HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: Today at 06:44

Morning.  Dark when the alarm went off this morning .... But have just been out picking raspberries for my breakfast regardless .... which still makes it technically summer, doesn't it.

hope all have a good week - esp OL and OH, as they start their new Venture.

Great photos Liri - and what a transformation

Hope GD gets some sleep Yvie - poor thing.  On cracked chimney pots - i plant mine up with plastic pots that i slot in the top of the chimney - don't think a crack would hurt doing it that way.

night all

Littlest chicklet had the hand/foot/mouth thing when she was five - horrible, horrible illness.  her mouth was so sore all she could eat was soggy weetabix and mashed potato and gravy.  Hope your GD picks up soon Yvie.

nice day out, but lots of traffic on way home, so am feeling a bit jaded.  And also a bit concerned that my w/end seems to have disappeared so quickly ..... does someone speed up the Sat and Sun hours??

Lovely here.  Off to the New Forest for lunch with my Dad and sisters, and a bit of a walk afterwards.

Home now.....SB poured

OL, Fairy ... Think we are all at a similar stage, lovely in many ways, poignant in others.  But lovely to hear from Liri and others who have been there too.

Good luck with the new business - all v exciting, but bound to be a bit daunting too.  But you are throwing your hearts into it, and deserve every success

Thanks for the aconitum tips Verd - will keep an eye on the moisture levels next year. Mine are Bressingham blues - think they are an August variety

On a train home from York - successful day (another Uni to add to the list of potentials) - but a long way for a daytrip! Still, chicklet loved it, and is all fired up again at the thought of her future. Best not let her know her Mum is crying inside . Got enough sense to keep that as my secret

Glad the West Acre trip was a success - great pics on the other thread - an inspiring place !
