Weird - i don't even get a tree icon on my iPhone, but can upload from roll or stream on iPad - strange how they work so differently for people

angela - can you see the green tree icon on the tool bar in your "angela says" box ? Click on that and follow the instructions - choose an existing photo to pick up ones you have already taken - and you have to be a bit patient, it takes about 30secs to upload a photo.  I use my iPad to post photos all the time - and i am a technophobe

Thanks all - the stone walls are retaining - the house and garden are on quite a steep hill - but they do the trick

Hope you have all enjoyed your days - outside, inside or battery recharging.

Got loads done here - 3 day weekends should be the norm.  Roses all fed - and looking particularly healthy this year - my groups of 3 now finally look like they are one large bush.  sweetpeas in the ground, and problem weedy area sorted.  Turned a blind eye to little oak trees - previous 2 days assault was enough for now.

Littlest chicklet retrieved from her rucksack laden plod - v tired, but had some laughs along the way.  Has now been reunited with her phone ..... all is well with the world

Anybody use Stewart Balconniere planters?

They look interesting - if you are using them for tomatoes, how long does the water resevoir last?  Would it get through a weekend's absence (Ie 2nights away?)

Morning all - lovely here too. What a gorgeous BH weekend we have been treated to.  Today i MUST follow my list - so thats roses and clematis to feed, a particularly weedy section to clear, and pot on some of my GH babies.

Fidget - your OH is pretty handy too - Mr Chicky says that if you get the right cut of stone (ours is Purbeck) then its easier than it looks - and as ighten says, as therapeutic as a jigsaw
