Too wet for the lawn mower so I got some help in. Keeping an eye on them, though, in case they pig out on the apples.

Does your wand not work on concrete, Fairy?

The worst pest in my garden,Verdun, is rabbits. Are there any nematodes against them?   I have never had lily beetle but we are fairly isolated here. I don't know how far they can fly but they seem widespread now so I suppose it's only a matter of time.

Thanks Verdun. You were right about the summer forcast so hope you are right about the winter, but maybe could we have a few frosts to kill off the bugs.

Morning everyone.

I hope we are not going to have falling outs again. I find this thread great as I didn't always get round to reading both the evening and morning threads. So much easier when there's just one place to find you all.

Really warm for time of year. What is Verdun's (Michael Fish) forcast for the winter?

Good afternoon everyone,

Oooh  Matty, must have been scarey, but I read they are not agressive only if we accidently touch them. Apparently they've been here for a hundred years or so.

I've just seen  a humming bird hawk moth on the single dahlias. Only the second one I've seen this year. I went to get the camera then we had a torrential downpour. the sun is out again and the bumble bees are back on the dahlias so hopefully the moth will come back.

Good morning all,

Sorry to hear about your friend,Dove. We were really worried about my son last year as he had terrible headaches and his eye drooped. The GP  said they were worrying signs but the scan didn't pick up any nasties in his brain but found a nodule on his thyroid which was not related to the headaches apparently.  He has since had half of the thyroid removed and is trying to cope with not taking thyroxine. So hopefully your friend's outcome might not as bad as she has been told.

Serious! Really

This thread brings back so many memories.

My first dog was called 'Yeller'. He was a cross lab and so like the dog in the film. Ijust looked the film up on YouTube and will watch it again when I've got a big supplies of tissues ready.

Good afternoon all,

Hope  everyone is okay.

It's been a lovely afternoon. I've cleared a bit of the greenhouse out of tomato plants and potted up some snake heads. Last year a mouse ate the snakies I planted so have covered these ones with a wire grid.

I read once that if a phone was dropped in water sometimes covering it with dry rice can restore it. Need a lot of rice for a laptop, though, Lizzy.

Hope everything is settling down now and waterbutts comes back.

I feel sorry for people who are nasty to other people. They must be really unhappy in their own lives. I'm sure happy people would not dream of making horrid comments.

Fairy is right. Because we can't see each others faces or hear their voice sometimes what they say is misunderstood.

Serious! Really

I loved Champion the wonder horse too, but I loved Count Duckular and Ivor the Engine when the dragons appeared. Watched the last two with my son.

Sorry I lead some astray reguarding Chicky's birthday. Being 27 I get confused sometimes.

Careful up those ladders, fidget.
