A sycamore rant

Posted: 24/06/2013 at 13:36

Lindsay I'd have to agree with fidget. I had a fairly large maple at the front gate of a previous house.  It didn't block any light due to it's aspect and was particularly splendid in Autumn. There was some woodland beyond that so it wasn't out of place and wasn't an issue in any way. It never had weeping sap in all the 16 years I lived there so maybe yours does need a little check up to see if something's wrong.

Punkdoc- I like the idea of Christo Lloyd getting into some ripped clothes with safety pins
and doing his hair in spikes (with Fairy liquid to keep it in place...I know the tricks!) and listening to the Sex Pistols....

Verdun looks like Jonathan Creek- he has a duffle coat...

break - Dove is female. 

I'm a girl- hence my name...I calls it as I sees it.

I missed that moon - slept too soundly - eventually.

Have a good day at work Dove - not too many to go now 

Don't think strawbs and weetabix will catch on at SW19 Gilly 

Glad we missed the wild winds yesterday some of you had- nothing that strong here although it was unpleasantly cold and wet. I'mhoping to get on outside later though my undergardener is going out for lunch with a friend. She never asked for time off..

Are they the big ones Gilly? Think I asked you the other day but you probably didn't see my post.

Never seen one - I'd probably run a mile! I'm a real coward when it comes to moths - silly I know. Stems from childhood. I'm trying to see them as just slightly duller butterflies - not sure it's working though! ....

New gardening programme

There was a lovely programme about Sissinghurst and one about Lawrence Johnston (Hidcote) giving the history and background of the gardens. I love those. I find it fascinating how people arrive at the design of these spaces and how they were influenced-not always by plants as such.

I don't want to see us separated either Verd- even though I sometimes joke about it. I really don't think it'll happen anyway.

Summer has arrived

Are you retiring Dove- you never said...

Dove- it's the way of the world now isn't it? It's a wonder anyone stays motivated in may jobs now when we see poor work rewarded and good work ignored.

B.Dragon still looking very black but not unfolding yet Verd...

Morning all. Cracking looking day to come. 

Well done Sue...

Our schools go back around third week in August chicky. That's when we get the summer here  They stop end of June for 7 weeks. My daughter's last day on Wed too - morning only. Do your strawbs taste specially good since you grew them?

Yes Verd - get clicking!....

New gardening programme

Yes Verd- but Andy's on......Come on Mr Murray...

He's a Scot you know Verd....

What gardening progs would you want to see for two weeks then?

I loved Monty's Italian Gardens which was on last year (I think) but then, I'm biased
