Hello Forkers in December

Posted: 08/12/2017 at 14:20

Obelixx ... many years ago when I was a newly-wed in a new bungalow we had a lovely neighbour who had 'retired to the country' from Wimbledon ... several of her former neighbours and friends had also moved onto the same estate in a small market town in Suffolk. 

Over the garden fence she told me how she and her late husband had loved to dance all their courtship and married life,  and she and all her friends still danced and had started a new dance club now they'd moved to Suffolk. 

One day she invited me into her bedroom and opened the large fitted wardrobe doors .......... an explosion of multi-coloured chiffon, tulle sequins and net burst out into the room ... she had so many amazing frocks  .... that was the 'Come Dancing' era 

I need help with my research!

Hi Jennifer

This website and forum is UK based and has only one or two contributors from the USA  so is probably not the most useful source of information for you.

Good luck with your studies.

We've got C. hederifolium with corms the size of dinner plates and they flower profusely ... perhaps it depends on the variety?

Good morning all 

I'm not sure that the best decisions are made when people have been up all night .... oh well, we shall see what we shall see ...

Hope everyone's had a good night and that the weathers not too grim up north ((hugs)). 

Big bowls of porridge will help

Seeds in the compost, in the air and on the breeze. They'll manage to spread somehow
