Thanks, Lily.....lovely track.

Elvis was my era.....have been known to shake my tush to this Elvis number, back in the day.  Though I feel it isn't Elvis singing on this clip.

Silver leaf disease on plum tree

Posted: 16/08/2015 at 21:47

It may be worth remembering for future reference, that plum trees should be pruned in June, pruning them when they are dormant will result in the fungus spoors entering the open cuts.

HELLO FORKERS!

Pat don't worry about David K, he is a well known Monty hater.

 

Punkdoc - The picture I posted was for its humorous content only.

For the record, I'm not a 'Monty hater'. In fact I don't 'hate' anyone, let alone anyone so remote from my daily life. True, I'm not an admirer, but hardly think that qualifies me to be labelled a 'hater'.

DavidK.   I meant 'our' in general.   

 

...sorite, Rb...I usually see  'our' as a term of endearment.

Not my Monty, Rb  ...a rather contentious issue and Mr D has been done to death hereabouts already.

Sweet peas have succumbed to powdery mildew again

Posted: 15/08/2015 at 20:54

Powdery Mildew can be kept in check by a monthly spray of  'Systhane' (available from most GCs) applied from June until the end of flowering.

Dry conditions and lack of air circulation are the main causes of mildew in SPs.

Poor air circulation is usually as a result of planting too densely. Dry conditions can be helped by watering the foliage regularly.

 This picture made me smile. Monty Don interviewing Derek Heathcote (boss of Eagle Sweet Peas) at Chelsea. It just happens that Derek can't stand Mr D.....but it doesn't show, does it?

Of course you can transfer your pics to 'photobucket' 'phtobox' or the like.....there you will able to edit them i.e. rotating them and many other things.

Doing this also simplifies transferring then here via 'the green tree'.

They were picked before they were ready, or perhaps they were mange tout.

TBH I'm not sure if the original wasn't better, inasmuch as it was possible to enlarge the whole shot by clicking on it.
