HELLO FORKERS!

Oh dear, silly me but I thought that's what the refresh was for!

Runnybeak you've just made me well up while reading your post aloud to OH. 

That's not a bad thing since I believe that a shared grief allows the one who passed to feel more warmth and love. Man or beast.

You caught a nerve too,  my son phoned late last night, inconsolable about the loss of his pet Cockatiel.

The shape we are, the breed, the height or not fur or flesh or feathers...who are we to judge their importance or relevance in this world? I am deeply sorry for your loss.

Verdun,  glad it went well

BL, hope it's nothing 

DD, you are magnificent

How bizarre that my earlier post is spamming itself?

I've bought most varieties from my not so local GC Fidgetbones although it's gone downhill since first opening back in the naughties.

The only Raymond Evison I have is Josephine  which I adore. I will check new varieties, its always been splendid and healthy 

My list to plant include Miss Bateman (large) Brunette x2 (just because i loved that one) Margaret Hunt, Wesselton and pope john II and nun's gift so far.

I really need something to soften my Paul scarlet rose in cream or green. I also have 3 cuttings hanging about sans labels

P.S bekkie...I would love Clematis Armandii for my Paul Scarlet rose, I don't even mind its vigorous because I want that and evergreen too! but internet mentions frost hardy is that right?

Omg, more spam-posts. Not my fault sorry!

Thanks for the tip Woodgreen, sadly I'm not a local to NF. I'm down south in Kent

I wonder if anyone has bought from Taylor's Clematis? I'm sure some of you have...they are quite established?

Just gonna check out Raymond Evisons

Re dieting, I guess we will burn off some excess as soon as Spring pops We all know hard work then!

DD thanks for treating the lonely pony and George, steady yourself old chap, plenty more fussing where that came from

Nothing better than a personal recommendation Dove

And finally punkdoc it will arrive, but brisk walks in the meantime is a golly good idea and another reason to own a dog

Oh well, day off today and its really gusty outside but also clear skies. We had our only serious snow shower yesterday, with the early ice flurry followed by the fat floaty stuff. I nearly burst a vein laughing at Flynn chasing the stuff. Surffice to say, it didn't lie

Talking of lying, I'm bath in the bath with my tablet, so before I drop it again ta ta for now
