Late mark for me. Developed apathy overnight, couldn't get out of bed. We've had the much needed rain so looking forward to seeing things romp on in the garden as they needed a good drink.
Verdon would you mind looking at the thread about the stags horn tree?
Good luck Woody.
We've had a little rain overnight too - and hopefully there's more to come (but not too much please!)
Morning all- planting up my patio pots today. Still have gusty winds swirling around.
but sunshine so shouldn't complain. Fingers crossed for WW.
Off to England today, Staying with son mid-France tonight. Will see my beautiful little granddaughter.
I hope no-one with small children was upset by this badly behaved parent discussion. It was directed at a small minority. Most children are lovely and most of us have children and grandchildren. I had 4 children and I have 6 grandchildren, with hope of more to come. I used reins in town as I felt their safety was the most important thing, but only until they learnt that roads were dangerous.
Morning anyone who is still about.
A bit late but have a great time GG.
Liz hope to see you whilst you are over here.
Fairy could you lie in wait with a hosepipe, give the kids a very short spray but then blast the mothers?
WW good luck for tomorrow- fingers crossed the weather is kind to you.
Morning all bit of a mixed weather day Showers brief glimpses of sun then cloud. Hopefully I will be able to take a few photo's of weeds/ flowers to identify which is which. Trouble is most of my beds are green now but i don't know exactly what is coming up.
If it comes to prizes for what time you get on this thread, I claim the booby prize.
Morning all and good to see you back Blackest. We've been wondering whether you were OK.
Sun was shinning, but it's really windy again. No plans to do anything particular.
WW, good luck for tomorrow. Only wish you weren't so far away as I have read that several of the posters are going to descend on you. Should be fun and I hope you've got plenty of cake. Let's hope the weather's kind to all.
Better call that plumber and get the outdoor tap done then....
Hello blackest - we've all been wondering where you were! Was a bit worried that you were unwell. Glad you're fine
Morning Tina. I'm going to have to face doing HW..and ironing...
Morning Tina, we've got sun now but quite a breeze, having a lazy morning and then off to Mum's. Maybe a bit of gardening this aft' but then again it is wet so might have a day off. Could always sort out clothes, think it's safe to stash winter stuff now, if I don't it won't be worth getting summer stuff out.
Yes, Bev, I'll be in touch, hope to see you for a coffee or something at your local garden centre.
But it's Saturday, FG. No housework should be done at the weekend.
Tried to get the cat last night with the hose but stupid me had left the sprayer open and as I turned the tap on, I got the full blast. Sure the cat grinned. Bl..dy thing. Sorry cat lovers but when you see cats fouling your garden and scrambling up the fence where you have climbers, it really makes me angry. He tried it up a 6ft fence with 3 ft of trellis yesterday, didn't make it and proceeded to hang in for dear life, pulling the plant with him and landing in another shrub. I should have put this on MOB thread.
Cats!! Don't start me
No choice Tina. Pouring with rain so nothing doing outside. Have done the ironing and going to have lunch. Starting to clear up a bit so may get some holes dug. Will have to face shops at some point too though
Am I the only person who's had cats which c*****d in their own garden!
Pouring down here too FG, not that I had anything particular I wanted to do, but son did.
You should try online shopping as doing it yourself is such a waste of time and energy and, from experience, if you take your daughters with you, very much cheaper.
Next door swore blind that their cat used their vegetable patch, then proceeded to give me lettuce and tomatoes. I'm afraid they went straight in the bin. YUK.
I have cats but have an indoor litter tray and there is a bit of garden they can use.
Online shopping is great, so much easier than having to go to the shop.
Has been sunny and hot but now turned cloudy and wind has got up so lying out in garden didn't seem such a good idea.
Dead wagtail on patio today,thanks to cats,next door tell me they get a bird offering most days.Did manage to get a cat with the jet spray on the hose this week,it disappeared from the top of the fence.just like those ducks in a fairground.Made me feel a lot better.
Gilly, my neighbours think it's funny. It also takes frogs. Have enquired why they don't fit the cat with a bell, but it's because the poor creature might hang himself if he gets caught up. All the more reason for putting one on.
Will duck with you Tina,ready...........
Gilly and Tina - tut tut - and you two are nature lovers.....
Gilly maybe the fairground gun would be better!
Maybe I should get a water pistol.
The trouble Fairygirl is that I do love nature,and I hate seeing it half eaten in my garden.
