HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 20/08/2014 at 06:47

Just been out to investigate a deer on the lawn - it gave me a defiant stare for a few seconds before bounding nonchalently away through the woods.  Don't let anyone tell you they are shy - they are brazen.  Luckily was only munching grass - pretty much everything else in that border is deer brussel sprouts.

however, point of the story is, it was pretty chilly out there

What a great spot Dove.  Loved the swallows and amazons books (although I could never work out why the Susan's in books were always the bossy ones ).

so glad Lizzie and DD had a lovely catch up - hope DD makes it back with less events.  Woody is the other Forumer I have met - no photos then either - these days we could have done a selfie.  And i must have walked past Ggirl in the street - but think that is pushing the definition of "met" a bit far

I've met a few forumers. The worst bit by far is rocking up and annoucing "I'm Chicky" ...... Obviously didn't think it through when creating my profile. (Winky smile - on phone so can't do them for real.)

But everyone i have met has been lovely

Have a lovely time DD and Lizzie - well jel too !

New garden

Just caught up with this thread again - its looking idyllic Hollie - so pleased you have settled in to it so well.  You've made a big difference in the time you've been there, and if the weeds are flourishing in the other parts of the garden then its an encouraging sign.  Keep us posted
