GWF Day Out: The Beth Chatto Gardens, Colchester: Sunday 10 Aug

Posted: 16/08/2014 at 10:17

We went to the Savill garden in April. It poured but they lent us 2 big umbrellas. We were the only people in the garden. I enjoyed it, but I'm probably a bit garden bonkers!

HELLO FORKERS!

No, OL, you didn't, you didn't say anything to offend me. I'm sure I'd like you in real life. I've met 6 people from forums now and liked all of them.

DD saw you were thinking of rotovators. I have a Honda, it's light and manageable and easy to start. I'm not usually good with pull cords. Not that cheap, but worth it. No, I don't work for them!

Morning all.

Thanks for the PM, Dove, expect you've found the reply.

Which garden are you visiting DD?

Thank you for saying I seem lovely OL, but "seem" ?!!

Have a lovely day at Great Comp, Scroggin. Wish I could come, I've never been there.

Bekkie, I always talk to myself in supermarkets. Seems a normal thing to do. I talk to food while cooking it and tell it off for burning or taking too long.

OL, I think the person concerned was only trying to be helpful, don't think he meant it to come over in that way. We are all different, ages, characters, walks of life that sometimes there are bound to be conflicts especially with the written word. He'd had a tough early life and has found happiness in retirement.

I've had a very quiet day, should have gardened, didn't, but it did rain some of the time.

How did you get into gardening?

Smokin Donkey didn't mean to cause offense. Please can we leave it there and tell each other about what he asked in the first place - how we started gardening.

I think violas and pansies are perfect for that. They come in lots of colours and you can buy plug plants from catalogues, not expensive. They will last until June. Also those pompom pink and white bedding daisies, primulas and coloured primroses.

Glad I have a tumble dryer with all the bedding and towels I'm washing after the family's visit. Makes the towels fluffy, nearly out of fabric softener as the family used most of my new bottle. Don't put our clothes in it though, not since it shrank a favourite top.

Fairygirl, I put my 2 loads of washing out this morning and it poured at lunchtime. I think there's a black cloud that lies in wait for people's washing!
