HELLO FORKERS May 2016 Edition

Shame I'm so far away. OH and I are just having an apéritif, Campari (yuk) for OH, sweet sherry for me.

Don't think my figure fits hot pants anymore. But wouldn't mind being in a lift with Poldark.  RB, Verdun's only jealous because he hasn't got brooding eyes like Aidan's.

Will be watching The Hollow Crown. I asked OH what we could watch before that and he said we could gaze into each other's eyes.

I hope you feel less rough tomorrow, Fairy. All that fresh air must be doing you good.

My Larkspurs and Orlaya haven't germinated  But last years clarkia has seeded itself all over the place, even though it's been rotavated.

Have planted out antirrhinums, cosmos and salpiglottis in the cutting bed. Also 3 Gypsophila Bristol Fairy that I'd grown in pots from bought roots. Something had nipped the cosmos seedling heads off - the seeds I sowed direct into the ground. Have planted out Little Gem lettuces.

Have had a big shuffle, there is now room to plant some tomatoes in the GH. Have re-sown the perpetual spinach, didn't germinate, think it was too cold when I sowed it.

Been letting horses into new paddock, chatting to daughters on phone, and planting stuff in veg garden and cutting bed.

Won't be watching Eurovision but used to when younger.

Oops! Forgotten to hang out the washing. See you later.

Depends how long you linger or whether you march straight through. We spent an afternoon, but you might do it in 2 hours. But it was July then.

Which petrol mower

I like Honda too, the easiest to start.

Agree, RB, half six is the middle of the night. But I have to get up then to let Tigger out, then I go back to bed.

Even worse - "unfollow" is bright purple which encourages you to click it when you don't want to!

Too cold and wet for gardening today. 13° in May in SW France, not normal. I would garden if it weren't raining though.

Nora said "LeadFarmer and Busy Lizzie - we won’t be adding the function to upload a picture from an external image host. My advice would be to save the file you want to upload to your device (making sure it’s JPEG, JPG or PNG) and upload it from there, or you can post a link."

Oh bother, I found that handy. And bother that we can't hover. And bother that we can't zoom on photos.

But it is getting better. Glad the page numbers are top and bottom now.

Think I would prefer the font a bit bigger and not so much spacing between the lines and print a little darker and background to the print a bit greyer (less white).

"Go to last unread post" is one of the things I miss most.

Thanks for dealing with edit.
