In a word  Joyce - no! Forecast's dire even at this height    

Morning all/afties Pat. Hope that throat gets better soon. Worse when you have visitors coming too 

Honey   The bees would never be in any danger of me pinching it

An Asda 'special' flowers - daughter works there part time. Can't believe you've never heard of it though! We have a very good curry house near here though - they make superb pakora, and curries  

I used to make it when the girls were small and I had time to be a domestic goddess 

B3 - I have an adblocker, but I'm almost tempted to switch it off

Oooh - love a bit of lichen B3 

It's all that good clean air - unlike that polluted stuff in the south....

Did Wonks put him in a growbag Dove? ...  

I forgot to have dinner so I'm having some pakora...

I've got one of those sack barrows GD,so I'll use that. Didn't when I moved the though...

My back's wrecked anyway so I hardly notice it any more!

Just gorgeous GD. Aren't hoverflies the most beautiful insects? 

I like Centaurea - you're right - brilliant for insects. Camera's getting plenty of use too GD!  

Thank you flumpy and B3. Restful is what I need in the garden. The pots are normally at the side of the path (going left to right) flumpy -  I moved them when they were delivering my bed in case they just sent the whole lot flying. Haven't moved them back yet - they weigh a ton! 

The Etoile Violette clematis is flowering quite a bit on that fence, but it's a bit hard to see in that photo. Think I posted a pic of it recently though. The alpina growing alongside it is also flowering a little again.

DD - love to you and Charlie. Rant away as much as you need. Making you out to be the villain is all part of their thought process.   My ex had the nerve to ask me to consider letting my girls move in with their father. I would pick them up on the way to work, take them to school and do the same in reverse after work. This was after the house was already up for sale and I think we'd had viewers. Denial is a word men seem to keep in their vocabulary for a very long time. 

Apologies to all the nice men, but...  they simply don't like women making the decision that it's over....

Glad you got things sorted at MIL Wonks. I can't bear the thought of elderly people feeling vulnerable in their own home.   Hope he tries it again and gets caught on the barbed wire....  

Did I say that out loud? 

Been busy outside as the rain stayed off and it was rather pleasant. Lots of tidying, front grass cut and bark put down along the base of the hedge. Gate post put in and some daffs split up and potted. Need another shower now as I'll have to go and get fairylet and buy some food. 

Positive visualisation for the doc

doc - I talked about a Paul Simon song earlier today on the Forkers thread and how I'd left out a line that has huge personal meaning for me.

It's   #  ''some folks never catch their stars....''

Please come and catch your stars with all of us   xxx

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Nice bargain Lou.   

I've cut one lot of grass, organised the strawberries to keep the magpies off    now I need to keep the slugs off....

Removed and potted a little columbine which was dwarfed by the primulas, hacked back a geranium to give a Hebe room, potted up a Hebe seedling which was in the gravel path, chopped back a clematis ready for it's removal to another site, and generally deadheaded and pottered 

Rain's gone back off, so might get the front grass done and maybe the fence post for the gate put in.
