Hi Fairygirl just in for lunch so water plants in greenhouse while in back at work 2.45 till 9pm tonight there's a parent council meeting on. I cant sleep much at night as on steroids and getting chemo treatment also think there giving me more energy than i ever had lol. Wife says am never sitting down which is true i don't watch much TV always been used to doing something it was the dogs that kept me going up till last year now it's the garden.Weather very windy here just now also getting some heavy rain showers never mind it's going to get really warm from the weekend on so they say.
You seem to have enough energy for 10 people Andy!
And a kind person I reckon
Yes the wind here is my main prob as I need to put hedging in but I can't as that's where I'm going to extend so I'll have to be patient!
Afternoon Superman Andy and FG. No gardening today, just the boring accounts. Did input everything a while ago, but the weather changed and I didn't get round to totting up and checking everything. Just found I have two spreadsheets for June and none for July. Obviously didn't look what I was doing and didn't save properly. Stupid woman.
FG, my next door neighbour removed everything from his garden and it is now a rubbish dump. Complained last week that there was nothing growing in his garden. Said that's because you removed everything.
Grandchildren just arrived so best go.
north manchester dry chilly wind .whens this warmer weather coming ?? made a small rock garden in a spare triangle of ground .still filling planters .
I mowed a bit of the meadow then stopped for a coughing session.
Got some plants ready that I've promised a local garden group for a plant stall and wrote some labels. That will do for one day.
New window and door installed. OH has put first coat on walls in loo
planted a few onion seedlingsand soaked my orchids.
Did buy some compost and a couple of pots for the begonias but haven't seen anything for the rhodo.
I would like a square one, blue or black about 40cms across.
Knitting this evening, oh what an exciting life I lead
Matty not as exciting as mine..
Result getting some paint on though!
Archie the wind has finally beaten me and I've come in- but on the plus side- the washing was dry in an hour! Had to get dinner on anyway but got a good bit more repotting done and digging gravel into new front bed etc.
Nut- get the feet up
Tina- grandchildren- good luck!
Well, goodmorning all. Am fed up with being the last so thought I would be the first today.
Back in about 10 hours.
Hope you all slept well.
Morning all cold but looks like it's going to be a nice day going by the look of the sky just done my early morning check everything fine. Now tea & toast then work till 1.30 got hospital appointment at 2.30 should be home for 4.30 then get into the garden for a couple of hours have a good day everyone.
Morning Andy and everyone - hope all goes well at the hospital - yes sunshine and blue skies here too - only down to 4C overnight so I didn't need to fleece the beans after all. Birds singing in the trees and hedgehogs have eaten all their snacks - how will they manage when we go on holiday?
Morning Dove thanks take the hedgehogs with you or leave them a key lol.
Morning TT ! Tucking into another weetabix - have you heard there is a shortage - panic is setting in !!
Morning blackest, Andy and Dove. Hope hospital goes well Andy.
No frost forecast here, but we got some anyway. Luckily I had covered all the GH plants so no harm done there, but it will give everything outside another check.
Dropping off at Crocus to pick up my Exochorda Bride (after seeing Busy Lizzie's pictures last week, I could not resist). Very lucky that Crocus is on my way to work, thus avoiding hefty delivery charge. From the bits I have been reading in the papers they seem to be supplying plants for nearly all the Chelsea gardens this year, so will keep my eye out for designer types anxiously inspecting their charges.
Enjoy the sunshine everyone
Morning all. Good looking day here too Andy. Hope all goes well at hospital for you.
I'm back on the tea and toast today after my pains au chocolat yesterday...
Dove perhaps the hoggies could book in at a B&B while you're away?
Have a good day everyone
Morning FG - our posts crossed
OH has suggested that the blackbirds and the bluetits could fill the hedgehogs' bowls up and the hedgehogs could somehow manage to fill the bird feeders

I hope you and Tina aren't going to start a weetabix panic buying frenzy. What will all the 2 yr olds eat for brekkie...
