Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 27/04/2016 at 19:15

 My friend came to help, she did some of the long border.


Have been weeding the end bed. Here is a bit of it, the rest was too in the sun for a photo.

I expect they will b back to front, as usual.


What is your weather like?

It's been a lovely sunny day, at last.

I'm not upset, this thread is fun. In the beginning it was more about grammar and words that get on people's nerves, now it's more about the huge variety of expression in the English language. I was only confused because I'd read so many pages and it was a lot to take in.

I hope you've got places for them Hosta, especially after all that splitting and multiplying you did.

Come in for a cuppa.

Oh well, RB, people say I talk posh too. Does it really matter? So long as you can communicate with the people you care for.

But Weigelia instead of Weigela is a teeny bit irritating!  The Spellcheck says both are incorrect, but I don't think the Spellcheck knows much about plants. It certainly hasn't heard of wellies, but it knows about male anatomy.

I forgot about this thread, just read pages of it, but haven't reached the end yet. Feeling confused  Maybe I won't dare to speak any more!

Picked up the odd comment

Ahmond darn sarf

I hate it when people say noogah. It's nuggit. And what's a zeeebra?


It's noogah in English, nooget in American. I've never heard of nuggit.

I say ahmond, never heard the l pronounced until recently on TV. I was taught to say zeeebra when I was young, but have changed to zebra as it's more logical.

Someone said no one speaks like the Queen. I've been told several times that I speak like the Queen. But not sure whether it was a compliment or not!

Sweet Peas - seedlings

They sound hungry. Seed compost is low on fertiliser. Need potting on. Sweet peas are quite hardy, but they won't like 48°! Pot on then harden them off as soon as you can.

Morning all. Lovely sunny day.

Dog woke me at 6.30am, too early for me, so went back to sleep until 9.

Gardening today.

Didn't know there was a hyphen-less Busy Lizzie.

Forecast doesn't show rain. I will be gardening tomorrow, but may not have started by 11am. Friend is coming to help at 1.30pm.

Hi Dove, glad to hear you Ma is comfortable, best you can hope for. You sound extremely brave about the whole thing yet I am sure it must be a very emotional time for you all. Hugs to both you and WW.

Lizzie, I sent you a PM, a nice one, I promise. 


DD I haven't had a PM from you.

Hope Charlie is feeling better now. Have you had a nice evening together?
