HELLO FORKERS!

Morning Lesley.  You're doing the American thing too

Our office silence was broken by some (very important ones) tapping loudly away on their keyboards.  Just plain ignorant.  

HELLO FORKERS!

Very wet here - rain been drumming on the roof all night. Hope it clears by the weekend.  Gardening club tonight - AGM - next years programme will be revealed - hope its a good one.

Hope you all have a good day (sounding more and more like an American shop assistant )

Well the CW programme was an exact replica of our weekend last month - Beth Chatto, Hyde Hall, Maldon, Wivenhoe .....actually quite spooky  But enjoyed watching nevertheless

Welcome Bitterknitter - I'm originally from Southampton (well Hythe really - just a ferry ride away).

I get the not being able to correct stuff LP - happens a lot now, but never used to before about a week ago

On a train home from my Rembrandt evening - amazing . What a treat - had it to ourselves (invited as a guest of something connected with work). Incredible how he used a paintbrush to create such light. Always thought of him as a "brown" painter, but I have been completely missing the point

Do you grow Aconitum's?

I knew, but have now been reminded, that aconitums were very poisonous. A great many of this current young generation will know too - it features prominantly in Harry Potter. Now if only I could find a crumpled horn snorkak !!

Morning all

Not aching today - am obviously getting garden fit again 

Work today, but then off to see the Rembrandt exhibition this evening.  Normally prefer Monet et al, but we are being given a tour by the curator, so hopefully I will learn something

What's left for us to grow?

All those on your list are the things I can grow without fear of the deer munching them.  Seems they know they are not good for them too.

Front "garden" needs some inspiration!

my first choice for shade is always ferns - you couldhave a nice collection there, with the tall ostrich ones at the back and the painted japanese ones at the front
