A Day Out

We have to remember that this forum is VERY PUBLIC  and there can be people on here who actually never post but just lurk.  Some lurk in a good way, just reading and enjoying, but from time to time there are a few lurkers who like to complain, cause problems etc.  There have also been malevolent posters in the past who have used personal knowledge found on here to harass and intimidate perfectly innocent gardening folk.  Do be careful about posting too much info about where you live, your planned activities, or personal email addresses, workplaces etc, and even be a bit wary about PMs - it's a shame, but better safe than sorry.

However, you can trust me ......................

Pruning Mulberry trees

The black mulberry that I'm fond of isn't in my garden - it's in an enclosed courtyard, called The Garth at Blackfriars, part of Norwich School of Art.  Many a sandwich lunch has been eaten under that tree by happy art students.  The Garth is roughly the size of a lawn tennis court.  

Some people have fairies at....

.......... my OH's brother in Rosselare designs the electronics for those machines - they are indeed gigantic.  Bit like the one Ed Grundy broke the other night.


Aw, I felt so sorry for him 

sacrilege or what?

I like them both too - I've a feeling that the confectionery programme is aimed and parents and children, whereas they think that no one under 100 watches gardening programmes.  

But at least nowadays most of us can either record our favourite programmes or watch on iPlayer or whatever - I suspect that the programmers will use that as an argument to support changes in programme times.  

However, thinking about it - we could use that argument to suggest that on the weeks when there is no GW because of sport or something, they could still produce and broadcast that week's programme in the middle of the night and we could watch it when we choose to.

We might have them hoisted with their own petard!
