HELLO FORKERS!

OH jabs rescheduled for week after next

His diving medical is scheduled for this Thursday. Mad panic last night looking for his medical records. I can self certify because I am generally healthy.

Ooh, kef,  I remember white water rafting on the Tully river in Queensland. I fell out on top of a duckbilled platypus. Now there's an odd creature.

I must remember to order some more bird food today. They're eating tons at the moment. Cue sparrowhawk to bring the population down again.

Have a good day everyone.

Viburnum in flower

My viburnum bodnantense dawn is flowering now, along with an oriental poppy and primula  viallii. I think the cold then warm again has convinced some plants that it's spring.

Good morning chicky.

I'm up early because OH has gone to Leeds,with an early start. I can't doze off because I have to get up at 7 to go off into the Derbyshire peaks for work. Off to the cliff face again. Well I can see the quarry face from the back door anyway. We caught up with last week by 5 yesterday, so today should be a doddle. So long as the computers don't go down again,dad does as he's told,and the flickering fluorescent tube gets fixed.

Unhappy with new fence - doesn't match old

Does the guttering of the neighbours garage drain on to your land? Is there a drain there or is it a soakaway? The way the fence has been put in implies the next door neighbours garage is right up to the boundary with the gutter hanging over.

Don't forget that you will need lots of vases.

You can get some nice  vintage vases off of Ebay, and also by browsing the charity shops. I picked up a 6 inch cut crystal vase last week for £1.50.

September already. Where did summer go?

With all the hoo ha last week, OH forgot nurse appointment to get holiday jabs. A bit of creeping is going to be necessary to reschedule. I have two days at work, got to catch up on last week still. Have a good day everyone.

 

Apple tree advice please!

My thoughts were a bacterial canker below the graft line. Burn it and get a new tree.

I'm off to hospital visiting. Dad is getting better by the day, he managed to get out of bed yesterday. Tomorrow I expect we'll have to strap him in to keep him in bed.

I'll cut him a bunch of grapes from the greenhouse. He had some last week,said they were sweet but had pips in. No pleasing some folk. Morrisons grapes have no pips but were not sweet enough. My nephew complained that the worcester apples off my tree were not sweet enough. One of the girls at work said they would be alright for her horse!!! 

I see that twelve nunns nursery have Trillium grandiflorum plenum and T. roseum..

Plant now for gorgeousness next Spring.
