HELLO FORKERS! part two

Posted: 25/02/2016 at 08:51

Morning all. Late this morning - have a Drs appt in a bit, so I'm sat in the carpark noodling away the minutes

Great evening with my "garden club" friends last night. Herefordshire has been selected as our destination for a weekend away this September.  A few potential gardens already on the visiting list .....but if anyone has any "must sees" round that way then let me know

Another night out with old (non-gardening) friends this evening .....feeling like a social butterfly this week  Don't worry, normal chrysalis state will return very soon

Glad the doctor was pleased Pat. Should be a weight off your mind

Got an evening out planned tonight with the girls I went garden visiting with (Sissinghurst/Dixter et al) last September.  We are choosing where to head to for the next jaunt, so should be fun

But before that.......got a day of grafting to get through

Gu pots and pringle lids.

Got some Heyland and Whittle gardener's handcream as a Christmas gift - seems to be making a difference, plus it smells lovely 

I've found the only way to keep my nails clean for work is to clean the bathroom on a Sunday evening ......no wonder I need handcream

Morning Dove  Also meant to say that I had a look round the Secret Garden last night - it has a nice feel to It.  Is that the sort of thing to expect from the re-launch?

Morning Dove, Hello Pat

Lots of twittering and cheeping going on out there. Some more germination happening on my windowsill - only 2 of the 7 trays yet to appear - happy days

Feeling a bit subdued - missing Chicklet I guess .  A few hours at the saltmine should sort me out
