HELLO FORKERS April 2016 Edition

Scaffolding Panda....I know the problem....we get ours from Clyde shipbuilders in this family  

Glad mr chicky's on the mend - what a relief 

Got my walk - glad I went - snow forecast for most areas tomorrow so visibility would have been poor.  Smashing day with great 360 degree views. I'm showered and I've had a cuppa, so all's well with my world 

I've instantly forgotten everything else I've read, so apologies to you all  

Camera Talk

It was a nice wind free, flat summit lily - not always easy to keep the camera upright when you try it, and not always a suitable place to put it either! 

I'm getting the hang of the timer now - I had to take quite a few though

Bumping up for Hefty and the lovely bee 

Some pics of a bee chilling on a twig :)

Great pic Hefty, lovely when they stay still long enough isn't it?  Put it on David's camera thread  - Camera Talk, or on the Garden Pic thread 

I'll find them and bump them up for you if I can

They need decent night time temperatures or they'll just stall rosemummy. If they're still small plants, I'd follow Ceres' advice for a while yet, especially if you intend growing them outdoors eventually and not in a greenhouse.

Morning all/ afties Pat - love the skink pic 

You sound much better Wonks. Cheeky swan...and a dunker as well...what's the world coming to....

Weather forecast right up to last night was better for tomorrow than today, so made my decision to walk tomorrow instead. It's all changed overnight.   Trying to decide if it's worth heading off now. 

What a pain re the ticket David - especially after your heroic efforts. Mine stayed on my licence for four years I think. Is it £100 pounds now? 

Quick look round while I decide what to do. Have a good day everyone

A quick hello and goodbye. Hope those who couldn't sleep can get a catch up later. Wonder if Hosta slept any better 

You sound a bit better today Wonks. Hope you're on the mend too Panda. I quite like the oil of cloves taste 

I spent a very long time in old clothes sanding, plastering, painting etc with several houses so I know how demoralising it can be, until suddenly you're putting furniture back in and putting pictures on the walls and all the grafting gets forgotten! Hope it all works out before the arrival Yvie, although a baby won't notice! 

Better go - have a grand day everyone 


Stopping squirrels

Chicken wire or netting over the containers at planting time is the only way to stop them. They'll tend to go for smaller bulbs, but don't usually dig deep enough for things like daffs which will be lower down. 

If you listen to the Archers ....

As long as you both support each other you'll get there MrJ. Those 'Chinese whispers' are always a problem. Glad you got that sorted. 

And you have that lovely bank vole to keep you enthralled 

Security/Wildlife Hedging

But just remember Sam - you're putting in a gate. The intruders will simply scale that. It's the weak point, so you'll have to make sure it's very secure, and you can only do that when you're on the inside of it.
