Hello Forkers.....It's October!

Posted: 24/10/2017 at 10:10

Just received the annual mouth and foot painters cards and brochure. I usually send them something, thinking it's a charity. OH has looked them up, it's a scam run by business people in Lichtenstein, which is a tax haven. Very little, maybe 3%, actually goes to handicapped people. It's gone in the bin.

Morning all.


The walled garden was a bit slow, but beautiful. However more veggie garden and apples than billowing flowerbeds of perennials, which is what I like. Not much commentary.


Not a new pony, LP, she's my daughter's mare, hasn't been ridden for years. 15.2hh, Arab x Lusitano, bit flighty. Daughter of my old mare and a friend's Arab stallion.


Hoping to plant up some pots today, weather looks promising.

Dove, tell us what your exercises are and we could do them with you! Probably be good for us. I hope they improve your knees.

Lovely, Chicky, with the autumn colours just starting. Look forward to the others.


Where is everyone tonight? I've been watching a programme about a year in the life of a garden.

Just been to an equestrian centre to see if they will take daughter 2's mare, who I'm looking after but not riding, for some training. Daughter has moved back down here from the north of France where she was sent, she's a teacher, not much choice in the matter for junior teachers. Now she has children I'm worried about her getting on a mare who hasn't been ridden for a few years. The trainer will take her this week. It's half term so daughter can help me get her into the trailer, that will probably be fun and games!

Are you two good at talking to each other? I think you need to discuss the situation calmly and tell each other how you feel, each taking time to listen to the other. I think she would probably be quite happy with you being a quiet patient at home, much better than you rushing off to foreign dangerous places with Médecins sans Frontières. But don't get impatient or shout, being a patient is probably terribly frustrating for you. Show her you care for her and how she feels, most women are quite happy to find their man isn't as macho as they thought and has feelings. But I don't know how you are together so maybe none of that applies.

Epimediums and some of the hardy geraniums, such as geranium macrorrhizum, are good in dry shade.


I've given up riding too, getting arthritic, but I've kept my old mare and given my younger one, but not that young, 18, to my daughter. I also have a 26yr old rescue horse. I spend longer on my garden now.


Did I see somewhere that you are in Norfolk? OH has a cottage in Norfolk, mine is in France, we go to Norfolk quite often.
