Busy lizzie, yes I was Christopher.
I didn't really cause an upset seems the troll causing trouble recently did the same to me last year. He used a similar name to mine and I had to change my name, which proved not too easy to do. It was upsetting, frustrating and difficult. Recently it hapened to someone on this forum and i think i have been able to support him. I had great support from people on this forum who understood what had happened. Then I had no idea what these trolls did, now I'm wiser.
Anyway, busy lizzie, nice to know you

Yep Tina better days are on their way. What would be your ideal job then? Even in "sunny" Cornwall this winter weather is a bit depressing.
Spent afternoon volunteering at local food bank....people really are suffering at moment...
Gardening grandma, is that what fat club is about, eating chocs? Paradoxically, I pigged out on choc Easter eggs at food bank. Someone dropped them in for the "workers" and I had to eat my would look rude not to!

Alstroemeria (Peruvian Lily)

Posted: 26/03/2013 at 18:53
Rosa they can be slow from bare roots. I grew the so-called Princess lilies .just 3 varieties but they were wonderful in flower. Trouble is they become somewhat dormant in mid summer leaving a big gap in he border. To overcome this I dug them up to replant behind perennials that disguise this gap. Alstroemerias do spread so best where they can't "bully" their neighbours. The varieties I grew didnt seed .i grew hybrids...but still a bit thuggish

...oh sound like a mischievous scampy fellow.
Nigelcoad .....well, you're looking for a new name and you've given some clues. Maybe someone will come up with some suggestions.
Me? I'm hyper, serious, mischievous...always cracking silly jokes ( the more nervous i am the more assinine the jokes are) im outspoken but shy, passionate about matters and people dear to me, bit of a perfectionist ....although knowing I'm far, far, far from perfect. Get angry, often rowing, am opinionated, getting old but still think I'm young, and get relaxed with my plants. Tha, Tha, that's all folks!

Hey nut. ...I thought you were a "he"....better be more respectful,towards you from now on...ha ha
Tina I got you pretty well then. Verdun is my middle name from my legend of an uncle I never met but wish I had.
Rosa...Got you reasonably well too!
Dmball ..further to above, my uncle Verdun was named after that place Verdun for some reason. I know it was a bloody battle there. I like the name's not Vernon or Verdon, both of which are great names but I feel it carries something???
Palaisglide, I imagine a Len Goodman type...debonaire and cultured. How's that for sucking up? about you? Any info we should know about you? Your picture shows a fox so no clue there....or is there?
