Twirly thing here too - hidden round by the garage.

Spent the day finishing our vegetable garden by putting up the hazel hurdles.  I was builder's mate - held things up etc etc.  very pleased with the end result ....

 Now having first alfresco wine this year, surrounded by the perfume of the wisteria.  One very happy Chicky.  PS Chicklet has cheered up too - only 2 more exams to go.  Then we have to start worrying about littlest Chicklet's science GCSE in a couple of weeks .... Best have another sip of that SB ....

Tea for me please Dove - milk, no sugar

Glorious here too (soz Fairy) - FiL came yesterday to watch the footie - seems he had decided to stay the night, but didn't let anyone else in on the secret - so some rather frantic last minute bed making was required ( the spare room was being used to dry a tent).

Planted out most of the cuttings i took last autumn - penstemmon, agastache and phlox, to bulk up the clumps that i already have.  And uprooted another zillion oak saplings......

JUST FOR MIKE

Great to hear you're home.  Take it easy for a bit 

HELLO FORKERS!

Thanks Dove - she has never been one to come out of exams with a smile - always focuses on the bits she thinks she got wrong ... but today she was completely dejected .... probably because it is her best subject.  Ultimately she will be fine  - big heart, big personality - but stressful atm.  

That new roundup gel

Posted: 16/05/2014 at 21:47

Lizzie - it has a clicker on the bottom - but i haven't found it very good even when i can get the gel out.  Don't like using sprays, as they are indiscriminate.... So i am back to the daisy grubber
