Avatars & Profiles

Posted: 17/02/2013 at 20:20

I quite agree, am a sinner myself, but I just haven't found a photo of myself which is beautiful enough ! Will put one in soon though, as soon as I've figured out how to do it. I have filled in a profile though, even if i haven't been able to get rid of the Tower Hamlets yet. Never did get a reply to my e-mail asking why my real location doesn't appear.

February in Your Garden

Posted: 17/02/2013 at 12:28

Mid-February and right now the bird table is swamped with about 30 odd starlings which have just returned from the south. Still six inches of snow here, but they are sure sign that Spring is on its way, yoo hoo!

Dove, what a kind and logical reply! Perhaps the son can be contacted to find out what he did with the things he removed and they can get them back, fingers crossed!

Hanging baskets and window boxes

Beautiful hanging basket and window box LL, do you just plant from the top or also out of the sides?

I had some lovely Million Bells of various colours last year, and no, they're not sticky like petunias, which I've also given up on. Also the very dark red and red and white striped pelargoniums looked nice.

"desirable" plants that become invasive monsters

Lily of the valley and vinca major, planted by previous owner and spread throughout the perennial border. In fact some still pop up several feet away from where they were first planted.

What's the weather like in your area?

12 inches of snow here and still coming down, at 425 meters. No go in the garden, except to feed and feed and feed the birds!

I'm afraid this type of spam is getting worse and worse. I often find it on readers comments in daily newspapers (not to mention in my E-mail in-box!) and always push the "report abuse" button. Shame you can't do that here.
