My noodling took me to Leicester Square - where i am currently surrounded by 70,000 screaming teenage girls - one of whom is my responsibility!

Same here for apples - this year i have hung smelly soap in the trees and they have taken a couple but left us some. I am hoping that as the trees get more prolific there will be enough to share

Gilly - noodling is a technical term for mooching about wherever the mood takes you, doing not very much at all !  One of my favourite ways to spend a day.

take care on your travels eveyone

Morning - day off, so a bit later today.  Off to London to meet up with my sister and nieces - going for a spin on the eye, then a bit of noodling.  No gardening at all! Hope everyone has a good day.

Georgie, what a beautiful garden - looks idyllic

Lizzie - love the contrast between spring and late summer.  What is the big yellow clump, and does it grow that size from nothing each year??

I would agree - roses normally only do well in pots if they are the patio sorts.  Can you find this one a sunny spot in the ground? And then give it plenty of food and water - they are hungry plants, and need to be kept well watered til established.  But well worth the effort - especially if it is a special one

Happy birthday panda - that photo should become your avatar!!

welcome back Pentillie - echo what others have said about your daughter, and hope all is well soon.

had the stumps of our ex-leylandii hedge ground out today.  Now it just needs several Landrover's full of horse muck and my veggie patch will begin to start taking shape.  Won't be planting anything there for a while ( got a fence to get up first), but its nice to see a plan coming together

Don't mind when they help themselves to bird seed, but get cross when they run off with my apples
