Gardener come.....

Posted: 08/02/2014 at 11:36

If I had been a doctor instead of a nurse I wouldn't have met my first husband (RIP) and had my 4 children and 6 grandchildren. My father wouldn't let me go to a school that wasn't Catholic so I couldn't do A levels as I would have had to go to a private boarding school which was too expensive and I didn't want to board anyway. I wanted to go to the local 6th form college. So no University, but I did get a diploma that the London hospitals accepted as an A level equivalent for nursing.

Why don't you just pin a picture of snowdrops on your coats?

Bookertoo, just wish that moles would stay in the paddock, not the garden. They make tunnels under the plants leaving the roots dangling in space and then they die of drought.

HELLO FORKERS!

Oh what fun, just found this, you lucky things. Have already seen the Hodsock thread. I met 4 forum people at different times last year on trips to England. Gardening people are nice

A few years ago I went to Walsingham Abbey in Norfolk which was lovely, loads of snowdrops.

Morning all, woke late, but have fed the horses in the mud, poor things. At least it's only shallow in the winter paddock, limestone rock underneath. 10 days heavy rain forecast here.

The photos on the previous page are horrendous, saw it on the news. A friend of mine lived in Dawlish before they moved to France, her daughter nearly bought one of those houses. So sad for Somerset too, all those animals being moved from the farms. I hope the farmers get compensation and help.
