Just dawned on me that I can't tell the time! Should be 17.59, Kef.
Ha ha Tina. You must have done too much today. I wondered why you said 15.59.
Tina- it's your age luv....
Not sure what my excuse is then....
KEF- think it was just a multi purpose- Levingtons- with lots of horti grit mixed through. That's what they're top dressed with too. Wrists not too bad thanks but weather rubbish so posts will need to wait till tomorrow. Should have done them this morning since I was awake at 5..
Verd-I'm only half English thank you.....
In from work at 4.40 and quick change then sow a packet of Cosmos mix seed now for dinner then out to build a bench for the greenhouse we finished on Monday. It's great to see some colour in the garden now after that great day on Tuesday here got pinks & blues Cornflowers out in the front garden both Azalea's now starting to flower nice pink colour in greenhouse in tubs plus Fuchsia buds turning red just need more heat please. Going by all the post everyone busy now the weather has picked up more so down south but hey us up north don't worry our turn will come soon and will last i hope due a good summer.
Morning all it's bright but fresh here this morning sun trying to get out forecast for weekend not good just have to be inside work then. Well it's off to work now got a health & safety walk round with the council and fire brigade no doubt i will get asked plenty questions as normal. Then back home at 6.30 for my dinner and some gardening all weekend no matter the weather jobs to be done inside and outside like everyone else have a good weekend all keep gardening.
Morning Dove think both of us posted at same time nice and early have a good day.
Good morning all Grey, cloudy and windy here - rain was forecast but we've not had any and the water butts are empty some rain this weekend would be good
Morning all, I see there are 7 kitchen spams on "New discussions" again this morning! They certainly are persistent!
7 kitchens and an artificial grass - at least we've a little variety this morning
Morning all. Fell asleep on settee last night ..hopeless
Dove has done her monitoring duties again Sue-think we need to make her a cake...
Will hopefully get some fence posts done today and more holes dug too in between phoning council to get my money back that they took... If I owed them a tenner they'd be round knocking on my door but when they wrongly take over £100 from mine over a month ago there's no urgency to return it. Fed up with these organisations. Might go down there with my pickaxe...
Hope the wind has settled for those who've been battening the hatches.
Wind has settled now - looking forward to a weekend of gardening. Meant to be showery - but like Andy, have jobs both inside and out, so should work out fine.
Happy Friday !
Morning chick.Saw your post from last night about getting some Thalictrum. I had the purple one and it was lovely-the buds were like little bunches of grapes! It's really useful in a border but it's light enough to use like Verbena bonariensis as you can see through it. Nice foliage too.
Wet here, no wind and warmish. Chauffeur today but hope to pot oN lettuce and do some pruning. Impatient to get my tender stuff planted.....as the daffodils die down the available spaces are seen.
Enjoy your days folks
Byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! See you later
Verd- just shows the differnt conditions we all have- the daffs are just coming into their own up here really. I've been cutting the ones I've got for vases inside as I need to move most of them, but everywhere I go they're just bursting into life. I suppose we're used to it being later here anyway but it's a cheery sight nonetheless.
What will you put in where yours are finished?
Tina, 24hr clock, it took me ages to get my head around that, still think in O'clock, same with feet & inches, my Mum is better with metric measures than me. Saying that I do know pints v litres..wonder why that is ?
Nice border Trifid House.
Fairy ta for Pasque potting info.
Breezy, cool & damp here, but yesterday's rain has made things shoot up. I'm sure the lilies are growing as I watch them. Gunnera( spelling looks dodgy) is unfolding, wish it would hurry up I could use a new umberella. Nothing really to do in GH and don't like the wind so maybe a day off, after I've inspected and no doubt seen something needing attention.
I'm lucky with weeds only have to contend with my own, neighbours are keen / tidy gardeners.
Hope you all have good day.
Forgot my manners. Hello to new people on the forum. I know it made me feel good when I got a welcome.
2 more , now i was too late to catch the earlier ones but they seem to be gone already. looking wet here again, will be having a quiet weekend, just checked my wallet and had to check the bank account too still not too much needed between now and pay day.
think i will be doing a few more window boxes due to having a lot of bedding plants wanting to go out somewhere.
I'm still here blackest-having a second piece of toast..
KEF- I'm still feet and inches but not bad with metres etc. as I was at school when the changeover happened. Getting better with grams instead of pounds and ounces but hopeless with litres as I'm still pints... but i don't drink so maybe that's why
