HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. What's the matter with the forum? Looks OK - for the moment!

I'm going to plant the rest of the plants I bought in the UK. I have gaps where the tulip were. Had annuals in the cold frames for the gaps, didn't plant them before we went to the UK as I knew the house sitter wouldn't water the flower beds, but he forgot to water the colds frames so they are all dead anyway.

I hope you have a lovely anniversary, Liri. I would choose Simnel and my OH would choose raspberry and cream. I think r & c would probably be most popular, may need plastic plates, forks and napkins!

Looked at latest cat thread. CN is nuts, doesn't sound a very happy sort of person. Don't let it bother you Topbird, not worth it.

Cats

I like animals, I have a cat, a dog and horses. My garden was turning into a wild life park so OH fenced the veg bit and the main flower bit to protect them from the deer. I have hares, stone martins, mice, voles, lots of birds, red squirrels, but am glad I don't have rabbits - they can do a lot of damage in a garden. I'm so lucky to have a big garden and to share it with so many creatures, but I can understand that if you live in a town with a small garden and have to share it with the neighbours' cats it must get very frustrating.

Went to GC. Bought a new big square plant pot for the "Lady of Shallot" rose I bought in Suffolk. Not as pretty as the lead look one I bought in Suffolk but clematis "Betty Corning" has gone in that one.

I've found traps work best. But in the borders the tunnels are too deep for the traps.

Have deadheaded and weeded, 2 barrow loads full. Nice day, sunny, low 20s, did 3 loads of sheet and towel washing.

Raspberries

Wintersong, did the dentist ask him to take the denture out so soon? If it's left out the gap could close a bit and the denture could be too tight. I'm not an expert though, son is a dentist.
