HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 04/08/2014 at 21:12

Evening all. No beer for me thanks. Put on 3lbs in 6 days in Yorkshire, drank a lot of Theakstons. No cream or cake either, had salad for lunch and salad for supper.  

Talking of funerals, as you were, in France they like them to be within 3 days, have to ask permission for 5 days.

Glad you enjoyed the carfest OL.

Forgot to tell you. Saw a beautiful yellow and green grass snake yesterday, sunning itself on the terrace. It was afraid of me. Good thing as I was afraid of it! Dove's Hissing Sid reminded me.

Pernission to speak SIR!

I've just read this, I remember a lot of it, thanks for the memories. I was on holiday and missed it.

Beaus Mum, I was in Yorkshire. But we go to the UK 3 or 4 times a year, for a holiday and for visiting friends and relations.

I hope Yviestevie's arm is feeling better.

Morning all. Sun, cloud, not too hot - yet. So must get into the garden.

Up late. Saw from last post that I didn't go to bed until 1am, which is 2am here. We saw Romeo and Juliet in a garden in Domme overlooking the river Dordogne. It was lovely, but 1hr 20m from here.

My aphids must have been drowned in the winter rain, hardly have any this year - at least no greenfly. There were some on the broad beans, but they went when I picked the tops off.

Holker Hall looks lovely, Zoomer. Huge house and gardens, rare plants. But not for me  - yet. It's in Cumbria. So far from France. Wonder if Ryanair goes anywhere near? We were thinking of East Anglia next year.

I also love the planning and dreaming about next year. I look at bare earth and see flowers! You're right about bed though. Goodnight.

No, only photos and I haven't read the books. I once saw a lovely TV programme about growing daffodils in Cornwall.

Is that the Minack Theatre? We stayed much more in the East when we went to Cornwall.
