issues when I create a message to post

Hi Frannerz and welcome

I think that using the phone may be the issue - I don't use an android but I believe that some people have had difficulties posting here which were attributed to them - can you put the photo on a photo-hosting website and post the link on here?

Going to watch re-run of Last Tango in Halifax now - see  you in the morning folks!

Can you show us a photo of the damage?

Flumpy ((hugs)) , that's what you pay your union subs for they'll know exactly how to deal with this.  So glad you're a member

KEF   I had a similar thing happen to me on the Tube years ago - someone had his hand on my buttock and was squeezing it.  I said very loudly - Unless you take your hand off my bum this instant I'll turn around and knee you in the groin!   Everyone looked at him (just as you said) and he backed off and got off at the next stop.   We have to stop being afraid to speak out.  It's not us that's doing something wrong - it's him!!!

Meringue for the Pavlova has been made and is cooling in the oven; French Vanilla ice cream will be brought home by OH; raspberries from the garden are in the freezer so I'll take them out tonight.  I've been outside to do some hoeing and weeding, but the wind is so strong I got grit in my eyes - back indoors now - I've prepped supper so I'll get the knitting out and watch Columbo

Hydrangeas trouble

Hi Artmak

It may be that they put on some lovely new tender growth in the warm spell we had in April, and then the frosts that followed have scorched them.  I wouldn't worry - they will recover.

Garden Pictures 2015

Pat - very envious of that greenhouse - the seedlings all look lush too!


What Wonky hasn't told you all is that brick paving in her second picture was laid by her!  The area between the concrete path and the patio was an overgrown area of weeds, docks, tufts of grass etc.(as was the area the other side as well).  She cleared it and after an initial demonstration by her retired builder Dad, she laid that paving!!!  It's all old radiator bricks and other stuff she dug out of the garden!!! 

insect problem

That does sound like slugs or snails - I find them hiding under pots, under the rims of seed trays etc - often very tiny slugs that just fit into tiny spaces.  Goodness knows where they come from but they lurk everywhere - lift things up and look underneath
