HELLO FORKERS April 2016 Edition

Thank you for thinking of me, Fairy . I've only been to Killin in summertime, but I remember your snowy photos. Visiting a brother in Scotland isn't very practical in winter! I don't go often anyway, it's so far, and now his son is in the spare room.

Probably a good thing not to hear a cuckoo. Your little birds' babies will be safer than mine. It's just that it makes it feel like spring.

Are you sure Monty wasn't feeling a bit wobbly because of his health? He hasn't been quite the same since his stroke. It is a recorded programme and would have been examined before going out.

Morning all. Sunny here. Hello P Pam.

We used to have swallows but they don't come any more. A wren and a redstart use their nests, but they've been falling off the wall, only one left, someone is relining it.

Has anyone heard the cuckoo? It's been around for about a week.

We are going to the after concert lunch today. I wanted a shower, but no hot water. We had a little power cut. When that happens the water heater turns itself off.

Plants for shaded area

Thought this looked familiar, photos and all, I answered about shade plants in Nathalie's bulb thread on the 30th, didn't notice this one.

It's rather elderly polycarbonate and dirt has got inside the air holes. There is some elderly bubble wrap hanging on the wall too. But it does help to shade a bit. It's raining as well. It can get very hot when the sun shines though. 2 roof windows and one door.

Well done nut!

I potted up loads of seedlings today, but haven't taken photos yet. Took photos of the plug plants I potted up a few days ago.

I had 6 in 2014, but only 2 made it through the winter, so I had 2 in 2015. They aren't showing any signs, but perhaps it's too early. I should have taken cuttings.
