Morning everyone, a bit blustery and overcast here but dry so far. I need to do things in the GH today so don't mind a bit of rain.....it might encourage me to get some bits done indoors too!!
Dove, so sorry about your friend, as you said she will be free from pain now, that doesn't make your pain any easier though. ((Hugs)).
MrsGarden, it was a privet bush, we took most of them down a couple of years ago but couldn't shift that so I out up with it, until the end of last summer when I decided it was going.....to sentiment where privet is concerned!! We have tried everything and eventually it came out!
Hugs to all those with naff jobs and working today, it will soon be long weekend
Dave - really sorry to hear about your friend. But as you say she's in the best place now and no doubt will be keeping an eye on you all!
Mrs G - sorry about that! The weather report said fine all day (heavy rain on Sunday). Now I'm just in the office by Rother Valley trying to mentally convince the clouds to go South and miss the washing! I can't remember if I opened the greenhouse or not either Two of my tomato plants were looking a little less than peppy yesterday so I'm hoping they'll be okay. I watered them well but the leafs seemed wilted. Surely they don't need a feed already?
KEF - ha has auto correct on my phone isn't a fan of cakes it seems! Grandma always makes the hot cross buns so this is my contribution to the party.
I'll put a photo up of the toms some time over the weekend - they've grown massively - way bigger than others I planted just a few days later but the leafs were all wilted like I'd abandoned them to dry out. Could they be getting too hot in the conservatory? I was sure I read about not feeding them til they flower and generally treating them keen but I'm not sure they look like they'll last much longer!
Mrs G - you're more than welcome to the join in the party. Be warned with this family to expect arguing, fussing, tantrums over the tiniest of things, the dogs getting higher priority on the sofa than grandfather... my family positively sit in a darkened room eating nothing but bread and water in comparison!
Thanks Verdun - she was so young and full of energy- only retired a couple of years - and she had so many things she wanted to do - she was 3/4 of the way through writing a book on plums (she lived in Pershore). Her much loved OH and family will miss her dreadfully.
Just in and catching up. You're so right Verd- life can be very random and hard to understand sometimes. My sympathies to you Dove. 'Peacefully' is the word to remember when the going gets tough, as it undoubtedly will. Plenty of hugs for you whenever you need them x
'Made' at aldi my hot cross buns! But did do some baking this afternoon, at son's insistence, from a packet mix (threw all flour away last month as I never use it)
No gardening today but plans for tomorrow are tp just put things in the ground even though I can't visualise where they should be, I'll move them later
Bought 2 small obelisks from aldi (£10), not the best quality but look pretty not sure what they will support as too narrow for poppies and paeonies, too low for those tall white daisy things (leuco something). I'll find something
