  • Morning all, from a wet Fife, light Rain, but steady, my new wee Rose Garden will be loving it. I got so many Roses, especially small Gift Roses, over the Year, and never do away with them, plant them into Pots, feed and water them, and they grow into lovely Bushes, then my Daughter gave me ‘Mum in a Million’, last Mother’s Day, the Scent, and…[Read more]

    And you have a great Day too Jane. x

    • Hi Tina :-) many thanks – a bit too hot – lots of thunderflies but no thunder!

    • Hi Jane and all….. Its so annoying when that happens Jane it make you wonder if its a bad batch of seeds…grrrrrr

      • Hi Sue :-) definitely a rotten batch as this is the second sowing :bad:

        • I think I had problems with some Franchie seeds once, but its hard to prove I suppose. Once I got my seed potatoes from Wyvale and I did complain as they were soooo small. they did give me a credit for more potato seeds the following year, so why not complain, you have nothing to lose :good:

    Can’t help it, something winds me up and off I go. Even when resting, am thinking of my next Project. I could say, it is because I can’t get out, but afraid then did even more ! lol :lol:

  • Morning all, we have, or had, Rain, bet those poor Plants are lifting their Heads up and gulping it all down. Of course it is not a nice Day, clammy and dull, the Forecast is more positive, so hope it is right. Got my first lot of Chutney made, and will probably make Raspberry Jam this Morning, thought my Raspberry Harvest would not be good, as…[Read more]

  • Morning all, from a muggy, Grey, Fife, such unpleasant Weather, neither one thing or the other. The Haar, is making it unpleasantly Damp, and Chilly Outside, while Inside, you are struggling for Breath, well, you are, if you are an Asthmatic, like me. Ian, made me a small Rose Garden, next to, but not that near, to Neighbours Fence, She is a…[Read more]

    • Morning Tina :-) if a thistle bothers her, then she hasn’t got much to complain about in my view, large or not! – But I like thistles ;-) Hope the day improves for you :-)

    • Hallo Tina, I totally agree with Jane … large thistles are gorgeous :-)
      HAGA :love: :rose:

      • Omg she needs to live next door to my neighbour where the fence has now nearly completely gone due to the brambles and everything else gone mad in her garden :confused:
        Just smile sweetly at her then ignore her ;-) :cute: :-)

    • I feel for you with the neighbour, as I am currently getting some passive-aggressive stuff from the Motorheads because of scaffolding and roughcasters.. Your neighbour sounds an utter pain in the neck, and I’d just be nodding to her from the distance so that I couldn’t hear her hum.

  • Dear Clickers, just popping in for a very quick Blether, as have People coming, well, Grandson, Son, Son in Law, and Friend. Need the Boys to shift a rather large Rose Bush, into what will be my small Rose Garden, it has definitely outgrown it’s Pot. and expect an Explosion of Blooms, once it settles in. Sorry have to run, but have more Chutney…[Read more]

    Don’t know what happened after my Brother, my Brain races ahead of my Fingers, well, that’s my Excuse, anyway, more likely to be old Age, and Insanitary ! x :lol:

    • son has large quantities of apples each year from large very old tree which went with the garden, he is into making cider and has used a lot of them this last 2 or 3 years for cider which is very drinkable – I just cadge some for chutney

    Morning all, I hope I have a free Day, but not sure if my Brother. Have watered copiously , and have planned a busy Day Indoors. Got to finish Chutney I started yesterday, the start of the Bottling, Jamming Season. Don’t know how I will deal with all the Apples, when they ripen, there are loads. When we were Kids, our Favourite Jam, was Apple…[Read more]

      Tina, you remind me of my friend, Maria, in that she is always cooking and baking the most delicious concoctions, which I often get to sample :good: HALD :rose:

    • I love mushrooms, Tina :good:

    Belated Greetings Clickers, had to go Outside earlier on, watered mine, and Neighbour’s Garden, as She is not well, could be the Heat, but She is Ninety, three Years older than me! The Birds are having a Field Day with my Raspberries, so knew I could not put off picking them, as I made my way to them, Mrs Blackbird, popped One in her Mouth, in…[Read more]

    • Afternoon Tina :-) you’re much too generous to the birds :lol: Hope your leg can be sorted when you go to the hospital. HAGE

    • It’s lovely when your bird friends are friendly … whatever the reason :good: :-)
      Yes, I’m fine thank you Tina … after a tired and lazy morning had a good afternoon gardening, then son [who once worked as a chef and really knows his onions] helped me to cook supper well and we all three watched France beat Belgium in the first semi-final ……[Read more]

    It was only a Splash, and has not been repeated, Jane.

    Morning Jane, if you are still on here, x and Morning all, never been so glad to see wet Roads outside, when I looked outside this Morning. Been raining through the Night, don’t think it has been much, and it has dried out now, but the very fact, that it has BEEN, is cheering. There was a Fire, and a bad One, at the Rubbish Depot, yesterday…[Read more]

    • Bet the air feels fresher too, Tina – you lucky woman. It’s a bit overcast here at the moment, which at least dulls heat down a bit. I am quite sure the doctor is very pleased by all the evidence of your industry – the garden, the cards, and the clincher is your home baking. Just open a tin of your homemade goodies and offer him/her a cup of…[Read more]

    • Morning Tina :-) lovely for you to have a splash of rain! Nice to have a good sort of stuff when you’re in the mood for it! enjoy the day!

  • Ambersparkle posted a new activity comment 1 week, 6 days ago

    Doctor, who knows me, and my Garden, specifically told me not to move Pots, I do a bit, but just wriggle them around. You are a naughty Girl. no more lifting.

    • good morning Tina :high-five: Think i won’t today…had another one when I got up this morning! :confused:
      Anyway, it’s still lovely out there so HAGD :love: :rose:

  • Ambersparkle posted a new activity comment 2 weeks ago

    That is not so good Anne, you will have to rest a lot today, sending Love and Hugs. Tina x :rose:

    • Hallo Tina :high-five:
      I shall do little but water GG today …did some big pot-shifting yesterday which may not have been such a good idea in the relentless heat :lol: Have a lovely day yourself Tina, and thanks for love and hugs :love: :rose:

  • Burnt Foliage on the Roses, the new Leaves are just frizzled.

    Morning all, hotter even that yesterday, never thought I would say I was fed up with the Heat, it is just too much. Having said that , I would never have grown the Outside Cucumbers, and Tomatoes, that are really ready to pick. Going to take it easy Today. Have a lovely Day, wherever you are , and whatever you are doing. Tina x

  • Ambersparkle posted a new activity comment 2 weeks, 1 day ago

    This Heat is really getting me down, Anne x

    • I am sorry Tina, :love: and I must say that I find it pretty exhausting too … not conducive to going outside for any length of time is it :confused: For once I would welcome a light breeze, and even tolerated the air-con in the car this week … a phenomenon that usually irritates me when blowing at me in my face!! :confused: :lol:
      Have a…[Read more]

    Very hard to enjoy the Company in this Heat, Jane, as my Brother is left with me, while She has a bit of ‘me’ Time, but he has D, and is getting very willful, normally, he will do what I tell him, but has started doing what he wants. Very hard to see someone you love like this.
