Camera corner sounds great David.   Maybe.......maybe .......the odd tip or comment about a picture too. Ok, it's a garden forum but already it's more than that.  It's what we make it.  Look forward to camera corner

Worst Winter ....... .?

Windy old day here today. 

Sorry folks but I'm far from convinced of climate change. 5 years or so ago the experts said we will be having DRYER weather because of climate change....of course we were having dry weather at the time.  Now we will have wetter weather because of,climate change.  Experts are often narrow thinking, focused people intent on convincing others of their thinking.  Vested interests control what we should say and think.   To deny climate change is outrageous.  I remember my parents talking of us going into an ice age.  The experts then were saying that.  The experts talk of evolution and so many millions of years......deep down we know they don't know.  They GUESS.  How we all laugh when the experts are hoodwinked......remember the crop circle hoaxes and how angry the experts were when shown up to be very silly people

Now, autumn?  Yes it is a comin

Hiya Matty.  Dont you feel guilty when you disturb a toad,like that?  I find myself saying "sorry old fellow" and quickly try to cover him up again.  

All that work you got big muscles .

Obelixx,  good timing for me to read your view on those varieties.  If you could  recommend your favourite which one would it be?

Serious! Really

Seriously lily?  Yes you will need to turn the volume down.  My singing is AWFUL.  I am loud.

Punkdoc.  I agree totally.  Brum, it's down to you.  You did say you would agree to the single FORKERS thread for good reasons.  And the change was made when you weren't here. .? And it was voted favourably on?  Right now it's isolating everyone. I stick to the new one because that's how most people voted.  I would like to chat to everyone on one thread..........que sera sera....but I actually have to skip morning and evening FORKERS to avoid being compromised.  

I will pm you Brum to hopefully agree something 

Yes pottie, the stuff washed up on the beaches is alarming.  Haven't seen it on mine but will keep my dog off for a while

Look, if the storms come they come.  I am not convinced they will be too bad.  This past week the forecast was dire but we have had 2 fantastically sunny days. We will survive whatever happens folks so don't worry.
