Hello Forkers ... July Edition

Posted: 13/07/2017 at 18:03


I so want to offer you something helpful,but not sure how.

I have suffered from many of the symptoms your OH has [ and continue to suffer from some of them ]

I did not seek help for a long time, it did not seem a very manly condition to suffer from. I refused CBT for quite a long time, could not see how talking would solve my problems.

Eventually I did try it and it has been a revelation.

I was eventually forced into leaving my job, but have made great improvements over the last few years.

I am still scared about many social situations, struggle with change and have very few of my friends left.

I do however have a good life now and believe I will continue to improve.

There is hope.

Plant ID under tree please

I agree Kitty, but I don't think it is P.americana

Deficiency or bad drainage?

Hi all.

I am sure most of you will have had days when you look at the garden and you think, I just don't like this bit and that bit and another bit.

So that is what happened this morning and I foresaw carnage, plants decimated, huge holes in the border.

Anyway sensibly I thought, I need to go before I do things I regret, so have been for a lovely walk through the fields and woods and feel much better for it.

Just need to not do anything silly, now that I am home.

NBeach, try not to worry, see your GP ASAP and they will get it sorted.

I am sure you are aware of this, but it is an annual, so it will die after flowering.

Should self seed though.

Sat in front of the computer, glass of milk and a packet of digestives. Exciting life or what.

OH missed her train, so still not home, better pour her a stiff drink.

White ones tend to stay white, whatever th pH.

Key to Hydrangeas is in the name, water and plenty of it.

Prune old flower heads off in Spring, they provide some frost protection to the emerging leaves. You can also remove some old shoots from the base each year, to keep compact and to gradually renew the plant.

Climate change or just The Weather!

Any Ideas?

I know I will be severely castigated for this, but are the climate change deniers the same people who voted for BREXIT.

It does not surprise me, that D. Trump is a denier and confirms that the opposite must be true.

As some of you know, I spent a little time working with the scientists in the Arctic. If you did not believe before hand, a few weeks with them, would convince you.
