HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all.

I liked videos too, so easy to use. We have a hard disc thing that records hours and hours of programmes but it's so complicated and if you put it on "pause" it only stays there a couple of minutes then stops so you have to start from the beginning and the fast forward isn't very fast. Have a DVD player in the bedroom but it only does 2 hours at a time.

Lovely day today. Going to veggie garden this morning.

Good morning Marion. We have sunshine too - at last. I'll be busy in the veggie garden today. OH is going to finish rotovating it.

You are amazing having an Open Day. Hope for me yet! I'm 63 and having my first charity Open Day on 17th May for children with cancer in the new French Open Gardens Scheme.

I hope you have a lovely day on Saturday.

Feeding roses

If I haven't got around to the manure in autumn then I sprinkle the rose food around before adding manure. I have 2 beds with bark and I just chuck the fertiliser on, it would take ages to move the bark away from each shrub and plant. Then I hope the rain will wash it in.

Was lovely and sunny today so when lunch guests left I went and edged the end bed, but needed widening as OH has trouble getting the tractor mower round the corner. So took up a couple of feet of lawn. Soil was horrible pale clay. Dug in barrow load of manure and a sack of compost. Then had to move the Tiarellas as they were no longer edging the corner of the bed. Now I have a nice gap for another plant, probably a Geum Borisii which is in the cold frame.

My lunch party went well, there were 14 of us in the end so I was glad OH brought in a garden table. Dining room one can seat 10. Slow cooked lamb was very tender. I didn't need to do a pud as 3 guests brought lemon tart, trifle and chocolate mousse  

When everyone left I was able to get outside and do a bit of weeding and edging.

Morning all. Thank you Lesley.

OL, tea before bed is definitely a sign of youth. When you are older it will make you get up in the night for the loo so you try to avoid it!

Happy Easter everyone.
