HELLO FORKERS!

I heard from Bev in November. She was back at work, teacher. She'd been ill and off work so probably had more time to post then.

Bedtime. OH is flying Ryanair tomorrow morning to see family in England. I'm staying here to look after the animals. Will see son, lives near me, tomorrow. Night all.

? FarmYard Manure.

It sounds dreadful in Cornwall and the Somerset levels on the news looked very scarey. I hope everyone is OK and managing. Sounds awful about the sewers not working as flooded and electricity cut off. Surely it must stop raining soon.

 A very gloomy day in the rain.

Last year we had a thread of photos of our gardens  http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/garden-gallery-2013/75578.html

Has anyone started one for this year? Here is one if you would all like. David has the camera thread, but he said we could post other photos there, this is for your own gardens.

Not much going on in February but there is proof of huge amount of rain and some snowdrops just starting.

Full wheelbarrow, rain.

 

I think it's done them all in the wrong order, again.

 I love the idea of you keep the old ways go ing biz liz. What do you do now?

 

Do you mean milking my cows WW? Last one died a few years ago, aged 17. Didn't want any more as children had left home and husband had died. She hadn't had a calf for a few years and had got a bit on the plump side! But French supermarkets sell pasteurized milk now. Doc said I shouldn't milk as arthritis was starting in my fingers.

Nut's one is Butcher's Broom, as she says, it's too prickly for floristry. Grows wild in the woods round here.

When we first came to France all the milk was sterilised and tasted cooked. I used to buy it from a local farm instead. Then we bought an old farmhouse with some land so we bought a Jersey cow. I used to milk her and then her daughter. Amazing milk and cream and I made cheese too.

Snowdrops have started

My beautiful red Megane estate car that I love so much has just failed it's MOT. Don't know the word in English, but it's something to do with a ball joint in the steering (I think). I have 2 months to get it sorted. My car was born in January 2004, I bought it secondhand in Nov. 2004. Previous owners were expecting 4th baby and need a bigger car. Can't believe it's 10 already. Never gone wrong before.

Well done the Clueless family. Better change your name, can't be Clueless after all to produce your son. Hope it goes well for him and he enjoys his school.

This forum has different threads for different things, there is the Forkers one just for chat. Generally the people here like gardening, but there are other things going on in our lives that we like to chat about - and why not?

My OH came from a mining family. His mother wanted him to get out of that so entered him for the 11 plus so he went to Grammar school then won a Scholarship for a private school then got a place in University and got a good degree in Physics. Had a good job, never looked back. I think it's harder for the young nowadays though.

Sorry, not without a photo. Are the flowers coloured? Could it be some sort of fern? There is a sort of asparagus with a ferny leaf with flowers on it Asparagopsis setacea.
