Morning all - rise and shine πŸŒ„πŸŒ„πŸŒ„


You'll all need to shine extra hard, as the sun seems a bit shy here this morning


Littlest Chicklet back at college now, so early morning service resumes.


Hope those on that long sofa are all feeling a bit better today πŸ€’πŸ€’πŸ€’

Any ideas what this is?

Horrible stuff. I'm not usually one for chemicals, but in this case glyphosphate is probably the best way forward, before you start planting anything you want to save.

Oh Hazel - your poor Mum Always difficult, no matter what age.

Night night all, my early morning start has caught up with me πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

Evening all


Back on train again πŸš‚πŸš‚πŸš‚ but heading home this time.  People-watching was rubbish on the way up - regular commuters comparing car insurance pricesπŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€.  Hoping for better on the way home - and this time I have a window seat- so conducive to garden spottingπŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

Like Krissy, we can't keep the mice out of ours - try balancing the seed trays on upturned pots, so that there is a bit of an overhang - think "saddle stones" - mice can climb up verticals, but can't manage upside down.


or you can go all Heath Robinson and create a mouse baffler

So pleased it all went well DD - looking forward to the pics.  I still think it s an incredibly brave thing to do .....but I love wandering round other people's gardens, so I am so glad there are some brave people out there.  Now its time to relax (.......as if)


Turning in now - need to be in London for 8.30, so might catch you all on the train tomorrow morningπŸš‚πŸš‚πŸš‚

Obelixx - those patchworks are exquisite - what an eye for colour and patterns you have.  And you can certainly get your points to meet now


Waved goodbye to Dad, and now having a quiet afternoon.  Should be potting stuff on, but I just can't be @@@ed.  Not often I just slump


Glad to hear DD had lots of visitors, and looking forward to our virtual tour


Have a safe journey to Cheshire Lesley.
