HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 09/10/2015 at 06:21

Good morning all

Hugs to all - help yourself as needed

Well, poor Wonky's electrician and plumber didn't turn up!!!  She is not best pleased Texts have been sent to landlord!  No washing machine plumbing and only the landlord's crummy cooker and not their own lovely one.   Think they'll have to find their way to the nearest laundrette this weekend to get some clothes readty to wear for work next week!  We did some sorting and finding homes for things in the kitchen and whizzed around Sainsbugs and picked up some cheap tee shirts and undies to help with the laundry situation.

I got home around nine o'clock last night, ate supper and fell asleep on the sofa - so now I'd better have a look and see what's been going on here

He's taken a while to get going - I'm going to prune him hard this spring and speak to him severely.   Do you think that firm treatment will do the trick?

You make a good point Hosta - mine's quite sprawly.

As Steve says, mine's doing well in shade under the trees providing it gets a bucket of water in dry spells.

Rescued mine from the 'Nearly Dead' section for thruppence about 18 months ago.  A bit of decent soil and some food and water and it's romping away

Bb, it's Athyricum niponicum 'Pewter Lace' - one of the Japanese Painted Ferns

Think I bought it from Notcutts.

Chrissy, it's not a tradescantia - it's a Roscoea purpurea bought from Carrie Thomas at Touchwood http://www.touchwoodplants.co.uk/aquilegias.htm

Falling leaves-loads of em.
