Morning all, and what a morning! Seems like all of yesterday's weather has blown away and left a nice crisp sunny day (here's hoping it stays that way!)
Am off for a spot of retail therapy today, may take in a GC after lunch as am feeling a bit better. Need to get some fresh air about me to skoot away the cobwebs.
Have a great day everyone.
Morning Panda glad you're feeling better ((hugs)) whatchagonnaget? (that's me feeling daft sorry)
Hello forkers. Just checking that the site is safe again and we can get back to light hearted banter, cake and even a bit of gardening.
Cold and wet in sheffield again. Was going to get the strimmer out for the yearly mow of the orchard. I call it a meadow but really it is mainly brambles and nettles. The wild life likes it though. The redwings and fieldfares should be here soon to eat the windfalls.
Enjoy whatever you are doing. I think I will be watching rugby if weekend stays wet.
Hi Panda, lucky you, hate to say it but it's , how can say politely, tiddling it down here!
Hello all. Wet and miserable in S.Yorks. Plan on moving a few more tender plants into GH. Plenty of leaves coming down & even my fuschia has taken on Autumnal hues.
Off to market for bird seed etc. and a trip to Mum's. Need to get her tomatoes out of the GH.
Peaceful afternoon planned and a few girlie things to do, going to our friends tonight, only a take away curry but it should be a laugh.
Apols to Verdun, thought you were missing yesterday, turns out I'd managed to block you, ..only took me 24hrs to realise why I couldn't see your posts.
Glad to hear that poorly people are getting better. Don't anyone overdo it today.
KEF- perhaps you were trigger happy yesterday pressing that button....
Hope you're fine today
Dove, am visiting The Cheap Shop (nr Tiptree) for some seasonal fabric (can't mention the C word!), a quick visit to the Jam factory (yummy) and then lunch at a GC and a slow browse If I come away empty handed I will be Very surprised!
Mrs G, I think it may rain later although there is just a cloud at the top of the page where they forcaste our weather No rain!
Fairy I'm good thanks.
Please can someone tell me what WUM means?
Oh chicky - you don't wanna know!!
Chicky, dont bother reading!!!!! Start from here instead !!!
Took dog for a walk this morning but had to turn back when he started 'skipping'. That is such an improvement on not being able to walk
Some tulips and alliums came yesterday, the plan was to plant them today, containers at the ready, but so damp and yuk out there I think maybe not.
Still I have some seedlings that need potting on and the begonias to wrap up so I won't be bored.
Also want to go blackberrying (nearly over) as daughter and partner are coming for dinner tomorrow and I thought I would make Foragers Coconut Crumble (apples, pears and blackberries) from various places in the area. (not the coconut though )
Now to attempt to catch up
I wondered what WUM meant too.
Matty, so glad dog is feeling better.
Still raining. Don't seem to have done anything except look at emails, and book RyanAir for flight to England in the Easter hols. More expensive than I thought.
i stopped redaing the silly WUM posts yesterday, then it all became very silly so have come on for a peak and found it;s back to normal,(cake, jobs, weather, people being kind to each other),So I posted.
Thanks chicky! Silly me - I should've got that one!! Rain on the brain I reckon,
but now the sun is shining here in Dorset and all is lovely again. It's really good
as a newcomer to this thread to read all the (mostly) happy and friendly posts.
Will visit again soon if I may?
Dampish day here, probably not going to do too much, been out and peeked at the seedlings and the temporary greenhouse...........cats discovered it last night so have pulled off a bit of the polythene, hopefully they fell in and realised that it's not to be walked on!
hi flowersforbees, we've not met but I have enjoyed reading your thread about growing wildflowers, I love growing stuff from seed and try to grow plants that all have some benefit for insects.
I'm not a regular poster on this thread........... generally can't think quick enough to keep up!
WUM get everwhere, I just ignore them. Looking forward to the dancing tonight
