HELLO FORKERS!

That sounds a great day Lily.

I enjoyed my lunch out at the new restaurant run by a young couple. There were 16 of us.

Can't get peanuts for birds in France, but sunflower seeds are cheap and sold in the supermarket. Sunflowers are grown all around here, so pretty when out and so sad and messy when over.

Well, I was disappointed by the public's choice tonight. I thought there were 3 other couples who were worse than the 2 in the dance off.

Yviestevie said "Not important as far as the forum is concerned, I tend to hang around and pick up crumbs of information from the great and the good."

Yes you are important to the forum, you are a valuable member.

Verdun, did you have a few drinks at that nightclub when you picked up your niece? Or did the early morning bedtime turn your head???  But you are funny

I'm important to my OH, my children, my pets and my garden. Does that make me as important as you?

Morning all. Glad the TWIGS had a good day. I looked up TWIGS on the Search facility, it only mentioned them once and that wasn't the time when it was explained. All the twigs it came up with were in little letters and belonged to trees and shrubs. I hope I can become a temporary member next year, mother's family are from East Anglia.

Lunching out today.

Ideas Please

I think nutcutlet is right. Monty just used the tool but he didn't say what make it was, or show a label. I don't think he would have been paid extra for that. Hard to make a gardening programme without showing any garden tools.

Glad it was a successful day Chicky.

Finished putting gravel around the shed, looks a lot neater. Emptied 4 troughs and 3 pots of summer bedding and added some new compost, ready for pansies, violas and wallflowers. Lots more to do though. Sowed sweet peas.

Going to new restaurant after church tomorrow in the village where church is. Run by a young couple. Quite a few of us are going.

I think there was a thread about bulb planters before. My OH bought me one last year and it was a great help planting daffodils. He found it on the internet. But the earth (clay) was hard to get out. OH found a metal parasol stand and I pushed the earth out with that. Worked a treat.
