Bushman - glad you're getting sorted ((hugs))

Yvie, that's gorgeous 

Hosta   you'll have to get another cleaner ... you'll never manage to keep it up to OH's standards! 

P'doc - used to love putting our cozzies on and getting Pa to spray us with the hosepipe on hot summer days 

Had been expecting a visitor for coffee, but she's just rung to say she's got to go to her father's care home as he's unwell - so I'll get on with some other jobs this morning .......... when I've drunk this coffee

@Fairy " Apparently they're more than just chums anyway," Ooooh, are they?

Can't say I had noticed the touchy feely stuff...but I will now!!

See original post

 Don't think so ... thought it was common knowledge that Mark Foster and Colin Jackson have been together for yonks and yonks. 

Think the press are manipulating all this 'cos they're desperate to 'out' Colin Jackson, but he's always preferred to keep his private life private ... but it's said that they live together.

Now RA and MF are talking about this gossip and having been good friends for years.  That's all

Birds clearing the gutters?

Daisy, we have house sparrows here, but nationally the numbers have declined hugely. They are on the RSPB Red List! It's thought to be due largely to a reduction in suitable nest sites due to a change in building techniques and roofing materials. Their favourite nesting spots are in the gaps under old fashioned pantiles. 

Autocorrect keeps trying to change that to 'panties'

That sounds like dog lichen or one of the liverworts.

I also think that you have to be prepared to do some pruning, removing forward pointing shoots, rather as you would train a fruit tree against a wall. 

How do I keep a Hydrangea white

That may have been due to climatic conditions. 

Do you know the name of the variety?

Good morning all 

Im still in bed waiting for another coffee 

It looks like another lovely day - think we'll have to put the seep hose on the Shady Bank again. 

Asparagus...what now..

The foliage should be cut back when it starts to turn yellow. 

as for the ones that didn't grow - when did you plant them and who did you get them from?

Dewdrops - so sorry to hear of your loss. Our sympathy to your family. 

Night night all ((hugs))
