I know MrsG- I'm hoping I can get rid of both of them now that they're both of legal age - the man round the corner has three sons of varying ages...

I don't mean it really...better go and take her to school now

I've just watched some of that programme Gilly but I thought it was mainly honey bees that were infected. Will  watch it again. There's been lots of posts here recently about 'sleepy' looking bees beside or on different plants. Hope this isn't the effects of these damn chemical pesticides kicking in.

Thanks chick 

I'm hoping if I keep quiet about it from now on Gilly he won't know...I'm sure he doesn't like chocolate cake much anyway...

Hi Janet! We all make mistakes - it's a big learning curve with plants isn't it. I posted on a thread yesterday saying how sorry I felt for anyone who'd just started gardening in the last couple of years because the weather's been so erratic which makes it even harder! Improving a space to suit your own needs is very satisfying. 

There's so many helpful people on here with great experience and I've personally learnt a huge amount in the few months since I joined. Lots of kind and funny ones too and we enjoy a laugh as well as sharing knowledge and tips.

Morning all. Cool but  to warm up later. Only 10 degrees when I took the bins out earlier.

My Mum  used to say that too Gilly, although I htink she said waistcoat. Didn't think sailors were that sartorial....

Maybe that's what blackest needs- a nice waistcoat or two! Chuck half of it out blackest  - think of the extra space you'll have!

I'll be slaving  over a hot oven today making younger daughter's birthday cake -16years young. Not sure how I managed that since I'm only 27. 

Garden has that dewy Autumnal look now. My Daniel Deronda clematis is flowering and goes very well with the Cupani sweet peas in the pot in front of it. Might take a pic of it. Very pretty colour.

Have a good day all - no Bank Hol here so hope everyone has good weather if they're off anywhere.

They're normallly used in fish tanks to keep the water aerated Haisie. Good luck with the pond and keep us updated with pix if you can.

Grub I'm sure you can glue them. There's lots of sites which specialise in ponds and pond accessories so you'd probably find something there. Bradshaw's is one I can think of -they'll have a specialist glue I'm sure. The slope won't be an issue - just make sure when you get the level sorted that you have no liner showing. It's worth taking time over as it can be a real pain to sort later on as we found at last house!

wb- that made me laugh out loud!

Perhaps we could have a range of Chris Beardshaw ones as well. 

Good Evening FORKERS

Just been reading morning thread- well done to young chicklet, chicky! Always a relief when it comes good isn't it?
