HELLO FORKERS!

Yay!  Good luck Panda!

I'm back from shops.  I went in the car in the end 'cos I remembered we needed loo rolls and there's no way I'd get them in the bike basket along with the other shopping.

Now the desiccated coconut is soaking in the coconut milk - it has to soak for a couple of hours so I'll find something else to do for a while.

I've been researching Crataegus recently, and there are many with un-lobed leaves.

Have a look here http://www.crown-nursery.co.uk/products/ornamental-and-native-trees/a-e/#C

You'll need to scroll down a bit.  Crataegus x lavallei looks a definite possibility

Chaenomeles - black spot?

I'd clear them up when they fall and burn them - otherwise I wouldn't worry

SGL - yes, coconut and chocolate - I've not made it before 'cos I don't like desiccated coconut and OH isn't keen on chocolate cake - but I think the Moving Volunteers will like it and I won't be tempted to eat it

It's a River Cottage recipe, I can't find it online, but this blog has an adaptation of it that looks good https://annauk1.wordpress.com/2011/05/27/river-cottage-bounty-bar-cake/

Just going to the shops on my bike to pick up the coconut .......

No Pat, it's not emails  (I've got a very good spam filter) - we sometimes get spam posts on the forum from advertisers which we flag up to the Moderators for removal.  It looks as if they've searched the web for sites which talk about bedding etc, and decided that this one is appropriate for their adverts of Mahogany bedroom furniture so they posted a thread

The Mods have been alerted.

I agree, in theory cut it back before flowering - but the bees love the flowers so I wait until they've finished with it.

A handful of leaves in a mug of boiling water, steeped then strained and with a teaspoon of honey makes a lovely soothing bedtime drink

Pat, do I remember that you're a Pavarotti fan?  I don't know whether you have access to BBC Radio 2, but tonight at 8pm UK time there's a wonderful programme - maybe your hubby can record it somehow for you? http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b06cxyyg
