HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 17/09/2014 at 23:34

Thank you everyone for my birthday wishes yesterday, and on the birthday thread. Perhaps someone mistook BL for RB!

Spent a lot of the day today with son and baby grandson. Son bought me lots of tulips for my birthday. We went to the GC.

DD, people complain that there are harvest mites which bite when you walk on grass, called "aotats" here. They don't affect everyone, I think you have to be allergic to them.

Thank you Verdun, I have Salvia Amistad too, but it's nearer 4' than 7'. Wasn't sure what to do with it.

It's my birthday

What a lovely spot that garden is in, ighten. Some lovely gardens here, have been to the Helmsley walled garden and the Sussex Prairie Gardens.

When on holiday by Lake Garda last week we visited Sigurta Park which is huge and really more of a park than a garden. Loads of Busy Lizzies!

 

New nieghbours, new fence and eye-saws

I think jenny j's idea of a fence on your side with a trellis on it is good. Or a rustic pole trellis. Years ago, my husband made a rustic trellis, using chestnut posts, quite tall, like the one in the photo. You could put one on your side of the fence, should be allowed as it's quite open. Ours filled up quickly as we planted roses and clematis up it and made a bed in front with cottage garden plants such as perennial geraniums.

Thank you, Dove and Artjak.

Good luck with it Steve. I think it's a good thing that you want to involve the inmates, some of them were probably good gardeners when they were younger and will be able to advise. Good therapy for them too.

Look forward to seeing photos.

Lucky you lot, off visiting again. The only offputting thing is the loo! I'm posting here so I don't miss any pics you may send. Have a lovely time.

Morning all.

It's my birthday, so not doing anything much - at least no weeding! Being taken out to restaurant tonight.

DD, he was the man I visited in hospital the day I saw you. His wife, my friend, is being very brave, I expect she is still in a state of shock - although it was expected.

Still haven't caught up properly with the forum, will have a look today as I'm not going to do any weeding.
