Dove, I was referring to the Fork Handles thread on here  Not the other one.

No private club

This is the first forum I've ever joined (me being a wimp ) but have to say as of late it seems to have become more of one of those social networking sites .

I appreciate that some people enjoy a bit of banter but have you seen just how many threads are on there now totally unrelated to gardening? I'm thinking of starting a Good Afternoon Forkers Thread. Why not ? We've got the Morning one and the Evening one.

We've already had a thread for general chitchat which anyone could join. It wasn't a clique, a club or for exclusive membership only - it was for everyone .

I for one cannot be bothered with the constant sniping and ridiculous threads that are being posted.  I agree with Glyn - lifes too short.

(And so's the gardening season. )

Hi Bjay  Glad you don't have to go back to hospital with your foot. My friend had a knee op a while ago and was also told that it would never be as good as what it was but now she's running around like a Spring chicken.

Maybe in due time it will be a little better if you don't do too much.

Sausage buttie then off to friends.

what jobs done over easter.

Jet washed all the patio - well OH did. I washed all pots , transplanted some bits and pieces into my new border where we have installed a new water feature and lobbed all pot feet and garden ornaments in dishwasher.

Weather was kind for once so had a lovely few days in the sunshine. Looking forward to getting it planted once the weather warms up. All babies coming along nicely.

Morning everyone.  We've just had a snow shower ! Now it's gone back to being lovely and sunny - very odd.

Late visit from Grandson and girlfriend last night so not really ''with it'' yet. No big plans as of yet but will take advantage of the sunshine.

Please don't come back , snow.

Typical  Finally got motivated outside and spent a few hours digging and pottering under a grey chilly sky. The minute I get in , the sun's cracking the flags.

Lovely evening here.

Afties,  Admiring my nice clean patio after yesterday's efforts but it's gone cold again today. Hard to get motivated at the mo but keep telling myself I'll give it another hour.

Yesterday was lovely - picked a good day.

Sitting here doing nothing.

I need some inspiration.

Morning  Lovely sunny day here - none of the ''s'' word so will be getting outside when it warms up and then some more pricking out .

Why is it when you discipline yourself to sowing half a packet of seeds, you get millions of plants regardless ?

Have a good day everyone.

Morning - just  Have been busy last couple of days. Water feature up and running and the other one now in rockery all sorted - just needs planting now.

Just found a little dead mouse in one of the buckets that had melted snow in cos I was out of rainwater.

More pricking out today. I enjoy that

Need to catch up on all the posts - Hope everyone's well and warm.
