Ive tried to share my daily gardening and both experience of gardening and yet when i try to read the threads later on in the day "my own efforts are not tobe seen?

So taking this into account and thinking the season has'nt really got going yet so what the hell any offers will come to when gardening really gets into action i cant imagen

So I'd just like to thank the few members who gave me a warm welcome and now I'll say goodbye and good luck

To those wanting to learn about one of the greatest hobbies a person can have no matter if they want to garden alone or as a member of a team,
Good luck to you all.

Now im off to find an active gardening forum.

Thanks once again . Wink

Just because you are not getting replies does not mean that your posts are not being read. Check out the numbers of replies and views per article. Plenty of people read only, you admitted to doing that yourself for some time before you started to contribute with your many and interesting articles.
This forum is indeed seasonal in its involvement by contributors and it will pick up again very soon as the seasons progress, it always does. The problem could be at your end if articles are not being displayed after you have written them.
The thread 'what did you do today' is huge, too big in fact and has been discussed here many a time. It has evolved into a general banter section which has many many sub divisions in it now and they are all mixed up which you may not have been aware of. The new version of this ........ 2017 is an effort by whoever started it to start it again but to be more on topic. You have come late to this and may not have realised what was going on and it could indeed look confusing to a newcomer. We were sort of promised a new system of dividing up the various sections some two years ago to make navigation easier but to date there have been no changes yet.
Keep on posting and getting involved, I for one do find your contributions interesting and the best part is that we get to understand it from a French perspective.

Another one bites the dust. There was no way she could have kept up the output from a standing start. With 3/4 posts per day I have read them but I don't know if she wanted a reply to every post. Anyway I told yea that post What did you do today would come back to haunt yea all... Laughing

I lived in a small village too, can be a lonely place. This is by Joe Wilson.
A VILLAGE


The Victoria plum-tree that we planted this year
Is now full of blossom that looks lovely from here
The creamy white flowers and the brightest green leaves
Makes beautiful colour as Springtime relieves.

The garden of Winter, this year so wet
Does blossom herald a ‘best Summer yet.’

It’s quite true of course that village life so snug
Can have a tendency to make one feel smug
But for years our’s has struggled, it now has no shops
And a pub that’s near closure though it still sells the ‘hops.’

We don’t take it lightly the community here
For we know we could lose it which would cost us all dear.

It’s not really the money though the costs would be great
But there’d be no Village Hall and no Summer Fete
No chats with our friends over stiles by the field
Nor any more eggs from the local chicks yield.

We don’t take it lightly the community here
And we will fight to keep it which will cost us all dear

There were 5 shops in our village. Last one remaining closed 3 months ago.

There were two petrol stations. Now there's none.

There was a Post Office. Now there isn't one.

And loads of people are now installing electric gates. My neighbour down the road calls them "the F. O. Gates." Smile Smile

I posted that as I feel Roxanne was lonely in the French Village, anyway we move on.
I cycled from Dursey Island to Leitrim Village along the Beara way or whatever all the time sticking to small booreens and avoiding dead ends. Unfortunately rural Ireland is in a bad way, shops closed down, small vilages boarded up, no post offices, local grocery stores replaced by cheap pop up sheds?? Local sports teams unable to field teams as there is no employment to keep youth at home they want to spread their wings and get out from the suffocating local village cant blame them there being that solider. Soon it will be only a country for old people and the keyboard ecologists who want to save us from ourselves god bless them.
Dropped into castletown bera over the weekend lots of tourists all the boats tied up, you cannot eat the scenery. In Ayeries only 20 people live in the village the rest are holiday cottages lots for sale and over priced to rent, if it was not for "falling for a dancer" it would never have made the map. If I was living in France I wouldn't be on here as I would try to integrate myself into the community I live in then I would have the same problems as now, everyone knowing your business, valley of squinting windows only difference different language.Níl aon tinteán mar do thinteán féin

We're assuming the said Roxanne is male - and not a female with a wife - but he/she certainly arrived like a tornado which, for someone not even from this country, certainly made me draw back a bit. I wondered what the motive was.

As for the sub-plot of village problems, it's the age old problem that people want things to be different - but don't want to change anything. It just doesn't work. As an example, we've got a fairly busy 'R' road that runs through the village but the only petrol station still insists on closing for lunch, and hasn't bothered to install a fast pump to encourage trucks to stop. It suits the elderly proprietor but will need to change its ways to survive long term. I could go on.....

Can I put this to bed. Roxanne is a man. Read between the lines in all posts.
