HELLO FORKERS May 2016 Edition

Posted: 09/05/2016 at 07:53

Morning all/afties Pat. Glorious day here but work beckons. Still, it means the outdoor building work can crack on and less damage to the grass. 

That's terrible news BL - and horrible that you heard it on your open day, which must have made it more stressful for you. Sending a big hug from the Fairies.

An unpleasant memory for you too Keen. So hard to accept something so unexpected. Not surprised you still have a vivid recall of it. 

Lovely auricula chicky. It would make me smile too. I'll have to enjoy everyone else's pix just now until the team sort out the photo problem!  My snow bunting photos from Saturday have turned out well so I'll share them as soon as I can post them.

Hope all goes well today Dove. It's a difficult thing to do. I remember my sister saying that she reckoned all the organising and planning you have to do for a funeral is a ploy to help deal with the grief. She might be right. 

Quick look round now before I go to t'mill. 

Have a good day everyone

What is this Clematis

Richard - this is a problem a few people are having with the new forum. Ironically, I can see everyone else's pix but can't post any of my own!

I think someone else had the same issue and has let the tech team know, but you could report it on the thread entitled 'Your new-look forum' to make sure. Daniel has been helping everyone today and the issues and glitches are being addressed.

LeadF - I can't post photos at all now! I flagged it up with Daniel today and he told me to fill in the online form on the supportdetails .com site. If you take a look on the thread 'Your new-look forum' you'll see an image of what it looks like in his reply to me earlier today  

1st one is a tree peony Gd. 2nd is a Brugmansia (I think) and the last one is a Cistus - don't know th evariety though.

Don't recognise the 3rd. If you can post it on a separate thread someone will know  

How do you get into your borders?

My wings allow me to hover...

I just look for a little bare spot....not always successfully  

A few strategically placed bricks or little pieces of spare paving might be useful.

Might have to lend Dove these....

What is this Clematis

Try just typing in Clematis Columbine. That will bring up some photos and you can make a bit of a comparison that way.

The alpina varieties are very pretty. I have Constance which has lovely deep pinky/violet flowers. The seed heads are gorgeous too.
