Good Evening FORKERS

Thank you for the warm welcome back, happy gardening. I'm painting tomorrow  

Good Evening FORKERS

Evening everyone,

I'm back online, the computer crashed about 2 weeks ago, just after I posted I was going to take a break, perhaps it was a blessing in disguise. Contemplated getting a laptop but the choice was huge, couldn't decide which to get so had the hard drive repaired instead. Hadn't realised how much time was spent in the evenings on the computer, I've had loads of free time. Garden has had lots of attention with the longer evenings.   

...and I've been so fed up waiting for the weather to warm up so started painting and decorating indoors, the basement is currently getting a white over and I've started cycling again.

Not caught up with all the postings, have I missed anything. There seem to be lots of new posters.

Nice to be back

I finally got an invite to be with the in crowd but rather like the out crowd

BEES

Will check out the bee friendly sites but saw my first bumble bee in the garden at the weekend. Was so pleased, there were about 4 different species last year.

 

Nearly the weekend ;-)

...smug smile... had 5 days left of AL from last year so took two Fridays off, including today and have a week following the May bank holiday off work

Added bonus, weather today was cracking here in the NW

What's the weather like in your area?

A nice sunny day here, blue skies and white cloud with no wind.

Plastic GH is full to bursting with germinating seeds. Mooli's enjoying the cool weather, sown only last week, several rows of seedlings have come up, under glass in a raised bed. Trying three different varieties this year, going for different colours...red, white and black.

Evening all. Home late this evening so just catching up on things.

Ever so pleased, just checked the heated propagator and all but one cucumber seed has come up. Have sown courgettes and squash this evening. Thinking ahead, does anyone know how you would cook spagetti squash.

Some of the plants which were potted up yesterday have gone over to damping off, should have waited till their roots were a bit more developed, some were still very tiny, never mind patience is a virtue, will wait longer before potting up the next batch.

I've some very dainty dwarf tulips which came into flower today. Not at all like your traditional tulips, leaves are the same but flower heads are more a cross between a daff and tulip without the sticking out bit on daffs. They've produced 1 - 3 flower heads per stem. 

What's the weather like in your area?

Warm and sunny today. Did loads in the garden.

Oooh - Frank - Having never been to the races before, it could have been a disaster, I was thinking, jeans, t-shirt and four seasons coat. So pleased after discussion with two older brother's...I bought a new outfit...did my nails and had hair done on Friday....

Had such a good time may do ladies day next year... 

 

What has happened???

On a lighter note there is another exclusive club  which Verdun and I are members of, it's a club with no face but you do need to have brown hair and wear a blue T-Shirt

Was just leaving, will get my coat.

 

What has happened???

Posted: 07/04/2013 at 20:47

It would appear I'm one of the 'out crowd' as I was never invited in with the 'in crowd'.

That is appalling Verdun to be asked to disown a particular member publicly, can't image anyone who posts on here who deserves that kind of treatment, if people are not happy with a poster they can post direct to the people who run the site.

Like you Pam, I joined the forum several years ago and like the easy way we can interact with like minded gardeners. I don't go on face book or twitter.

If this site does close and you find a good one do post me a PM would be happy to join you and that goes for anyone in the out crowd. And on that note I'll put on my coat.
