HELLO FORKERS! November Edition

Posted: 15/11/2016 at 20:29

Spouse here has eaten and is asleep on the sofa watching Lucy Worsley.

Day has been filled with rather dull stuff, committee meeting, supermarket, ironing.

When we first moved to France our house was a converted water mill. We had water voles in the banks of the stream and a pair of muskrats who lived under the house. The stream ran under the house with a mill pool by the kitchen terrace. But I don't think we had ragondin. I wouldn't have liked to eat any of them, they were cute.

Morning all.
Strictly speaking "got" is not good grammar and is usually unnecessary. I have blue eyes - no need for "got". I became old.  Not sure about I got out of bed! It's "have got" that shouldn't really be used, but in the last 50 years has become part of the English language.

Anyway, I hope you find a solution DD!

You may notice I rather like moss!

Autumn is really underway now but I have pansies and violas planted for the spring.

Any ideas what to do with this patch?

It's probably too late now, Philip, this thread dates from July.

I have had dogs and daffodils. My dogs have lived long and not touched the daffodils.

It's so cloudy here I don't think we'll see the supermoon. Bit chilly too, was only 7° this afternoon while I was gardening.

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

My dahlias are in the ground too, apart from 20 that I grew from seed and planted in 2 troughs. I dug them up today, now drying off upside down. They had developed good tubers. I've added more compost to the troughs and planted bellis daisies for the spring. I've emptied 2 more troughs of bedding begonias but can't plant the pansies yet because I've run out of potting compost.

Glad the site's back.

Not a good start to the day, Joyce, but hope the problem is solved now and it doesn't happen again.

I've actually managed to get out into the garden today, dug up the dahlias and begonias in troughs and re-planted - but couldn't finish because I ran out of potting compost. OH has swept up 6 big barrow loads of leaves from the kitchen terrace.

Using a SatNav is nothing to be ashamed of, Lesley, I often use one, very good in towns.

I hope, since we had before pictures, that we'll get after pictures from Obelixx, minus stripes!

Pat, we are often in bed at 8am and don't feel guilty.

We have just enjoyed a programme set in the war in Ireland. "My Mother and Other Strangers."
