Pennies sorry if i have offended you. I have a rather infantile sense of humour. Now to Cannas. My favourites are Durban [ dark and stripy sometimes sold as Phasion ] look wonderful with sun behind them. Also love Pretoria and General Eisenhour.
BL love your description of January. Red wine then whisky for me followed by day in bed.
I feel some seed ordering coming on.
Goodness me!!!! Was it as far back as that FG? Just put my thinking cap on and it had to be done late 1990's. I'm always lagging behind. I should add that the bathroom is decorated, well emulsioned/painted, regularly. Just needs a little facelift - like me.
Will let you know if my ruse works Panda.
Don't think anything you said could have offended anyone Punkdoc
Posts from Pennies were rather enigmatic - not sure what it was all about, but given that it was only polite to respond to a newcomer I think we did well in the circumstances - it's hard to know what to reply to vaguely religious references
Pennies is busy talking to her/himself on other thread.
Panda, so sorry. Forgot to wish you a speedy recovery. It's all these viruses you know.
Puncdoc, you certainly were offensive until you mentioned Cannas. Bought two earlier in the year and slowly they died. Have one 'leaf' left. Will stick to what I know next year.
Hooray - my bulb order has arrived - hopefully will be planting tomorrow - alliums (white) various tulips, pots are waiting, and some large flower head daffs for the family border, Remembrance of my old dad.
Have just re-boiled a batch of pear and vanilla jam as it was more like a sauce - seems thicker now, if it doesn't set it'll be for icecream/yoghurt treats
Frustrating when you forget to say something and can't go back to first post
Panda hope you soon begin to feel better.
Tina- think you meant to say 'you weren't offensive' to punkdoc!!!
Yes - hope you're feeling better soon Panda. It's all that bamboo you're eating...
I've spoken to Pennies on the other thread and told her about this one....
It seems we will need to watch out for more than just spam adverts and kitchems fron now on I shall always be a bit of a .
Dove, I am leaving my runners in a bit longer yet to get enough seed for next year, and this year I started my broads in small pots in the GH, and it gave them a flying start in February, my best crop ever..
I can't picture you as a little Woody...more of an
Punk you didn't offend that's my job. I did get a bit cross as I went to dear friends funeral on Tues and this is first time I've felt like joing in & we got that stuff.
Panda, soz to hear you're poorly, get well soon...I could do with a spell in bed, bought Rod Stewarts biography and would enjoy reading it but I keep falling to sleep at night.
Tina good luck with ruse, I can be there to help in about 5 hrs if traffic good. Cannas!! wot you like talking about plants & trees ? I noted earlier Eucalypus post.
Matty, jam sounds good, just got apple sauce reducing, first of season, all the wind delivered lots of windfalls.
Hope no one in my family gets a bean allergy as they have a lot to eat. No one wanted them fresh but all happy to have now sorted & frozen
Hello to Chicky when she appears. Hope family dog has been for a recent visit.
Off to sort out a pasta bake for later.
is much more fun , and we have the best music too.
WW. Yes, and it's warm. No worries about heating bills.
It's up to you Kef. I will be in bed when you get here, so will leave everything out in readiness. Bet you were shocked to see me posting about a gardening subject but, the point was, everyone else was wrong! Hope no-one reads this). Think I would fall asleep reading Rod Stewart's biography too.
"and it's warm. No worries about heating bills."
Good idea - this is the plan - all OAPs to be as in order to avoid heating bills in the afterlife
Will save the Government the cold weather payments so we get a tax cut too
Less of the OAP's Dove, after all, we are all only 27
Not quite what the thread title indicates dove? I'am certainly not from the parts of East Anglia as such, so not as you put it, this seems a thread for those in one clique, you may mock but thy will all surrender your sins in time ?
tina I'am a female as The Lord made me so, you I ask?
Pennies from heaven and Dove's from above = we come from the same place! A joke!
Oh dear - sorry you didn't get it. No one's mocking you Pennie but why the religious references on a gardening messageboard please?
This is a friendly place but you've been talking about the sinful and punishment
That's not friendly and not sure what you expect anyone to think.
People have gone out their way to welcome you, help you to find the new Chat thread and to involve you - what's not to your liking?
Woody, I'm poor and don't pay tax, so I quite like the heating allowance. Means I can have it on 24 hours a day when it gets really cold. Hope everyone is going Ahhh. and feeling suitably sorry for me. All donations gratefully accepted. I will post my bank details later.
Pennies, it's not cliquey on here, everyone is relaxed and friendly and enjoys a joke - mostly. A bit of banter goes a long way towards cheering people up and there will be people on here who's only contact with others will be through the discussions they have on here. We try and keep it that way
