HELLO FORKERS! November Edition

Glad the site's back.

Not a good start to the day, Joyce, but hope the problem is solved now and it doesn't happen again.

I've actually managed to get out into the garden today, dug up the dahlias and begonias in troughs and re-planted - but couldn't finish because I ran out of potting compost. OH has swept up 6 big barrow loads of leaves from the kitchen terrace.

Using a SatNav is nothing to be ashamed of, Lesley, I often use one, very good in towns.

I hope, since we had before pictures, that we'll get after pictures from Obelixx, minus stripes!

Pat, we are often in bed at 8am and don't feel guilty.

We have just enjoyed a programme set in the war in Ireland. "My Mother and Other Strangers."

Does the budget run to cold frames for hardening plants off in?

You've done a great job and a nursery bed area can be really useful.

Clarice, your picture made me feel all funny! Pepsi looks exactly like my Border Collie cross, Meggie, who we moved to France with in 1985. She lived to be 16 yrs.

Back from lunch with friends. Had a lovely Remembrance service this morning in Church.

The French have lollipop trees all over the place. I think the French chap who cuts my logs thinks my garden is a mess. At the moment, because we went to England for 2 weeks, my garden is a bit of a mess though, I seem to have got behind.

Morning all.

Grey and damp here too, no chinks.

Sounds funny to read that Pat is planting her tomatoes!

Looks damp and grey this morning, 6°, so warmer than a couple of days ago when there was a -3° frost.
