Gardening Quiz Questions

Posted: 30/11/2013 at 14:44

Hi Brian, I think the problem arose because by starting a new thread there was no way anyone knew you were responding to a query which was 5 weeks old  - unfortunately this site is targetted by Spam advertising from time to time which can really impact on the usability of the site and is very irritating - I hope you'll understand where we were coming from. 

You didn't say that you were offering material.

Today I shall tidy the house, rake some leaves, make some lists, take pie (homemade) out of the freezer for supper to make room for some Christmas baking being done later in the week - and I've got an overwhelming urge to do some drawing - first time for ages and ages - I'm finding ME again 

Is anyone listening to R2 at the moment - brilliant playlist today, Kinks, Small Faces, Amen Corner, Roy Orbison .....

Before I left I scattered foxglove seeds all over the grounds - there've never been any there before - I wonder if anyone will notice and put two and two together .........

I've just had an indulgent brekkie - grilled local bacon in a toasted cheesey roll, and a big mug of coffee - I suppose I ought to get dressed at some stage this morning - I'm feeling a bit decadent

Thought so - I planted a Black Beauty in the bed outside my window at work, but the window replacement men stomped all over it, despite my having pointed it out to them - I suppose it may survive - if someone pulls the weeds out in that bed now that I've gone!!!
