Hello Forkers - February 2017 Edition

This morning they said we'd get winds of 30 a 40 mph. Now they're saying 70 - 80 mph in about an hour.


I don't remember winds this strong or noisy since waking up in the middle of the 87 hurricane. We were cut off and without electricity for around a week back then.

That's naughty of them Flowers   I'm sure we all understand that their job is fraught with difficulties today, but they're not being paid to drive around the countryside just looking at bins.


Our bin men have been really conscientious  today - I was pleasantly surprised to see them taking as much care as they could to stop bins and rubbish blowing about.

Snow! Help!

Glad that's helped ... and if you're going to enjoy your gardening you'll have to adopt my mantra


Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,  Energy to change the things I can,


And the wisdom to ask the Gardener's World Forum Members when I need to know the difference

Back from W'rose with tea bags and other useful items. 


It's our recycling bin day - I'm keeping an eye on ours in case it looks like blowing over - but the lorry's only just down the road - shouldn't be long.


There's a big tree been blown across the A47 near here and our lights keep going on and off - I was going to do some baking, but it's probably not a good idea if the leccy might go off ........


I shall get on with the knitting .........

Snow! Help!

When Doris has passed over, post a pic of your cherry tree and we'll be able to tell you if it needs a bigger container.

It's in a container as I want to be able to take it with me when I move plus only just purchased it. There's a small bit of green on one raspberry cane  and the spring bulbs are just about to flower I seen a small amount of colour on a few 😣 Are they ruined? 


See original post

 Not ruined - Ma always said that winter isn't over until we've had a 'Daffy Snow' - i.e. snowfall just as the daffodils are coming into flower ... sometimes in April.  We'd never have any spring flowers if they succumbed to snow.


The raspberries will be fine.  Honestly ((hugs))  Put the kettle on and have a coffee and a dance around to the radio - it's that sort of day.
