HELLO FORKERS!

Littlest chicklet had the hand/foot/mouth thing when she was five - horrible, horrible illness.  her mouth was so sore all she could eat was soggy weetabix and mashed potato and gravy.  Hope your GD picks up soon Yvie.

nice day out, but lots of traffic on way home, so am feeling a bit jaded.  And also a bit concerned that my w/end seems to have disappeared so quickly ..... does someone speed up the Sat and Sun hours??

Lovely here.  Off to the New Forest for lunch with my Dad and sisters, and a bit of a walk afterwards.

Garden not getting much of a look in this weekend

Home now.....SB poured

OL, Fairy ... Think we are all at a similar stage, lovely in many ways, poignant in others.  But lovely to hear from Liri and others who have been there too.

Good luck with the new business - all v exciting, but bound to be a bit daunting too.  But you are throwing your hearts into it, and deserve every success

Thanks for the aconitum tips Verd - will keep an eye on the moisture levels next year. Mine are Bressingham blues - think they are an August variety

On a train home from York - successful day (another Uni to add to the list of potentials) - but a long way for a daytrip! Still, chicklet loved it, and is all fired up again at the thought of her future. Best not let her know her Mum is crying inside . Got enough sense to keep that as my secret

Glad the West Acre trip was a success - great pics on the other thread - an inspiring place !

Feel exactly the same as you Cornish Clare ! For 18 years now its been the music that says "the weekend's started" - absolutely love it.

Am humming it now

Correction - was humming it, but on a train and my daughters are threatening to disown me as a crazy lady

Stunning Verd - so pleased you can now share pics (cheapo or not, they look great to me!)

Like Victoria, love the colours in the first one esp - the dahlia and the red grass are superb together.

Never tried acteas - might have to go on my ever growing list

I planted a couple of aconitums last year (got the from West Acre, as it happens) - this year they look healthy, with lots of foliage, but no flowers - do they take a while to settle in?
