HELLO FORKERS March 2016 edition

Morning all.

I'm glad your Dad's op went OK, Lesley.

Have a lovely holiday Lily P. Have you said where you are going?

It was so sad about SG Lily's friend, I remember her posts last week. Hugs to you Lily.

Gardening for me today, but it doesn't look as nice outside as they said it would be. Grey with a chilly wind.

Oh dear Yvie! Not the best way to learn to like riding, but it did make me laugh. Not the second time though, that sounded horrific, I hate heights.

Dove, that reminded me of a riding holiday I took my daughter on in Ireland, Dingle. We were both hurting and not getting on because of first OHs death, but we had a wonderful time galloping on beaches and riding up mountains. Connemaras and Irish Hunters though, not heavy horses.

I have red squirrels. They are quite shy, but I wonder if they took them.

I've stopped riding now, arthritis has struck, and nerves. I gave my lovely mare away to a young girl who grew out of her pony. Still have daughter's oldie (28) and her mare and my old mare (21) who was always a bit mad. Bought her cheap when first OH died, as a project. Think I was a bit mad too!

It works. It's looking great DD and so tidy. Cute lambs.

Are you sure? Not seen often, it's Australian and I think the leaves are shinier.

They are beautiful animals aren't they Dove? The flat racers are a bit too skinny and greyhoundish. My best friend at school trained steeplechasers, I was lucky enough to ride a couple when I went to stay. I never cared for the betting side, just liked to look at the horses.

Back from lovely meal out in pretty local town. A new bookshop with English books and a tea room has opened. The friendly owner is French. What will happen to people like that catering to the English (and Ryanair, for that matter) if England leaves the EU. Sorry, wrong thread

New flower bed

I hope they aren't Leylandii that you have in there already. They grow enormous.

Look up hardy perennials on Google if you want flowers that come up every year, but I think front garden beds like that look quite nice with shrubs in them, tallest in the middle and shorter round the edges. Look up Choisya, Weigela, Caryopteris, Sambucca Black Lace (will need yearly pruning), small leaved lilac etc.

I don't care for JV either.

What I can't understand is how they got into such a big fish tank. Apparently their mother thought they were playing upstairs. 2 years old is too young to leave children alone. I used to lock the back door if I needed the loo so mine wouldn't go outside without me.

I planted 400 in a well drained lawn, in sun, some years ago. They have disappeared over the years, one came up this year. I thought it was because they dried out too much in summer, can't have been waterlogging.
