HELLO FORKERS March 2016 edition

Well, I've given the honeysuckles a good cutting back and I've stood and stared at the corner where the tree was trying to work out how we're going to re-design it.  Still haven't completely made up my mind - think I need OH out there with me, on the other end of a tape measure

Poor Flatters   Because in essence he's a stray who set up home in Wonky's shed, he has a life that she doesn't know about.  She's taken him to the vet to be treated for abscesses and paid for his medication, he's had him neutered and pays for his jabs and worming, and she feeds him twice a day and has given him a lovely snug 'Cat Cave' in the shed and she takes her cat Harrie out into the garden to play with him every if the weather is fine, but what does he get up to when the rest of the world is at work or asleep at night?

exochorda might fit the bill too. Or Spirarea Snowmound.

Gabion walls for sound-proofing garden

Posted: 11/03/2016 at 13:51

I've worked in music venues, concert halls etc and a family member is a sound engineer - to absorb and deaden sound you need soft materials (like the bark suggested by Obelixx).

Hard materials, like brick and stone, will bounce sound around and make things worse. 

What is your weather like?

Snap! Verdun - I've just been cutting back a couple of honeysuckles too.  But it's clouded over and turned chilly out there - my hands are burning now that I've come indoors Brrrrrrrrrr!

1960s 1970s inspired bouquet

Princess Margaret's wedding bouquet (1960) was white orchids and stephanotis.

Princess Alexandra's (1963) carried freesias, narcissi, stephanotis and lilies of the valley.

Oh dear BL ((hugs))

I've just spoken to Wonky - Flatters the Shed Cat isn't well - she thought he'd been refusing to come out of the Cat Cave in the shed since Monday because the weather was so grim, but she got home in daylight yesterday and insisted that he came out of the shed into the garden, but he growled at her and limped on his right side when he walked.  She phoned the vet and he has an appointment for 6.15 tonight.  She said he's still eating and his eyes are bright, but he's really scowly and cross.  She's wondering whether he's been hit by a car ........

I got married in 1970 - I really really wanted a bouquet like the one I'd seen in a bridal magazine, simple, elegant, stylish


 No one else liked it and I ended up with freesias ......
