HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 02/08/2014 at 06:36

It's just stopped!    It was really faint as the railway line is across the other side of the marshes, we don't hear the trains unless they sound their horn at the crossing, but it was just loud enough to make it feel as if my ears were ringing - weird  

Hefty Hedgehog was by the back door last night as we went to bed - I'd forgotten to take the cover off the food - a clear plastic box like the ones a joint of meat comes in from the supermarket, I put it on to keep the marauding blackbirds out of it in the evening - anyway, somehow Hefty had got the cover off himself   Glad he's got that worked out - it takes some of the responsibility off my shoulders

Good morning Woody and KEF

Light rain here - just enough to damp things down.  And some sort of alarm is going in the distance - in fact it sounds as if a railway crossing barrier is jammed down and the siren is going continually - it's only faint in the distance - but I can hear it!!! 

Congratulations Bekkie 

Clarri - I'm getting very curious indeed

Ours has a similar area, but at this time of year it usually contains  sad looking parched and dying plants

Oooh Stacey - those look fantastic 

Mine are looking quite good too - I'll have to take some pics when it's light tomorrow 

How do you tell when the Yellow Banana chillies are ripe?

I was very tempted BM - probably if I hadn't already spoken to her about it I would have done it - but n she told me it was the first present her OH bought her when they moved into that house

Just in case our neighbours have worked out who I am I shall say a Big Thank You!! on behalf of OH and myself.  They have removed that dratted wind chime from the tree just a few feet from our bedroom window.

I know I mentioned two years ago that it kept OH awake and he had to wear ear plugs, and you've only done it now (or has the chain rusted through?), but THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

Verdun ((hugs))  thinking of you and your mum. 

The others are right - your mum needs professional carers and you need time and space to live your own life, as well as to enjoy positive times with your mum rather than be her carer - I've been there

I think it's probably to do with the plants having some of the red pigment in them - I've noticed that other plants do similar things - have you noticed how purple sprouting broccoli leaves are slightly purplish?
