Hope Fairylet enjoys her prom Lovely to see them all dressed up Littlest chicklet's is next Friday - in fact just been getting toenails painted in anticipation. ( I joined in - prom Mums have to flaunt their toes too). Chicklet has one the week after, but my sewing machine requires an outing for that one...not quite the right fit yet
Looking forward to meeting you too Ggirl ....we should be there about midday, so 1pm at Woody's sounds a perfect plan. Will PM you my phone number just in case plans change.
Great prize Wonky. And welcome Dacha - love that fire
Morning Hosta - glad you escaped hail and thunder ....a good bit of ordinary rain would not go amiss around here
Morning all The thought of discounts hadn't even crossed my mind Panda
Very overcast and gloomy out there ....feels like a storm brewing
One more day, then a lovely weekend to look forward to. Woody, if you're looking in, good luck with the finishing touches - I am sure its looking wonderful
Welcome back Fidget glad you had a good time, and came back with swag. In my yoof I abseiled, rock climbed and gorge walked on the Barmouth slabs
Littlest chicklet has finally finished her 17 exams. To celebrate, she went for a job interview on the way home - she got it, so will now be working every Sunday in.....wait for it.....the local GC. Which means I will have to make a trip there at least once a week. This could be expensive. Chicklet still has one more exam next Tues, and then we can finally all relax. Thanks so much for all your good wishes, crossed fingers, and support over the last six weeks - means a lot
Wow - gorgeous rose Winter - what is it? That pergola is getting clothed quickly too
Loving Verdun's parking wall too. So much to look at
Plant out all those things I have in pots .....would save me hours of watering time
Mine are doing well - but its only in the last couple of weeks that they have really taken off - the cold nights kept holding them back. Hopefully now the weather is getting better, others will have success too
Must get some sweet rocket for next year - i keep admiring it in other peoples gardens .....now, where to find a spot .......
Lesley has provided my first giggle of the morning Can't be bad
I like watering too - as you say, it forces you to slow down.
Stephen Lacey was a very entertaining speaker - learned lots too. Will have to have a think about plants to fill the scent gaps I have .....although the roses are getting into their stride out there at the moment, so this time of year is covered nicely.
Well I can confirm its gall midge - tiny bright orange worms that look like part of the stamen until you stare long enough to see them moving
Is picking the bad buds off enough to break the cycle do you think?
