Doesn't go right way up on my laptop.

Too much gravel!

You could have a dry gravel garden

Scrape away the gravel, lay down a weed membrane. Cut holes and plant some thyme, lavender, rosemary, santolina sort of plants and re-lay the gravel. There are lots of photos in that link, some simple, some more ambitious.

What about chutneys and jams made with your own produce?

Could you have plant sales at other times of the year?

It's a yummy sticky cake made with oatmeal and black treacle. Best with ginger in it.

I use a container like the one Dove posted on the previous page. But before that I never had a bird with its feet caught. Better be safe than sorry though.

You must be mad Yvie, especially with a sore throat. Go to bed with a hot honey, lemon and brandy.

My Lucifer hasn't spread as much as I wanted it too. Probably too hot and dry here in the summer.

Morning all.

Your bed is looking great DD. Are you sure you don't want to join the Open Gardens?I've never bought or seen an intact empty bottle of wine.

Going to supermarket.

Happy birthday Lily Pilly

Can you help identify this plant (v. 2) ?

It is the herbaceous phlomis. I have it in my garden. There is a shrubby one too.

Fairygirl, we better get our coats together!

Did some weeding today and pruned a huge Tuscany rose. Couldn't tell what was what in the spring when the leaves weren't there. Loads of dead wood and old stems in the middle.

Love peanut brittle, but not with chilli. Do people still roast marshmallows on bonfires? Something warm and savoury? Chicken noodle soup, noodles look a bit like worms, OK for the theme.
