Hello Forkers - May Edition

Posted: 21/05/2017 at 23:16

Obelixx, I bought Betty Corning in Paradise Park GC in Newhaven, East Sussex.

I hope you feel better soon, Liri.

I've been busy in the garden today, planted out some plants I bought in England and prepared more pots for planting, weeded. Loads more to do.

My Queen of Night tulips are long over, but my cornflowers aren't even in bud yet! Pretty. I must hurry up and do one.

Is the germination of Zinnia seeds temperature critical?

Mine germinated at less than that, back in March on a window sill.

It looks a bit like my "Betty Corning", which I love as it's scented.

My grandchildren think I'm bonkers already. The older ones imitate me with shrieks of mirth.

Just what I was going to say - amazing photo, Pat! Reminds me of a volcano.

Morning all. Church, then gardening all day. It's sunny, should stay like that, hopefully.

Morning all.

I was thinking of summer holiday babies and memories came back of summer '76 when my daughter was a baby. She was born in March that year. I bought a rectangular paddling pool so we could lie in it together when it was very hot.

I hope Joyce went back to sleep.

The sun is shining, we've had rain the last three days when I was trying to garden. I got rather wet and left my gardening gloves in the wheelbarrow, so they were lying in a pool. But I have other pairs, just not so comfy.

What a lovely thread this is, thanks Runnybeak for finding it for me (I was looking at your posts). I will have to find a jam jar and some flowers.

Crikey, I've missed out a whole episode of Rezzers! What with being away and coming back to an overgrown garden I haven't had time to keep up so I've only carried on with Forkers as it was the chat thread I posted on originally.

Thank you to Runnybeak who popped in to Forkers to congratulate me on my new grandson. He's a week old now, born a few days early when I was still in England - the day I was going to the Malvern Show with friends. Another granddaughter is due next week! 5 hours drive away.

I like the Durrells.
