HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 05/06/2015 at 18:14

My youngest son and OH live on what they cook themselves. I had twenty years of doing that job for my family, mostly cooking from scratch to feed my house full of men. I taught my two oldest to cook from scratch as i wanted to give their OHs the gift of a man who knew his way round the kitchen.

I hated it so much and the last 15yrs I've been eating different to them. Once a month-ish we do a special meal for each other, and usually something we are both eating on a sunday. but it's my choice, no pressure, no hungry faces waiting in line. They don't mind and it teaches the youngest to get his own 

Gorgeous sunny day here after mid-day thunderstorm rolled past. Feeling tired again today, working the weekend

What a tremendous effort sir! Good luck keeping it at bay.

I've noticed some in a garden at the end of the road, about 200yrds from my front door. The current residents have no pride in their property and none of the neighbours between them and me can be described as keen gardeners. I don't know how it travels but I reckon it's only a matter of time

As a general rule, prune after flowering unless there is risk of frost. If you're really not sure then don't prune at all and the worst that could happen is a larger plant than you want

 I started with a single plant that was known as Mrs Perry, salmon pink flowers which have since multiplied and changed colour to include baby pink with thick stems and orangey red of a slender stature, seen here
