Wild life...

Posted: 01/11/2013 at 22:00

Yes I watched Autumn Watch tonight and thoroughly enjoyed it -

especially the starlings and the red squirrels.  I live in Dorset, but a couple

of years ago my OH took me to see the starlings over the Somerset Levels

and it will stay with me for the rest of my life.  According to the experts, there

are two million starlings "doing their thing" at sunset every night in the winter

over the Levels and it was a wonderful sight to see, especially as there was

the most beautfiul sunset. Like you, Zoomer, I think Autumn Watch is a 

great programme - now we'll have to look forward to Spring Watch!!

Best wishes for your move Hollie!   I would feel just the same as you, but

just think of all the plans you can make during the dark winter days for

your new garden and how lovely to be moving to the country - I do envy you!

Thanks Nutcutlet - will have a look at that!  

Northern Ontario Canada snow

Posted: 31/10/2013 at 21:47

Ah yes! I remember Ontario winters well - I lived in London Ontario for eight

years and never saw snow like it before or since!  I've been back in England

for thirty years now, but will never forget my first winter in Ontario in 1975.

The snow started to fall in early November and we didn't see the pavements

again until March.  On top of that we had an ice storm which brought down

the hydro wires, so we had no lighting or heating for days.   We moan about

the weather here in England, but I'd rather winter here than in Ontario!

Is Pulmonaria rubra a wildflower Nutcutlet?  Sorry, I don't yet know any of

the latin names for flowers!  Also I've been told that oxeye daisies and poppies

thrive a lot better if they have some tall wild grasses to support them - does

anyone know the name of tall grasses that would compliment both these

flowers, but wouldn't take over too much and restrict their growth?

Hi Again Nutcutlet,]

Just to let you know I've emailed you as I still can't PM you.

Hi Nutcutlet,

Wonderful............looks like it's still not working then!  Yes, we can write

letters to each other instead, but I'd give it another day......things might

have improved by then!  Hopefully "talk" to you later Nutcutlet"

Hi folks!

Nutcutlet managed to get a PM to me yesterday and I've (hopefully) just sent

one back to her - I'm just waiting to see if she gets it.  Like you, Star Gaze Lily,

I couldn't type anything at all on Saturday, but hope it's now fixed.

Hi All,

So thankful to read that lots of you are having the same problem as me

(not being able to send pms). I thought it was my own private gremlin at

work!  Nutcutlet - I left you a message on Clueless Gardener's blog, as I

couldn't message you, but I'm not sure whether you'll read it, so thought it

best to let you know on here too! Please don't anyone else disappear......

'it's all so sad - we need you all.

delightfull welcome home

Hi James,

Sorry!  Not been following you for a while, due to a few problems, but promise

to do better now!  Hope you don't mind me using your thread to tell Nutcutlet

that I can't pm her for some reason - no matter what I do I can't type a message

to her, so I wonder if you can pm me Nutcutlet please, as last time you did

when this happened, it seemed to do the trick!  Thank you and thank you too James!
