Hello Forkers - May Edition

Well, I didn't get to tennis this morning ......... OH and I went to B&Q to buy some timber first, giving me plenty of time to get to tennis afterwards ... but we reckoned without a B&Q assistant's migraine which somehow caused her to make various mistakes which had to be rectified with the help of a manager who was unavailable for quite some time ... the poor girl did look very ill and I said that maybe she'd be better off resting, but she said she'd already had the two sick days that she's allowed this year!!!???

Too hot for a bra Topbird! ? Thank goodness we don't get that sort of weather up here ... don't want to trip over 

PP good to see you   I have plans to edit a pair of jeans in a similar way to your beauties ... it's either that or get my toes tangled in the frayed hems 

Unknown grass?

Terrorists only win if we allow ourselves to be terrorised.  If we continue to look for the best in everyone and reach out to all in need, no matter who they are, where they come from or what they believe, goodness prevails and we are the winners.

It shouldn't be in flower until mid to late summer, so it's been brought on early for the consumer market. I'd cut the flowerheads off and let it concentrate on making good roots without having to try and support the flower. 


See original post

 Good point HC

Hello all :-)

Topbird the birdsong started very early this morning ... Think today may be a muggy one ... Tennis may be a tad sticky

The only times I've seen anything like that it's been due to weed killer damage. Is it possible that a contaminated watering can or sprayer has been used on your roses?

It's early for hydrangeas to be in flower so I expect it has been 'forced' by being grown in sheltered conditions and planting it out has, as you say, been a shock 

As long as you look after it there's no reason why it won't survive and bloom for you next year. Don't cut the fading flower heads off until next spring - they often change to lovely faded colours through the summer and autumn and protect the next years buds through the winter. 

Is my bay tree dead? Please help!

It's worth doing as Jess suggests. Good luck and let us know how you get on.
