Talking of ctting trees back, my mission for today is to finish cutting the hedge back. It is mostly the dreaded leylandii (planted not by us but about 30 years old) It's not too bad if kept small. There is honeysuckle and clematis montana going through it so looks a bit wild but quite pretty.

Good to see Verdun back. I'll have to fight for a slice of cake now.

Same here Pam, ours are about the same age, were here when we moved in and I hate them, but at least they block the view from the road. As my borders are mostly along the hedge and their roots grow out at least a meter, I'm always surprised that what I have planted there manages to grow!

Glad to see you too, Verdun!


Ohh, where are my manners, good morning everyone!

Nope, didn't work, oh well, wasn't so important anyway, and definitely not rude! Just quoted something KEF said about no alalrm clock. Looks like it didn't like the quote.

Punkdoc, it would help if you could name who sent you a nasty PM, maybe then we could get rid of them once and for all. I hope you have informed the Moderator. This is really getting ridiculous! I agree with you Stacey, if I get one all hell will break loose!

Serious! Really

Was it really 1961? can,t think how I remembered that I would only have been 5.Was the Rag Trade the one where someone shouted "everybody out"?

How about Emergengy Ward Ten? with Richard Chamberlain I think.

Apparently there was a second version of the Rag Trade between 1977 and 1978, with a different cast, didn't see that though.

What is it? (Before I chop it down!)

Serious! Really

Good Evening FORKERS

Evening Forkers, hi Brumbull. Property you're looking for sounds interesting, would be great to have a big plot to redo to your own taste. I would love to live in a little thatched cottage with a cottage garden, but from what I've seen they are expensive, not to mention the insurance. Oh well, one can dream!

What are you and Alberto having for dinner tonight? OH away visiting his uncle in retirement home, so am supping on my own on a tandoori spiced chicken leg with roast potatoes and peas.

What's the best way to shade a greenhouse?

Only if you wanted to grow plants in the dark

Haha, another smart fart! I doubt if covering the roof would make a greenhouse dark, they do have sides as well!

Good Evening FORKERS

Morning Brumbull, wrong thread I know! "Ignored" MM ages ago, but think we're starting to get paranoid about WUMs! How is the property search going? Anything good? What sort of property are you looking for?
