HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all, and a special morning for our good friend Dave.

Potty - sounds idyllic being that close to a beach - and great that daughter has inherited your passion for pots.

Am hoping to get out there for a bit of gardening later.  Little bit disappointed that my family are descending en masse for the day on Sunday, and it is the only day torrential rain is forecast

Another good guy - Pine Cottage Plants in Devon - beautiful (huge) agapanthus arrived yesterday, as promised, and they even threw in a little baby one in a pot for good measure, which was a lovely surprise

Mine arrived a few weeks ago - no scabious, penstemmon instead...... No campanula, aubretia instead.  However, all are growing away well - just about to graduate to 9cm pots

I used to use the Readers Digest Gardening year a lot - it prompts you what to think about each month.  I also take two gardening magazines ( GW - obviously - but also the English Garden).  And these days i use this forum - never failed me yet !  Its like having a load of gardening experts at your personal beck and call 24 hours a day - LOVE it 

Really hope your house purchase goes through, and that we start seeing loads more of you

Plant ID please

Art - was it part of the KL festival (?wrong time of year?).  My grandparents and Aunt were avid festival goers - plenty to keep culture vultures happy in that corner of the country

Love heleniums too - only have two varieties, but they flower for ages in my reddy/orange bit of border.  Moorheim beauty and Sahins early, for those who like particulars

Still in bed too Mrs G .  Although have been for a GH check and garden wander.  Then came back to bed, which is probably even worse.  Still, next week this forker will be back to her 6.30am posts, so might aswell enjoy whilst i can
