OH's family had a Patterdale x Lakeland, and their next door neighbour has had Patterdales for years, as have all their sons. - dogs of character
Verdun, when we come down in September you, me and OH can move them on and then everyone can move in - it sounds as if Bekkie has enough beddfing for everybody.
At least if it rains it'll be just what the daffs need. Hope you've got a substantial mackintosh
Big fans of JRTs and Patterdales here
Everyone fed and watered here - plum tarte tatin big hit
Clari - those look like daffs to me
Verdun - we could all have moved into the castle and shared the council tax
Yes, I'm confused by 20 pillowcases too
I would plant them now - my peony has had shoots above ground for quite a while now - the weather's not harming it - they're very tough.
Some helpful info here http://www.kelways.co.uk/page/peony-care/30/
Matty - that's such lovely news to hear Now put your feet up with me and have a cuppa
My parents had a Cedrus deodara aurea in their last garden - they planted it when my daughter was born 37 years ago - it's a gorgeous and elegant tree - the space where it stands looks roughly the same size as that part of your garden (if that makes sense )
I have no objection to Nigel (dog) being in the background when things are going on in the garden - that's the way gardens are - I wouldn't want Nigel's fans' enthusiasm for him to take over the programme - but I don't think that has happened.
Now if we were talking about Pdoc taking over the programme - that would be a different matter
Rb - commiserations to your OH - I must say that I'm feeling much better in myself at the moment - able to do stuff (indoors, not going outside - the wind's like a knife). I've made a cottage pie and cleaned up the kitchen. I'll make the pud when I've had a bit of lunch ...
