Hello Forkers January 2017 Edition

Posted: 28/01/2017 at 19:44

Are they walks just in your area, Chicky, or are they all over the UK? Do you have the website address please? We have been looking for walks in Norfolk. I bought a couple of books of walks and we've started to try them, but I didn't feel up to it in January. But 9 1/2 miles is a bit far for us. We are 27 (or a little bit more!) so 4 - 5 miles is more our thing.

Well done Yvie, you must have been eating less too. That's the bit I find hard.
Have done dusting, now making marmalade.

I don't mind the moles and the deer being in the paddock and the wood, but I wish they would keep out of the flower garden and the lawn. Especially as I sometimes open it for charity.

Thank you, how kind you all are. I felt a bit daft posting them as there are such lovely things on this thread. I like gentle country scenes in watercolour done by skilled artists so wanted to have a go.

Lily P, I'm sorry about your plants in the GH. Maybe they aren't all lost and when the weather warms up new shoots may appear.

OK, Joyce  They aren't very recent, got discouraged because what I saw in my mind didn't come onto the paper!

If you don't kill it it will find a mate and have babies. I speak from bitter experience! They burrow under my plants and leave roots dangling in the tunnels. I use traps.

Wow! I haven't seen this thread before. What a lot of amazing talent! I once posted some watercolours on a thread like this, but they aren't good enough for this thread. So professional.

Hardy salvia?

I've lost Hotlips several  times in the cold winters of SW France, but Salvia Blauhugel and Caradonna have survived and are now several years old.

Happy birthday, Dove, I hope you are having a great day in London.
