HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. Going to see my horse that I lent to a 16 year old girl today.

DD, if the party is on Saturday it won't be the holidays, back to school tomorrow.

No cake. Bakewell tart, lemon meringue pie, Eton mess, plum tart, and a big bowl of crème caramel. Raised nearly 300€ after expenses.

ID anyone - please.

I think it is Vitex Agnus Castus. I have one. Prune it like a buddlea, hard in March. Likes warmth.

What a gorgeous view in Fairy's photo.

I seem to have missed a lot of fun chat this evening. BBQ went well. 31 came, had good helpers. They all ate 18 large marinaded chicken breasts (which I'd divided into 2 or 3 pieces), 48 sausages and 18 burgers, loads of salad, lots of cheese, 5 baguettes and 5 puds each of which was enough for 8 people (or so I thought)! I'd bought 3 x 3L of red, white and rosé, almost all drunk. Wonder who drove home!

Thank you Wonky. Have been trying to clean the place up! OH says "why, when it will be a mess again after the BBQ".

I agree with you, Liri, about intolerance.

Hello all. Been preparing for tomorrow's BBQ for Emmaus. Having 32 to lunch. It is a Christian thing, but non Christians support the Charity events I hold too as I have friends of all sorts of beliefs. I haven't met a horrid Christian yet.

Dove, I think I agree with Fairy about the bamboos!

Sorry about your car. Mine is repaired now, such a difference. Garage man said I was lucky the engine didn't fall out during my 5 hour drive. Yet I'd been to 2 different garages about the vibrations, the second one balanced the tyres. I thought the car was vibrating because of old age. When I said that to the first garage he said Oh it will last some while yet.

Honeysuckle - Grow It Thick And Bushy on Wires Only??

Bamboos will need quite big pots, they grow big roots. They will need regular watering. Some bamboos, when planted in the ground get very invasive and try to take over the garden! Different sorts of bamboo grow to different heights.

Could the honeysuckle grow up the wall of your house? You could attach wires to support it. Don't plant too close to the foot of a wall, the earth will be too dry.
