Is this site slow and clunky this evening?

Think it's just me that's slow and clunky B3....

Canna lilies

I got someone very confused once Hosta - I thought they meant Calla lilies when they meant Cannas, because they said Canna lilies  

Perhaps Anne could clarify which it is!

Oh how weird - just read Hazel's post re Mary Poppins and Simon Mayo's playing Julie Andrews singing My Favourite Things on the radio!  

Yvie - I'm surprised that pic isn't sideways if you're on the vino.... 

Hope you're haivng a great time 

DD - fantastic. Just fantastic xxx

chicky - my friend's sister is on her way back from Reading too. I think her 'stuff' will be in quarantine too!

No Bank Hol up here and we work them anyway, but I'm off next week - hurray! 

Clematis Avalanche

Short of water Dave. Not uncommon but easily fixed  

Give it a really thorough soaking and a mulch. It should recover no problem. It's an early flowering variety so dry summer weather in that aspect is not ideal for it. Don't let it get dried out  and it should be fine.

We get them here regularly too. Even when it's cloudy and you can't see them - you can hear them. They hang around the little NT garden and the fields nearby and often drift over. The crows get very hacked off with them. They're a really common sight along the bypass too, which cuts through farmland. There's usually one or two there sitting on the lamp posts when I leave work  

Thank you

It's nice to be able to help someone - even if only in a tiny way, but it's even  nicer when someone takes the time to post such a lovely message. Everyone who helps regularly here will be delighted 

Thank you Sizeyuk and Anna.

Hazel -- says:

My mother even keeps the carrier bags from the Fish and  Chip shop ( plus the smell as well!) !

See original post


Hazel - you need a well aimed, lit match.....

I just don't keep 'stuff'. I have very little 'stuff'. I'm a champion thrower outer. Lots of house moves in a short space of time makes you focus.

Having had to clear my parents' house, including the original kitchen in the house, which my Dad kept in the loft, I'm making life easy for my two when I go. Hope they appreciate it...

Morning all/afties Pat - you'll be needing your firewood  

Beautiful here too - pity I have to work 

Hope chicky is getting a bit of a lie in now. 

obelixx - I suppose we don't like to wrap them in cotton wool but....I'd do exactly the same as you and chicky. Could never forgive myself if I was  sitting here and something dreadful could be avoidedif I just got in the car.... 

Glad you're getting a bit of a rest today after the 'sorting'. It's hard graft. 

Quick look round before I head out - have a good day everyone
