 But she knows that flower tubs are forbidden!

If cats are allowed then here is Alexa who also follows me about. Was a stray, semi wild, in the woods near my daughter. Daughter managed to catch her when she was a child and has been with me ever since. Now rather sweet, but was full of hiss, spit and scratch when young.

Here is my gardening buddy. He's always snoozing somewhere in the shade nearby when I'm weeding. He's 11, but was 9 in the photo. I took a photo recently, but I can't find it. Usually looks scruffier, just been bathed.

 

Is it ok to plant climbing roses in a trough shaped planter

I couldn't get those photos, link didn't work, nor did copy and paste.

DD arrived - at last. She got very lost and her phone had broken, no Sat Nav. We had a good chat and she brought rock cakes because we'd talked about them, lovely, better than at school! Think she was here for about 3 hours and we haven't finished saying all we wanted to say yet! Sorry, forgot to ask OH to take a photo, but it's not as though we were visiting a garden.

Tomatoes. Do I have the dreaded lurgey?

Looks like blight on the stems. Mine had blight early July, everyone says it's fatal and infectious. I sprayed and sprayed with something I got in the GC that said it wouldn't stop you using the fruit and the blight has stopped. The stems still have brown patches and the earlier tomatoes weren't much good, but all the tomatoes that didn't have it have been fine and I've had a reasonable crop. Plants have grown new green leaves too. I picked all the brown ones off.

Thanks Nut, I missed that. We were in Shropshire on holiday. Lots of photos. Chicky is young and slender. DD hasn't arrived yet , hope she's not lost. It's a bit buried in a forest.

I was worried DD wouldn't find my house with a Sat Nav, they don't know it - takes you to the wrong one and I forgot to give her my phone number. But it doesn't matter as she hasn't a phone or a Sat Nav! I sent a map by email. She's due in 30 mins. She'll be able to report back that Lizzie's garden is full of weeds and needs cutting back and pruning, if she finds it! Doesn't show so much on photos. We should have a thread for photos of the messy bits of our gardens.

Who have you met, Chicky? Or is it a secret. You didn't sent photos like Dove, Nut and Panda.

DIL has him in a sling when she does housework, but she wants to sit at her computer because she's going back to work soon.

The complicated thing about babies is that they are all different with their own personalities and they don't always behave how you thought they would!
