Hello Forkers December

Posted: 08/12/2016 at 10:40

Morning all.


I hope the rain stops, the sun comes out and you feel better Thank the Cat. Even Monty Don gets the winter blues.


Just been reading about Harriet Martineau, an interesting woman.


This afternoon a friend is coming to help me make bunches of evergreens with red ribbons to decorate the Abbey for Sunday's Carol Service. Luckily it's not raining. Quite sunny at the moment. We'll do it in the kitchen so I must tidy up a bit, work surfaces are a bit cluttered.

That's a shame about Ipswich, Wonky. I was hoping to go next year, don't like the thought of gun crime.


Glad OH's birthday lunch was good, Obelixx.


I'm surrounded by mixed forest but Nuthatches only started coming about three years ago.

Vinegar?

Copy and paste it and click the space bar. Now I'll go and look at it!

We sometimes get nuthatches too. So pretty, but shy, never managed to get a good photo.


Topbird, I was born in Ipswich but haven't been back since. We were thinking of going one day. Is it worth a visit? Wonky would know.


Did the weekly shop after this morning's meeting, then went to the GC and bought a Christmas tree.


Tomorrow a friend is coming round to help me make evergreen bunches to decorate the Abbey for Sunday's Carol Service.

Morning all. Good to see Fairy back. Lovely photo Clarice.


Going to a meeting in town this morning. I should have said city, as Dove does for Norwich, it has a cathedral, but Périgueux, although it's the capital of Dordogne, isn't very big so it doesn't feel like a city. Then shopping. Must make 100 mince pies for the Carol Service in the Abbey on Sunday, need butter and flour.

Good to have you back Fairy. I hope your hand/wrist is OK. Fabulous photos again.


I always watched the Landscape Artist of the Year, but OH has stopped Sky so missed it this year. Didn't always agree with the judges though!

Thank you, Kitty and Joyce. I did see this thread, and posted, when it very first started but it's so different now.


I'm off to write Christmas cards too.

The search doesn't even bring everything up and most relevant often isn't.

Hello Marion. I'm glad you have your laptop back. I like your owl photo. My daughter had the Generous Gardener, it's a beautiful rose, now on my wish list.


You will have a perfumed kitchen today, instead of a perfumed garden!


Your alpine plants sound exciting.


I'm still in the middle of planting tulips, had rather a lot, and now there are Christmas cards to write.
