Hello Forkers ... July Edition

Hi all.

Non sexist welcome.

Cold, wet and windy.

Hosta, could be a Morton's neuroma, see your GP, or a podiatrist.

Me too Dove.

Went looking for some Irish Yew pillars, £70 each, too rich for my blood.

Had car cleaned for first time since I bought it 2 years ago. I thanked the young girl , 17 -18 as she finished the polishing, she smiled and said I had made her day. Obviously I am used to having this effect on young girls, but I asked why, to be told I was the first person to thank her today. Why don't people have good manners anymore ?

Very humid and thundery here, but no rain.

Very interesting B3.

I am fascinated by how different our garden experiences can be.

Makes it very hard to give good advice.

Should I avoid euphorbia due to toxicity?

Agree with Hosta.

Life is dangerous, Euphorbia are a minor risk compared with many other things.

Hi all.

Glorious day in prospect today, followed by the inevitable thunder storms tomorrow.

Lawn cutting day, so that will keep me out of trouble for a few hours.

Off to see mum in her new flat at the w/e, sisters have been the first two since she moved in.

I am not a geek, but love Dr. Who, expect a visit from the Daleks later Hosta.

Nanny Beach

My OH loves sitting and walking round our garden, occasionally passing comments.

She virtually never does anything though.

I don't regard it as a chore, it is my passion, but does it count in the division of tasks?

Sorry B3, I am afraid I disagree about sun and Dahlias.

In the wild they grow in full sun, in a very hot climate.

I grow lots and try to place them in as sunny a place as possible.

I do not know why your Dahlia is wilting

Lovely picture fg., it is indeed a Stonechat, not a bird I have seen often, a really great sighting.

There are undoubted dilemmas facing men today, from my perspective anyway.

We are no longer the sole breadwinners and this can lead to a sense of failure.

We are taught to be more emotionally aware, but are sometimes made to feel unmanly for doing so.

I think many men are not sure where they fit into society now and that this is at least partly responsible for the huge increase in mental health issues amongst younger men.

There are days on here where i feel I should just butt out, which is absolutely fine, but an emotional awareness of how the few males who use this thread, could perhaps be attempted.

I do feel that criticism of a man, who does not do exactly 50% of the chores is wrong. Perhaps we should not be judging another persons relationship.

Growing grass

I don't think a weed membrane will help, weed seeds just land on the grass and grow.

You need to break up that hard core, before you lay the lawn, otherwise there will be no drainage.
