Hello folks - a very tired person here - exhausted from excitement at seeing Touchwood aquilegias at the weekend, staying up late partying, listening to amazing guitarist, getting home late last night and having to go to work this morning - think I'm going to be tired all week
Thanks little Ann.
GG- now you do need another hol!!
Have to start on the prep for relocating the shed so moved a berberis this afternoon. A laurel's next on the 'needs to move' list along with the pieris I rescued which is going to my nephew's new build house along with a tumble drier.
That doesn't need digging up from the garden though.....
Sorry KEF- I could do with nut's services for my shed when she's finished all hers!
I'll supply the brushes and paint nut...and maybe a cake...
Off to bed now. Night all. Sleep well.

I live near Leominster, Malvern. Love Hampton Court especially the amzing veg garden. The only time I've ever really been excited about veg garden display Hi Matty...sorry had to quote this from Morning Forkers thread. Veg garden wasn't looking very good at all when we went. No rain for so long had taken its toll but could see what it would have looked like. Have promised myself to go up there when Malvern plant show on. You live in a beautiful part of the country

I know. And Malvern show is plantaholics paradise.
Hurray, I've got the rest of the week off.
The gardens all wet, so I should be able to get the fork in tomorrow.
OH is cooking dinner.I figure I grew the taters , courgettes and beans and picked them so he can cook them,as I've been at work all day and he hasn't.
Rained all day, but sun out now.
Only GH watering required - should be quicker than the normal ritual. Then to catch up on the Tatton shows on iPlayer before they disappear. I know most of you thought they were not much good, but if it gets a plant or garden on the screen, then I will watch it !
Evening! Quite right, Chicky! And quite right, Fidget!
Absolutely no gardening today! Hope to get Mr GG to water pots and under pergola later. Determined, in fact!
Lost nothing at all in Fat Club today. Could be worse!! Visited SIL, who looked as though the end was near today, but she perked up amazingly while I was there. Seems her low ebb was a build up of painkilliing drugs, since she's on lots of morphine, and she was coming out of it. We had a nice chat!
Hi all, just a quick goodnight and hope all are well.
Not my usual silly self tonight, hard graft at Mum's and can't stop thinking about tea drinker's post about "neighbour cutting my hedge". I so wish I could win the lottery to fund legal fees, what a nasty so & so. I so hate people being bullied and not being able to help them in any way.
H says to be thankful that one of our neighbours just verbally bores us about once a week no harm in him, just needs to chat.
Evening all, been raining a bit of the day waterbutt filling up nicely and plants likeing the drink
Had a trip today to get some free goddies from gumtree some large stones and plant pots had help of dad and mum and the man with the stones to get them into the boot of the car all put in on front garden for now till they get places somewhere suitable. great what others give away free
Got to have CAKE today so yum yum very nice
Chicky stomach not to bad still sore a bit but more back pain so heat packs on to help, any garden show is good for me, must wach iplayer for Beechgrove that was on Sunday and I missed it, Alan T on TV soonish so will be nice to watch
Where has Hollie hock gone not been on here for a bit - now missing her in put, I must say my false sunflower is still ok growing nicely
Nice one figetbones you have grown them all that is hard task to do itself
Sounds about right fidget!
If only I could get my little darlings to do the same...still...oldest got the metposts out with a lump hammer and the pickaxe so she's done her bit to help! Dishwashing duties for youngest.
Glad FClub wasn't too horrific GG. You must have worked off your KFC then!
Having tea and bikkie myself just now. I didn't get a lot done in garden today, apart from attacking the laurel, as the rain came back on, but could do with a little break from it all.. At least I don't need to water either.
Hope everyone's had a good day too and not got too wet.
Evening all. Yes where is Hollie Hock?
It has rained all day here. Saw daughter again Was lucky and she bought me some hardy gerbera for the window boxes so want to get them planted tomorrow.
Watching Mr T . I do like the program but dreadto think how much the instant gardens cost.
Have a good evening all
Only when I did the pond this morning FG, in my nightclothes. Soon dried. Apart from that put out washing, which I must go and get in before it rains again, and did nothing. Felt very lethargic.
FB, wish I had someone to cook my meal - any offers anyone? Daughter can't cook and DIL not very good either, so to be polite, I always say I would rather get myself something. Have to be careful what I eat anyway.
Kef, know just how you feel. It saddens me to read about some of the problems other posters have with their neighbours. At least my problem is only cannine ones and I can shout and tell them to shut up. Well, perhaps not so politely as that. Owners still talking to me. You sound a bit down so hope a good night's rest bucks you up.
Gardengirl, sorry to hear that you are still not 100% and do hope you perk up soon. Has your problem been diagnosed so you know what you're dealing with.
Half watching AT. Now that's a pond.
Just edited this to say Hi Bev. Hope you're OK.
Hello folks - we had soft rain for a couple of hours this afternoon - that'll green the lawns up and get them growing again - they'll need mowing any minute now
I'm not doing any watering this evening - I sat on the sofa and OH cooked supper
Quite agree, Potty. If I could afford that kind of hard landscaping, and new plants that large, I'd be a great garden designer myself. Lots of problems are solved if one can arrange the pots until it all looks great. Visualising things from scratch is a lot harder. Still like the programme, though.
KEF I'd echo what Tina said re tea drinker's thread. I've posted there too and it is just such a depressing situation for the family. I feel a bit helpless too - wishing I could do somethng practical to help. Having people on here to turn to makes a big difference though. I've found that on several occasions. Our little virtual family can at least give tea drinker plenty of support and advice if nothing else.
Evening folks. KEF, yep I'm still seething too about tea drinker"s thug of a neighbour. Never liked bullies and like to see them put in their place. I'm sure it will all get sorted......well, not sure but hope anyway.
Traffic in Cornwall is horrendous now.....all those visitors from England! And they speak all propa like!
Been lovely day here....prob 23 degrees.
Sounds to me as if the neighbour probably has considerable mental health issues or a personality disorder.
Was thinking the same myself, Dove. My next-door neighbour, who used to be pleasant, has now become abusive, and in his case the problem seems to be his medication.
Hi GG It's a very difficult situation - if there are no relatives around to take an interest, and if the neighbour refuses to seek treatment .............
