HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 28/09/2015 at 09:58

Morning all. The moon here was huge, lit our way home from the concert last night, 1 hour drive. The sky was clear.

Men are here emptying the septic tanks. There is one each side of the house. Bit smelly outside!

I've been to all those gardens you mention, Chicky, except for Sarah Raven. They are lovely. I love the planting at Merriments and the setting of Pashley Manor - with tea on the terrace!

Back from Harvest Festival, birthday party (fun, treasure hunt) and OH's concert. Watched Downton, but recorded it as OH had fallen asleep on the sofa.

Morning all. Welcome back, Dove, glad you had a lovely holiday. We went to Norfolk for a week after Sicily, wondered about ringing you, then thought "of course, she's in Cornwall".

So glad you've found a new home for Shadow, DD. Is it in France?

Lovely wedding yesterday and the weather was lovely too. It was in the grounds and converted barn of a chateau. There was barn dancing, which I love, but the dancing started rather late so we couldn't stay for it all, had a couple of dances though.

Busy day today, Harvest Festival, friend's 60th birthday lunch then OH is singing in a concert.

It's my birthday

Gosh, thought I'd missed Nut's birthday, now I've got 'til Tuesday!

What to do with this broccoli?

Must be a different variety from mine. I sow in spring, transplant in June. It grows all summer, not making shoots or flowers, then it shoots in early spring, lots, and I eat it in early spring until it goes to flower when the weather gets warm.

Morning all. Haven't been here since I came back from daughter's, been so busy. But I did meet DD at an Open Gardens meeting. She's already said that, I started reading back, but there was so much I stopped and came here to post instead.

I hope Dove is having a lovely holiday.

We are going to a wedding this afternoon. Tomorrow it's Harvest Festival then friend's birthday lunch then OH is singing with his choir in a concert. May not get time to come here tomorrow.

Garden is a mess, but hopefully, rain permitting, will get a chance to clear it up in autumn.

That's right, as Steve says. The new pet will also be a loved pet, a new personality and friend in it's own right, not a replacement.

Morning all. Drizzling and grey.

Am going to look after daughter 2's two children after school, she's going to a teacher's meeting and husband is up north with work. They moved to 1h15 away in July. They were in the north of France, 8 hours drive away. Her OH's firm is re-locating him.

I'm so sorry about your cat, Hogweed. I've lost 2 cats in the last 10 years and my dog has cancer and will be 13 in December. Animals are good friends.

I'm so sorry DD and Verdun. Sometimes life can be so sad. When I came back from holiday I was reading back and laughing, now I feel more like crying. That young man's family - how awful for them, but I hope a home can be found for Shadow. But even if it can DD will still be sad without him. What rotten things to happen.
