HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: Today at 09:17

Good morning folks.  Bit damp but quite warm 

Woody....my style too.  Exciting planting up fresh border.  When I do I think it will be so much better than the replaced one.  Usually it is but it takes the second season for me to tinker again for "perfection" 

Don't let autumn get to you MrsG. I'm in the  same boat because so much seems much like it was in summer and I'm loathe to cut it all down.  We will all catch up so relax

The thing about council tax is that too many on the council are overpaid and we see money wasted time and again but to keep services for vulnerable people we should pay  more council tax.  The Council has cut care support for those with learning difficulties down here ...affecting their families too.....and this cannot be right

Tootles...pretty near the mark 

Runnybeak  Maybe!  It just shows the sense of humour here.  Nice!  

 

Slugs and snails

Nematodes will be useless now.  Too cold.  Use in spring.

Pellets or hand picking slugs for now but dahlias etc soon be over anyway

what color is your garden

Posted: Yesterday at 19:45

Still loads of different colours but purples and blues and hues from the grasses are dominant I guess

I could make an educated guess but there are so many similar varieties. 

I anticipate next year it will be taller too so it's prob a tall variety which would narrow it down a little.  Looks nice tho Kev ....

Hiya Stacey.  Agree with earlier comment that you are a real fighter.  Convinced you  will win this round too. ,  Didn't do great with chillis this year but have learned a bit to improve next year....with your advice of course 

Was going to sell my old iPad but someone has claimed it...for free!  Ha ha.  Dont really mind

Runnybeak, I'm pretty tall, pretty athletic I guess, no to looking out of,the windows.  Hands in pockets?  Yes I guess I often do.  Glasses?  For reading.  Neighbours fearing me?  Ecky thump!  Hope not but I do speak out, argue and confront at times (if I,think I'm right ) but I think generally I'm reasonably well liked (?) 

DELIGHTED Stacey is tuning in and laughing at/with us 

Interesting links with plants Bekkie ..... Partly right but need plants to look happy and healthy or they are gone.  Your  "fiery temper"?  I would have said that about,you Bekkie ....but only in the  nicest way of course   However, I would have said a woman with spirit. 

Lily, I can identify with being in one's own world .......like my own space at times.  Yes, a good place to be sometimes
