HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 20/10/2013 at 16:07

Had good lunch with son, he BBQ'd the steak, his wife did 1st course, veg and apple tart. Sunny 23° in shade.

Do you ever still paint anything Dove, what sort of painting? Did you see that thread that Happy Marion did about painting what you've grown? http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/painting-what-youve-grown/82877.html  found it but haven't looked again yet. That "search this site" box at the top of the page with a magnifying glass is useful for finding things. I just type "painting" and it was one of the things that came up.

Lovely, Berghill.

Forum is being difficult for me too. Threads take ages to appear, makes me feel like not coming here.

I love Strictly. Ben has made so much progress, reminds me of my rugby playing son. You'll just have to watch the Xfactor then Pentillie!

Never got to do gardening today, too busy mucking out and clearing up the hay store. Going to lunch with 2nd son tomorrow, they are expecting my 7th grandchild next Spring!

Small Dahlia Tubers

It is worth keeping them, must have stems or shoots though. Just think, bedding dahlias are grown from seed so how small were they at the start of the year!

What tree is this?

That is hawthorn, not poisonous and Bob is right about the compost. Just in case you want a second opinion!

Wow, looks like a full time job! How do you find the time? Your garden must be huge, I know it's big because I've seen photos.

Serious stuff......no! Really

sg lily, what a coincidence! I lived in Reigate until I was 11, then we moved to Horley, where my sister still lives!

No one can even send me PMs unless they know to click on "forum posts" instead of the Avator. If you click on the Avator it's not me, it's a new person from Wyre Forest with no posts.

Been mucking out the horses' summer shelter. It's up a hill and the top of the stony paddock and I'm ashamed to say I had been a bit lax. The farmer had delivered big bales of hay into it for them to help themselves but where he leaves them sitting in the field before gathering them in goes mouldy so all that bit has to be chucked out, and droppings. Took me nearly 2 hours.
