I don't know about my flight yet, Ryan Air tend to let you know at the last minute, maybe tomorrow evening.

But most women seem to wear trousers or jeans today anyway, so how do we know the man version isn't just a man?

!!Surprise Surprise!!

I hope you aren't discouraged Jacqueline, but pictures of flowers are lovely and I look forward to seeing yours.

There are hares here, no rabbits around my house. It's limestone and the topsoil is very thin, no scope for burrows. But there are rabbits in the valley. One year I hadn't cut anything down in the long border and a female hare moved in. She had 4 babies, so cute, but they started to grow and they ate my campanulas so I had to chase them out, plenty of other space here for hares to live, but my garden isn't one of them!


Must go and dish up the chicken pie.

They are so pretty though and I always like to see wildlife. They are all around here but have never yet come into my garden. Maybe because the French hunt has made them too nervous of people.


I feel that Jacqueline has come on here wanting to share her excitement at seeing a beautiful pheasant so close up and we've thrown cold water over it. They are lovely birds even if they do eat people's plants.

Sounds daft and a waste of money about the green lady, or do I mean man. As Kitty says we are all human beans. Shouldn't discriminate against either and "vive la difference"!

SG Lily, I'm sorry you've felt ignored sometimes, I'm sure it wasn't meant. The trouble with forums is that sometimes people just want to say things and get them off their chests without really looking at others' posts. I've sometimes felt ignored, not just talking about this thread, but it's all part of posting on a forum. And sometimes people can't think of something to say so they just switch it off and look at another thread. And I've been guilty of that too. I always liked your posts and missed you when you didn't post so much. Generally I find this thread very friendly.

It was a mistake, Topbird. If you aren't well you should be resting or you will be slower to recover. Can't the garden wait a week? Now is the time to pamper yourself.

Afternoon all. I've been at a committee meeting.


Raining here, but at least the wind has stopped.


We were going to Norfolk on Thursday. Our house sitter sent an email this morning to say he is stuck in England until Saturday because his flight today has been cancelled because of the air traffic controllers' strike. We don't know if our flight will be cancelled too. Even if it isn't I need to find someone to feed the horses and my cat.
