Plants for new border

There's always an element of risk, no matter how experienced you are, weather, insects, birds, animals etc can all mess up your plans! But mostly it's OK and in June you marvel at how beautiful it all is.

Bosvigo is lovely, we went there in June 2011 when we were on holiday in Cornwall.

There was someone who posted on here some time ago who made a garden shed with pallets. I use them for storing big bales of hay on for my horses. My son has used them to make his compost heap.

It isn't any sort of cake because it's confiscated

YewJay and Verdun you are both in deep trouble and better get your coats as soon as possible! All cake is confiscated for the next week. KEF is being far too good to you.

Have you sown any seeds yet this year?

The gazanias and petunias have germinated. Sown Rudbeckia "Tiger Eye" and "Cherry Brandy", Swan River Daisies and Verbena "Dwarf Jewels".

2 Sweet Peas of the 36 I sowed on the 7th have germinated in the last day or two. Hope the others follow soon.

What a lovely find! I used to have hedgehogs about 20 years ago and would find their nests but they disappeared. But there are badgers in the woodland at the side of the drive and last year I found an elderly dead badger in the lean to behind the garage. I wonder if the badgers have got rid of the hedgehogs. I hadn't heard that before.

Good morning all.

It really poured last night, onto the already wet ground. Lawn is getting full of moss. But today there is a patch of blue in the sky between the clouds. My mum used to say if there's enough blue to make a pair of sailor's trousers then it will be OK!

Don't bother or even think about the bully, puncdoc. I don't click on ignore because I'm too curious, but usually I don't get too bothered.
