Dove PM'd you.

Thanks for kind wishes about poorly, I'm not ill, best to describe is I went to bed on Friday night with 10 toenails and got up Sat' with 9. It hadn't been sore or turned black, I just dropped a bar of soap on it a few days / weeks ago ? Now it's gone missing leaving a raw sore  toe. Nurse KEF has kept it clean and covered during the day & let air to it at night. It's going to be a very pretty foot in sandals.

Countryfile were discussing Halal meat.

Best get on, as hop along & broken back have lawns to cut at Mum's.

Good Morning, sunny & 8C.

Sounds like a lot of new projects and hard work was planned last night.

Hope the ear soon improves Dove. I hope the lily does perform otherwise I'll feel

I've got a poorly  but won't tell until people have eaten.

Lovely carvings Bill. 

David, item on Countryfile also wound me up.

Thanks for spag bol Fairy, OH loved it, I don't like pasta much but enjoyed little fairies.

Hope all have a good day either in the garden, or "planning" at work.

Dove I'm sure it will. Mine have been in pots for ages and still produce a huge lily / lilies, the bulblets don't seem to do anything unless you totally repot and grow them on, which I haven't done. Will do shortly with two pots as they got frost damaged last year and are dropping to bits. I top dress mine in Spring & give a tomato feed when they start to show flower heads. Then give liquid feed as they die off.  I'm no expert but have grown for years and my method works for me

That's me done working    Weeded 2 beds, hoed, turned bins, lifted thing in & out of GH for an airing, pruned, and now pooped. Going to sit on bench in remains of sun, still in shorts  and plan what's to do tomoz'. Might have a long cold drink

Has anyone got any spare food? I forgot about that. Will have to be the defrosted chicken thighs and "summat".  

Dove my undergarden is still crook...hasn't broken the spade rather broken his back ( me thinks pulled it ) well enough for footie match but can't bend properly  Pond so , hope that's envy & not sick.

Bob never encountered honey fungus, hope all thrives. Hardly dared type that, don't want to tempt fate. We've seen one butterfly and rescued 2 bees from GH. They get cross when you grab them with kitchen towel  

Dove lily beetles  Spent half last Spring / Summer hunting the devils, this year they get Provado. I've 7 pots of lilies and it became an obsession last year, spot the beetle.

p.s. I wasn't offering Vodka & Tequila earlier just trying to make my pal Panda poorly, I'm kind like that  Hope you now well recovered Panda x

Back in to put shorts on 20C in sun

Glad you feeling better Panda

Just popped back whilst I eat a banana seems a long time until evening meal.

Dove glad you've got some treatment.

Hi Fairy, Lizzie & Lily & all.

Panda, you naughty Panda wrecked on a gardening day  If I'd been back earlier I would have suggested you eat a snotty runny egg

Anyone on here fancy a Vodka, or a Tequila ?

Dove most certainly the first definition, didn't know the second  Broddle is often used in conjunction with cotton wool bud.

Hi Verdun, very sensible, slowly slowly, but can't see it happenening, just lots of moaning and aches tomorrow.

Breakfast now eaten, off I go.

Have a great day


Posted: 09/03/2014 at 08:04

Dove, sorry about ear. Keep it dry & don't broddle if you would must be thinking of me. Hope you aren't too long in the surgery. Maybe a supervising and not doing too much day is a better plan for you.

I think 9am is acceptable, people should be up if the sun is shining, you'll be doing them a favour.
