Morning Chicky   Have a good day - just going out to do some watering 

Updating threads

Not bonkers   It varies, people do what they think best at the time. Some people update old posts, there was one recently where a poster came back after several months to show us the improvement in his laurel hedge after following advice received here, and asking some follow up questions. 


No rules here other than the ones in the 'code of conduct' (link at bottom of page). 


We're laid back and pretty flexible on here and do our best with whatever gardens and Gardeners present us with

HELLO FORKERS! July Edition

We had a lovely late afternoon and early evening lazing and reading in the garden, had supper on the terrace and we were just going to settle down to another game of chess on the terrace when there was a huge rumble of thunder - a few more and we came in to pull the windows to so that the windowsills didn't get wet ... However we've only had a light shower so far and now the sky is full of lovely low golden light .......... but ..........time for GW folks .............. 

What is your weather like?

Good news Frank 


Overcast here in Norfolk and the  temp here has dropped from 32 earlier to just above 29 in the shade just now with a breeze - a little more comfortable

OMG.....Leeches!

When we were children there was a 'horsepond' on the neighbouring farm - we would sit on the edge and dangle our legs in trying to catch leeches - sometimes we found leeches on our legs when we got out, but disappointingly they never 'sucked our blood' enough for us to notice and we never came to any harm.
