Pete, the original poster hasn't posted since May 2013, but I expect the information will be useful for others.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Weed sprayed the drive and parking area. Potted on 14 tomatoes. Planted some Forget-me-nots that were sitting forgotten in a tray. Weed sprayed some brambles that I thought I had dug up.

Morning all, gosh, what a lot of chat on here already!

Dove said "I lose track of who's on holiday, who's working, who's poorly, who's injured, who's annoyed  their OH and who's buried their OH in the compost heap "

 You're blushing Dove, is your OH the one is the compost heap?

My OH has gone off to a talk on English Cathedrals. I'm supposed to be tidying the house before the house sitter comes tomorrow, but I've been potting on tomatoes in the GH.

DD, I'm sure they'll be delighted you care about the garden. You could have grassed it all over instead but you didn't.

Clari, I'm glad you had a good holiday. What did you do?

 General view of top two terraces, another wall, lawn and beds lower down, also another lawn and bed on other side of house.

Congratulations Lily!

DD, looking good, what a lot of work you've done. I think you look slimmer than last year, or is that because of the running?

I was working in the garden until it was too dark to see properly, then I came in and did a load of ironing.

No, you don't, because you told him the paths looked lovely. Is he trustworthy weeding the beds? I won't let OH in my flowers!

Just got in from the garden. Was weeding then watered in GH and veg garden seeds and terrace pots. Now it's too dark to see what I'm doing.

Topbird, I know just what you mean, got all those weeds as well - though there are a lot fewer after the last two days.

Your house is looking  great now, ighten, what a lot of work you've done.

Yviestevie, for a ghastly moment I thought SIL had been let loose in your garden!

Spent the morning weeding. Back from supermarket. Got lots of dog food for house sitter to feed Tigger and stuff for making lunch sitting in the airport on Thursday. The strike is off , if the French papers are correct.
