HELLO FORKERS! June Edition

Just been to exercise my democratic right - in torrential rain, accompanied by flashes of lightning and rumblings of thunder.  Matched my mood ....feel like I am watching all the wrong sort of history being made and it is scaring me it witless.


Lets hope the sun'll come out tomorrow

So sorry here too DD.  Stay strong.  And really hope you find a way of staying in touch .....you were my soulmate in dark days, and your optimism taught me a lot, so thank you.  You'll find a way through this, and our thoughts will be with you as you do. Xx

Morning all - rise and shine πŸŒ„πŸŒ„πŸŒ„


You'll all need to shine extra hard, as the sun seems a bit shy here this morning


Littlest Chicklet back at college now, so early morning service resumes.


Hope those on that long sofa are all feeling a bit better today πŸ€’πŸ€’πŸ€’

Any ideas what this is?

Horrible stuff. I'm not usually one for chemicals, but in this case glyphosphate is probably the best way forward, before you start planting anything you want to save.

Evening all


Back on train again πŸš‚πŸš‚πŸš‚ but heading home this time.  People-watching was rubbish on the way up - regular commuters comparing car insurance pricesπŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€.  Hoping for better on the way home - and this time I have a window seat- so conducive to garden spottingπŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

Like Krissy, we can't keep the mice out of ours - try balancing the seed trays on upturned pots, so that there is a bit of an overhang - think "saddle stones" - mice can climb up verticals, but can't manage upside down.


or you can go all Heath Robinson and create a mouse baffler
