Good Evening FORKERS

Hi there TT.  Doctor has said that they were not sure but put it down to tenderness and muscle strain - overdoing it again.  Helping with the scaffolding and doing too much digging, etc, didn't help at all.

Brilliant idea AT just used stones like I got to put round a pond.  Was thinking of doing just that, although the stones I have are a little smaller.

Evening all.  Much too tired to do anything today.  Raining on and off.  After lots of litter picking yesterday at volunteering for Conservation Day at Sholing Valley Study Centre now have backache (should be resting after stay in hospital).  Didn't realise litter was as heavy as it was until trudging back to centre.  Phew!!

Just been catching up on thread.

Off to bed now as very tired.   Night all.

Evening all, even though I am meant to be resting I collected some seeds from the garden (mallow and scabia) and cut down the red campion as it has finished flowering.  Watched Tatton and GW, loved the ducks in the bath, and the other five were well designed.

GG - before and after pictures of the garden, if possible, please.

Verdun - cake!!

WW - what a shame that some people just can't hold on until others have finished in the garden before starting bonfires.

Pennine Petal - off to GC - get something for me, plantwise.  Really missing out on getting around.  Silly pain.


What is this,please?

Thanks Verdun, just wondering as well are they all pre packed or do they have to pick them off the shelves?  Me interested in what you do that is why the questions I ask. 

Tatton show nice train station themed garden and I guess I must be thinking solar system for the design of the front garden, they look similar to my ideas I have noted down

verdun - nice one with the strawberries

Busy-Lizzie hot where you are now - got cooler here now but still quite warm - oh can I have some of your runner beans as only one runner bean has climbed to the top of the canes and no flowers yet, slugs eat most, and tried to sow direct seeds not done as well.

Evening forkers, evening all

Been watching Tatton park as well tonight forgot it was on as Monty said this last weeks show, noticed it when checking if GW on tomorrow on tv and looked and saw 2 of 2 and thought I had missed no 1 but looked today and found it on in the evening

Remember Tatton park on tomorrow night 7pm and GW 8.30 - 2 gardening shows then

Spring watch 9pm guide to butterflies and moths that might help ID that moth fairygirl, I did try and look but so many moths and could not find it

Rained a lot last night sure the plants were needing that - cooler today, I collected seeds last night lucky they were dry.
