Hello Forkers - May Edition

Probably stops a load of phone calls, texts and tweets Hosta. 


Good morning all  Grey and overcast here, but it looks quite still out there, the trees aren't moving, so if the chill northeast wind  is over it'll be a definite improvement

I loved GW too. Couldn't help thinking Monty needs a terrier to keep N&N company and sort the rabbits out. 


Now it's time for bed  Sweet dreams all ...

That single leaf looks like sycamore.


I don't think its the same as the leaves on the stump in the first photo.

Well, the leaves on the large stump in the first picture look like the common elder to me.  Can't say anything about all the other stumps.

 Clari   for years and years  my little gardening granny was a voluntary Centre Organiser for what was then the WVS (and later the WRVS).  


From its beginning at the outbreak of WW2, to her retirement in the early 1980s when she was in her 80s she organised  homes for evacuees, prams and baby clothes for unmarried mums who had little support, loans of medical equipment, hospital visits for those without transport, meals on wheels and holidays for the elderly (many of whom were younger than she was) and loads of other stuff,and was awarded the BEM by the Queen.  Brilliant organisation.  I know it's changed hugely since my granny's day, but I hope the job gives you as much fulfillment as she found with the organisation 

Pruning Apple espalier, creating 3rd tier

I'm confused at a Bramley being trained as an espalier.  I'd always understood that they're tip-bearers and as such are unsuitable for training as an espalier.

Hedge pest identification and advice required!

I think there are several different types of insects there but I can't see them clearly enough to name them - however I can't see anything that looks alarming.  I'm sure they'll provide a tasty meal for the small birds which are doubtless scouring your garden looking for food .

Right, I'm home ..... I've had a hair cut too ...... think Annie Lennox does Judi Dench ... or the other way about   and as well as getting my phone fixed I've  had a new battery fitted in my best watch, bought a new pair of comfy shoes (Hotter trainers),  eyeshadow and skin stuff from Boots and I went to the brilliant butcher on the market and bought pork chops and lamb chops for the weekend and lamb's liver for this evening's supper.  


Now I'll have a sit down for a minute or three
