Hello Forkers ... September edition

Posted: 07/09/2017 at 22:20

Good evening from Norfolk. Plane left an hour late, we stopped at Sainburys on the way and now we are full of salmon and asparagus and watching with horror the damage by the hurricane. We are so lucky living where we do.

Thank you Fairy and Joyce. We'll be flying, only 6 hours door to door. Don't need luggage, have all we need in the cottage.

I'm off to sunny Norfolk tomorrow, can't wait, no sunbathing, we'll go for walks, see friends, look round gardens, maybe go to the sea and walk on the beach, drink proper beer in pubs and see my sister who is coming to stay a couple of days, maybe see Dove and Topbird too.

What is it?

I agree and it's a weed.

They must have nicked it in the night, Punkdoc! You didn't hear a removal van?

Sun is coming out.

Bet it's pricey! How deep are your pockets, Hosta?

Rambling roses

Posted: 06/09/2017 at 09:59

Climbing roses are not self supporting, they have to be attached. It works when a rose grows through a tree with more open branches, such as an old apple tree, as the branches help to support it. I think you would have to tie it to the conifer at strategic points, but don't ask me how!

Morning all.
Lying in the sun drives me up the wall too! Each to his own.

We went to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park too, in July when we stayed with SIL and BIL. But I found the sculptures too modern and abstract for my taste. Michelangelo, Rodin and Degas are for me!

I hope your Dad's operation goes well, Chicky and that Chicklet's Australian adventure does too.

Hello Topbird, glad you are enjoying your holiday. Have missed you here. I went to Barbara Hepworth's garden years and years ago when I was 20 with a group of medical students, one of which was my boyfriend at the time. He was very keen on art. I wonder how it has changed. When I went to Cornwall again it was near Fowey on the other side, with my OH a few years ago.

Enjoyed Bake Off again.
