HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 15/08/2014 at 09:18

Morning all. SM done, despite severe dose of man flu.

I ordered my bulbs earlier this week. I grow tulips [ except for species ] in pots and replant the biggest bulbs from the previous year. I also like to add a new type of Narcissus and a few more Crocus to the borders. Also got some more Camassia for the bog garden.

Nice to see you back Chicky.

Hope you are well soon Clari.

The dentist was a disaster yesterday, a lot of work needed. I do not know how they can justify the prices they charge.

Have a good day everyone.

Finally I feel an apology is in order for anyone I upset over my support for a certain person. I received a PM from him, thanking me for my support and then going on to be very X-rated ad not very nice. My support was clearly misplaced

Just back from SM, roof down and Blurs greatest hits on the stereo.

Morning all.

Dentist this morning, not one of my favourite things.

Did I miss something on here yesterday?

Congratulations to and your OH. OL. I am sure you will make a success of it and reap some deserved rewards.

Have a good day everyone.

Evening all. Another lazy day here, due to bugs and weather.

Have had a nice time looking through seed catalogues, to plan next year, and choosing bulbs for Spring.

Need to decide what to do for tea, with some rather nice looking lamb cutlets.

Glad you had a good holiday Lesley.

Hope the workers have survived, have a good evening everybody.

Newly planted Dogwood Tree advice

As Verdun says, Cornuses require a lot of water.

Root pruning is an accepted way of treating trees when they are repotted and you dont have a bigger pot. However 7 inches is a bit drastic!

I've got a new butterfly

This summer has certainly been a great one for butterflies here. Perhaps it is not quite as gloomy as has been said.

No Small Coppers for me, but I do seem to have large numbers of Gatr Keepers which have arrived in the last week or so.

 Good morning all.Woke up to the terrible news of Robin Williams, he really made me laugh, and Dead Poets Society and Good Will Hunting were such great films. It is sad how many of the great comics are troubled souls.

Sunny here again, but full of cold, so another lazy day I suspect.

OL, I too am getting very twitchy about new season, away to Wet Spam, one of our many mortal enemies. I cant believe how stressed I get about it at my age. When younger I could not go out on a Saturday when we lost; I spent a lot of nights in!

Good luck to the workers and  swift cures to the poorly.

Afternoon all, very windy here all day.

If i had been any lazier, I would have developed pressure sores.

Need to start on tea, which will be the first thing I have done today.

Have a good evening all.

Knautia question,

They will come back each year. They seem to prefer drier soil in my garden. I would wait to move them until autumn.

HELLO FORKERS!

Quite agree with you OL, cant stand doctors myself. I think waiting till after hols. is a great idea. Sure you will feel much better. However if you dont, bite the bullet and get seen.

Dont worry about the garden, I have been failing to stake stuff properly for 20 years, although I am gradually getting better. It would not be so much fun, if you did not find things you can do better next year.

What was happening in Blackpool this weekend?
