HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 21/08/2014 at 06:34

Good morning all 

Glad Panda had a lovely birthday - arch is gorgeous 

Woody's terrace is lovely too 

Hope all other tasks went according to plan - potting on, hem stitching, cake eating etc 

I'm off to visit son and then Aged Ps today so garden will have to look after itself - it's got to that rather dishevelled autumnal stage - think more dead-heading is called for - dentist and GP tomorrow morning - maybe I'll have time to spend in the garden at the weekend - the lawn needs cutting again as well.

Our swifts have gone, but I saw plenty of swallows and martins the other day. 

Since we moved here I know that winter is on it's way when small flocks of Whooper swans fly over heading for their preferred overwintering sites - I presume they're heading for Welney - they're heading in that direction when they go over here.

...........I  'm not keen on yellowy heucheras, I think they look ill and I agree with Fairy about the lettuce like one. But I like ordinary green ones with pink or red flowers and I like dark red ones.

I'm not usually keen on yellow leaved plants, but I had to find something that would be happy in some shade and that son could differentiate from green alkanet and other likely inhabitants of his border.  When he was a lot younger he proudly told me that he'd put the dead potato stalks on Daddy's bonfire .............. so why was it I couldn't fine the newly planted black currant plants 

If I'd got him those green ones I can quite see that he may have eaten them with some steak and vinaigrette

I love the sound of a push lawnmower being used.  And of course, Ransome lawnmowers are from just down the road from us at Ipswich
