Are you using a laptop or tablet?

Morning Snoodle! 

Yes, pond full to bursting and everything decidedly soggy - I'm blaming cousins for bringing it with them!

Good morning all  

Didn't get back until teatime yesterday, then cousins arrived from Wales and we chatted and went for a meal at the local pub, chatted some more then went to bed. 

Now I'm wide awake and drnking coffee but the rest of the house is sound asleep. 

I've got some reading back to do, but in the meanwhile ((hugs)) to any who need them

Have a good day

........  Perhaps that is just how the worman looks/speaks. Some people are just rude in general.

Yes, some people don't have a ready smile, just like some people on forums (I always want to say fora) don't or won't use emoticons to indicate the tone of voice, then their posts can 'sound' snappy and unkind. 

So often on a forum it's not what you say, it's the way that you say it.

Persistent Weed

It's one of the few things I use glyphosate on - a few squirts early in the season when it appears in the veg patch - it's keeping it under control.

Maybe someone had complained about the price earlier and left them at the counter and she'd had to get them returned to where they came from .............. but still totally unacceptable behaviour, and not good business practice on the GC's behalf anyway - if she'd made any comment at all it should have been to remark on what good value they were!

I think I'd let the management know that some Customer Service training is required before they start losing customers

Short flowering season for my buddleja's

Posted: 26/08/2015 at 06:30

Mine  (Miss Ruby) has been flowering for a good while now and is doing well with regular deadheading - it's also had the benefit of clematis food being applied to that area of the garden earlier in the summer, and a couple of doses of tomato feed being watered on nearby lupins etc.

Shall we pool our piggy banks?

Or shall we stick with our seed swap?
