This is fun. 10/10 on 1st perennials, 8/10 on bedding annuals. Will keep me going on a rainy day!

Have I overdone it?

You don't have to read anything you don't want to, David.

Went out to restaurant for lunch today with the friends who we are going to Lake Garda with. Still feel full. Other friends arrive tomorrow, they will be staying in our house while we are away. I first met her on this forum sometime ago and I've been to her house and we became friends.

I'm hoping to go on a boat on Lake Garda, but that's not the same thing as real sailing! My brother used to race, but I preferred horses.

Went to the big hypermarket with friends who are staying, they are coming to Italy with us. We lunched at the Wok place, Chinese, they cook your meal in front of you.

Mike, I'm sorry you have met rudeness here, but this site has suffered from some strange people in the past and I think it could be because you didn't explain the whole problem in the beginning, so it sounded a bit strange. I hope you find your answer.

I suppose it's Windows 8 Dove. When OH got his new one he had to change from Windows 7 to 8 and he found it very confusing at first.

Morning all. Our guests had breakfast outside in the sun, but it was only 13° in the shade, too cold for me! But should be 25° later.

Autumn starts around the 21st September, the equinox. So most of September is still summer.

Should I use rock salt to kill weeds

I would rather use glyphosate than salt.
