Oh Punkdoc. I hope your other half starts to feel better soon. Sometimes an early night or even a half hour nap does wonders but it can be very distressing for others. So make sure help is sort if you think it needed though.

I'm trying to decide what I want to do with the pond; I'm torn between letting the grass grow up to the edge or whether to have flower beds around it or... whoever said gardening is relaxing??

Passiflora, can I plant it in the ground?

Mine got left in its pot (cut right back) outside all winter this year. Admittedly it was a mild one for Yorkshire but it's popped back just fine.

Oh Wonky!!! How annoying. I hope it's all insured at least so there's that option if required.

Afternoon all. Service went well even though a beaver fell asleep and we acquired a one year old who has mastered the art of crawling under the pews! Aside from being an escape artist she was very well behaved and made it all the more fun.

I'm now playing the will it rain game. The weather report says no. But the fact that my washing is out means the clouds are looking all mean and aggressive.

Ponds tend to self regulate: I've never been advised to water a lilly; in fact it would be very difficult too (even in a little pond) without upsetting the overall eco system.

Morning all! Laying in bed relaxed, content, suddenly realise it's scouts church service this morning! At least I remembered in good time! I don't expect any of the scouts to attend aside from the two whose mother's are brownie / scout leaders and so are forced. But they might surprise me. It doesn't help that the current leader only tells them verbally the Monday before and we all know how great kids are at passing messages on!

Sweet dreams Dove! I'll not be long behind so not stealing all the blankets.

I'm in talks with his lordship about getting trellis installed OB. It's not just that they are trespassing, invading our privacy, really upsetting the dog, but if that child falls (after all the roof is hardly designed for grip) yes it'll be upsetting for them but it's not something I want etched as a memory in what is meant to be my safe home.

Unfortunately I don't think their picnic basket is entirely full and probably just see it as not wrapping the children in cotton wool.

Neighbours child is on the outhouse roof again. I am sorely tempted to get up there and join him just so they realise that yes it is annoying when someone can see into your 

1. otherwise private garden

2. master bedroom window

Actually maybe I will wait until 08:00 and climb up there with the very loud hedge trimmer.

Looks more exciting than my mug of tea Dove! Never been a fan of wine. Cider I will sip all day, real ales used to be a favourite when I could. But wine... it and I are yet to get along.
