Foxglove ?

Posted: 15/08/2014 at 12:25

They'll do it themselves, but you may find they spread themselves a bit thickly, so when the seedpods are dry and beginning to open I cut the spike off and swish it around the beds and borders where I want more foxgloves.

Sorry, you'll have to make do with a cold sausage sarnie - Picnic Pie is for the foodies' picnic on Sunday - I've just got to trust that it's cooked through and doesn't have a soggy bottom

Yvie  - I don't think it was so much that people were taken in - think it was more that he needed friends but didn't know how to be one 

Rain just began to spit so I've got the washing in - it's still a bit damp so I'll drape it upstairs in the third bedroom which room we use as an office.

The pie is cooked and is cooling.  When I've draped the washing I'll make the cake ....

Are talking about pelargonium-type geraniums?  If so, I'd take them indoors onto windowsills.

I've flagged up the multiple posts to the Mods - they're the only ones that can do anything.  Hope we can all reply on one thread, otherwise there's a potential for chaos! 

Flippin' pigeons

Not the weight of these pigeons - I'm fattening them for a pie - they finish up the hedgehogs' leftovers each morning

Morning Pdoc and everyone else 

We were kind to someone .... no need for anyone to apologise for anything, whatever happened after that 

Sorry to hear about dentist - I've been pretty lucky with my teeth (so far - fingers crossed) but son has odd teeth and they keep trying to charge him an arm and a leg to put right stuff they did wrong in his teens!  He really suffers with them

I've bought some of those little windmills on sticks that you get at the seaside and dotted them amongst my brassicas - they seem to be deterring the pigeons at the moment
