Frost?

Thats unreal .....you can't have frosts in August.  I'm sure there is a law against it somewhere

What a great spot Dove.  Loved the swallows and amazons books (although I could never work out why the Susan's in books were always the bossy ones ).

so glad Lizzie and DD had a lovely catch up - hope DD makes it back with less events.  Woody is the other Forumer I have met - no photos then either - these days we could have done a selfie.  And i must have walked past Ggirl in the street - but think that is pushing the definition of "met" a bit far

I've met a few forumers. The worst bit by far is rocking up and annoucing "I'm Chicky" ...... Obviously didn't think it through when creating my profile. (Winky smile - on phone so can't do them for real.)

But everyone i have met has been lovely

Have a lovely time DD and Lizzie - well jel too !

New garden

Just caught up with this thread again - its looking idyllic Hollie - so pleased you have settled in to it so well.  You've made a big difference in the time you've been there, and if the weeds are flourishing in the other parts of the garden then its an encouraging sign.  Keep us posted

major pruning of plum tree - advice needed

Posted: 19/08/2014 at 06:49

Well i never knew that !  At what point in the year does the sap "change direction"??  Always get confused about plum tree pruning so if I understand the reason for the rules better I have more chance of remembering them
