A waiting game

A waiting game

For whom do the bells toll? I think for the tree ferns, but I wait and watch. Oh happy St. George's day to you lot, hope that it was good for you.

Really hope the game goes in your favour.

Clara Clara 23 April 2010 22:28:24

Hope they come back is it 3 or 4 you have there ?

Jacinta D Jacinta D 23 April 2010 22:29:09

Or 30?

Deborah Deborah 23 April 2010 23:15:39

Please don't remind me Jacinta!

Jacinta D Jacinta D 23 April 2010 23:17:04

oops. Too late. Sorry for your losses, Deborah. Really! And there was I giving out about losing my one and only which cost €60

Rachel Rachel 23 April 2010 23:17:13

Surely if they're not rotten in the central furry bit, they will come back! Spring will be just a bit later this year.

Myrtle Myrtle 23 April 2010 23:28:23

Hope they survive, they are magnificent.

Deborah Deborah 23 April 2010 23:32:25

Rachel, do you think that a kind of bubbling, fermenting sludge in the crown of the plant might constitute rotten? If so then that more or less includes all of ours :(

Jacinta D Jacinta D 23 April 2010 23:34:20

Aw shi...... Will you replace them?

Rachel Rachel 23 April 2010 23:35:42

Deborah, at least you've kept your sense of humour. Fermenting? Is there bootleg in the making?

Rachel Rachel 23 April 2010 23:43:13

Big meany. But I don't blame you. I'd do the same!

Deborah Deborah 23 April 2010 23:44:19

I just figured that the cost of a tree fern more or less equals the cost of a meal out for the two of us. As we are both vegan now, meals out are a thing of the past. Sooo it seems to me that I need to be compensated for my loss, and what better a way than to get a few new tree ferns. Martin, are you listening?
