Hello Forkers January 2017 Edition

I've now had 3 catalogues  and have ordered some plug plants, annuals.


https://www.promessedefleurs.com/vivaces.html  Haven't had annuals from them before, but they do Isotoma, Ammi Visnaga, Osteospermum Terracotta that I couldn't find anywhere else. Coming end of March. Hope they are OK.


2pm here and still only -4°. The dining room is only +4°, heating is only on for dinner parties, few and far between in winter, last used for Christmas with the fire lit too.


Off to look at next catalogue.

Plant orders for 2017

I think you can order them but they aren't sent until spring. At least that's what happens here in France. We are back from Norfolk and there was a seed catalogue and a plug plant catalogue waiting.

Hazel I got your PM, replied. Couldn't earlier as our flight was called and the train at Stansted had broken down so we had to walk miles to our gate. Laptop has been on a go slow since we got home, probably updating lots of stuff as it hasn't been used for 12 days.


Housesitter said everything was fine, but there were feathers on the door mat, which means naughty Alexa cat has been up to no good.

We are home now, well, a couple of hours ago. Just had a sad phone call to say the lovely Maire of our village has died, funeral on Thursday. He's been Maire since before we bought this house in 1990.

We are waiting at the airport.


Hazel, do you accept PMs? you asked Lantana to PM you, but I tried recently and the site said this member doesn't accept PMs.

Morning all. We are waiting at the airport.


Dove, that is just what the lurgy did to me. I've had it three weeks now, think at last it is getting better, although I'm still coughing and very tired.

Crikey Fidget, that's fast work! Is your house on the market yet? I hope you aren't feeling too stressed.


That sounds really radical, Dove. Won't you get cold? Winter isn't over yet!


I got up really late today, then we've been doing HW in the cottage as we are leaving tomorrow. But I'm feeling really tired and pathetic and legs feel like they have weights on them. Rib hurts. I'm a wimp with pain. Still coughing.

Don't know that I was expecting to have so many! Christmas and birthdays are getting expensive! But they are lovely, each one different which helps you to remember their names.


But yours sounds very special, Paula, after such a long wait.

Long sleeved (for warmth) nightshirt from Sainsbury's tonight, think it was £12. Couldn't find a suitable one in M&S.
