Interesting to read Hazel's post above, I've hardly been able to access the forum today, thought my lap top was cracking up. I haven't read back yet, took ages to get to the Hello Forkers thread and the previous page there.

Laptop seems to be working now, just managed to read previous page, 11.20pm.


I bought a winter honeysuckle for the scent, but I can hardly smell it. There was something gorgeous in the GC today that smelt sweet and a bit honeyish, but I couldn't trace what it was.

I've had problems again with Internet, yet OH's laptop is working fine and so is his iPad. It's as though  my laptop loses the WiFi signal and gets stuck. Haven't read back as every time I click on the previous page  it gets stuck and nothing happens. So frustrating. Think my laptop might be dying. Yet it seems to work late in the evening.

Lovely photos. Our first house in France was a watermill (damp!). The mill stream ran under the house and a couple of dippers nested there. It was great watching them diving.

At first I thought Obelixx was inviting Bishops for tea and they were going to eat After Eights


Well done, Clari, and it's good that you were thanked.

Be careful if you get 2 different pruning groups with similar leaves. You won't know which to prune when! Otherwise that could work well. Evergreen clematis flower very early in the year. Have a look at this site, lots of info.  http://www.taylorsclematis.co.uk/

Apple Tree Yard got much better, no more sex scenes! Quite tense and changed to court scenes. Her relationship with her husband got better too.


I like The Halcyon about a hotel in World War 2.

I think a rose and a clematis would work well together, but I think Sweet Peas are best on their own. Sweet peas need thin closer together supports to climb up, like wires. My OH put up a trellis for sweet peas for me in the veg garden but they find the wood too thick for their tendrils and I have to give them extra support. Sweet peas also need regular picking to keep them coming and it's not so easy when they are wound around other plants especially roses with prickles!


I have a pale pink "The New Dawn" rose growing with a purple clematis on a stone pillar, that works well and the clematis keeps flowering when the rose has stopped.

Oh dear, punkdoc, join the club! My cough has almost gone, but I still have some rib pain. Take things easy if you can.

Morning all.


Had trouble getting here again, still won't let me see the previous page.


Quiet day planned. I'm sticking photos of our trip to New York in 2015 (when OH and choir sang in Carnegie Hall) in an album. I took so many photos of Central Park etc. Trying to weed some out or there won't be room.


OH is going to choir practice tonight, so I'll do an afternoon meal.
