Mandy have a look at this site it has a pic of your rose on it.

Mandy don't buy one for your front garden!!!!!!! You already have one so pull up a bit from the bottom and you should find some roots on it. Just plant that spig and you will soon get another bush for nothing. Thats what I did with my damask rose from suffolk.

OR wait till sept. Cut a pice off your bush about a foot long (or a few bits) and cut the top slanted and the bottom straight just under a leaf jpoint on ripe wood. Put them in the ground or in a big pot and bury them about 6 inches deep and place in the shade. By spring you should see new growth on the tops which means they have rooted. There all for nothing!!!!!!!! It works.

Just as I'd finished a load of washing to put out the heavens opened here and we had a real good soaking for about half an hour. Saved me a job of watering.

I found a rellie transported to Australia in the 1700s in MIL's family today. He left a wife here with 9 children. He then had another 6 children with another woman who was also transported. He must have come back here because he was transported again in the early 1800s!! All that stress in his life and he lived to be 97!!

Morning All,

Well we had some rain last night but not sure how much. The road is dry so I don't think it was very much at all. We have grey skies at the moment and then a bit of sunshine. A weird day really.

Donkey day for me today.

Hope Jane and Chris are having a nice rest.

Love to Maureen as we are thinking about her and her mum.

Afternoon All,

Ahhhh, poor little Jake......I bet he will be full of chat about it when he gets back! How's the bathroom plumbing coming along Mandy?

Dull and dry here and much cooler. Been to the dentist this morning and she found a tricky filling that needs doing below the gum on a tooth with a big filling she daren't disturb!! She said it will be fun to do.....I wasn't laughing!!

OH brought my smalls (don't laugh) off the line a while ago......sniggering again!! He reckons they were signalling 'man over board' this time as they were flapping in the breeze!!

Off to do some errands now .......


Frank Report 14 Jun 2010 15:50

I am watch you all,!!!

Prepared dinner for tonight, and minced a load of cold beef, will do Cottage pie for tomorrow, and I think there will be enough for Spag. Bol. for Wednesday, two easy meals for me.
Brightened up now, sunshine, and quite warm. OH is ironing as I sit here. I think I might attempt the back lawn, it looks like it needs a trim. then I will go back to resting.
Had a better night last night. Took extra pain killers before turning in.

Thanks for cake receipe, don't know if I will try it or not. Looks a bit sickley for me !!! I haven't got a sweet tooth like you lot.
Hope J & C are getting along ok with their break, didn't know Jane could Sail, Hope she dosn't fall in !!!!

Well I am back from shopping and all unpacked.

It has turned into a nice day after this mornings grey skies and the sun had shone most of the day.

Bought two little glass night light holders in pink and green for the garden. I hope my SIL comes and stays soon as that seems to be the only time I use them when we are sitting out in the garden in the evenings with our bottle of red and chatting away.

OH has finished filling in the old flower bed in the side garden and sowed it with grass seed. That will make it easier to keep clear with just having to mow it.


Annx Report 14 Jun 2010 19:30

Mandy, your bathroom is looking good though......I love the basin and the big mirror on the wall. You made me laugh about surrendering........I'll remember that for when he makes the next wisecrack!! lol.

Mel, I see he's getting plenty done with the digger!! Good idea to make things a bit easier where you can and he does enjoy his mowers too!! Night lights do look pretty in the garden don't they.


Frank Report 14 Jun 2010 23:08

Mandy, What type of potato do you get. We have been having Jersey Royals, but i'm not impressed with the last lot. Still looking for English.

Didn't do the lawn this afternoon, don't want to upset my ribs, see how I feel tomorrow.

Mel, It looks like you are going to get the best of the weather tomorrow, we are in the cloud again. Roll on summer !!!!!


Tracey Report 15 Jun 2010 01:03

Morning All------Yes Mandy it good and you have the honey in the whites just like a mouth full of soft candy cotton Trust ME---

Morning All,

Sunshine and white clouds at the moment.

Shirl I don't like the sound of that egg white and honey. As Mandy said YUK!!!!!

Frank the best potatoes to buy are Charlotte. I don't like Jerseys now either.

I have a lot of tying up to do today inthe tunnel and I shall have to give it a good water.

Mel Fairy Godmother Report 15 Jun 2010 11:05

Where are you all please?

Frank don't go doing those lawns untill you know you are alright to do them. We don't want anymore mishaps!!!!......................................


Frank Report 15 Jun 2010 11:05

Mel, I always think of Charlotte's as salad Potatoes. but must be better than Jersey's. Will try them.

Shirl, I'll give you SHEEP. Where can I get one that won't ruin the garden ????? Are they dirrerent in Canada ?????

Bit cloudy here, but must get the lawn cut. before any showers. Electric and water don't mix !!!! especially for me !!!! It will make my hair stand on end. Whats left of it LOL

Mel Fairy Godmother

Mel Fairy Godmother Report 15 Jun 2010 11:20

Oh glad your about Frank.

Yes Charlotte are a salad pot but they are nice with other things as well. I grow these ones always if I remember to buy the tubers at the right time. Think mine could be ready for digging in the tunnel but I also like them to get bigger so I can roast them.
