Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 24/08/2013 at 19:34



 Here is one I made earlier - only this time I made the nectarine slices radiate outwards like a catherine wheel, with raspberries in between them. 

It's based on this one but I've added raspberries and prettified it.

Nectarine and Raspberry cake made and cooling - it took ages 'cos I'd run out of baking powder and had to wait for OH to bring some home from work with him 

It's just about stopped raining now - it's very muggy - we've opened all the windows - I suppose Ive not helped cool the house down by baking cakes and making Chicken Mukhani.  Ready in about 45 mins. 

FG - that's made a big difference

When we moved here the fences were rotten and broken - we found hedgehogs visiting every evening and hibernating.  When we had the fences renewed we cut a small archway in the bottom of the fence in the corner which seemed to be the hedgehogs' favourite area and we know that they use the 'Hedgehog Gate' to travel from our garden to our neighbours'.   However, if you don't currently have visiting hedgehogs it might be harder for them to find you if there's just one way in.

Have you looked at this site?

I'm sure you'll get lots of helpful information there

If they're ready to ripen stop feeding them - they don't need to grow any more they need to concentrate on ripening.

I watched last night - I really didn't notice any music until the end when there was a few seconds of Nigel.

The seven leaf rose, is it a sucker?

Posted: 24/08/2013 at 16:36

If it doesn't come from the base of the plant it's not going to be a sucker.

 Although the majority of modern-type roses have only 5 leaflets, Old-type roses, ramblers and specie roses have more.  

Sadly lots of people have destroyed lovely roses because of the mistaken dictum that 'if it has more than 5 leaflets it's no good'.
