FairyG; very impressed by the fence!

Good work with the fence, looks very good.


Thank you art and Singy. Very kind. It's sadly about the only thing growing in my garden just now...

OK I'm exaggerating a bit!

Pouring here now but it softens the ground up for me- been like concrete here so I don't know why I'm having to mix it for the posts! 

Fairygirl, just think of all those muscles you're developing.

Ive just emptied my first bag of spuds after the high winds pretty much snapped all the stems/shoots, they where about 3 foot.  But sadly after emptying the bag i ended up with 20ish that are of an edible size, the rest where like peanuts. 



Verd I'm starting to look like Popeye. If I find myself thinking about getting a pipe I'll know I've crossed a line....

Singy shame about your spuds. I think I might get some foxgloves for front border to give  a bit of height between the other shrubbier plants especially as they're quite small just now. The pix of your lovely white ones recently have made my mind up for me! 

Deanos Diggin It


Hi guy's! Weirdo again! Nips in n out as pleases! 

Loads done! 

 Only a bit to fill n job done! 

Grandaughters project underway! 

 Then may start mine! 


Deano - can't believe how incredibly neatand tidy your whole plot is! It's fantastic 

Your spuds look as if they're coming on a treat. Have you had any yet or is it too soon?

Hope granddaughter appreciates your hard work. What's your project then?

The potty gardener

Dean- again gold star for tidyness.

My clematis has now opened enough to look like it should. Shame the Dr Rupple also in the pic has gone over



Really pretty, Bev. I bought one once that should have had a purple middle like that, think it was called "Florida", but it turned out white all over.


Deano, amazing veg garden!

Bev, I love those creamy ones


Just been catching up on all your lovely pics.  Deano, I think I need you in my garden!!!  Anyway here's a few from today and the last couple of days:




 Hope you all enjoy.  I'm making progress in the back garden, but nothing interesting to post on here, it's all still a bit of a mess I'm afraid.

Take care all.



Beautiful, I just love the photos everyone puts on.

A few more pics taken in the back garden this evening:

1st one is 'Just Joey' This is Eileen's out & out favourite, particularly for its scent but also it was her Mum's favourite too.

 Second is an update on the Yellow Rose (not from Texas!) that we rescued from her Dads when he passed away. (Sorry, don't know the variety)

 Next one is another we don'y know what it is (given to us by some friends who moved up to Stirling & couldn't take it with them)




John I love the white one,  but the other two have special meaning for you and that makes them the best ones  



Lovely stuff. Lots of beautiful healthy looking roses

Actually they all have a special meaning FG. The white one was a 25th wedding anniversary gift from us to our friends (I was also the photographer at their wedding in 1971). They said they would like us to have it when they moved to Scotland so everytime we see it we think of them.


John what lovely background stories to all  those roses.  

I'm working away in Germany/Finland for a few weeks so my beautiful wife is sending me regular updates as our garden slowly but steadily bursts in to summer colour. This is a little collection of potted plants on the steps/decking by our french doors. Clive and Lindsey.
