...  Dove ....were you a guide or browny leader once?




 Nope ... never had anything to do with them really ... Wonky was a Brownie for a few weeks but she didn't like being told what to do   


I grew up in such a tiny village so far away from other villages there weren't enough children around to have any sort of 'Pack'.


Why do you  ask ... was it something I said

Get yourself a copy of Alan Titchmarsh's How to Garden: Small Gardens book ... around £5.50 on Amazon ......... it's full of ideas for creating privacy in your garden without  having to be in a gloomy space surrounded by high fences and hedges.

Then I see no alternative for you but to ingratiate yourself with the other users of the garden

Join me on the sofa and put your feet up Ruby ... I've got a lovely big Brazilian leather pouffe for our feet 


Joyce ((hugs))  sounds so much like a spell of ill health my Pa went through several years ago following his hip op .... once they'd got his levels right he was so much better.  Hope they can send him home soon 

What is it ??

It's a chrysalis (pupa) of a moth or butterfly ... it's the transitional stage between caterpillar and the adult.


Leave it where it is or in a similar spot and when it's finished developing the moth or butterfly will emerge.

We get so much pleasure just laying on our tums on a sunny afternoon watching the pond snails munching on the algae and duckweed ... they're growing at a rate of knots (the snails that is) and breeding prolifically ..... love 'em

There's a label on the rose in the first photo ... what sort of rose is that?


What sort of compost are they planted in and when were they last repotted into fresh compost.


Have they ever had any fertiliser?

Night night Pat ... sweet dreams 


It's lovely weather here today ... I expect everyone else is in the garden if they're not at work ... I'm on the sofa with my feet up ...

How do I save a thread?

In that case, I'm sure it's fine just to post 'Snagging' or something similar so that it will appear on your My Posts.  


It's acceptable on most forums and I really can't imagine anyone here objecting
