HELLO FORKERS!

I like chocolate with marzipan or nuts. Also chocolate liquers and Mon Cheri

Welcome back Dove, glad you enjoyed seeing nut.

I have a pond too and the fish bred like mad at first then most died 2 winters ago, just like fidgetbones. But most of them must have been around 8 years old so elderley for fish. Saw 2 this year.

I can see you both too. But I often find that when you post something you don't get a response, people post what they would like to say and don't engage, like in a conversation. Tha's what happens in forums. But if you ask a question here then people often do respond.

what to cover a south facing wall with

I have a clematis called "Diana" which is doing well on a south wall. It is growing with a grapevine.

 There are loads of clematis on this site, so you should be able to find one you like.

Annuals for partial and complete shade

I was going to say Fuschia, Busy-Lizzies and lobelia as well, also begonias, especially bedding begonias, if you don't mind them being on the short side.

I had some Fritillaria Imperialis once, magnificent. They were in well drained soil in full sun, which they are supposed to like, then after 2 or 3 years they just disappeared. ? slugs ? lily beetle. Lily beetle always get my madonna lilies, although I pick then and their horrid babies off regularly.

Hello punkdoc, so glad you're still here.

Love Trilliums, good luck with them. Not something I dare grow with dry, limestone soil. Never even seen them for sale here.

Haven't seen Dove for the last couple of days either. Hope she's OK. Perhaps she's busy with leaving work and starting retirement.

Thanks, KEF.

What's the weather like in your area?

Posted: 28/10/2013 at 11:01

Gloomy and wet in Dordogne. Bit windy earlier, but not now.

Grass

Posted: 28/10/2013 at 10:59

It is a problem isn't it? We mow the grass when it's a bit wet, but when it's long and wet we tend to wait a bit. I have a good lawn mower that can cope with long grass.
