HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 10/04/2014 at 06:44

Morning all!  I had to set my alarm to wake my partner up with his cup of tea early...

Only for him to stay in bed til I normally get up anyway!

Not sure where the logic of my having to wake him up comes from - but even if he tried to be quiet he ends up walking into the bed or turning all the lights on so I guesd I'd be forced awake early anyway. 

 

I've been putting all my plant photos on http://instagram.com/ladyclarington but unfortunately there doesn't seem to be an easy way to share them on here so you are shared my random pictures and not crisp enough close ups!

 

Have a good day everyone!

Lawnmower grumbles...

My thoughts are that if I was the landlord I'd think it was in my interest to provide a cheap lawnmower.  

Trouble for a Landlord is unlike supplying things like fridge (aka plug in, turn on, if it tips over on you that's because you were most likely doing something dodgy) is if a person injured themselves using a lawn mower provided to them where does the Landlord stand in terms of not being sued that it was unsafe / they weren't risk assessed / trained to use it and all other sorts of daft things that stand in the way of common sense? The law is often so wishy washy and people are scared of getting sued over the silliest of things that its often easier not to bother.

Clarington its a strange year and i have seen far to many (natural lady bugs out so soon up north. this year). Let mother Dove do her work. 

Morning Edd! How was Peppa Pig? Yes I've seen many lady birds here (S. Yorkshire)  so I'm hoping they find quite the feast that awaits them as I always get nervous of using washes on plants ( even if they are just for decoration). Shows me I mustn't get complacent just because the flower beds aren't ready - the pots still need attention! 

Look forward to your pallet creations!

Found my bronze fennel COVERED in aphids!  Not an inch was spared. Put it outside now & I'm hoping the lady birds will find it before it gets a soapy wash tomorrow.  Critterd weren't there yesterday!

Mrs G. The weather man said it would be nice but that's the second heavy storm shower to bounce off Sheffield this morning!

Hope you get to see The Gardens. I'm waiting for my grandparents (big gardening fans) to come up before I go there which is terribly silly really since gardens are always changing!

Morning all! 

Hanging basket theft

Posted: 08/04/2014 at 07:36

People steal them to sell off to (mostly) unsuspecting people wanting to add a bit of colour to their garden without any effort. It is unfortunately very common.
