Dying plants

Posted: 07/07/2013 at 10:12

Best of luck ddaisy. The chicken carcass thing is bizarre! What goes through some people's heads?? Ivy's quite tough and hard to kill so it may be fine as you say. The fish are another issue though. Horrible to think someone is taking/ harming them. It's the fact that they're coming into your property in the night or when you're out etc. Very worrying for you.

I can't believe people would be so unpleasant - but then again...nothing should surprise me about the human race any more. Let us know how your investigations go daydaisy. I hope you get to the bottom of it. Maybe you can get hold of a video type camera so that you can monitor the area - that might give you the answer. In fact- could you get hold of a fake one- like the burglar alarms- and make a show of putting it up? Perhaps that would be enough to deter the 'vandal' if that's what's happening 

Confession- slug olympics

CCat we had a a neighbour years ago who didn't look after their  garden and the weeds were 6' tall - willow herb- (hence my ongoing hatred of it!). I was fed up keeping them at bay and when I started growing plants which slugs were attracted to  I took great delight in going out at night and lobbing the slugs over my garage roof into his garden. I daresay they did come back if they survived the Concorde style flight.....but it was very satisfying!!! I got quite good at it- not too many got impaled on the jaggy garage wall...

I do the same as you Steve with the huge snails I have here.

Morning all. Sounds like everyone has a good day planned. Andy the gardens sounded lovely. Sad when someone has to leave something they've loved for a long time especially when the new owners don't really understand what it's  meant. A lesson for us all in there perhaps?

That Dierama sounds lovely Verd. Would like one of those.

My hedgehog didn't come again last night. 

I don't know, you do your best for them , and are they grateful? Are they **** pick uo after them and you feed them and...oh no- that's the children. 

Hope today goes well Dove. Sun to shine everywhere.

Is it wrong for me to want rain later so I won't feel guilty if I watch Andy?

Good Evening FORKERS

Mmmm coffee and walnut ...

I'm a greedy fairy...all that sawing and digging and concreting..makes me hungry for cake...cake...I want cake..

Very satisfying - putting in plants you've grown yourself GG 

Watching Brideshead Revisited.... bestest ever...and then bed.

Nighty night all. Sleep well everyone.

No probs Dove- but I'd need to stop and watch the tennis....

I expect evryone else knows this but -what's thunder and lightning? 

Used to like Campari with lemonade- tasted like grapefruit. Don't drink at all now though.

Hot down your way today Tina. If you go to bed now you can always get up at 6am and work outside before it gets hot...I'll give you an alarm call..

KEF-  get on that rant thread my love - and get it off your chest!

Sorry Verd... It was only a little bit of cake...daughter took most of it away to her Dad's. Just as well really !

KEF- have two bacon butties tomorrow and all will be well with the world. You can look forward to enjoying your roses while eating them.

Woody - it's a tough job but someone has to do it  

Have another lovely day tomorrow.

I ate all the cake KEF- sorry. But you have wine so you'll be fine...

Oh - that rhymed!

You're lucky you get a text- I get two hour phone calls  Sisters eh?

Loppers are better than secateurs....
