Some October blooms.

They are lovely Angie, the salvia goes very well with Darcie Bussell and Lady Emma H is my favourite too, I have her and some of the others.

Have you seen our garden pictures? http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/garden-pictures-2016/898196-88.html/  Also the My Flowers threads. That's where we post photos of our gardens. When people post regularly then those threads keep popping up for us to see, whereas single posts disappear under all the others eventually.

HELLO FORKERS! October Edition

Posted: 16/10/2016 at 14:12

Papi-Jo, Marmite is sold in Dordogne supermarkets, and Heinz baked beans.

An online plant company I have used  https://www.promessedefleurs.com/vivaces.html 

Do they have Jardiland, Gamm Vert or Truffaut where you are Obelixx?

I just posted the same time as Obelixx but mine isn't here and hers is! Laptop said there was a problem.

I was just saying that none of the supermarkets here sells sherry. I use Malaga or Madeira, but if Obelixx wants dry sherry I don't know what to suggest. We buy sherry in the UK if we take the car, or friends bring it.

My tummy is a bit unhappy this morning , was going to clear up the veggie garden.

Strictly is back!

DD, never mind about the Rochers, do they really go with red wine?  Now cheese goes nicely with it   Super U and Intermarché are both open on Sunday mornings near where I am.

Strictly is back!

Really enjoyed Strictly tonight.

Thought Danny was brilliant until Ore danced - amazing! Like Daisy and Louise. Laura should not have been in the dance off last week. Wish I could dance like Lesley, she's a few years older than me.

Still find Ed and Judge Rinder irritating. Is Judge his first name? I wouldn't be sorry to see Anastacia go either.

No one ever mentions Naga, always near the bottom, but I think she's sweet and I like her legs, very slender.

Last post I said I was going to lunch with my son after we'd been to the tip. Son lives in town with wife and 2 little boys, 1 & 2. His wife is newly expecting the 3rd, too early for scan. Poor girl was feeling sick so my son bought and cooked lunch. Roast beef, Yorkshire pud, peas, broccoli, new potatoes, gravy. His first attempt - it was great, puds golden brown and risen, beef perfect. I was a proud mum! Then 1yr old showed me how he could walk, learnt this week.

When we got home I planted 2 bags of daffodils, Thalia and Actea.

Really enjoyed Strictly. It has been a good day.

Farmyard manure & dogs

Posted: 15/10/2016 at 18:27

Dogs are curious creatures!

The heating up differently (I don't think they do though) is at the beginning when it's starting to rot. Once it's all rotted, a few months to a year later, and is dark and crumbly it isn't heating any more and you can use it.

Judy, is your manure fresh or rotted? Don't use it until it's rotted.

I think you have to check with your solicitor. It does seem a strange demand though and why should the builder bother about it now since it's not his any more, he's sold it to you.

Farmyard manure & dogs

My dog occasionally ate horse poo, I have horses, but when I spread manure as a mulch he usually didn't bother with it.

I've mixed it with compost in the bin, used it as a mulch and, especially when planting roses, mixed it by digging it into the earth.
