Probably the satisfaction of storing for the winter Lily Pily 

Morning all. Don't feel bad Hosta, we take strength from knowing that we are not alone

Big hugs for jo47, what a painful experience and Pat, Runny and others who can relate 

Relate being appropriate word considering those involved in our heartache are mostly relations. 

Ah well, onwards and upwards, today I am decorating

I've never been comfortable with revenge acts 

I tell people how I feel and leave it with them. But I did learn a lesson early in life that I taught my boys

The fastest route to disappointment is to put your expectations in someone else, so whenever I do a deed or help, I don't expect a return not even a a thank you.  If I get one, it's a lovely surprise 

It's raining 

Help needed!

@Crowfrombelow, I mean Katiecarnie, welcome and thank you for asking us humble folks for our input.

I don't have many particulars except that I do find the site extremely buggy, more so than other public forums  obviously that's why your here! 

I used to use the weather prediction but discovered it wasn't particularly accurate

Also, I have noticed that there are three kinds of members: the regulars, the floaters and the one offs. The regulars have made some extremely good suggestions but concerning the one offs that visit to ask a gardening question, so much time is wasted with having to ask where they live and what soil type they have. Perhaps we could have a question facility to fill in the details with drop boxes? 

Sorry if this is too much to ask. I like some kind of gender assignment to the avatars and perhaps a location tag so I would be Wintersong Kent?  Or Wintersong UK. We have an few internationals 

The search facility does need refinement and also the glitch on the what to do this week page that doesn't show next week  (I like to peek )

Good luck with your mammoth task, thanks for taking some time into it's improvement and I won't hold it against you if a suggestion technically can't be done 

Enjoy

Forgot to say 

Went to B&Q today to look at wallpaper and bought 7 white salvia for 3 quid a pop and 3 trailing rosemary for 2 quid each 

I just about managed to squish them all in my backpack and bags with one salvia poking out the back zip but lost it on the way home because I didn't feel it fall out 

Never mind,  I've still got 6 to plant a drift

Not nice hosta 

Same thing happened to me years ago when I found out that my brother's daughter was having a children's birthday party but nothing was said to my son of the same age and the thing was, we were really close! or so I thought.

I purposefully delivered her birthday present the day of party to give them a last chance and then refused to speak to him again...more than a decade later I'm still not talking. 

Probably worse still was that family functions were organised without me thereafter and I now only see my parents regularly and older brother sometimes but more importantly, I have three amazing sons and a OH who is the love of my life so I really haven't missed much

Well, as if by magic my voice is returned to me
No smilies for the naughty girl it would seem
I've been reading back but wasn't able to comment, only found out how to fix it when I noticed the particular thread. ..

re Astilbes, Panda I'd give you my three adult plants if I lived nearer, I'm fed up with watering them ! Really fed up. Shouldn't keep Astilbes in my sandy soil but I bought them before I knew what they like
SAD FACE WINK WINK someone give me my smilies back SAD FACE SAD FACE TONGUE OUT
