Months?? Bed sheets is the only thing I could never be lazy about!

Cloggie I like the sign: if I weren't so idle I'd make one for the "natural" area.

Be grateful he owned pj's! When I had a trip to hospital my poor mother was horrified to find I didn't own any!

I had a shower this morning thank you very much! Clarty? Well earned sweat that is! 

You try changing bedsheets in this weather. My poor iron has damn near melted.

I can post a photo on any other thread. Just not this one. I fear my phone too ashamed!

B3; I'm thinking of a thorny display perhaps around the eventual chicken coop. 

Might need to plan a bigger coop!

I still don't seem to be having much luck putting photos on here. Yet everywhere else on the forum works fine.

But I thought you'd appreciate the giggle. I pottered around the garden writing a list of plants (the garden will soon be having a grand redesign so most things are in pots).

Having started off with two sea holly to celebrate a friends wedding (that came into bloom too early despite my best efforts so couldn't be used for the display she had in mind) to...

2 x eryngium bourgatti picos amethys

2 x eryngium x zabelii jos eijking

14 x eryngium gigantic

0 x place to put them

Anyone fancy helping me cut down the tree in the front garden to free up some space?

Glad he's home Linda; tell him to behave himself else I'll send one of us round!

Dokane; even though it seems out of season (the box says plant October - April) my local Tesco (south Yorkshire) is selling roots again albeit reduced (not as reduced as when I brought it).

Afternoon all!

Had to go (because I'm such a loving partner) to Meadowhell to look for a black leather belt for him to get for his father's day...

An hour of searching and sending him photos later he decides he liked the FIRST ONE BEST.

To top it off M&S don't even sell gluten free cake in that store so I couldn't even get a reward.

Now having a break between ironing and cleaning to rest and enjoy my day off.
