That's such a pretty little terrier, Peggy.


Barley and Berry look like identical twins to me! But I expect Logan knows exactly which is which. Lovely photos.

Love your crocuses Jonesk! Mine were supposed to look like that but I think something small and furry dug them up.

Hope we get photos of Wonky's pergola when it's done.


Done pruning, still lots more to do and OH has put the pane back in the GH.


Cod in tomato sauce tonight, with pasta, fennel and runner beans. Tomatoes for the sauce were ones that I froze whole last summer.

Well done, Dove!


Been pruning, but it's clouded over.


Heating oil man has just been, another expense, 2000L, more expensive in France than England.


Have forgotten to hang out the washing and some of it was a king size duvet cover so it would have been better on the line.

I'm sorry about your little Yorkie. Had he been ill or was he old and at the end of his life? It's a sad time for the dog owner when he goes.

Designing a colour scheme

Posted: 02/03/2017 at 10:11

I have a large garden and I try to plant where I think would be the best place for the plant, damp, dry, shade sun, heavy or lighter soil. But one bed I try to keep more pastel and another for hotter colours. But I find, like Lyn, that there are different colours for different times of year, usually pastels early summer and reds and yellows later summer.
