HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 11/01/2014 at 12:34

Hi Dove, it's good to be back. I haven't seen any bulbs other than the daffs and grape hyacyniths that came with me. I know it's daft but will miss not having any crocus this year

Did spot a primose on the bank behind the house and there are going to be lots of wild foxgloves. As it's on a small holding/farm the owner has a passion for trees and shrubs so looking forward to seeing them. Don't know anything about shrubs

I caught a couple of these programmes and think it's brilliant that there are finally some gardening programmes on in the Winter. I really enjoyed Monty's slot about wildflowers. Will try and remember to watch on Monday as I think that's when Lily Louise (pams) garden is on

HELLO FORKERS!

Hello everyone, been a while since I've been on. Haven't had the internet, still don't really but managed to borrow it this weekend. The sun is out and whilst I should be outside doing something useful, think I'm going to stay in and play on the internet.

Hope everyone's ok, I've noticed that the days are getting longer (bit by bit), roll on the Spring time.

Can't id the plant Stacey, sort of looks familar though, similar to jack frost? Managed to get a small flower bed planted with some of my old plants and Oh has built a small coldframe which is housing all my autumn sown plants.

Off for a look around, hope everyone has a good day

Not usually awake and/or  active at this time of the morning  but got a busy day ahead. Thanks again for your good wishes, it's going to be brilliant! Already looking forward to sleeping in the complete darkness and listening out for the owls

The inside is good to go, just got to get the hefty bits of furniture in.

Thanks both, still feels a bit unreal as it's happened so quickly. It's going to be a great place to live.

Already thinking about plants that might do well there

silly quotes

You can take a horse to water but you can't make it drink

Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun

Many a true thing said in jest

Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back

I can hardly believe that I'm going to be living there if I'm honest. I feel very lucky
