No gadening but the rain seems to have held off. Had to see aged parent which was difficult, usually spell in garden afterwards helps but too wet today


I love the idea of a pond and rills but and have toyed with the idea of putting one in, even a small one.

I do have one in a galvanised bath tub but it isn't wild life friendly. 

There is one area of garden which is blank at present, but overhung by large oak tree, that I have considered, but unsure if it would be successful?

Well, I've been out twice planting bulbs in between showers. I got wet twice. Now I think its time for coffee and a caramel doughnut.

 I've got one spare......

Ooooooooooo.  They look rather nice.    One spare....ooooooooo

Its been dry, sunny and warm....windy too.  Had a visitor from 15 miles away who said its been pouring down there. That's Cornwall.  Little mini micro climates.  Heavy shower mid morning and beautiful since.  Planted out a few more large wallflowers.

Punkdoc  my conditions are so different.....well drained here so a stream with its wildlife and bog plantIng makes me envious. Would love to grow Rodgersias but can't.  I guess you can there.   Everything has a plus and minus I guess. 

Agree Urban it feels more like september or late,August. Lovely...till it rains again

I've got a deal. You send us the sun,

I'll send you a nice cream filled caramel topped doughnut.

Evening all

 been a wet day 

22/10/2013 at 18:58

Lily, just start a new thread. " Daniel help I can't see my PM"s." tell him you can send but not receive,

22/10/2013 at 19:00

Gardengirl have you bought them both? Very nice but that's a bit greedy...Enjoy.

22/10/2013 at 19:06

not got any of them, just took photos when went to the GC, I like the brightness of them and simple to put up

22/10/2013 at 19:07

Waiting for dinner but made the mistake of reading the last few posts first...any buns left fidget? 

Don't let Verd have any- he's probably been scoffing doughnuts all day....

Dry for a bit this afternoon so more woodworking done and a little painting so might get more planting done tomorrow weather permitting. 

My messages are all of a flutter too but I seem to be able to send. You could send one to Daniel - in case they're not aware lily - and if you say you can't receive, he'll post on a thread to update 

22/10/2013 at 19:12

Gg which do you prefer? I love the cerise but would maybe select second. Are you going to make / get one?...If any going free either colour suits me  I didn't get as far as GC only to Plumbfix for a new radiator valve.

22/10/2013 at 19:17

What an exciting life you lead KEF! Almost as thrilling as mine 

Got any gravy tonight? 

22/10/2013 at 19:17

Fairygirl, verdun bagged the last doughnut, but I have choccies. All plain chocolate--- it's practically a health food.
