Hello Forkers in December

Posted: 01/12/2017 at 14:13

I'd struggle to get it down to 80 never mind 8  

chicky - it's the best port in the world - didn't you know?  

Those wee 'thingies' don't come out on my laptop - are they fairies? Gorgeous photo - glad you're clearly having such a great time  

doc - I don't know if you've seen it, but there's a lovely clip of Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, Steve Winwood and Dhani Harrison, and a few others, doing While My Guitar Gently Weeps as a George Harrison tribute with an incredible perforance by Prince. It's pretty fab. 

I hate motorbikes, and they're the bane of people's lives on that Loch Lomond road, but even I have to admit to looking admiringly at the bloke who went past me on a Harley one day recently. He was very cool 

It's got to the dizzy heights of 4 degrees here - woo hoo. Cloud is coming and bringing something with it. Hopefully the garden will thaw out soon and I can get some bark down. Had to use a large rock to break the ice this morning on the pond. I'll need to look out the polystyrene thing I created to keep a section clear.

Just had a quick read back of the end of November thread. 

After The Goldrush is easily my favourite Neil Young album doc, and one of my all time favourite albums. Far better than Harvest. He was superb in concert when I saw him a 'few' years back. A very gifted and under appreciated writer - here anyway.

Don't be out shovelling - take it easy!  

See you all later ....

How to build a pond?

Posted: 01/12/2017 at 08:02

You're right Onopordum. We inherited a large pond at the last house which hadn't been properly levelled and had a 'wing' of liner on show all along the back edge. It would have been a bridge too far to completely start again, so we had to footle around with it and alter it to have a path alongside (it was on a hill) and it worked out quite well eventually. 

Hope the new owners are enjoying it

Morning peeps - afties Pat - Happy December. Where did the year go? 

Still frosty here but the cloud is moving in.  Nice hot cup of tea going down well - the first of many  

I think we need a shivery smiley 

Keep ignoring the emails Clari - it's the way to go 

Happy 'Hosta' Birthday. Will he have cake do you think?

Glad it's going well B'man. Getting the level of fitness can take a wee while. Knees are a right pain aren't they? Mine were ok until I had about six weeks of not getting out. I'm doing a stint each night on the treadmill to keep everything ticking over in case the weather's rubbish.

I'd lend you my crampons doc - but I might just need them at the weekend if I can get out on a hill 

Quite liked Prefab Sprout but never had any of their albums.

Hope you manage it one day GWRS - although you'll need more than a day  

Where do you think you'll head to B'man? If they can keep the Glenshee road open, I may head that way.

Actaeas will also be fine there as long as the soil is reasonably moist and there's enough room to let them mature. I have some in exectly that kind of location. 

Don't be fooled by the term 'dwarf conifers'.There's an increasing number of people who sit with their lightspermanentlyon,  due to being misled by garden centres and finding that the cute little thng they bought has turned into a big monster blocking out all their light    

The prostrate, blue junipers are good though, as r'girl describes.
