Hello Forkers - May Edition

Hi all.

Wet again.

I agree fairy, 3 girls was deeply moving.

Also QT sort of summed up the state of the world today, IMO.

We currently give aid to Yemen, for their food shortage. However, we also sell arms to the Saudis, who bomb Yemen and cause the food shortage.

Is the human race stupid ?

If from plugs, I would keep in pots, increasing the size as they grow.

They will probably be ready to plant out in late summer and may well flower this year.

What weed is this?

Mare's tail I am afraid.

Very hard to eradicate.

Hi all.

I would describe it as vernal out there. I think it was Dove's OH, who described it as bucolic yesterday.

My OH has been away, running a meeting, so I need to tidy up to.

Today I am very happy, because I think that we just might be near the end of Trump.

Tickets for Chatsworth arrived yesterday, slight problem is that we are going with SIL and she is a PITA.

I am a lot further North than you, but I dig mine up, leave them in a cold greenhouse, then cut them to the ground in about March.

Mine are now sturdy plants and will go into the garden soon.

It is also a good idea to take cuttings in late summer.

Sounds idyllic Dove.

What are your favourite self-seeding annuals?

Calendula and Chrysanthemum segetum are lovely.

Sadly only the one.

The bell used to be rung when there was an air raid over Sheffield, to warn the locals as sometimes they would try to blow up the railway tunnel which runs near the house.

Unless you have a duck house you are not posh. [ I don't ], but I do have a bell tower.
