Hello Forkers ... July Edition

Posted: 09/07/2017 at 20:48

Much Wenlock is a lovely village. We had a happy holiday in Shropshire 3 years ago.


Evening all.

The Open Day was a success, 57 people, not counting helpers, think that is the most we've had. Only 3 French but they were very nice and one couple had come from over an hour away. All the homemade cake went, just 3 slices of a bought one someone donated left. People were very complimentary. The day was cloudy, cooler at 24°, a couple of mild showers. Just right for me.
We've been out gathering up the signs on the road that OH had put out this morning at some un Godly hour when I was asleep.

Poldark tonight

Hello Dachalover.


Des that Spirea have golden leaves when it first comes out, then they get greener as it flowers? I have one like that, called "Goldflame".

Morning all.


What huge eyes Ed has!


Cooler and cloudy with a breeze. I shall make a cake or two, I have a chocolate cake, a fruit cake and something else in the freezer. One will be orange with grated courgette in it. Trouble is, you don't know how many people will turn up and now rain is forecast.


Also need to do some rose dead heading. Shan't dead head Paul's Scarlet because she has lovely orangey hips, but she's looking a bit untidy at the moment.


Hope DD has a good day.

Swat the blue bottle, but don't hang up a sticky tape that may kill a bee or a butterfly.

Lovely Roscoeas, Fidget. I've never seen them in France.

Then my next post was lost, couldn't display the page. But it put the writing first last time, strange!

These two are by the swimming pool, which is why they are in white plastic pots.

Some pots. I just cannot put the writing above or between the photos.


Oh bother it, it won't do any more photos either and the one photo it's managed is probably the worst.
