HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 30/12/2014 at 17:00

Glad you like it Mrs. G. When we bought the house in 1990 it had been on the market for years and unlived in for 6 years. No one wanted it because of the isolation and the state of the house, but, once you get up the 1 km long drive (which was in a state in those days, better now) it's only 20 mins drive to the town. Hard work in the early years though, but I was younger then.

 My house is in a clearing in the forest beyond the field.

royal poinciana

Poincianas are flame trees that grow between 5 and 12 metres. They grow in tropical climates. Is that what you mean?

Need to replace what I think is box

Now that I've clicked on the photo and seen it closer up I agree with Blairs that it is not box. I think it's a euonymus. They can get damage from vine weevils but usually re-grow.

I'm lucky to have wild land as well as a formal garden. I trained my Border Collie not to wee or poo on the lawn in the garden area. Take him to a wild bit or out for a work and when he performs give lots of praise. Teach him the word "No" as soon as possible.

I agree with Dove, but leaning more towards the crab apple. Blossom in spring, fruits in autumn, right size for a front garden, variety of colours.

Morning all.
No particular plan for today. Could do more ironing sitting in front of telly, could hoover sitting room floor.

-3° this morning, but no frost, cold and grey. But warmer than yesterday when it was -8° with a frost.

Don't let a certain person upset you KEF. Not worth it. Have another wine and enjoy your family gathering.
