That's a funny story KEF Don't poppy seeds take ages to ripen/dry!

I am thinking about it TT. It's hard isn't it as you don't want to cause any trouble. I have e a farm near means a dog had been barking for years, got used to that but domestic dogs continuously barking from seven in the morning is so annoying. Especially when one owner doesn't do much all day - really and not a judgment - and let's dog scream. A collie does rasp in o e's ears after a while. Sorry for spelling, it's iPad speak, corrects as typing and continuously going back and forth correcting!

KEF, thank you. It's great to know that I am not the only inperfect one!  I am nt mad on my own then... I have really good intentions! But still make mistakes Reading on the Internet is not like reading posts from here at all.  Sorry, overusing the faces here but they amuse me! Thanks

TinaTurner, I so understand about the yapping dogs! I have a neighbour who has had a collie for years (beautiful Lasssie type). I love all animals may I state before I go on. I thought it was dead as it was old. And relief from the high-pitched yap. However, over the last few months it has started again but worse. Honestly, it's awful, breaking all peace. I was tending my garden the other day and 'she' passed, walking a collie. I asked. The new collie is 18 months old. And the yap. She explained that her dog barks (yells - it piggin yells) when cats walk across her fence. I have two cats. i was too nice and couldn't find the words to say... Her dog's yap and awful yell is so disturbing every morning and for hours on end. it sets other dogs off too and they ring around - spaniel near and other dogs... Oh, it's awful. My eldest son works late evenings and it so disturbs him. I've had summer hols and not had one lie in. She admired my front garden and she asked for oriental pooppy seeds. I posted some pink ones through her door. No thanks at all. She passed again and asked for the red. They are ripening and so when I post them through her door I will add a note to say that the dog is annoying (bettter words than that). So, your post is not boring at all, I totally understand!


I will work up to the 'Good Evening Forkers' section then! But back at work next week, so will be less on this unfortunately  I will try though as it sounds fun,

Go on, I'm on hol until next week! Or is it just a threat? Like going for a long stand; bubble for a spirit level... When someone is new to something then they get their heads flushed. Fairygirl is nice, she's helped me. Oh, i have a lot to learn on here. Really funny!

And, erm, what's the yapping dog, TinaTurner? Afraid? Very!

Aw shucks! How lovely and what a welcome, thank you all. Well, I was born on this 'Janet Salisbury' as I didn't realise that I could create a name. And so I morphed into Haisie. Amusing myself with a mix of my two cat's names. But I do look through a haze of love at my garden  and so the pun... I think that I was quite rude and burst onto this without saying 'hello' - enthusiatic - but I thank all for advice, etc., and join in when I can giving snippets of advice (and my, oh my, are they snippets). I have been building an evergreen background in my garden for a long time and I am going to venture to more beautiful flowers next year as I am inspired. My garden seems to have recovered from the llandii suck and so it should bloom (was over 10 years ago!). But i am slow and much has died with or without my errors! But all seems alive and kicking now. I am a basic gardener: got lots of box balls; want to clip one into the shape of an aeroplane so that's a project. But otherwise all beginner plants that are growing nicely. Just put a yew, a Portugese laurel, a pieris and some eunonymous in the space that four lemon-scented conifers left as they died. So, basic plants. Thank you again, I really enjoy reading everyone's posts. Great site.

Gillian53, have you got a pic of it, please? I am still no-where near doing this. I think it may have to wait until next spring now for me. I'm still huffing about the place and am now running out of time.
