HELLO FORKERS!

Giggling here - you lot are on form today

Wisley was lovely, as ever.  Fell in love with crab apple "gorgeous" (but thanks Woody and Fairy for your thoughts too ) - decided to come home and do a bit of research before purchasing a pair for the back of my flower garden.

OH bought an oak leaf hydrangea, and uncle found a daphne - so car was a bit leafy on the way home.  Also visited a heather exhibition and found that there is a specialist nursery about a mile from us - we even know his neighbour.  I have planted a few in a difficult bank this year - if they thrive, i might be paying him a visit.

footie on the telly, so time for a glass of something and a catchup on here.  Have a great evening all.

Clocks go forward tonight

Congrats to Auntie Panda - lovely news

We are promised a sunny day, but not much sign yet.  Off to Wisley for a wander - hope its suitably autumnal.

planning to spend some birthday vouchers on a crab apple - has anyone any experience of red sentinel ??

Morning MrsG.  Your son has a great Mum behind him.  You are right that you should not have to become a self taught lawyer/medic/teacher .... Hope you navigate the new ways - and it ends up being a better system.  

Hope Mr KEF's back is better this morning - back pain is horrible

Lizzie - so sad.  The poor old thing was shown kindness in her last days - .that counts for lots.

work today, then my uncle arrives this evening for a weekend stay.  He is an enthusiastic 80 something gardener, so a trip to Wisley is definitely on the cards

Hiya Stacey - great to see you posting, and so pleased you are making progress.  Bless your LO's cotton sox - a real gardener in the making.  Many ((hugs)) on their way.

It's my birthday

Glad you enjoyed your quiz Lizzie  And great to hear everything is starting so well for OL and Mr OL (hopefully your isolation from the news has shielded you from the footie results too).

it is so dark here in the mornings now - but clocks back this weekend, so we'll get some light back for a few more weeks.  Shame we have to lose it in the evening to compensate.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Matty - thinking of you and sending positive thoughts and prayers your way. ((Hugs))

Lily - certainly a roller coaster for your friend - hope things settle happily for her soon.

OL - we are sharing your smiles too.
