Love the new look Dove.  wonderful carrots Lizzie - go for the taste prize

......And breathe ..... Exams over.  

have decided the best way to view a meadow is from ground level, with a glass of something cold

 Hope everything went well today Panda

Really great result Woody - glad it was such a success  You all have such lovely gardens to share, and great to make so much for your charites too.  Looking forward to the next one  Today is the day to put your feet up (find another bench) and enjoy 

Today is the last exam in the Chicky household.  Feels like a marathon six weeks.  Fingers crossed and good vibes for one last time - as this one is an important one (its the subject Chicklet wants to study at Uni, so top grades required).  

Great Finland pictures Liri - looks idyllic

hi Dacha and Denise

Photos welcome on here too, as is chat, coffee* and cake (*other beverages also available).  There is a picture thread too - Garden Pictures 2015 - that one is nice as it keeps all the photos in a place thats easy to find.  On dark, grey days I like starting at the beginning of the picture threads and gradually working my way through the seasons - makes me smile.  You can't do that on this Forker thread, unless you have lots of free time, inordinate patience and unlimited broadband
