HELLO FORKERS!

Elderly brain moment! I'd just been reading back and, as usual, there was more than the brain could cope with!

Morning all. Just got back from a few days in England. It was OH's auntie's Memorial Service. She was 97.

I hope Mr Fidget is OK and that Panda has a good first day in her new job.

Need help identify some plants

3 I think is a sort of Silene which some people think is a weed but others like it and grow it, it's quite pretty so the choice is yours.

6  is a Choisya Ternata.

I think I agree with Hostafan, but the photos are a bit small.

Don't let yourself be stressed DD. I'm sure she'll be delighted you are looking after the garden. I expect she will be a help and won't expect perfection. I don't like other people's houses and garden to be perfect, makes me feel inadequate!

We are off to the UK, Ryanair, at lunchtime.

I went to a Garden Club meeting last night, there was an interesting talk about snowdrops. There are over 1500 varieties and some are very rare and expensive, collectors go mad for them! Then there was a quiz. I came tie first and will be getting Galanthus "Grumpy" as a prize, when it's the right time of year to pot it up. 

Lovely red leaves

Be careful if you plant Virginia Creeper, it can be really rampant, almost a pest. Can't get rid of mine.

Have finished the plug plants at last. It's warm and windy today.

Good luck Hosta.

Are the markets good value near Norwich Dove? Sounds a good haul. Here they are more expensive than the supermarket.

Thank you, Lesley.

I've just changed to winter bedding this morning, DD. We had the summer duvet and mattress side, but in real summer it's just a sheet.

Morning all. Good luck with the scan Hosta.

I will be in the GH potting on plug plants this morning.

We are off to England tomorrow for a few days for OH's auntie's Memorial Service. She was 97. He looked on her as a Grandmother.
