Does anyone talk to their plants?

He's the slightly bigger Scottish sort! But he's learnt English since he was a puppy.

Yes, Fairygirl, satellite TV - until the Beeb decide to change satellites. Which they've recently done and lots of Brits in Southern Spain have lost their English TV. There should be a European agreement. I pay the French licence, but don't watch much French TV as OH doesn't speak French well enough. He moved here at retirement, but I was younger so I do speak French.

I did like seeing them donutsmrs, and everyone's else's lovely photos. There's something so pure and clear about the colours of spring flowers.

I talk to my plants, but I also talk to the oven and the food while cooking and other things. I thought it had something to do with being on my own after my OH no.1 died 15 years ago. I met OH No.2 a few years ago and he remarked that I talk to myself, I said it wasn't to myself, it was to things and plants. It's a relief to know that some of you do it too and I'm not nuts!

artjak, I speak to my plants and my animals in English. They are French, but they understand. Well, dog is a Border Collie so not originally French, just born here!

Who ate the lupins???

If it's deer that would explain why I never have any lupins! But now part of the garden is fenced perhaps I should try again.

Punkdoc must have meant me, about being told that CB is easy on the eye! I find him very attractive, and I've said so several times

We rarely see JAS on the TV any more. Liked him, fun.

Lovely day, more weeding and splitting up of snowdrops. But soil is heavy and wet still, even after all the years of compost and manure I've added to it. Some bits aren't so bad. Found old mole tunnels, some years moles have been a real pest in the flowerbeds.

Well over a year ago I started a thread about why we started gardening, so if anyone wants a look it's here, but some of the members of the forum have changed since then. David K is still here!

Morning all. Another lovely day. More weeding.

May sow some more seeds. My baby petunias seem to be damping off. Lobelias have stayed the same size, tiny, for 3 weeks. But Gazanias and Busy-Lizzies doing well. Poor germination from the rudbeckias that I collected the seeds from, but masses of Nicotiana.

Well, on reading through this again, the poor old BeeB has no chance of getting it right! We are all different and we all have different ideas.

Must admit I do like Nikki Chapman, especially on Escape to the Country, she's so smiley, nice looking, but not smart and sophisticated. She also likes horses and so do I, not that that has anything to do with gardening (apart from manure!).
