Hello Forkers ... September edition

Posted: 19/09/2017 at 08:50

Hello all who've arrived since I popped in.  

Washing in machine as we're promised a dry day ... next job is to sort out the airing cupboard   then I shall go to Dunelm ... we need some more cushion pads ... these are getting a bit flat and if more sofa naps are likely to happen we need to be comfy ...

Weve had more rain overnight but it seems to be drying out now ...

I think unplanned sofa-naps must be contagious ... Probably one of those internet bugs

I've just spoken to Wonky ... her hand is certainly much improved. and she said her boss was very understanding and has told her to keep her informed about how her hands are and what affects them.  She has a short week this week as it is her SiL's funeral on Friday.  

Can someone identify the shrub

Fairy   glad you've worked out what the problem was ... best not do that again!  

help name this rose

It has a lot of similarities to Etoile d'Hollande  ... but there are quite a few that look like that ... and yours looks to have strong stems and holds the blooms erect whereas Etoile d'Hollande is known for being weak necked.

lawn scarification?

Posted: 18/09/2017 at 18:51

This is what our lawn looked like last September after a thorough going over with the electric rake and then scarifying.  We then sprinkled some grass seed over the lawn on a day when rain was forecast. We did nothing else 

This is  the only photo I have of what it looked like this May, but you can see that it looks fine.  I like the daisies so I let them be.
