Never watched bakeoff before - got bullied into it by the chicklets. Really enjoyed it ....its just like allotment challenge, says I, to hoots of derision

Lovely logs LilyP.  Mr Chicky is slightly obsessed with them too.  We even have special wrapping paper with a log pattern for all his gifts.

Back many pages .....I am a little bit concerned that I might be an even bigger nosey parker than Verdun's neighbour .....if the criteria is asking about plant names, then I'm definitely well on the way

Help needed!

I'm a big fan of the Forum as it is - doesn't need major changes in my view.

However, it would be great to see the major glitches fixed - particularly when posting on a phone.

And the quote and search facilities could be easier and more reliable to use.  

But don't change the "look and feel" looks and feels just right

Feeling very sad for Mr Hosta.  Sending ((hugs)), and hope it gets resolved soon.  Families can easily take you for granted - you'd not have any friends left to invite to a surprise party if you treated them all like that.

Glad you had a good time at MiLs Dove - did niece accompany you back?  Thanks for your advice on the knapweed - a purchase has been made (It was the "thrives on neglect" bit that clinched it).

our lovely NDN (she of the watering the plants superbly fame) is a teacher at that school Hosta.  

On a keep fit kick - have cycled 65 miles since Saturday ......and all after work/gardening/taxi duties in the day.  Feeling a bit creaky now

Morning all -another day dawns, and I can see blue sky

Popped into a GC at lunchtime and was tempted by something called a scabious centaurea - looked like a cross between the two.  Has anyone grown it?  Had lovely tall, wavy flowers like a centaurea montana, but held on scabious like stalks.  As I have heard others say .....I have just the spot
