Forum names

I have another name for online gaming (which I do in the winter) you tube, and other forums I used to frequent, but decided that one didn't sum up what I was really about when it came to gardening.  I love daisies, anything from the genus Asteraecae.  Although my garden has other types of plants, my ambition is one day to have a garden full of the daisy family (and a few roses, delphiniums, lupins, peonies, geraniums, Daphnes, oh the list is endless!)  It's amazing what is in the daisy family, it's huge and gives flowers all year round.  OK I'll stop now!

Summer has arrived

happymarion you were in my neck of the woods yesterday! I've not been to Stone Cottage yet, shameful when it's so close! I have been to Ashwood, though. Sounds like you enjoyed it

Morning all! I believe I'm first today!! Thanks for the advice Tina and FG, I will burn it, I'll just have to be a bit careful.  Feeling a bit less guilty now   Well work this morning, and it's a lovely morning, but don't feel so bad because I've got tomorrow off and that's going to be nice too, apparently.  Hope you all have a good day.

Well morning all, bit late for me but off to work soon so been sorting a few things out.  Seems like you were all busy over the weekend, well done.  The weather was a little unhelpful here in Worcesteshire, but managed to get in the garden yesterday and attack a very overgrown border, made some progress:

 As you can see my lawn is now covered in the fruits of my labours.  And there's more to go.  Sadly I had to cut the escallonia down as it was too leggy and woody, I'm hoping it will grow back.  I'm wondering now how on earth I will get rid of this lot, if I try to burn it the neighbours will not be happy, but bagging it all up and taking it to the waste recycling centre will take a lot of that is nasty pyracantha with thorns you could use for a poison blowpipe!  Oh well, at least I rediscovered the gooseberry bush, which despite being a little straggly from trying to reach the light is still bearing a few fruits. 

Out the front things are a little more pleasing:

 At last the peonies are open!  Anyway got to go, have a good day all, take care.

New gardening programme

I agree Verdun, any gardening programme is better than none.  I watched a bit of what was presumably a repeat yesterday, it was ok, Mr T is always entertaining.

Rain.  On my day off. Surprise.


Posted: 20/06/2013 at 07:04

Morning Andy and all.  Well it's rained already here, going to try to do something else today otherwise I'll be moping around the house feeling sorry for myself.  I'm a bit like Monty, gardening keeps the blues away, I hate winter because there's so little gardening and I get so frustrated in the summer if it rains.  There's still so much to do in the garden and the year is rushing by.........

Good Evening FORKERS

Well, evening all.  FG sorry to hear about your fence woes.  And Bev, well done for going to meeting, don't let that woman bully you.  Are you in a union?  If not then join one, for goodness' sake.  And if you are, you should get a rep involved.  This Head should not be allowed to behave this way.  More importantly, you should not let her make you feel grotty.  A bully can only bully you if you let them, DON'T LET HER.
