Hello Forkers - April edition

Posted: 27/04/2017 at 09:08

Morning all.
Fed-up with the weather forecast. It didn't mention frost, said it would be cloudy with showers and the odd sunny period today. But it was -2° there was a frost, ice on the water butts and clear blue sky. The garden dahlias have all been frosted, they are the ones that survived -12° in the winter and stayed in the ground. There wasn't room in the cold frames for all the ones in pots so I left 3 dahlias outside the GH door to harden off. Wanted to plant them before we left but they have been frosted.

Thank you. The pale pink rose is Mme Alfred Carrière, but I'm not sure about the yellow climber. It has red buds and gets yellower as it gets older. I looked it up and the nearest I could find is Sutter's Gold, which is what I call it.

No chance of eating out side today, only 2° this morning, 5° by lunchtime, grey and windy. The odd shower.

I have a peculiar hobby and I expect I will be banned from this thread. I have put away the washing - ironed and crease free except down the front of OH's trousers. I would rather do the ironing than wear 5" heels.

Glad you aren't going to eat a tree MU.

I wanted to post some photos, but it’s not working and they won’t post. Can’t type either, using Word and copying and pasting.

 Lovely apple blossom. Mine is all over now, clematis and roses are coming up.

David Austin Roses, are they worth it?

I bought Lady of Shalott too, this is her first flowering last year. She is in a big pot between Lady Emma Hamilton (my favourite) and Summer Song. I went to David Austin's garden a couple of years ago and saw Lady S doing really well in a pot.

I hope your knee heals quickly, Logan.

Line of Duty has been really gripping and I enjoyed the first episode of the new series of The Durrells. Missed the middle episode of Decline and Fall but hope to watch it on Catch-up when we are in Norfolk next week.
