Photo-a-Day (Friday, 27th April, 2018)
In tanks and tubs like landing craft ('12th April'), ... speak to me, Poet, speak to me.
That once proud army is looking a little bedraggled Philip. The winter foe is dying hard.
I'm afraid so, Poet. I'll have a word with Ozy to see if he can take across a crate of National Growmore, the stuff should cheer-up the troops.
Although I'm not a gardener myself Philip,.....( my area being maintenance and logistics ), I understand that due to the high levels of nitrogen, potassium and phosphate etc. contained in ' guano ', that this is the stuff that Crooke village desperately requires in order to enrich the soil around the area. Now I just happen to be chummy with an old chicken drover who presumably has loads of the stuff on his hands ( and also on the soles of his wellies no doubt ). Being a personable sort, I'm reasonably sure he'd gladly drop a couple of tons down by the old coal tippler for you F.O.C..... If you'd care to contact him, his email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
At least you can paint the daffodils Philip and they will always look fresh in watercolour... I have! It's framed and hung in the kitchen.
Are you sure ! If it don’t grow with that soil ( bet I can lift it by hand ) and that light , then
blame the planters. Put something in the ground , care for if , it will grow. The most beautiful law of Nature is balance ! You respect me , I will return it hundred times.
Thanks Ozy. I contacted G.W. and we agreed that the suggested drop-off point will be ideal, as due to guano's high-nitrogen content, the said cargo would need considerable dilution.
We're in further agreement that returning the stuff to dry land, will need considerable manipulation.
Veronica. The harbinger of Spring, framed on your kitchen wall, in veils of Artists' quality watercolours - Excellent!
I bought Dutch Master about six or seven? years ago, and they're enjoying their third week, in prime condition.
It has a tall blue-green stem that supports its large flowerhead.
