HELLO FORKERS March 2016 edition

Phew, thought I was gonna loose my post! great for everyone. Plenty of non tech activities and interaction (proper play rather than freaking me out as I try to work tech stuff out, many museums spoilt by this), loads of vehicles to clamber (err gently) around on, good displays ( not that son was keen on them) and the real life scenes and sounds were brill! Fancied a snack but choice was very poor, nice cofffee though n son enjoyed sausage roll and cake!

Cant view video, sorry.

No gardening, went to mums after, stayed longer as she's not well.

CLARI hi! We missed you, you must have been hiding - or maybe you were the patient in the ambulance - my son to thank for your recovery, I have a nice picture of him stroking your brow. I did keep an eye out in case I could guess who you are. We had a fab day, only there an hour but he ran at top speed everywhere! You must have heard him! He was the one with Down's syndrome and big massive oops from me  I'd forgotten it was world Down's syndrome week , no odd socks for us .

Enjoyed the new museum app. Son did some CPR with the lovely heart foundation chap and his dummy, dressed up as a policeman, got locked in a police car and then in a cell! A really good museum.

Morning all.

Dry and still out there, bit overcast - could go either way later.

Son has decided we are going to Clari's place of work today! Or was it Clari that moved on to a new job? Its not far so leaves time to get in the garden too.

AYM, don't mind Verdun...I think ribbons would look nice draping down

If I put a climbing hydrangea on an arch 1, will it be too heavy, 2, will it swamp any other climber with it (eg clematis or rose) ???

Sorry about the new name Philippa  Its wood not metal.

Ferns grow in cracks in walls - no soil, dry - sounds ok. On the same vein - would that flowery trailey thing work (aubretia?), guess not or someone would have mentioned it.


Crocus or hyacinth bulbs next year?

Plastic plants would work a treat

I have plenty of black grass (can't spell the other!) Paula. But what about their roots? Don't they need room to spread? Or will they still be happy 'contained'?
