Afternoon FORKERS

Not,quite as sunny but still very warm today

Haggled a discount on bed for my niece, used a discount voucher the date of,which had just  expired (but they accepted ) and claimed replacement/refund on bed bought nearly 3 years ago on one bought 2 years plus ago.  Feel quite chuffed.  Nothing in garden centre to tempt me

Yet to see gardeners world but pelargonium cuttimgs are not too difficult if kept on dry side in my experience.

There are a couple of nurseries on my route so I guess I will pop in ....however, I have so many good plants  already languishing in pots but as ??ou all know its difficult to leave without buying something. 

Hope everybody has good weekend, that issues get sorted and folk get well

Busy, eventful day

Had meeting with hospital reps about my mum. Good info to consider; put my feelings and ideas into the mix too.  Getting somewhere I think.

Bit fun too.  Caught guy trying to make off with someone's bag from waiting room near hospital  entrance.  quite clearly very frightened so told him to put bag back and disappear ASAP.  ( hope CCTV doesn't incriminate me but don't think anyone knew it was even taken)

Watering front lawn tonight .....no end in sight  to hot dry weather 

Fidget nice plants.  No place for them?  I'll have em   Which aconitum?  Mine have been great this year

Sorry Punkdoc I posted before yours appeared.  That's a worry for you and your mum. ,hope it's good news this time.  Being a bloke don't  do virtual hugs but wishing you all the very best 

Have to discuss the options for my mum later.  Not really looking forward to it ...it all seems so final, almost clinical.

Just brief look in but helloooooo folks 

Yellow theme Woody?  Helenium Double Trouble?  Yellow Honka dahlia? 

Bit  windy and mistyish with sun lurking 

Talk ...again.....of Cornwall getting independence or at least of devolved power.  How will England cope?
