HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. Thanks Pat. What are craisins?

Last night's Turkish meal was yummy but such a lot I couldn't finish my main course, lamb, and they wrapped up my Halva to take away. My brother, sister and BIL managed to finish all theirs! OH didn't have pud. It was good to see them, but now we are going to Norfolk we'll see less of them. But my sister often goes to Norfolk on holiday, the Broads this year.

More packing today.

Can you Identify this Jasmine & Share any tips?

4301 Jasmine officianale has finished flowering by September, but I live in SW France. However, I thought it's normal flowering time is June - August. The polyanthum, which is often sold as a house plant, flowers early in the year. Wouldn't you want it in flower for the wedding?

Such gorgeous photos and those lupins are stunning.

What do I do now

Missed this thread, just seen it on the Snowdrop walk thread. I know just how you feel about it Nut. I'm no good at houseplants. Plants live outside in my book. It looks sort of plastic.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Well, I heard you got cold and wet and very muddy, Hosta, so that sounds like gardening to me!

Is that a clivia, Nut? I have a friend who grows them and she offered me one. I'm afraid I refused. She thinks they are gorgeous but they aren't really to my taste.

Hello. We arrived in Eastbourne last night. There was quite a swell on the sea, but I rather like the swaying feeling but hard walking.

Slept badly and the grandchildren wake up so early, flat not very soundproof.

Removal man came this morning with packing materials. Have only packed 5 boxes so far and 2 big bags of bedding. Having coffee break.

Going out this evening for meal in a Turkish restaurant with my sister and her OH and my brother. We'll be further from them in Norfolk. But for years I hardly saw them because of living in France.

Morning all. We'll be doing the same sort of thing as Clarice today, without the Scottish bit, ferry this evening. Eastbourne to pack up the flat then Norfolk on Monday to move into the cottage. Back to France, via son in Burgandy in 12 days.
