Good Evening FORKERS

Just watered my pots.  Been admiring my agapanthus which are blue as blue this year.  About to collapse.  Hope everyone has a great evening.

Michael - i sometimes get little gnats on my soil in the pots in the GH - never seem to do the plants any harm, but they make me itch just looking at them. I would just wait and see - as folks often say on here they have two chances !

Poor Lizzie - sounds uncomfortable - hope it clears soon.  Will be giving my liatris a wide berth.  Best blame it on the moles

Matty- what a worrying time for you - hope she is ok when you visit, and that it will put your mind at rest.

best get back to staring out the train window...

Mrs G - the first one is not a tree carving - its a carved log we brought back from an Austrian holiday (5€ !) - it has just been strategically placed to blend in with its host tree

Mrs G - your conifers reminded me of these fellas - mostly they just get ignored, but everynow and then someone notices them and does a double take !

Lavender - how to plant/space out so as to let plants thrive?!

Great advice - thanks Verd and Dove.  My lavendars actually came from Norfolk lavender (well some of them anyway) - on one of my Kings Lynn jollies

Morning Dove, and those yet to come.

Its got that autumn nip in the air these mornings -even though the days are turning out to be scorchers.

London town later - but first I must go water the greenhouse - and count the reddening toms!

No probs lucky3 - I remember songs much earlier back than that.  Its when I start singing Nancy Sinatra ditties that I really give the game away
