Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends - part 2

DD - I know only too well what it feels like to live with a bully, but for me, it was worth every penny to leave for the sake of my health and sanity, and for my two girls. Your head will take over from your heart as time goes on, and the reality of all  the practical stuff will kick in. I wish you all the luck and love in the world.

As obelixx said earlier, get the best advice you can as French law will be different - just as Scottish law is different from English. Having Charlie should make it easier for you to get help more quickly. xxx

Happy Birthday Pat - 21 again  

Have a smashing day  

Brilliant cake Lesley!

Morning all/ happy birthday Pat - hope you have lots of cake and a smashing day   

Dove - re your kiwis - you'll know when they hit puberty....

Foxes are very noisy aren't they. When we lived round the corner there was a small bit of woodland and a grassy area in front of us and they regularly had parties....

Forgot to congratulate Hosta on his weight loss. That's really is a brilliant effort. Must feel like a sprightly spring lamb now! 

LP - what a lovely present. I hope it turns out well  

Clari - your post made me laugh. (The fairy family have a similar problem with 'lady bumps'

It reminds me of the Two Ronnies joke about the bra called a sheepdog. It rounded them up and pointed them in the right direction...

I have Alabama Sunrise - it's actually a Heucherella but it does the same job 

It's greeny golden with a reddish rib

You'll need to get a camera to see what your trespasser is Joybell! 

Does the bird get bullied and ostracised by the other birds? That seems to be a common occurrence with birds that look different. 

Plant ID please

I think that might be a pink potentilla. It's slightly different to the usual ones as it's more herbaceous rather than woody. I used to have one years ago but I didn't like the colour. 

I might be totally wrong though!

A pink Geum like Totally Tangerine?

Thanks Berghill. I haven't grown geums in a very long time so I was 'totally' unaware of that

That sounds lovely Ggirl  

I might use mine for part of the fence - it's about 8 feet by 6! If not, I'll be able to use it for building something like a planter in another bit of the garden.

How big pots for clematis?

We all do it wakeshine- very few of us are immune to those tempting bargains  

It's worth giving them the right treatment though. In a couple of years when you have lots of lovely flowers on mature climbers, you'll be glad you did it 

Out of interest, what varieties did you buy? Different types require different treatment with pruning etc.

Hi Gardengirl - hope you're ok. Haven't seen you posting for a while. 

You do so much with your pallets. I think it's great. I've had building work done and I kept the giant pallet they had used. I thought of you when I was shifting it! 

What are you putting in those?
