I think my entire garden is from the sticky label section!

Evening all. 

Well we got the funding bid submitted one minute before the deadline and today involved attending a drug driving presentation (emotionally hard hitting for someone who was the victim of a drink driver). My brain is now absolutely shattered! Glass of cider with my sandwiches (too lazy to cook as I'm home alone) to go with my rock and roll lifestyle and then its to bed for an early night! Working around 25 hours this weekend so I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and if anyone could nip and attend to my weeds I'd be very grateful.


Anyone seen any ladybirds?

We've barely seen any this year

Morning all. Still writing...

Dove: when you get the chance to apply for funding that would mean all the difference for the education team but the boss hangs on to the email for a few weeks until 16 hours before the deadline.


Evening in bits. Now sat on the laptop trying not to go blind in the meantime. 

Words are not flowing today. I'm almost tempted to get drunk and hope for the best.

No gardening for me. Again.

Sweet dreams Pauline: we'll try and keep the noise down!

Yarrow some of mine are shorter than the others: all the ones the dog squashed are little shorties: could yours have been damaged too?

Morning all. After a glorious few days away its time to head back to work.

After potting up the 17 tomato plants I was given yesterday (there's already 8 in the greenhouse)... his lordship has decided to announce he's not terribly keen on tomatoes!  (It was his parents that gave them to me!)

Now trying to work out what all these other plants are and where they can go. Til then they're in pots of water - I emptied one bucket to use to find three MONSTER sized tadpoles in there: I will confess to squealing a little!
