Hello Forkers - March Thread

Wrote this yesterday for Topbird in case you are still interested.

"If Topbird is around, meant to say earlier, I'd go for the Ford rather than the Kia. Speaking from experience of hired cars on our travels. Kia is one of my least favourites."

Welcome Jamie, hope you like it here. I expect you've gathered that this thread is for chatting, if you want to ask about plants you can start a thread and people will try to answer your question.

OH has bought me a large pot for my Eden rose and a bag of compost but I'll put earth and manure in too. It's stone coloured, like the house wall it's going against.

Congratulations to Fritillary and daughter!

Most French houses I know have cluster flies in one room, usually facing west. They come in to hibernate and wake up in Spring. Mine go in a spare bedroom but I don't know where they go in between coming in and going out.

Morning all.

Good luck with the dentist, Joyce.

Damn deer have eaten all my tulip buds in the lower part of the garden where it isn't fenced  They've never done that before.

Kitty - 4 cups! Won't you be on the loo all morning?

Thanks obelixx. Choir always does a big religious work for Easter time. Should have been the St. John's Passion, but so many people were ill and the Messiah is easier. Not really my cup of coffee either! I make sandwiches for the orchestra.

Morning all. Good luck at the dentist, Joyce.

LG are you giving up work? I saw that 25% were leaving. Have you got plans for something else?

We are going to a new little GC, they had some nice pots, OH said he'd buy me one for my new Eden rose.

Sun is shining. I think I'll put my germinated seedlings into the GH where it's lighter than the window sill. Means putting the heater on, but I will have to anyway tomorrow as plug plants are arriving

We watched a recorded Midsomer Murders and Kensington Palace. Sounds as though we should have watched the Stargazing programme.

We went to Brantôme today to give out posters for the concert OH is singing in "The Messiah". Then we saw a friend of OH's. Then I spent the afternoon tidying up 2 climbing Cecile Brunner roses, filled the trailer twice. Much scratching from CB and cursing from me.

I have bothers with feet and shoes too. Feet seem to have got wider with age and I can't take heels any more. Some of the Hotter ones are OK. Sandals in summer are OK, like M&S Footglove, but I don't care for this year's range.

This afternoon I've been tackling 2 big Cecile Brunner climbing roses. Arms are quite scratched and a lot of swearing happened.
OH has mended the swimming pool fence that blew down in the gales, involved mixing cement.
