Hello Crazyflower, is that your first post on the Forkers thread? Welcome. Glad I'm past the nappy rash era! 7th and 8th grandchildren due May and July.

Just a thought, does anyone know why the cursor always wants to default to the beginning of the text? Meaning that it takes ages sometimes to get the smileys to appear at the end of (or middle) instead of the beginning and of very annoyingly at times...posting pics results in the last one posted always being at the top.

I've tried all the obvious solutions.

That happens to me all the time, David.

Pond looks great, Dove.

We've been out all day at OH's choir's end of concert party. I made Coronation Chicken, which was all eaten. It was fun with a lot of singing after lunch.

Evening all. Busy weekend. OH is singing in 2 concerts with his choir. Yesterday I made sandwiches and cake for 35, the orchestra and soloists. Tomorrow is lunch party with the choir and their guests, the conductor, soloists and some of the orchestra have come from England. I'm making Coronation Chicken. Bedtime soon, I'm an hour ahead of you.

Broad beans are coming up!

Your beds are coming on really well Tracey.

I still have a lot of weeding to do, but tulips are coming out. Moss in the lawn, oh dear!

Wow, you have got a lot crammed in there Ecobaby, and it looks very healthy. I should be able to grow peppers in France, but they are never very good. Probably don't water them enough.

I'm jealous too, puncdoc. Can't grow meconopsis with limestone and summer heat here. Admired them at Forde Abbey on holiday.

I love looking at photos of people's gardens. SweetPea has some lovely cheerful pots. Hope Tracey finds the charger, want to see how her new beds are getting on. Looking forward to Dove's pond when it's planted. Berghill has a wonderful garden, looks bigger than mine.

Thank you for liking my garden Sweet Pea. I usually like it, but not today. I was digging rampant periwinkle out that was taking over the bed and it was growing under an Albertine rose which is very very prickly. When Albertine is out it is a pretty peachy pink and smells wonderful but it isn't very friendly!

Begonias keep warm in the GH.

Busy day. Rode horsey this morning, gardened this afternoon. Swept out garage, had been keeping hay in it, now the cars can go back. In between things like putting out the washing, making lunch etc.
