ooh upside down cake! How How lovely!

Climbed onto the bonnet of the truck to reach the top of the bushes for a much needed trim When I got home this evening. Who needs a Stepladder ?!

Not gardening but a computer question

Kef - go for windows 7. You CAN still get it if you know where to look as I just brought it on my (aka I brought and paid for) work laptop. I'll get you the details tomorrow as I'm tucked up with my hot water bottle right now!

Chicky - I like the idea of ferns, does anyone know what they are like for pollen? I'm thinking that since my partner has very bad hayfever it would be nicer to keep the flowers low pollen at the front.

Steve - not a chance! The LR is my vehicle & very much needed for towing fire engines in the day time and moving tons of horse manure for the vegetable plot in the evening!

Does anyone want to suggest what's for dinner? Himself is currently away helping a friend clear out of the house he's been renting and truth be told as happy as I am to cuddle up into my blanket I get the impression he'll want feeding when he gets home and beans on toast wont cut it!

Nutty - the driveway is plenty large enough for trampling and toxics associated with vehicles. We're not going to have any edibles on the front as it's really not suitable but would like a few hardy plants that'd put up with rhis punishment! 

Thanks GardenMaiden - I'll have a go at cutting the tree to let more light in and will find a website on alpines to see what might look nice.

Do you grow Aconitum's?

When, as one of those young people, I moved into a new house and started prodding around the garden not really knowing what I was doing the first thing I did (after hacking back the lawn) was put on a pair of jazzy gardening gloves and kept my phone nearby (us young folk can't bare to be without our phones) so I could photograph plants flowers and leafs I didn't recognise to later search the internet as to their identity. 

Plants are dangerous. Life is dangerous. Should we be banning scissors in case I forget to respect the unknown and decide to try running with them?

 

(No laughing KEF - I could probably run if I really wanted too!)

There's going to be about 1 - 2ft less ground area nearest the white vehicle to play with.
