HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 20/12/2013 at 11:38

I can't say anything about leaves, Stacey, have still loads to pick up. When I had time it rained and now I haven't time!

My bulbs aren't showing yet.

Another Carol Service tonight, followed by meal out in a restaurant with friends.

Then off early tomorrow to see children and grandchildren. Must do some ironing then pack and wrap pressies. See you next week. xx

Hope your dog recovers a bit each day Matty, until he's back to normal. Wow, well done on the weight loss.

Put the tree up in it's stand, bit of a fiddle as the GC had hacked bits off it's trunk, but that's all as nice day. Gardened and planted the rest of the tulips. Better late than never!

Hello Alan, good to have you back. The move seems like a nightmare, but it sounds as though you've survived it with good humour. Try to relax and recover a bit, leave the garden until the spring.

Talkback: Front gardens

This concreting and paving of front gardens is causing flood damage too, nowhere for the rain to drain to and the getter drains overflow. I'm sure it would help if people would leave at least some earth or green in their front gardens instead of filling the whole thing. Would look better too.

Morning all.

Beautiful cake, Stacey.

Must clean sitting room then put up Christmas tree. Bought it yesterday.

While in the GC also bought some more violas and a David Austin rose on special offer, 14.5€. One in a pot, William Shakespeare, deep crimson, very fragrant. In the French catalogue bare root ones are 18.95€ + postage. It will have to go on a pot on the terrace as flower garden is full and roses outside the fenced bit are eaten by deer.

Pretty viola Gardengirl. Your bulbs are well ahead of mine. Haven't seen mine yet!

Morning all.

Music does fire off the emotions. There were bits that my father used to hum loudly, I called them "Daddy's hums", they make me feel emotional when I hear them. Funny how even when children are grown up and middle aged they are still "children" to their parents.

We are going to see my "children" and 6 grandchildren this weekend. My son has rented gites in the farm next door to him south of Orleans.

Back from Carol Service. Abbey looked very pretty, choir sang beautifully. But quite a lot of mince pies over, perhaps they were on diets. Around 160 came, but some years it's nearer 200, so hard to know how many mince pies you need. We've run out before!
