Is there a chaise longue available for those who tend to fall asleep after a glass of vino ...?

Hi Silvertop

Adam Pascoe's experiences may be helpful

I am making a new bed in my old woodland garden.

Yellow roots usually mean Stinging Nettles.

I don't think you'll get very far chatting with the gondoliers with your new language skills Verdun

I'd sow some nasturtium seed (trailing type) around the stump each spring (after the last frost).  They'll sprawl all over it and look glorious and you won't have to do a thing

Pat - maybe you'll be awake in time to put the tinnies in the rubbish bags

The spammers gave us at least two whole pages of something - I don't think any of us could read whatever language it was in - the Mods zapped it all as soon as they got into the office

Good afternoon Hosta   The landlord shouted at the electrician who is (or should be) at the flat.  Unfortunately the plumber is now away on holiday until next weekend

It's a glorious day here - I've got three loads of washing out and the towels are nearly dry!  There's a robin shouting at someone, some goldfinches singing at anyone and a chicken loudly announcing the arrival of an egg to everyone .... although the thermometer says it's only 15C it feels so warm that I've got the doors open onto the terrace

I imagine that it's not only to do with temperature but also to do with length of daylight hours.
