Can't stand Forsythia x intermedia - horrid vivid yellow loo-brushes

but Forsythia suspensa is an elegant and beautiful shrub with delicate flowers, absolutely gorgeous underplanted with spring flowers in a woodland border and seen far too seldom.  Love it.

Good morning all

Chicky - I was too to read your good news yesterday evening, so my fingers and toes have been crossed all night   So glad all went well and OH is well on track to full fitness

DD hope the upgrade's finished.

I just want to reassure anyone who's had a message from NoraGW that she is a genuine member of Daniel's team in the GW office

Of course you're involved Panda - you sausage   Think Nora's just easing herself in gently so as not to frighten us - except she has LOL

So am I Pat   Had planned to visit OH's niece  last weekend and we had to cancel 'cos of the car problem, so we'd planned to go this weekend then thought we were going to have to cancel again - so relieved we haven't got to change plans yet again

Hosta ((hugs)) well, if any injury can be said to have a silver lining it looks as if yours has - winter sun holidaying allowed/virtually compulsory, and a spring convalescence - if you'd planned it you couldn't have done better

Seriously - hope all goes well when the time comes

Hedgehog food and slug slime

The slugs here  often help clear up any crumbs the hedgehogs have left - I wonder whether the hedgehogs then come back and hoover up the slugs as they''re hoovering up their crumbs

Oooh, love fox terriers

Nut, what about Chippenham Park?   How far is that from you?  CB7 5PT  It's open in February from 12th onwards for the snowdrops which are supposed to be glorious.  

Sorry Duchess - we've rather hijacked your thread

By the way, a friend on another forum who uses Macs etc has flagged up this new scam  

He's also given details of what to do about it, so it's worth having a look if you have an iphone, ipad or mac pc.
