The copy of LCL that got passed around the back of our classroom fell open automatically at the 'right' pages - no need to search!
At least it could be bought openly, in a bookshop, without state censorship.
On the other hand, the Irish censor was directly responsible for introducing me to the dangerous writings of John McGahern. When I saw a copy of The Barracks in Hall's bookshop in Enniskillen, I remembered that I'd heard it was banned in the 'Free State', so I bought it to find out what the fuss was about.

Those pages weren't stuck together?

Kindredspirit, your garden has matured beautifully over the years. It is a real credit to you and your hard work. I only wish I had the gardening knowledge and design ability, time and money to do something similar.

Well done.

Good to see you back online, jd. We need a few more northern voices on here!😃
I agree KS's garden is brilliant and I'm envious myself. I see it as inspiration, though, and evidence that hard work and persistence will get me a long way, too.
I liked your fishy story - I grew up in Fermanagh and loved to fish as a boy - never caught that much but that didn't matter! I used to go to Creevey Pier near Rossnowlagh with my dad to fish for mackerel (with more success).

For anyone who likes loads and loads and loads of pictures, I've put up a Farcebook page with pics of the garden. It's only for pictures.

Thank you.
Sigmund Coolwater.
Smile Smile

P.S. Give us loads of "likes" on the page. Smile I'm putting up quite a lot of pictures for each month. There'd be far too many pics for an ordinary forum, which would overwhelm it. I'm still putting up pics each month here, though, as this is my best loved vehicle for news on the garden. Smile Smile

Some ferns I got recently and to be planted in the next month or two.



One of them is named "Godzilla" and grows to a width of 1.8 metres!

Recognise most of them. Is that a maidenhair fern in the middle? If so, is it hardy?

Really jealous, they are lovely healthy-looking plants.

Lovely ferns, KS, I can't wait to see what you do with them.
Sue, I got some lovely ferns earlier in the year from Mike Keep of www.loveferns.com when I was at Bloom. They were very good quality and not too dear. I'm growing them on for use in part of the garden I'm redesigning. The idea is:alpines in the open, sunny parts and ferns in the shady bits. Ferns grow really well for me, both cultivated and wild.
I got Japanese Painted ferns, Japanese Tassle fern, Crested Hart's Tounge fern and Dryopteris Seiboldii

Dryopteris Erysothora.
Japanese Painted Fern, Athyrium Nip. Regal Red & Godzilla.
Cheilanthes Tomentosa. (Lip fern)
Dryopteris Seiboldi
Adiantum Venustum
Polystichum setifolium, Plumoso Densum.
Japanese Rosy Buckler ferns. Prolifica & Radiance.

Looking forward to Godzilla doing its thing. Smile Smile

The Adiantum Venustum is the Himalayan Maidenhair fern, Sue. Well spotted. I hope it's hardy. Sad

and, Guy, all these came from Mike Keep too. (Blarney in Bloom.)

Perhaps the clue is in the name - Himalayan, hope so
