HELLO FORKERS! November Edition

Raisingirl - I've not seen Saving Mr Banks - I would have liked to, but tend to go to sleep in cinemas nowadays - think it's something to do with my thyroid even tho' I'm well medicated I still drop off when in the warm and dark.  I'll have to keep an eye open for it on the tv.  I did read about it when it was released and thought it sounded like a good 'un.  

Fidget - much as I'd love it, (and I really would) I don't have the acreage for a rose on that scale 

Hosta has vast acres, but not sure if he's got a site for that ...

I was hoping they'd flower next year but they probably won't now.  Never mind, I've got some seedlings elsewhere that I can transplant in the early spring.

Think Norwich's Chapelfield is enough for me - that also has Hotel Chocolat - a couple of good places to eat (Carluccio's and Café Rouge) and is just a very short wander from Norwich's fabulous market, not to mention all the little independent shops in The Lanes.  

I have never knowingly been in a Disney shop (and I've a feeling that if I had, I would know about it )

Fidget, I keep meaning to say, my Rosa glauca is a picture - covered with hips 

Care of a new Privet hedge?

Nothing to do to them at this time of year Sophie unless you want to give them a mulch of composted bark or something to smarten the area up (but they'll be fine without) - some Fish Blood and Bone in the spring will be good.  Otherwise just keep the hedgeline weeded and clear of rubbish.

Definitely not for me    strange how the name conjures up something totally different - something akin to the old Timotei advert eh?

Posy I think that the difference between this forum and others where there is often political debate, is that many of us have been here a long while, we have come to know each other pretty well, and shared hopes, fears, sorrows and happiness. When you have that sort of relationship you actually care what others think and it becomes personal, whether that's intended or not. 

That's why, if we're going to talk politics here we need to take care, read through what we've written before posting, and try to see things through the eyes of others who may have different views and different life experiences.

if someone wants more robust debate there are political forums where that is what is expected.
