HELLO FORKERS! July Edition

Posted: 30/07/2016 at 08:54

Morning all.


There were fireworks in the village last night so old Tigger was terrified as usual and decided he'd sleep in his old bedroom, the entrance hall. Recently, since the weather warmed up he has preferred to sleep in the stable, as his back legs have got very wobbly and he doesn't like the tiled floor. The stable has non slip rubber mats. So I put a bed in the stable. Another reason is he likes to go to the loo in the night now he's old. He's a Border Collie.


Anyway, I heard him yelp early this morning and came down to find the most frightful mess. He'd been incontinent and slipped on the tiles (I've put bits of carpet down to help him) and got stuck in the passageway on his tummy with his legs out sideways. It took nearly an hour to get him outside (put a towel under his tummy to pull him up) and clean up the mess. He's still fast asleep but I need to give him a bath. Then I'll need a bath.


We are going to a friend's birthday lunch party, hope we aren't late.

Thank you Joyce.
And thank you, Chicky. Everytime I have been in England I've searched for the seeds. Found 1 packet, Isotoma, sowed them, 8 came up but then they turned into deep blue Lobelia! Strange because they weren't the same as the other Lobelia that I sowed! I had a plant a couple of years ago that I bought in a pot when we went by car instead of plane and it did brilliantly, so I've wanted them ever since.

Muddle-up, your painted cupboard looks great.


I don't think I dare take a photo of my utility room.

Hello and welcome BloodRose. I would count that as a garden. The rose bud looks lovely with water on it. I wish it would rain here.

I wish they sold Laurentias, or even the seeds, in France.

I grew these dahlias from seed



It's a real treat to see so many photos of Verdun's lovely garden. Once upon a time he rarely posted photos.

Mine  


I still wonder where one of my best secateurs went, in some long grass somewhere I expect, or emptied into the heap.

Garden Rescue - TV Programme

But Garden Rescue isn't a tear jerker. The really sentimental and expensive one is Alan Titchmarsh's "Love Your Garden", over the top.
