MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 23/07/2013 at 07:11

Morning chicky and dove, I see the kitchens are at it again, can't be bothered to report them any more, am just ignoring.

Doctors this morning, blood test and hip x-ray this afternoon, general overhaul!

33-35C expected today, think I'll move to the cellar, can hardly keep up with watering.

A swimming pool would be more useful than a pond at the moment, Dove!

I wouldn't cut off the foliage, let it die down naturally. The following RHS site gives good information:

Good luck, they really are beautiful!
