HELLO FORKERS!

The best detox I know is just to cut out carbs and drink lots of water - I feel great when I do that and lose weight too.  The problem is that OH hasn't got any weight to lose so I have to feed him carbs .... it's just not fair

Hi everyone

Hello Clarice - good to see you again - so sorry to hear about your stepson - you and your family have my sincere condolences.

We're doing our annual New Year's Day flower count of everything that's blooming in our gardens - it would be lovely if you could join in

Happy New Year

Killing weeds - coal ash?

Hello Mrs Bogs and Happy New Year to you too

Your spot sounds idyllic - isn't it a shame that conditions that are ideal for garden plants are also favourable for weeds

In years gone by garden paths were frequently topped up with sieved cinders from coke fired stoves.  However, I think that ash would, as you say, become a watery gunge. 

Happy New Year Everyone

 It's been a testing year in the garden and now the weather is making life grim for many.  Some have also had personal difficulties to cope with.

Let's look forward to 2016 - may it be a peaceful and happy one for all of us   and best wishes especially to the website team who are working on the upgrade - hope all goes according to plan

Fish pie made, veggies prepped, heating on, wine in fridge, Miss Marple on the tv and knitting at hand ....... now just waiting for OH to come home

Topbird ((hugs))

Hosta and OH - have a fab holiday

Turning chilly here now - I think I'll put the heating on now that I'm sitting down.  I've made the fish pie filling, just got to cook and mash the tatties ...

Pauline - think you deserve a gold star

Plants think it's Spring

It's not just the plants - we have a pair of totally smitten wood pigeons trying to do unprintable things together whilst balancing on the trellis on top of our fence  

Every time I do the washing up there they are .............. again

Roses advice

Percy Thrower used to say prune hybrid tea roses in early March.  That's roughly when I do it - give or take a week or so either way.

New Year's Day 2016 Flower Count

Posted: 31/12/2015 at 15:25

As far as I'm concerned one flower is a flower.  That's how I've always counted them.

I don't think I've got as many flowers blooming this New Year as last - but that's partly due to the fact that we don't have any tubs of winter pansies/violas etc.
