How do trees come into your life?

Posted: 23/12/2014 at 14:50

Nope - I've just been around a long while, known lots of interesting people, listened to Radio 4 a lot, have an insatiable curiosity and one of those brains that just hangs onto interesting snippets of information.

Awww,what a happy picture!   and that reminds me Dd - we had the loveliest rescue dog (well, a bitch actually) GSDxLab called Hodge - she'd been the companion of an elderly lady for two and a half years until the lady passed away - Hodge was the sweetest-natured thing, and for the first three months at least she was always behind me, wherever I was, at the sink, at the ir*ning board, at the cooker etc - I got used to doing a sort of shuffle backwards before turning round so that she moved and didn't trip me up!  She was lovely

What would you do?

What a lovely little area - what my Pa would call a Spinney.  I'd go for a hedge of hazels, a wildlife pond, some ferns, foxgloves, native English bluebells, primroses, snowdrops, native daffodils (narcissus pseudonarcissus) maybe some hellebores, ragged robin .... shall I carry on .... I could keep going for ages ....

That lot would virtually look after themselves

Perhaps a Survey worth doing...

I hope Father Christmas remembers what a good boy you've been

Good morning Dd - glad you had a peaceful night!  We used to have black labs.  We had one called Jackson - the one after that was called Boss (just to let the then husband know his place )

Good morning all

OH is dreaming about turkeys at the moment Woody - the farm shop has hundreds sitting waiting in the cold store for their Forever Home!   A turkey is just for Christmas!  

They also supply turkey crowns - they come from the farm all ready prepared and packaged nicely in a box.  Last year they had someone come in after Christmas to say that when they'd opened their box on Christmas morning to put the crown in the oven, they found they had the back end of a turkey and not the front!!!  They were very understanding and had made the best of it, but how did the farmer make that mistake???  OH has checked all the boxes this year!!!
