Morning DD - seems I wasn't first after all


Posted: 29/05/2015 at 07:13

Morning all  Didn't expect to be first this morning - had a mini lie-in on account of the fact that I don't have to get in the car (wfh this morning, so the commute involves a short trip down the stairs)

Got this afternoon off as some old school friends are coming over - we keep in touch by letters in birthday/christmas cards, but haven't seen either for about a decade

Do I get a prize for the earliest use of the word Ch****mas this year ????

Thats the trouble Joybell - this thread is disastrous for my bank balance.  Thankfully I already have the President and Warsaw Nike .....but nowhere near flowering yet.  Yours are looking wonderful, so the anticipation is building.

such a cute pic of Flynn

Hi OL - i'm still around ....well just. Great news on the goosegogs .....I'm sure plants respond to those "you've got ONE more year" threats

Great news about mum Liri.  Carnegie Hall .....we once stayed at a hotel just opposite.  We had a sneakypeek in the lobby at the decor ....very impressive.  Will you be in the audience Lizzie, or supporting in the wings?  i've heard wonderful things about the new skywalk gardens in NY (i think its called something like that) - will you have time for sightseeing?

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Morning Dove.  Just been watching our feathered friends mob the feeders here too....its certainly an excitable time of year, and they don't seem to have got the hang of the queue concept

Morning all

Hope you got your bid finished Clari - and that it gets you the funding.  So annoying when you get landed with an impossible deadline due to someone elses incompetence.  But sometimes adrenalin can produce the best results.....hopefully your case will now be so compelling it will be impossible to refuse

Garden's looking great Womble .....every time you post another pic, a further transformation has taken place

Good luck with the driving lessons Winter ....gotta put that new car to good use
