HELLO FORKERS!

This site has gone so slow again it's almost impossible to get to the page.
Wish I'd learnt the violin, but probably would have been useless. Was useless at the piano.

Actually did some gardening this afternoon, weeded and cut down plants that had flowered and planted 1 trough with home grown wallflowers. That's 11 troughs planted now and 4 pots. Can't do the gazania ones yet as they are still looking pretty - at least when the sun comes out like today.

Kitchen smells lovely as OH is cooking pears in spiced red wine. Fish tonight with yet more runner beans.

Serious stuff......no! Really

Lovely to see you are still here tea drinker. Who spilt coffee over the keyboard? You? My OH split a glass of sparkling wine in his laptop the other day. Disaster! But it recovered enough for him to do a back up tht evening. It was dead in the morning.

Forum much quicker now.

Don't think Leclerc supermarket is going to do an autumn promotion. They were filling the shelves with masses of toys for C........  GC had cleared a huge space and were filling it with artificial trees and decorations. When we first came to France in 1985 we couldn't buy a real C. tree before mid December.

Dahlia "Pooh" has taken a long time to get going. Planted it spring 2012, only did about 2 flowers, but it survived the winter in the ground and this is it now.

 Delphiniums are doing a final, if a bit feeble, burst before winter, their 3rd flowering.

 Doctor Ruppel, the clematis I'd searched for after seeing LeadFarmer's one, had produced a last flower, it had already flowered. Bought it in Newhaven the day I met Bev, potty gardener, in the GC. So it will remind me of Bev.

Morning all, took me ages to get here. Site very slow and page kept coming up blank. Or is it my laptop?

Supermarket today. Need more potting compost, wish they'd hurry up and have their autumn promotion.

My old handbags are still in a cupboard. My clothes from when I was thinner are in the spare room wardrobe, you never know, might fit one day!

Can't keep nail varnish for more than a couple of days, always chip it.

My MIL was lovely, taught me to garden.

OH bought a new computer. Couldn't manage without it.

A mummy hare had 4 babies in my big herbaceous border a few years ago! And the deer ate all my roses. Is that what you mean, Jim? Oh, and a badger died in the lean-to, but from the look of it I think it was old age.
