MORNING FORKERS

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!

Hi, sounds like a twisted willow to me, see links below:

Sorry, this one is in French, but pictures should be clear

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!

Hi all, just caught up with all the posts on Morning thread. Hope all the injured are feeling better! Had to laugh about the cats bringing in presents. Our calico cat Peggie is one of those that brings mice and voles in during the night and lays them out for us. Sometimes the mice get away and end up under the furniture but for some reason once that happens she looses interest.

I think Verdun is a nice guy too. Reminds me of someone on another Forum!
