Gorgeous colour roses DD - the neglect obviously suits them
Verdun - I have kniphofia envy. All mine flower in June, and I am looking for some August ones - do you know what sort they are.....my search may well be over
I just hang them from one of the tree branches Liri (they are small trees, about 5 years old - I am hoping that as they get bigger and more prolific there'll be enough for us and the squirrels to share). I use smelly soap at the moment, and have not noticed that the fruit tastes of it - i guess there's a lot of fresh air out there for it to diffuse to
Panda, this ones for you:
Hope all goes well
Thanks Dove - not sure why I didn't think of that. Some camphor "scented" ones on order, and when the smell runs outI can soak them in turps
No other meaning Lily - the road is called the Trollstigen, or the Troll's Way - so he thought it a fitting trophy
pleased to hear Wonky had a good first day - they're always the worst. Hope Runny Jnr had similar
Dove -DON'T PEDAL BACKWARDS !!!!! You'll end up on the floor !
At a wild guess your right handlebar will have about 7 gears that you can move up and down gently, with only a slight difference between them, whereas the left handlebar will have 3 settings which make the 7 all high, all medium or all low. You will manage perfectly with the lefthand set on medium all the time until you get more adventurous. To change gear you have to keep pedalling
However, in my yoof, I cycled up here
Still have the same bike!
Mr Chicky bought me one of these as a reward
He still sits on my desk at work ....but not many people know why
Means Bridget Jones Diary will be unintelligible to the next generation
home early for once - time to fill up the bird feeders and pick some sweetpeas before Pilates. Love my bike at the moment - used my top gears for the first time this weekend (after Mr Chicky haranguing me) - amazed me the speed you can go with very little effort. As for the low gears, I use them at the slightest hint of an incline, coz I am a wuss
Squirrels are a pain here - they take small apples and this year our plums have been disappearing too. I hang little bags of soap on the trees - sometimes works. Used soap as I couldn't source mothballs - anyone know where to get hold of them?
Morning Wonky - we crossed. Happy Hour will be my House Martins song of the day
