my plants were all fine thankfully.
GG- just watched G's W- I didn't realise Wisteria could be such a thug so I sympathise! Don't knacker yourself trying to get it under control. As you say- not your problem really. You've done enough
Damp here- a lot of rain through the night and it's to clear up later. Now regretting not doing the grass last night! I was too lazy
Storm damage inspected,not too bad,luckily like KEF had staked Cosmos a few days ago.Sweet peas blown partly off supports,so have just retied them,and various bits of shrub/small trees across the lawn,could have been a lot worse!.
Sun has disappeared.and it is now very cloudy,looks like rain.
I have no grass to cut Fairygirl,just an interesting yellow area at the moment.
Morning all - today's job is also to prune the wisteria ! This one is a standard though, so easier to keep it under control, as I can reach it all. The one on the house is given free rein (until it moves up the chimney and interferes with the TV receiver - then OH is up that ladder like a shot!)
Loved the irises on GW - thought of FG when they showed that blue/black one !
Definitely not working correctly for me FG. I am going to break my laptop if I hit the F5 key much more! Also Kev is still showing as the last poster and this thread is the 3rd one on the list. What about anyone else?
Still having to use F5 all the time - but once you get the hang of it, thats ok. Suspect there will not be any fixes til Monday ...
