HELLO FORKERS!

Morning DD, Morning Lesley

Overcast here, so won't "see" the eclipse, but guess we will notice it go dark.  I remember the last one - very strange feeling.  All the birds stopped singing and Chicklet (who was 2) went inside to fetch her teddy and a bedtime book.  I can see why folks of old found them scary.

wonderful before and after pics yesterday - what a difference you have both made

Just monopolised the tv for 2 hours and caught up with Poldark.  very good, although I am missing Biggins

Have met Chris Beardshaw, and he was lovely.....and certainly not 5'2

managed to acquire another 2 hardy geraniums at lunchtime today - white ones this time.  Someone once said a garden could never have too many hardy G's ......I am rising to that challenge.

Glad to see OL is back

Have a great Galway trip Liri

Night all

Morning Lesley  Hopefully you are now snoozing away whilst MrK is doing the honours with your 4 legged friend

Had some very vivid dreams ...feel a bit wiped out now.  Hopefully a cuppa will help.

Some of my Sunday sown seeds are up already ..zinnias and love-lies-bleeding. First time for both with me. 48 hr germination can't be bad

 

Rose suggestions please

Lovely Joybell - very pretty pulmonaria.  Looks like inspiration for the phrase sky-blue-pink

Morning Dove .....guess I was feeling poetic

Rose suggestions please

hi Lyn.  A rambler will grow huge, so I would suggest a climber.  One of the most healthy in my garden is New Dawn - light pink, smallish flowers, that goes on flowering all season.  Or if you just want one spectacular show in June Cecil Brunner or Albertine are lovely.  I would always plant a rose in the ground if I could - but Busy Lizzie (who might be looking in later) has two gorgeous climbers growing happily in pots, so she might be able to tell you more
