Love a bargain

Posted: 03/04/2016 at 16:54

We got a bargain today - driving back from visiting Ma we passed a house with a sign

Free Horse Manure - we filled the car boot with six bags full of pony poo and now they're stacked in the garden - when we empty the compost bins they'll be added bit by bit to the new heap - marvellous!

Hello SolentWind and welcome aboard - that plot is certainly going to keep you busy for  a while  - I think I'd start by strimming and mowing to get a meadow effect, and live with it for a while, then make some decisions about dividing it up. 

Big Christopher Lloyd fans here too

Clari - is this a new cough the neighbour has, or a new neighbour?

Yes, at least the one with the 'Italianate' garden didn't seem to mind parting with plenty of her inherited cash to a team of landscapers who undoubtedly did all the work - didn't see her dirty a fingernail - in order to be able to say that MD designed her garden, and invited all her friends to party with him at the reveal - she'll dine off that one for years

Fairy, it's at the "reveal" of the garden in Twickenham . Not even a coherent sentence.

As he left he said it'd win a gold medal at any flower show. That sealed it, deffo under the influence of something.

Yes, that sealed it for me too!  LOL   And I'm sorry, that woman was soooooooo irritating - even more irritating that the Mad Hatter in the other garden

Swallows, swifts and martins - have you seen them yet?

Posted: 03/04/2016 at 08:20

I grew up on a farm with swallows nesting in the barns and housemartins under the eaves of my bedroom - I watched them collecting mud from the edge of the pond and swooping low over it on the summer evenings, hoovering up the gnats. 

Then at our last house (early Victorian terrace with pantiled root) we had many swifts nesting in the roof, and we woke on summer mornings to the sounds of them screaming as they flew past our window.

Now we're living near the marshes, and we watch them hunting insects over our heads.

Not seen any this year tho' ...................................yet
