Re: Chrysanths and gro-bags

Should be fine to take out the top. How far depends on how leafy they are down the tall stem as you must leave some leaves. It might also take more time for the flower buds to appear but your plants will be stronger. Good luck and hope you have a lovely show.

Re: Extinction

I found the program so interesting and enlightening. The program showed what damage has been done in just 50yrs. I agree that we should all make changes now and that things can be reversed. However, I also think that most people will carry on as they are. Many are not bothered with what is happening...

Re: TV Licence

Heard no more about mine . I have an e-mail which was headed Thank you for applying for your TV licence which I have to prove I contacted them, plus I spoke on the phone so must be a record of that. As far as I am concerned the problem is hopefully theirs to sort out.

An old English apple that is not seen much today. Looking up worcester pearmain it is described as having a mild strawbe...

Re: Little Women - 2019 film

I read the book and saw a very early film which I loved. I must say that I don't like most modernised remakes so wouldn't buy one. Such a shame when you settle down to a treat that you have been looking forward to. {hug}

Re: Have you stocked up just in case?

I am not stocking up but make sure I always have one back up of essential goods. I only have shopping delivered every 2 weeks so don't want to run out. Some tinned goods are still hard to get in my local supermarket.

Re: With an extremely heavy heart

Can't put into words how sorry I am. Your darling Mollie lived good age but whatever the age it is still like looking after child that has never grown up for 20yrs. A painful time for you Gwen, a pain that I still feel for my pets that I have lost so know how raw yours is. {hug} {hug} {hug} {hug} {hug} {hug}

Re: TV Licence

Received my forms for purchasing my TV licence last week and just set up my direct debit to pay monthly. Paying monthly doesn't cost any more and better to have the money sitting in my bank than the BBC's. I object very strongly, especially when people on pension top up or on other benefits get it f...

Re: Keeping busy during isolation

Looks as if you are keeping very busy Spreckly. There is always plenty to do in the garden and weeds growing non stop. Lovely that you have the company of Angel who must be so precious to you. Take care! X

Keeping busy during isolation

What have you all been doing to keep hands and minds busy? I started by doing some painting, then detoured to knitting toys. When I had my first surgery in April I was given lots of odd balls of wool from neighbours, bought a couple of Jean Greenhowe books and am knitting away. I have found homes fo...

Re: A Suitable Boy

I didn't watch it either. I watch very few dramas any more as I can't sit and concentrate on them any more. Even when relaxing I have to be doing something else.For people who did watch, it made a change to have something new after constant repeats.

Re: Thames severely polluted with plastic

I don't think we have any idea how much we are polluting this planet. So many things are polluted with plastic that we are unaware of. Not too long ago we were told how some bottled waters contain microscopic particles of plastic. What else? I can't understand why so much food is covered in plastic ...
