HELLO FORKERS April 2016 Edition

Morning all.

Hugs to you, Chicky. I hope they find out what it is as soon as possible and put it right.

SM this morning, if OH is in agreement we may go to the GC and get some peppers, courgettes etc - never got round to sowing them. Or do you all think there is still time?

We flew back to France this afternoon. Thanks KEF. Flight was OK but the plane came in very fast and landed with a huge thud! Was sad to leave England.

House sitter has looked after my baby plants well, they and the garden ones are growing like mad. Leaves coming out on the trees, daffodils over, lilac showing colour. But the weeds are growing fast too, everything needs weeding

I live in Dordogne, some years the last frost is mid April, other years it's mid May. I don't put pelargoniums out until the first or second week of May. I remember, a few years ago, sleet and only 2° on the last weekend in May!

Verdun, no one accused you of lying, but you said "I was told their supply comes from B & Q." That is not quite the same as B&Q and Crocus using the same suppliers. No one has back pedalled either.

We went to Tesco, then a GC. Bought some seeds to take back. Then we went exploring and had tea in a tea room. Back to France tomorrow.

Thank you for setting that straight, Chicky. I have only heard good reports of Crocus from English friends.

I think we went through that bit of Norwich on Saturday! DIL and SIL got lost but found us eventually.

Great shed Solent Wind!

Glad you survived Hosta, I hope the pain goes soon.

We went for a midday drink with our nice neighbours.

Have planted the pots in the shade on the patio and raked the bank behind the wall and scattered a packet of mixed annuals seeds on it.

Garden table arrived, not broken this time, looks nice, has a tiled top.

What is your weather like?

Was a lovely day in Norfolk yesterday, except for a nippy breeze. Sunny, up to 14°. Today it's raining.

Maybe we could meet you there in June, Dove. Any more news of Ma? Such a worrying time of uncertainty for you.

B&Q have just been and collected the broken garden table they'd delivered. They'll be back later with the replacement.

We have been invited by neighbours for a drink at midday.
