I'm not keen on chocolate cake, but I love cherries ...............

31/05/2014 at 19:14

Oh chocolate cake...now we're talking!! 

31/05/2014 at 19:16

Lily - don't mind at all, but (wiv me chef's hat on) I have to say cherries & chocolate compliment each other well....which is why I used them.

Any forum that encourages us to eat cake has got to be good

31/05/2014 at 19:21

A cake with cherries in has to be one of our 5 a day!

And chocolate is made from cocoa, and cocoa is made from beans - that's another of the 5 ................... and I've got a slice of lime in my Campari .......... we have a very healthy diet don't we?

Any left I have a bit of room ?

I missed it all....

Can I have some tomorrow David? Any of your cakes will do - they all look yummy.  How can you not like cherries lily....all the more for me though  

It's also the quality of the jokes here that makes this forum so good. Second to none...

I have to say I used to belong to another forum, but it was a nightmare, people were very rude about people's thoughts on what a plant may be, and what to do, and most the time it felt like i was a child from a divorced couple who were arguing all the time.  Such a contrast to this lovely forum ! 

I wouldn't be making my garden into what it is without everyone on here, your patience (oh no peanuts not another daft question, may be thought but is never said ).  I have in the last week started a Facebook group for local gardeners to ask advice, give advice, share plants and seeds and find out more about gardens and local offers on. I had to channel my obsession, sorry passion somewhere.

Anyway a week in and we have 100 members.  I certainly wouldn't have had the confidence to do something like that without all of your positive advice and support.  thank you !

I think both of those instances mentioned have made me realise what a great 'group' this is, but also the general sense of caring.  This week I have had a bit of upset and the messages from some of my 'friends' has cheered me up no end.......thank you everyone 

Thanks for the cake David....you're the best with super cake and sweet pea advice 

More Pimms anyone? I don't have a borage plant, maybe I should get one  I have mint in it, still grown by me

I'll join you in the pimms Orchid Lady, you've made me realise I need to plant some borage ! 

31/05/2014 at 22:39

Help yourself peanuts, I think everyone else has gone to bed part from us and Lily on the Forkers thread  It's not my suggestion about the Borage, I can't remember who said it now, Nutcutlet maybe? I've never used Borage with Pimms, in fact if I'm honest I've never used borage  I'll have to have a look and see what can be done with it

I too love to dip into this forum each day and see what others are saying,and, if I can offer some advice to those asking for help. 

I was unsure at first if I'd " fit in" but I hope my contributions have , on the  whole , been seen as well meant and good humoured.

31/05/2014 at 23:18

Wasn't me on the pimms OL, with or without borage,

I only drink real ale and white wine

Hopefully not together Nut

Think you definitely fit in Hostafan - if you weren't here you'd be missed  - you're part of this growing gorgeous gregarious gardening gang

Dove- I think some of the 'imbibers' from last night would have difficulty saying that today...

I agree, this forum has gone from strength to strength and members are a perfect mix of specialist, expert, experienced, 'weekend' and beginner gardeners.  It's that last word starting in 'g' which is the important one and a general sense of our love of gardening is what comes through on the forum, above all else.

Morning all.  (bleary eyes)

This is the first place Iook when I come on line.  Always some interesting, amusing or helpful titbit, answers to my Qs, opportunty to show off the little knowledge I do have and feeling amongst friends.

I've also been in forums (fora?), Peanuts, where people have been unpleasant to each other.  Life is too short.

Tea.   I need tea.
