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.

Just Googled David Cassidy, he certainly hasn't aged well! Shame, such a pretty young man, now looks more like that drunken ex footballer, can't remember his name.

Sorry to hear about your niece, Verdun, but as it was an old school colleage, maybe he was trying to do a Romeo and Juliet!

Hi Pam, just had another look at your video, your garden really is spectacular!

Can't help wondering though, don't you ever get that horrible weather with heavy rain that flattens everything (not that I wish it on you, heaven forbid!)?
