HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 05/10/2015 at 06:43

Morning all

glad Wonky will be waking up in her new home - sounds like you are nearly there now.  Bit of a marathon weekend, but will be worth it when you are all settled and the garden is just outside your back door

expecting the weather to change today - too dark to see what's happening out there at the moment, but can't hear the rain yet.  Hopefully it will blow itself out this week and we'll get another fine weekend.  After all, there is a Forker wedding to look forward to

best get a wiggle on .....

Which Agapanthus?

I have ordered from Pine Cottage plants before - they were excellent ....and even threw in freebies

Time for planting bulb lasagne

I "lasgne" my tulips - just so that I can cram more in a pot.

Don't the whites just lift it to another level Fairy. Its really looking good out there.  Good to see you, and your Garden, Mrs G - its lovely, and hope you are keeping well too.

Lemon queen is such a fantastic plant Yvie - doesn't it just make you smile.  As do the butterflies Bob .....never tire of seeing them - especially the colourful ones. 

Have really enjoyed all this sunny weather - hopefully my meters are charged enough to get through a rainy week to come

Maintenance only anyone?

Have enough trouble with the one I've got Hosta .....couldn't face finding a new one

Maintenance only anyone?

If I ever get to "maintenance only" I’d have to find a new hobby ....but its not likely to happen any time soon

I'm like you Liz - always leave planting my tullip bulbs til November.  I think the other ones will be fine if they are planted then too - i have planted (forgotten) bulbs in December before now and they all came up fine - daffs, scilla and chinodoxa

I'm flolloped too Dove. Long bike ride, even wore Mr Chicky out. But very pretty North Hampshire countryside - the hedgerows are just laden with all sorts of berries.  No way am I planting any plants today - theres always next weekend.

And when it comes to bumping off Rob in the Archers .....can I join the queue please

Mr Chicky found a new chain and has just fitted it, so off we go

Welcome back KEF.  Hope you had a great time.  Loved Corfu when we went a few years ago

Go for it Clari ...life always feels better when you take control.

Morning all

going on a bike ride - not sure whether I will be able to use my normal noble steed (OH is investigating whether he can get a new chain on a Sunday), or a mountain bike with tyres like a tractor.  If its the latter, I will get a real workout.

Hope to find time to plant my new purchases when I get home - might as well make the most of the rainy week to come to settle them in.

Enjoy lunch Dove, hope you make lots of progress Wonky.....off to find Fairy's pics now
