HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. Hope it's just plotting Punkdoc! Welcome back, we were getting worried.

Grey, cold and drizzly here.

Thank you Lyn. When I last went it was one June, looks very different at this time of year.

roses

When I replaced a dead climbing rose (it had been decimated by deer over the years, now have a fence) I removed 2 wheelbarrow loads of earth and replaced it with earth from the veggie garden, compost and manure. New rose is doing OK.

I have read that you can plant a new rose in a large cardboard box with new soil and compost and then dig a hole and plant the box in the place.

Mycorrhizal fungi, bought from garden centres, spread over the roots, help.

It's my birthday

Have actually done some weeding in the veg garden and removed four barrows of dung from horse shelter, lots more to do for both.

7° is the hottest it's been today, bitter wind, cloudy now, washing not properly dry.

I put mine in a cold frame that OH gave me, wasn't expensive. It's on the kitchen terrace by the wall of the house.

Was -2° with a frost this morning. Only 5° now with a biting wind. This is Dordogne and it's only October!

I hate snow as I can't get up the drive. I prefer mild, wet days.

Morning all.

Congratulations and welcome back Wintersong.

How dare you Verdun! I heard that! Women drivers have fewer accidents than men.

But you won't be able to show it off, you'll have to wear February clothes!
