GG- I opted out but still get them  I've listed them as spam and I just check that now and again in case there's a PM. I do the same as you and nut- just look at the various threads to see if I can help or if there's anything of special interest, and I check the main ones I follow.

Tina- you would have needed cake if you visited Verd..

Did you have a lie down after that Bev- it must have taken you ages to write! I know what you mean about forgatting what's been said by the time you write- I'm putting it down to my age  even though I'm only 27....

Nice here now so will go out and put weed n feed on. Ground will be more amenable - if that's the right word - after the rain yesterday.

Feeding meal worms to my nesting blue tits

LeadF- someone on here has one but I can't remember who. If you start a thread for it you'll get a reply I'm sure.

Gfantic - when I looked on the packet of mealworms it says - put them in a feeder!

When I made cake last night I soaked sultanas for it - I'll need to watch I don't get distracted next time or the soaked mealworms might end up in it instead...

What's your Flower of the moment?

BL- I'm not a huge fan of roses but that dark pink 'Tess' is beautiful.

Hi reb - love Jacob's Ladder -the white one though! There's a variegated one called 'Brise d'Anjou' which I used to have. If you like J's L - it's a very nice plant.

fence panel type

Hi daz - they do look like lap but hard to see as pic is on it's side! They actually look upside down. If you do a search online for fencing you'll find lots of fencing companies with pix of the various types of panel available. I used 'Fence-Supermarket' to get posts from recently and they stock all the panels too but there are loads of places which do them. Lots of builder's merchants stock them too and are cheaper.

Virtual cake is good Fairygirl,but some days only the real thing will do

Of course what we really need is someone to invent real cake with virtual fat and calories

bye Dove...just one plant won't hurt.....

Just had to rescue my tomatoes as growhouses had blown over 

Lost one of the 20p ones snapped at the ankles- the big ones are fine thank goodness. 

Such is life!

Help needed to create a new garden

Re  the grasses - 'block' beds of differing heights with  grasses can make a nice alternative to big areas of 'lawn' grass too. Easier to maintain and give movement and  impact. Visually perhaps too as they are a strong shape?

Rodgy- it does look very much like the little flag Irises - had tons of them in the ponds at last house as the rabbits didn't eat them, and I brought one with me here. This new one's about 60cm I'd say - 2' in old money. Incredibly dark,velvety and sumptuous with a very fine golden yellow line and sprinkle on the falls.

I sound like Lawrence LLewelyn-Bowen there

Morning all. Lots of people up and about today! Damp here and none too warm with more rain to come but to clear up by lunchtime so I'll get weed n feed done and it'll get watered in overnight. Good timing. The ground has been so dry I decided to wait as rain was forecast for yesterday and it's done a world of good. 

I can send you  virtual cake Gilly which is fat free, sugar free, guilt  free- in fact .... everything free! I get the real thing though  

Taking most of it to work or I'll eat the whole thing 

Not seen Verd- in fact not seen blackest -he's not been on recently. Hope he's alright.

Dove that's a lovely little 'vignette' you've described there 

Looking forward to the pix Andy- had a quick look at the ones from last night. Glad you had a nice time - and scones of course!

Good Evening FORKERS

My OH is pretty good too. He hoovered the bedroom and cleaned the bathroom today. He often washes up, but he's very sploshy!

Sploshy BL- I like that 

Off to bed now- night all
