Where are YOU?

Posted: 23/04/2014 at 22:25

I'm down the road from you Esther3, in Barrow-in-Furness - at the end of a 40 mile cul-de-sac!

What do you do or what did you do at work

Oh maybe we have worked in the same places, David!?

David - its the environment you work in and the people you work with that makes the difference to any job.  Are your work mates a good lot?

I have done admin work in a variety of different places - local council, gas terminal, pharmaceutical company, construction and a charity organisation.  Also worked for a short time as a classroom assistant and in a preschool nursery.  I gave up my last job because the politics of the place wasn't worth the small salary they paid.  Thankfully it was only 15 hrs a week and we were able to survive with my husbands wage.  So at present I'm not in paid employment, but I am definitely fully employed - house, garden, two daughters, and a batty dog!  Could do with earning again now, though, with the prospect of supporting our daughters through university.

Do I talk too much.?

Please keep sharing your knowledge and thoughts, Mike, where would the forum be without you and the many other experienced gardeners who enlighten us newbies on a daily basis.  Thanks for sharing . . . .  everyone.  

Gardening Book

Orchid Lady, good quality second hand books can be a good option, ie from Amazon, ebay.  You can find good quality used books for much less.  I have bought a few like this and if they turn out to be not as good as I might have expected I've not wasted too much money, and if they are what I'm looking for, I've got myself a bargain.  Must add that I've not been disappointed yet.

Anybody know what it is yet???

Tray14, your plant looks to be the double of one I recently acquired from my parents garden.  They told me it is a weeping willow, but don't know the exact variety, sorry.
