Job this week is to change all my basket's and planter's which i never got done yet.The headteacher asked me for a vase of cut flower's for the main foyer at the school so i put them in last week will post a photo for you all to see soon hope everyone is keeping well have a good day all.
Got to keep going Andy. Worth it in the end. It's just as difficult emotionally as physically, isn't it? Be good to see that photo
Hi Andy - good to see you Chin up it'll be worth it My 20 year old niece got the all clear a couple of months ago
Love a vase of fresh garden flowers
Morning Andy. Glad you're feeling better now. The garden will keep you going
You've just reminded me to go and pick more sweet peas.
Just took daughter to school- chucking it down and only 9 degrees.....9 !!!! Ridiculous!!
May have to resort to ironing and drinking tea. So much for the dry day
Andy.glad you are feeling better,look forward to seeing your photo.
Fairygirl........My sweet peas are only just coming into flower,never had them so late as this.,not enough to pick any yet.
Runner bean crop has been (no pun intended) fantastic,given loads away to neighbours,Mum making runner bean chutney wonderful with crusty bread and cheddar cheese
Sunny and warm,but quite windy this morning ,so not too sure what I will do today.
Morning all - sunny here (sorry to those north of border).
good to see you back andy - glad you are feeling better now - keep strong
got to work this pm - but might take laptop into garden to try and kid myself that i am having a weekend after all!
enjoyed Monty last night - but not sure why my gladioli are all leaves and No flowers this year - and i had my cotton wool at the ready and everything
Morning all. After a few household errands, we are getting back to clearing the overgrown area of our new garden. This is in readiness for creating our veggie patch.
All hands to the spade and fork, even that of an 21 month old
Morning all. Been up ages but busy spreading the news and then lost one really long e-mail which I had to redo.
Hi Steebe. Welcome to the madhouse.
Was wondering where you were Andy. Sorry to hear your treatment knocked you for six. Do hope you're feeling OK now.
I'm off for a bit of retail therapy. Eva has told me what she likes so will see what I can do. So glad she didn't ask for some Dr Martens.
Lovely day here. Sorry FG. You will have to move.
Very strange Gilly. I started mine indoors and when they went out we had a really cold spell and they got checked, but once they got going again they've been great. Just took a pic of them as the sun came out for a little while. Will put it on one of the picture threads. Got some of a huge bee who landed on the rocket flowers by the back door.
morning everyone. best wishes andy.
not sure what i'm doing today and tomorrow. visit to GC sounds like a plan. grass to cut. sunny,cool and windy here.
Morning Tina. The sun's come back out but it looks like a hit and miss kind of day.
I'm sure you can get Doc Ms in tiny baby size if you look hard enough....
Hello folks, I'm back from visiting duties and shopping duties. Sprinkler has been on the Shady Bank for 40 mins, then the Swiss Chard, now the R. beans - still as dry as the Sahara here in the far east
Here you are TT http://store.drmartens.co.uk/c-293-crib.aspx
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! My little Twinkle Toes won't be wearing them. Got one sweet little outfit but problem is sales and change of seasons. Wish I still had a sewing machine. Could then run her up a few co-ordinates. Thought that some of the material and the workmanship left much to be desired.
Will have to get out and water too Dove. Been baking hot again today and temperature supposed to be rising again tomorrow. I am not complaining. Said I wouldn't so will keep my promise.
Back to my book. Will try not to doze off this time.
Thanks for the kind words everyone here's the picture of the vase of cut flowers from my garden in the school foyer.
Wow Andy - that is stunning. The colours go together beautifully. Hope they were widely admired
Gorgeous flower arrangement Andy.
Good morning all
Lovely flowers Andy, and perfect n that setting!
Well, we're into September now - it's gettng cooler overnight and I've hunted out my warmer dressing gown. Hedgehogs were on the terrace when we went to bed last night - I shall have to mix up another batch of their evening snack for them today - hedgehog biscuits from the GC, with added chopped peanuts, dried mealworms, sunflower hearts and a few broken up banana chips.
Beautiful arrangement Andy,colours pick up the seats perfectly.
Yesterday was windy ,but very hot in patches,sat out watching Morris men after visiting a classic car event,got a bit sunburnt was very glad of my strawberry and cream ice cream.
Lucky hedgehogs in your garden Dove .....a special biscuit made just for them,I expect they tell all their friends
Autumn has arrived,with the first of Spetember,the blackberries in the field behind us are ripening well,and I hope tp be out picking some this week to stew with apples from Mums tree.Am also picking the Victoria plums now,a very large crop this year.
Andy. Nice colour associations. Want to copy those somewhere in my garden
Well. I'm always saying it this summer but it's a beautiful sunny morning. No wind. There is a cooler fresher feel although it was still 22 plus yesterday
The acteas have been so good this year with their brown/purple foliage but now Brunette is flowering with long thick spikes. Black negligee's spikes just a fraction behind.
Hostas dying back now with snails adding their bit to hasten their decline.
Enjoy your day everyone
Morning all, wow Andy that looks great ... Such a talented lot on here...... Have a good day everyone taking lo to see trains and fire engines!
