Happy Birthday LillyPilly - here's your cake

Love Hefty's story  Never seen one here - plenty of piles of wood and sticks if one ever wants to come and stay.  We have badgers though - and they seem not to co-exist very well.

Feeling very jealous of all you peeps that are making progress in your gardens.  Mine is a mat of weeds, and can't remember the last time I was able to get out there.  Nothing on this Sat, so fingers crossed for a fine day so that operation weedclear can begin (sounds like a herbicide, but actually will be me and a hand fork).

looking forward to the pics of woody's new house

How about some monsteroni soup?

have to go to bed now - my head hurts dreaming up all this stuff - don't know how Verd does it

Can you help identify this plant (v. 2) ?

The flower spike looks like a phlomis, but not sure about the leaves - are they the same plant?

Lizzie - what a dreadful day.  Hope they both pull through - what difficult times for their family and friends.

Lily - hope this is the first step on the road to better times for your friend and her daughter.

Course it will Lizzie - we're saving you a bunk.  Can you bring croissants for breakfast?  For those who can't face bacon butties

Monty don new series

Posted: 27/10/2014 at 20:40

Just finished watching them all - thought it was a really great series.  Only one I didn't like was the model village episode - but all the others turned out really well - and all down to the hard graft of the owners ....that was the really inspirational thing for me.  If you get out there, work hard, and take on as much advice as you can get, anything is possible
