HELLO FORKERS!

Oh yes- always acknowledge Mr Magpie lily...but just because he's a friendly bird - no other reason...

Don't know the passing on the stairs one though. You'll have to enlighten me

Lovely pix everyone. Really enjoying these landscapes. I have loads on a disc from old computer so I'll have to have a look for them 

Nikki - I had a photo of an inversion but it's on that disc. Ben Lui from the top of Bheinn Dorain - the cloud at the top just cleared as we got there. Sheer chance and really beautiful.

Found this - can't remember where it is though  Point and shoot from half way up somewhere!

Forgot to do white rabbits - but hey - I'm not superstitious anyway. I keep my rabbit's foot and  lucky white heather tucked safely away. And I moved the ladder so I don't have to walk under it when I go to the car.

Woody - you have to go and see someone about your 'weather/season' denial...

It's a big job Lyn- hope you've been eating your porridge and spinach! 

Very satisfying when you get it all completed though. Did you have a chipper for the conifers? It would have been some good recycling! We did that with a huge fir tree at last house which was in a seriously bad place.

I'm seriously considering ripping out the rhododendron at the front door which was here when I moved in. I'd like some gold/yellow planting at the front and it just doesn't fit. It's very mature though and the new growth is coppery so I'm not sure. Got enough to do anyway!

Grockle- that's a good word. What does it mean - nosy parkers? 

Serious stuff......no! Really

What age are you Corny? We're all very young here really 

Only 27 myself...or am I 28 now since I've just had a birthday ..

I used to cry at Lassie...

 

compost use

Diane - it's mental isn't it!

James - peat is reckoned to be the best growing medium, but because of the issues surrounding it's use,  the peat free stuff is now the most widely used. We had a thread on here earlier this year though, and many people had issues with the quality of most of the peat free stuff available.

Late this morning. That's what I get for staying awake till daughter was in from her party 

I'll no doubt fall asleep at about 8 tonight!

Supposed to be a decent day here so might get something done outside. Yesterday was horrendous in the afternoon. 

will try and catch up on all the chat on here now

I've always left loo rolls  too but after the way the purchaser behaved when seeling my last house I wish I'd taken an awful lot more than I did! 

Someone told me they bought a h ouse which had a new fence round it and it really suited them because they had a new dog..... when they moved in - guess what the previous owners had taken....

Welshonion- your son should have pursued that one - a loft ladder's surely a fixture!

Lovely weather we had here earlier- lightning, torrential rain and hail. Great! 

Glad I have my heating working - hope you get yours sorted BL.

Punkdoc- I love Ligularias too. I bought Britt Marie Crawford last year and although it didn't do much then,  it flowered like mad this year and was covered in bees. The foliage is terrific but , yes the slugs and snails love it. I've got it into it's new raised bed and put plenty of grit round it to keep them away.
