HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 13/06/2014 at 20:27

My post registered late for some reason.  Being an unedikated Cornishman I can't fathom anything!  

Still scorching here.  Just took my dog....he is now puffed out 

KEF, yes,  joked a bit with the nurses but no buns   However, my mum's friend is on the mend albeit very thin and frail.

My niece's boss is giving her a hard time for giving in her notice,she was very upset and I feel like intervening.  However, she has to toughen up a bit now and deal with a bit of aggro.  She expects me to sort everything and come up with wonderful solutions.  

On way back from hospital I called in on my fav local nursery.....got another ( new to me)leucanthemum and 3 double white argyranthemums......all with discount,of course   All planted as I knew exactly where they were to go.  No more plant buying now...Ive still got lots of plants in pots looking for homes.

HELLO FORKERS!

Wintersong.....always good to,have a rant   Safety valve and all that   You seem to have had more than your fair share of bad luck there. You are a lady of spirit clearly who speaks her mind.

I am a "speaker up", to put it mildy. Often then I get goodwill voucher for my inconvenience. 

My niece is getting a hard time from her employees because she handed in her resignation today.  Would like to intervene....of course I wouldn't......but I also understand her employees not being happy she's leaving.

Its bloomin' hot."  Must be 25 but prob more than that in my walled garden.

Roof off the car Punkdoc.....lovely. Always had convertibles and hardly ever had roof up.  Fun motoring 

Those lovely 'perenial' foxgloves being touted

You did better than I did break.

My illumination pink lasted 18 months....beautiful non stop flowers all summer.  Meant to divide in autumn but forgot .  Think the wet winter did for them   My feeling is they are more biennial than perennial but if divided annually and potted will be "perennial" that way

Morning everyone.

As Im sure it is with you the sun is already very warm   And lots more to come

Not kept up to date properly so it seems a bad thread is about.  Will check,it out but I hope nobody is hurt by it. The forum is so strong now it can withstand any odd spot of bother.

Will take my mum to see her friend in hospital later .....will cheer both of them up 

Enjoy the summer folks 

Where's my tidy gene?

Do things as necessary...pruning, for example, after flowerimg enables jobs to be done individually.  Also if done annually pruning is easy amd quick.  

I tend to do stuff in a frenzy.........whizz around the lawns, staking,weeding, everything is done fast.  

Mulching is a great way to minimise weeding.  Pinching out plants, doing the so called Chelsea chop, etc., enables plants to be grown without the work of staking. Hoeing in the veg patch on a dry ....best on sunny...day quickly eradicates weeds.  

Grow perennials instead of annuals.....much less work and more economical. 

Not a once a week blitz guy.......
