HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all.

Farrier has been and trimmed horses' feet. Hannah was naughty and didn't want to be caught until I got a bucket of horse nuts - which was her cunning plan. I don't like doing that, it's like a reward, but farrier had other clients to go to.

Wish plumber would come back and re-attach the outside tap, pots need watering. Said he'd come first thing and it's after 10.30am.

It's my birthday

Happy birthday Yvie, is it on 27th or 28th?

One good thing about the leak - I've sold my old cooker to the plumber's son! I was going to clean it and advertise it, but he's taken it away dirty so I gave him a discount.

Finished planting all my pots and troughs. Have quite a few seed grown tatty looking petunias left over. They should have been potted on again, but now I don't need them anyway.

Womble, garden is coming on beautifully.

Lily, my favourite sort of ice cream  that they don't sell in Dordogne

Anyone done any gardening today?

Planted the pots, including some herbs, on the kitchen terrace. That's all the pots done now. Have quite a lot of rather tatty looking petunias left over.

Housework this morning, planting pots on kitchen terrace this afternoon and talking to the plumbers in between. They've nearly finished. Coming back to re-connect an outside tap tomorrow. Was going to do some watering on the flower garden side but it's that tap. Also used for filling horses' water so very important.

Re my post yesterday "2 men came to read the water meter and they said I will have a big bill as there is a leak. Can't find it, must be under the concrete floor in the corridor to the boiler room where the water comes in to the house. Plumber coming tomorrow."

Plumber has come, confirmed leak. Going to put in above ground poly wotsit pipe and cut off old copper underground pipe.

Well done Womble!

I've been planting annuals among the perennials in the middle bed. Also planted around the sundial and nipped all the tops off the broad beans as the blackfly are starting.

Morning all.

I'm sure it will be fine DD. When one plant has peaked another comes out. So much has come out since my Open Day I'm wondering if it was too soon. Lots of big red poppies now and the Sweet Williams and hardy geraniums are all coming out.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Planted up 4 more troughs and 3 pots, begonia "Dragon's Wing", Lobelia, Petunias, Nemesia.

Glad about your Mum, Lesley. Somehow I missed that.

Katherine, do you mean real live ducks? What sort? I used to keep ducks, great characters, but don't let them near your veg garden!
