Good Evening FORKERS

Hello CH80, and welcome.

Good Evening FORKERS

Education and hard work has always been a way out of poverty.

Iwas thinking the same as Dove. If it died from honeyfungus, you have a problem, as replanting will just mean more loss of trees.

Good Evening FORKERS

I had a great grandmother on my mothers side , who was orphaned and then went into service in a big house, as a ladies maid to a duchess. On the other side , my great grandfather was orphaned at the age of eight, didn't go down the mines as expected, started selling pots door to door, and eventually ended up with a 7 bedroom house, 12 kids, and a live in maid. (and a stained glass window to his memory in the methodist chapel next door) Its history. It makes no difference to who I am now. We are all self made men or women. These days class seems to depend on how much money you have.  Rich people become poor, and poor people can become rich.

Robin watch

I find the robins love dried mealworms , worms out of the compost heap, and suet pellets. Mine will feed from the feeders with rings instead of stick perches.

Gardens we have visited 2013

There were lots of sculptures that were very naturalistic. The deer, and swan I particularly liked, but there were also large metal teasels, and umbellifers, which I imagine in winter will look great .  Also a girl sat on a log, very lifelike.

Root Cutting

Many perennials that have fleshy roots. Phlox paniculata and oriental poppies, and perennial cornflowers (centaurea montana) will respond well.

Before or after it has gone through a human?

What is this

Posted: 29/09/2013 at 23:16

Next door has a clump of pink jap anemones that is pretty indestructible. 10 years of the dogs bashing it down didn't kill it. I took a clump off it three years ago, thinking if they were moving , the new neighbours might dig it up.  It has just flowered for me for the first time.  The original clump, now there are no dogs, is magnificent.

I had bought several  different types in pots and planted them and lost them. They seem to be happy in the clay next door, but not in my sand.
