Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 13/02/2016 at 23:18

The other day I sprayed weedkiller on the gravel drive of our new 2nd home cottage. Not gardening otherwise as my main garden is in France and I'm in England.

Hosta, I watch English TV via a satellite. So, unless Strictly Come Dancing is on there is nothing on, so we watch programmes we have recorded on a hard disk. In Norfolk at the moment, have watched the Midwives and Mr Selfridge on Catchup TV.

Sorry your toe is painful Berghill.

Glad you enjoyed West Dean, Chicky. Lovely Hellebore. That's somewhere we intended visiting while we had the flat in Eastbourne but we never got around to it. It was a little far.

Mrs. Garden, if you pop in again, I hope you are having a lovely time in Japan. I look forward to your photos.

We had a great day today (yesterday now). The Garden Paintings Exhibition was lovely, some fantastic paintings, but lots of people. We had to make an appointment from the website, 2.30pm. First we met Matty and her OH at Brasserie Zedel in Piccadilly, that Dove recommended. Delicious food, huge place but great atmosphere and very reasonably priced. Thank you, Dove  Got back to Norfolk rather late as the train tickets were very expensive before 9pm. We had tea, rather hot chocolate, with Mr and Mrs Matty after the Royal Academy. Then they left and we wandered about, went to Covent Garden and looked at shops and stalls and a juggler.

Thank you Dove, Lesley, Fairygirl and DD. You all read my post, which I've put on again because it got stuck several pages back behind Pat and those who couldn't sleep!

I had wanted Dove to see that we really enjoyed the Brasserie because she recommended it. Really good choice and very near the Royal Academy.

Re-assembled the bed for the guest room today - tricky. Been putting away sheets and towels. Went to Sainsbury's this afternoon for food supplies and bits and pieces.

Had fish, asparagus (on special offer) and flatbreads with cheese and red onion in them.

Tomorrow we are going to London by train to see the Painting Gardens exhibition at the Royal Academy with Matty and her OH. Anyone remember Matty from here? We've been friends since then and she's stayed with me in France and I've stayed with her in the West Country.

Morning all. Frosty here this morning. -5° on the north facing patio at 8am, -1° now. Car was white with frost on the South side, defrosted now.

Man should be coming this morning to install water meter.

IKEA sofas came yesterday, ready made sofas wouldn't have fitted through the front door! They are cream and look nice with the cushions I made from left over curtain material. Loads of packaging to take to the recycling place.

Reviving an old slightly tired garden

Good to see you are still enjoying your garden, it's looking lovely.

What about a rowan, an amelanchier or a silver birch jackmontii?
