FG, at the moment, each morning I go out to forage from my 2 plants for 2 or 3 strawberries for breakfast with red gooseberries and Greek yoghurt

Oh Thank You Neighbour!

Nothing grows over from my neighbour's garden, but from my terrace I can see the top of a Kerria that seems to have been flowering for months and the red berries of a Rowan.

Of course from the back field I get; thistles, convulvulus, cleavers growing up and into my Campsis, nettles, hogweed etc. But hey, I chose to live in the country all I have to do is be vigilant and pull 'em up.

I tend not to do pastry, so do the same sort of egg/veg mix as a fritatta. Great warm or cold

Shabby Chic Anyone?

BM, I like that zinc bath and is that a footbath in the pic below the blue chair?

Obelix, the bottle wall is wonderful; does the sun shine through it and sparkle?

Fibreclay pots

Not sure what fibre clay is, but when drilling things like tiles I always use masking tape to try and stop cracks and of course a masonry bit.

Morning Glory is a climber, but flowers as the name suggests in the morning, so I always plant it facing East.

That Hollyhock is sensational

Making a potting bench

Posted: 29/07/2014 at 16:51

I now have all the equipment for making this bench, local metal worker will cover the top in aluminium. But while I psyche myself up to make it (I may be punching above my weight carpentry wise) I have made a primitive leaf mould container.

 Weighted down with stone at the base. I actually 'sewed' it together (no sniggering at the back there) with plastic covered garden wire.

Did I review 1500 plants in my sleep?

Why does it say I've reviewed all these plants?
