Morning everyone 

lots of rain around now....what happened to our sunshine? I blame George Osborne 

What has your neighbour done now Punkdoc?  He sounds a real a.....e.   Maybe we should all go back to how my dad got us to settle issues...put on the boxing gloves.    

Not a good idea for me Verdun - I'd always lose even tho I was in the right

If you're itching to do some gardening today you can come here - the sun is shining and I've got an extension to the veg patch that needs digging

Have a look at this video

also, have a look at last week's Big Dreams, Small Spaces (Series 2, Episode 5)

where lots of veg were grown in raised beds.  You could protect similar beds from rabbits by putting a post at each corner and fixing wire netting around the beds.  It wouldn't be as big a job as fencing rabbits out of the entire garden.

Good luck

Good morning all   G'day Pat   and a special Hello to Pdoc ((hugs))   - hope today is better than yesterday and that the problems get sorted soon.

Well, I didn't expect to wake up to blue skies and sunshine   the rain yesterday evening was horrendous - we had to turn the tv up to hear it - but now it's a gorgeous morning and the birds are singing  and the pigeons cooing and the peregrines at Norwich cathedral have four eggs and have started sitting

Hope you can get into the Secret Garden soon

Monty's Dog

David ... we're not daft ... we know that scenes are planned, story boarded, scripted, rehearsed and filmed probably several times.  I think it's amazing how co-operative the robin is.

Like a lot of people, Monty gardens with his dogs, a lot of the viewers like seeing them.  My assumption is that, given that Nigel has had some health problems, the Don family wanted to get a younger dog rather than feel totally bereft when Nigel eventually goes to that great field of tennis balls in the sky.  If you want to think differently, so be it.
