Hello Forkers ... September edition

Morning all.

About to leave daughter and go home. OH rang. My plug plants have arrived, pansies, violas and bellis daisies.

I think euonymus, mine looks like that.

Cut them off. You don't want them on a variegated shrub so the pruning after flowering doesn't apply.

Sounds like scale insects. I have found them quite difficult to get rid of. There are products you can use which you will find in a Garden Centre.

Morning all, so glad about the little hedgehog.

Gorgeous photo from Chicklet.

Daughter and grandsons have gone to school. I must make a spag bol for their lunch, half day on Wednesdays.

Hello all. I'm at daughter's near Poitiers.

Saudi sounds awful.

Raisin girl said "Did you know, for example, that all women have exactly the same length arms?", but I know that's not true because daughter 2 is much taller than me, figure like a model, and her arms and her legs are longer than mine. My horse riding friend has longer arms than me too, we compared. I have quite short arms. I'm 5'3". I have come across hand dryers, like Liri, which are too tall and water blows up your sleeves.

Grandsons' tea time, see you later.

Crikey , that's a lot. We don't eat many spuds either, have stopped growing them.

They are both very pretty.

I should have another one but I'm off to child mind for daughter tomorrow, so it will have to wait.

Tense moment, Hosta.

Jeans buying is quite complicated. I hate skinny jeans and jeans on the hips that fall down when you walk. M&S used to be good, no longer. The last jeans I bought were in Bonmarché, cheap, don't fall down and boot cut.

Bought a couple of summer dresses this summer for 2 grandchildrens' christenings from Seasalt. Love them, below the knee, one with short sleeves, other with 3/4 sleeves, pretty fabric, comfortable.
