Thanks for the kind words GillyL in the planter is primula's,geraniums,blue kiwi,ivy 2 corner's hanging over the wall,in the middle a small grass plant. Got my two planter's built now when full will post picture's of them and my front garden all my hard work starting to look good now. next Sat taking a day off going to the gardening Scotland show in Edinburgh with the wife. punkdoc have a beer this is the weather for sitting out having a few go on enjoy same tomorrow i would join you but i don't drink.
Your patio looks fantastic, Andy, your hard work has paid off. Is that your new bargain garden furniture in the background? Bet Mrs. Andy was pleased.
Take some time to enjoy it Andy- you've worked so hard! Hope the weather is great through the summer so that you get a chance to sit in it now and again instead of toiling!
And did you do all the ironing as well as the washing..
I would send you extra cake but there's none left
Been painting and attaching fence planks and put more posts in but back too sore now. Might see if Andy could do the rest- it's not as if he's busy or anything...
Andy, that patio is really smart; liked the planters. The whole area looks very well designed. Now you have to practise sitting there with a beer
Can I just ask are we still using the evening forkers thread,or are we staying here?
Thanks Swiss Sue yes that's the furniture wife's delighted with it. Thanks Fairygirl i will enjoy it am sure ironing steady that's a bad word in my house wife and daughter don't like doing it but mother in law would iron all day loves the job.Tell you what not many women would try building a fence you must be one of very few well done but like me when you do something it's great to look back and say i done that and enjoy it. artjak thanks just done it as i went along did not set out with any plans just how i seen it along the way same with the front garden must say am happy the way things have turned out.
Planters and patio look great Andy, all that hard worked has paid off!
The garden looks great, Andy! It's going to be time-consuming looking at Morning and Evening Forkers at the same time, though. Perhaps we need a new curfew?
I had suggested just having one Forkers, eg Good Day Forkers, but no-one wanted to - at least no one who was reading the posts at that moment.
I think it's best to keep the forkers separate (I mean that in the nicest possible way!) as otherwise there is too much to read to catch up on
Best to keep both evening and morning FORKERS. As Artjak is right I think. We don't alway need to post every morn or every evening but as we feel. They are good in conjunction to use as we all feel fit.
Besides, how can we choose without hurting the feelings of evening FORKERS or mornimg FORKERS threads? Lol
Agree art. Sometimes I accicentally answer a post on this thread but only because it's later when I catch up if it's been a nice day.
Cloudy here and some very dark clouds so hope the forecasted rain 'showers' stay away. Showers in Scotland are usually about three hours unfortunately!
Hope to get a few more planks and posts done today. Just watching A-Z and they had a bit on Levens Hall in Cumbria which I love. Topiary heaven
Have a good day everyone.
Good morning Verdun; what did you think of my comments on perennials v. annuals?
Hope it is as sunny in the S/W as it is here
Its beautiful here in the SW this morning
Am going to plant out my cosmos today as it is getting so tall and leggy in the greenhouse,i,m afraid it will collapse if its not put out soon.also have coleus ready to br potted on and more beans to put out..
Have a good day everyone,enjoy the good weather
Morning. Really lovely here today. Even turned the heating off! Will be out in the garden but only something light as energy still not what it should be. Legs and back still protesting.
Great patio Andy.
Enjoy your day everyone, whatever you're up to.
Gorgeous morning, enjoy the day everyone, just off to GC
Today's mission is to get all the pots planted in the garden - this will require a single minded focus that I doubt I can achieve- I am one of life's faffers !
enjoy the sunshine !
Chick- I've just varnished lounge windowsills while having a third cup of tea - I can faff with the best of 'em
Off to paint more fence stuff....
FG, question. Did you manage to get free delivery on your posts? Just curious. I'm sure you will be really interested in the fact that I am just about to have brekkie.
That's kind of early for you is it not Tina...
Yes- found another place that did them free delivery- not quite as cheap for the posts but better than B&Q. Digging the holes is the worst bit!
