MORNING FORKERS

Oh Brumbull, you are upset, I for one respect your principles and will continue to post here if I may.

Dreary morning is looking slightly better, sun is trying to come out. Got postcard to say my spectacles are ready to pick up, so will go this afternoon. Am looking forward to something a bit more modern!

Weed (perhaps)?

Could be wrong, but it looks a bit like an aquiligia to me, very pretty flowers but does seed itself around.

HELLO FORKERS!

Can I say?

Posted: 20/10/2013 at 16:58

What can you say, Verdun, not much I'm afraid, facts are facts. I seem to have upset someone, whose post made me very angry, in fact I still am. Maybe the poster meant well, but sometimes you have consider how the "recipient" might feel and I'm not sorry for my remarks. Sometimes the truth hurts and all I can say ist "if the cap fits, wear it". It is not right to tell someone so bluntly what they should or should not do. Suggest, yes, but not dictate.

So, that is my final word on the subject. I will continue to enjoy this forum and all the constructive tips from everyone which have taught me a lot and have made my garden a lot more interesting and lovely than it was, even if it has cost me a small fortune.

I would remove some of the old shoots completely and tie up the new ones in their place.
