Hi  F.Fs

Forgot about the skydive man and turned news on just in time to see him start the ascent. Good luck to him.

Good morning F.Fs,

Pleased that everyone has food at last, is over their lurgies and Inka has rain.

Love your glory lily ,Gary.

I watched 'Have I got news for you' last night. They were talking about the skydiver, Felix Baumgartner.  Someone said,' and if you are watching a repeat of this on Dave, the late Felix Baumgartner. It's supposed to go ahead tomorrow.

Oh I don't fancy Dartmoor, Geoff. I passed it in the summer once and looked very bleak and cold.

Did you remember to pre-breathe, Geoff?

I've been waiting for a police raid since someone posted about the pensioners buying a plant from a car boot. I bought a plant from a car boot a few years ago. It died off in the winter but last year and this year seedlings  have come up.  It's too late to flower this year but when it does the flowers are purple with a yellow centre, similar to potato flowers. I think it's some sort of solanum. If not will you please visit me in prison.

Oh, Kate I'm disappointed now. Fritillaries do seem to need special conditions though so I can only try. 

Geoff, aren't chickens horrible when they catch something alive? One runs arround with it dangling out of it's mouth with the others chasing it. Mine caught a toad and I'm sure they couldn't have ate it. Supposed to taste awful and are poisonous. I managed to rescue the toad but I  don't know if it survived, didn't look too happy.

I took down and emptied out a window box this morning. It was full of vine weevil grubs. I'm sure I gave it a dose of provado earlier but must need a couple of doses. Chickens were grateful for the feast.

Good morning F.Fs

Lovely photos Jean and Chris.

Lottie are you going to Soton to view the house next door to Geoff?

Gave myself a treat and ordered some fritillary bulbs after seeing them on GW last week. I think if I plant them in the garden the squirrels and rabbits will have them so I'll pot them up and plant them out after flowering next year. They have included 15 peach tulips with order free.

Hello bjay,

If you click on 'view first unread message' it should get you there but if you haven't posted recently perhaps you wouldn't see that message.

I don't think we are supposed to mention the C******* word but maybe the powers that be will let you off this time.

Glad I don't have to dig a bunker.

Hi Maud,

I read on one site that the skydiver was going to have another go tomorrow. They can't use the same balloon again and the balloons and helium gas are so expensive that if tomorrow is a failure they will have to put if off indefinitely. May have all changed though since I read that.

I always thought that when any sort of gas filled balloon got to a certain height it would burst as the pressure inside would be more than the outside pressure. I must be wrong,
