HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 21/04/2015 at 23:36

Thank you to all who gave advice on Garibaldi biscuits and mint creams. Tracked them down in Waitrose and 97 yr old auntie in nursing home was delighted.

May go and look at a garden tomorrow. Last day here before going back home to France.

Morning all.

Ouch Bekkie.

Sun is shining.

I would love a share of Poldark, but don't think OH would be happy and Poldark may think a 27 year old would be too old for him. So I'll stand back and admire from afar as though he were a beautiful painting.

We met some of my mother's cousins today and found that the daughter of one of them, my second cousin, used to live opposite OH's daughter.

I agree there, can't watch them on TV anymore. Greg is creepy and I hate the way John eats.

Having a go at a cut flower patch...

Hello all, I'm a bit of a latecomer to this thread, seem to have missed it. And my friend Matty is here! I suppose in Feb/march I was too busy having bronchitis and I hadn't yet decided to have a cut flower bed. But I decided to do one in the veggie garden and sowed cornflowers, clarkia, larkspurs, calendula and lavatera Silver Cup directly into it. Oh and French seeds called Balsamine that I don't know. I have Cosmos, Ageratum Blue Mink and Zinnias in the GH which I will plant mid May.

When we left France last Thursday to spend a week in England (family visit) they had just germinated so I hope the house sitter is looking after them.

Sunny here. I have been glad of the fleece.

There were plants for sale at Bodium Castle yesterday, at least 4 that I want, including that purple lysimachia that Verdun mentioned, but we are going back by Ryanair

You will have to, RB, for the 2nd series!

Glad Chicky and punkdoc had good times.

We went to Bodium Castle and took the steam train to Tenterden, where we had a lovely lunch.

SG Lily, my sister recently moved from Surrey, is now near the Ashdown Forest.

Morning all.

Going out with OH's daughter, SIL and their 2 LOs today. Little boy loves steam trains so may go on one.

HELLO FORKERS!

Thank you Fidget and RB. Those are the peppermint creams that OH remembers, but forgot the name. I'll try Tesco for the Garibaldis. Simple pleasures are important when you're 97 and in a nursing home.
