HELLO FORKERS! July Edition

Posted: 16/07/2016 at 21:30

Welcome back Steve. I looked up those gardens, they look fantastic and the restaurant sounds goo too!


I've weeded half of the upper middle bed this afternoon, had to wait for the sun to go behind a tree, it was hot and sunny.

I've only seen one so far, some others are recorded. Enjoyed it. Hard to believe Charlie is 50 already!  I always liked her, agree with Verdun.

Joyce, I didn't have violas with the bellis, but I had violas in other pots.

Lovely, RB.


My Lady of Shallot is starting her second flowering.


Whenever I post photos they come up in a different order and things I write to go with certain photos don't turn up in the right place! So, no more commentary!

Back from son's last night. OH told me about Nice, so very sad.


Things were hectic at son's yesterday, they were preparing to go on holiday but they are renovating their house and had a plumber in and were expecting a mason who didn't turn up. So we hadn't seen the news. I was looking after the granddaughters and trying to clean up mess and do washing up. DIL was removing the old plaster and exposing a stone wall in the sitting room. Dust everywhere!


I agree with Topbird when she said "And IMO a good life or person is all about kindness, compassion, courtesy and tolerance.


The people who commit these atrocities show none of those qualities. If there is an after life - they must be going to hell in a handcart. I have never seen a religious text which promotes the killing of innocent, decent people and their children - I have only heard twisted minds corrupting various religious teachings for their own ends."


Christianity teaches "love God and love your neighbour". It's people themselves who commit the violence and corruption. ISIL claim that the terrorist was one of them, but people who knew him say he wasn't religious but he was suffering from depression. Whatever it was, it was a dreadful thing to happen and so sad for the people who died and their families.

Bad year for raspberries

Posted: 16/07/2016 at 09:57

We had a good year for raspberries, but were away for 2 weeks of it, luckily housesitter froze several bags. When we came back OH picked all the redcurrants so I could make jelly. I only make jelly every 3 years, the other years I leave them for the birds who prefer them to raspberries. Side effect was that the birds then stripped the raspberries!

Glad you posted your lovely Etoile Violette, Fairygirl. Now I'm even more convinced that that is what my dark purple clematis is. A friend gave me the cutting a few years ago and she said it wasn't EV but she didn't know what it was. But now I've seen it labelled in English open gardens so I'm sure it is.
