HELLO FORKERS! September Edition

Posted: 13/09/2016 at 06:57

Back home now from a truly wonderful trip Can't resist one last postcard, of the most bonkers church I have ever seen, and its interior, which had every inch covered in mosaics




Trip home was good - always seems very strange that you can spend a morning running round foreign streets and climbing cathdral steps (worth it for the view) and still be home in time to water the GH before the sun goes down.


And now ......gotta go to work


Have only done a skimread catch up - Big hugs for those who need them (())

I chose my coat specially to go with the decor


A truly enchanting city ..... Best go make the most of our final morning

Greetings from Russia  Trip has started well



Have just taught myself thankyou and goodbye ......decided that, and liberal application of cheery smiles, should just about cover it

Morning peeps


Just been raspberry picking .....feels pretty warm out there


Littlest Chicklet presented me with a list of Uni open days she would like to go to last night. MrC is going to have to do the honours for a couple, as I am already booked for things.....but seems like every Saturday in October and November will see "Chicks on Tour" .......might keep a tally of miles travelled just for the lols

Is anyone else planning their spring tulip displays yet?

I've used SR collections twice.  First was the venetian one and it was lovely, but didn't really fit in with the other things that were flowering about the same time. Then tried vintage silk last year - disappointing as they all flowered in succession, so didn't really ever get the full effect.  Back to diy this year I think

Snakes and hideyholes


Lovely gesture from Ob's gardening group - they"re obviously going to miss you big time.


Hope your nieces enjoy their jewellry Fidget - great idea, much better  than having them sat forever in jewellry boxes, but still keep their meaning.


My life is currently being ruled by the radio - spent 10 minutes in a layby on the way home yesterday, as I didn't trust myself to listen AND drive.  Emerged with red eyes, feeling rather sheepish


Can't get used to this weird weather we are having - very warm but cloudy ......most odd

Wyevale gone to pot!

Agree with all the above ....I thought the one I visited recently was about to close down there were so many empty stands

My favourite combo is ballade (pink with a white edge) along with white triumphator .....but this year I am thinking of trying out some purples, based around Rems favourite.


Must get my order in soon
