  • Evening all. Work today, and sorting various afterwards indoors so no gardening done today

    Oh, other than watering the houseplants - I seem to be bought an orchid at least once a year at the moment so have them dotted everywhere, lol

    • Good Morning All My but this is hard work getting on here. I wonder how much longer it will take to get things running properly? Brighter weather today, but rain is forecast here. Have a good day

      • Morning, guys.

        Bright here this morning and quite chilly again. And guess what? No builders. Maybe they'll come later... she says optimistically.

        Other than that. All good. Though still deaf, of course. I'll let you know when that changes. Glad to have given you all a bit of a laugh or grimace, as the case may be.

        Good news about your kidneys, CG. Only a small improvement, but an improvement nevertheless.

        So, on with the day. Work calls. Better get on with it. I'll need the money for the builders (when they eventually turn up).

        Have a good one, everyone.

          • Good morning all,
            A bit of a dull start but its picking up nicely.
            No rain forecast here so off out to the park for my walk.
            Gave a good day all.

            And when your back stops aching,
            And your hands begin to harden.
            You will find yourself a partner,
            In the glory of the garden.

              • Mornin n'alln'all
                Late on board today so just about to have brunch.
                Eggs...anyone know what to do with 6 dozen eggs? Looks like I have. Mammouth baking and cooking day ahead soon

                Shortie-I'm an orchid collector too. Not intentionally but I always buy a couple each time I go to IKEA. Such good value for money not just because they seem to be half the price of anywhere else I've seen them for sale but as they flower so long
                At the moment I have 16 plants -none in flower but alive and kicking ( well not kicking -just sat sitting there)
                They seem to be the one plant I have trouble killing off!

                • Morning, I like an Orchid, they seem to thrive on neglect, so even I haven't killed this one we've had for over 3 years now. 9.1 was the overnight temperature in the greenhouse, so a lot warmer and stuff is growing before my eyes.

                  If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

                    • Flo...no announcement yet on the upgrade but there is something major happening soon. No timelines given but fairly soon.

                      Have you noticed a few changes, bit by bit ( *polishes mod banner...) ...and other irritating things being resolved?
                      (Looks like we'll be getting better smileys soon too-I noticed a few of our more favourite ones have come back.)

                      Yeh, it's the speed which is our major concern but at least we can see things are being worked on.
                      Just got to hang on in there -it's still ongoing.I'm sure it will be brill when finally sorted
                      (I'll start hoarding champers shall I?)

                      • Thanks, Nicos. Maybe we should have a special celebration one-night only at the Gardeners' Rest.

                        Speed is an issue. Even clicking like seems to take forever to register. But at least there's light at the end of the tunnel.

                        • Oh my knitted swimwear . Pleased I missed out on that phase
                          Eggs. Love eggs ..just had poached eggs on crumpets

                          Cakes and champers sounds a great idea for when things finally get sorted . We surely need a party for that.
                          thanks for keeping us updated.

                          Right . Going to go to vets for their usual tick meds and wormers.

                          Ah , this didnt post...been out and now back with tagetes
                          Cuppa hot choc then I will get changed and go "mucking" (as my OH calls it)
