Good Evening FORKERS

Not only is the GC near and handy, it also has a re-vamped cafeteria 'under new management' serving very good ham, egg & chips, not to mention jacket potato, salad and a variety  of Cake!!!  It's rude not to go there and support them

Check the bark and see if the snails have got at it.

Well, I was looking for something to go with the deep red/black canna and the yellow bidens in a tub for the front porch.  I had bought some rusty orange gazanias, but they're not looking too good, having been bashed abot in the wind, and anyway I wasn't sure about the colour.

Wyevale (just behind our office) had some collections of plants, ostensibly for a hanging basket - but it had some plants just the right colours, oranges and scarlets.  There are also some little variegated trailing thingies, a fuchsia and some other usual hanging basket-type thingies that aren't usually the sort of thing I'm interested in - but 8 plants in all for £9.95, then reduced by 50% - think I can do something with them, don't you

Something about it says damson to me - but I don't suppose we'll know until next year - and that's only if it fruits.

Good morning Verdun  sadly it was too overcast here to see the moon - more to the point, will we see any sunshine here today?

See my boss has just taken early retirement following bad Ofsted report - how come she gets to go early with a full pension when she screwed up - I didn't screw up and I have to wait ....
