Such a waste....

I offered my neighbour some of my glut of blackberries - she declined as she had no idea what to do with them and didn't realise you could just... eat them.

Is it too late to scarifying this year?

I'd aerate it now but hold back 

Please help me identify a fungus/growth

I agree with what Dove has said

Mostly harmless it's just found the perfect conditions to grow (with the shelter from the tree).

Morning All! Today's big job is to prepare 30kg of meat for the hounds dinners (usually takes around 5 hours by the time it's sliced, weighed, bagged up etc) and.. 

*drum roll*

Buy a dining table! It's a two seater affair for the kitchen as we decided against putting the original 6 seater back up In the lounge. Eventually we'll have the conservatory / dining room built but til then we will only host meals in the summer or in the peak of a snow storm insist on a BBQ as part of our eccentric English lifestyle.

My four robin's stitched so far!

No work for me today as I'm holiday - trying to use up my annual leave as it's very much a use it or loose it affair. The trouble is not working just makes me realise how better my fatigue levels are if I can rest when I need, and how much better I can get chores done before the master of the house gets home... how mother's manage it when they work I've no idea. 

Right; mug of tea anyone?

Hadn't even thought about Christmas decorations - it's the first time in two years we've got a home for them to go in!

I'm currently making felt robin's. I'm not sure what I will do with them. Mother has a felt cutting machine so we got a little carried away (I have enough for 13!).

There's a whole lot of soil but some roots insist on never venturing.

The original poster was in 2015.

A spambot brought this up to The latest threads: this has been deleted now (as has my comment explaining the spammer). I don't think the original poster is around to see your helpful advice.

Glorious sunshine all weekend but I did chores in between sniffles.

Now I'm feeling less like I have to battle to sit up... It's raining! Oh poor garden it looks do untidy.
