Wisteria??

I have one that I am training to be a tree, but it's not big yet. The biggest one I have ever seen, but not a tree, is this one at Groombridge Place. On the right growing up a tree.

HELLO FORKERS!

I'll have to read back, I got to where Fidgetbones asked what Butternut I grow. I thinbk it was Harrier from T & M, they were small, but I think I prefer my last year's ones which where a bit bigger, Cobnut from Suttons. They usually ripen well here as we often have warm weather into September and October. But today has been cold and wet. Anyway they are all harvested now.

Well done, Bob. What an incredible difference. Thanks for showing us the photos.

Wow! What on earth will they do with it afterwards? I'm quite happy with my delish baby butternut squashes, about 1lb each.

It's a beautiful garden and I was very lucky to be able to see it as Lilylouise invited me when we went to England in June. Lilylouise and her OH are lovely too.

WW, I remember you talking about your wife before. It moved me.

My husband died 15 years ago, but I am lucky in that I have met another lovely man in the last 5 years. Never meant to, but it happened. They are very different.

Oh yum, Brumbull, couldn't we have a little nibble now to get the appetite going for dinner?

Thank you Verdun.

My garden really kept me going when my husband died, except the first year when it went to pot because I thought if he couldn't look at it it was pointless. But then I really got into it and each season, with new and different things growing, really gave me hope and made me look forward.

 

MORNING FORKERS

PM is private message, or personal message, star gaze lily. You can usually do it, like a private email, by clicking on someone's picture. But mine isn't working. If you hover the mouse on someone's picture you see their number of forum posts. If you click on mine it may go to my personal page where you send a message. Sometimes it just says Wyre Forest, which isn't me.
