ponds

From natural to ornamental. I have a rectangular deep pond with no sides or shelving to help wildlife gain access. This is how I'm trying to balance the two; it is alive with frogs and birds stand on the pebbles to wash so must be working.

Morning all. Grey and raining here; I feel so sorry for the community event we're taking a fire engine too in Doncaster this afternoon.

I have chicken breast, courgette, sweet potato, mushrooms... and no idea what I'm going to make for supper. Does anyone want to motivate me? Doves meatballs sound appealing.


Liri; I think you'll find a way to make the planters suit you're style and add an impact in the darker months.

Oh Lilly! We've had our problems with Reggie but never serious chewing fortunately. His whole behaviour calmed down when we switched him to raw food but have you thought about a thunder jacket? They're meant to be very soothing for stressed dogs (I'm getting one for the fireworks season).

To be a true gardener you must be willing to get muddy, and have patience! Just watch all those people who every year go to B&Q and buy instant colour for their garden. That's not gardening. That's decorating.


See original post

 +1 for patience and you need more of it when OH looks at those "decorared houses" and tells you how neat and nice they are as compared to our place 😏

 I'd be more measuring him up for the compost bin if he said something like that to me!

Beautiful prize Fairy!


I accidentally fed the dog tripe instead of meat chunks (both are in the same bags in the freezer). The smells he is creating while I'm trying to drink tea in bed are most offensive.


Went and swapped some plants with parents as we met up for a meal. I now have a LOT of basil. Not sure what we're eating tonight but it'll be basil laden!
