HELLO FORKERS!

Dove, you understand me so well. I do love working dogs, they know their place and would I sound silly if I said I would welcome them into my home.

HELLO FORKERS!

Dove - font of wisdom always. xx

However, they know me too well for the 'seed packets spread out' line.

Thing is I drool over the affection between man & dog in 'One man & his dog'. or any working dog......just can't stand these smelly lap dogs.

Oh, and if you didn't notice, I'm a tad house-proud & fussy.

Btw, I have a outhouse or summer house that I could make available, although I would imagine that suggestion would be met with some horror.

Philippa - I can only relate what happened during their last visit to my sister's home. They reserved the guest room for my nephew and his wife, but as the rules of the home stipulate no dogs in the guest room, he slept in my sisters flat on the settee with dog alongside him....they can't stand to be parted seemingly.

So far it's never been an issue for me, as I have no friends with dogs, but truthfully I'm not keen the 'aroma'.

Can't see this subject being discussed much further without me offending someone.  Sorry!

"At the end of the day its your house, so its your rules, as long as you are upfront then i cant see a problem  "

I know that's the theory, bekkie...it's the reality that bothers me. Cos I just know it ain't going to go down well when I break the news it's a dog & cat free zone.

As some of you will already know, I‘m not normally one given to posting personal information, however, I have a (pending) problem which I would like to call on the collective wisdom of you Forkers for a possible solution.

A little while ago I decided to turn my untidy, full of junk large spare bedroom into a nice guest room. Everything was cleared to the bare floors, walls & ceiling. I spent a lot of money investing in redecoration, new carpet, double bed and all new furniture & fittings……sparkling new and now looking really nice.

The problem: My sister lives in sheltered accommodation and when her son (my nephew) and his wife visit, they either reserve the guest room at the home, or if unavailable, stay at a local hotel. Today she hinted that they will be able to stay with me in future……no problem so far cept they have dog that they are potty about and is allowed to sleep with them……absolutely no way is this going to happen at Dave’s place……Dave’s not a lap dog lover or does he intend his home being turned into a kennel.

Help!

Cornishpixie.....a grease-band won't really help as this is intended to deter the plum moth caterpillar...mildew is a different issue.

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed
and not a valuable plant is to pull on it.

If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.

Growing Sweet Peas

Wasn't around much yesterday, OL.... hence my late response. Just wanted to say what a beautiful sample of sweet peas you posted and I'm pleased you've noticed the difference with quality seed.

I would readily agree about the decrease in scent with the newer varieties,  this applies to many species of flowers that have been developed for other aspects. Fortunately there are still lots of SPs to choose from that still have lots of scent.
