It's under the cardboard box behind the Christmas decorations,Dove.

 It may well be B3, but I've phoned OH who says it may be on the shelf under the BBQ which is in the garage with it's plastic cover on ... who would put an extension cable reel there???

We have ambitions to put proper garage shelving racks along one side of the garage so we can organise it all - it's just that at the moment it's full of boxes of the Aged Ps' stuff - at least now they've both passed on we can justifiably sort through it and donate at least half of it to Bro - after all he has a large farm and associated buildings not to mention a farmhouse to put the boxes in

Think they were meant to indicate active posts, but given that most of the Latest Posts were 'active' I always felt they were superfluous .............. still can't find the extension cable ..........

If one or two of them could join me in the garage looking for the extension lead for the mower that would be helpful ......... otherwise the lawns will have to wait for tomorrow when OH is sure he'll be able to find it

I suspect they're all outside in the garden like me  ... it's that time of year and that sort of weather

Have been searching garage for the extension cable for lawnmower - in the end I phoned him at work - he says he'll find it and mow the grass tomorrow 

Hosta, have a lovely laksa   glad the knee's improving   BL I'm sure tomorrow will be fabulous 

Wonky, I always had the sneaky suspicion that I was being taken advantage of by one or two of those young men none of whom seemed to have parents with cars

Love them, but don't tell the slugs and snails you're getting some - they'll throw a party

 Thank goodness for that -I thought it was just me   perhaps it's an East Anglian thing 

Invasive Species

Posted: 07/05/2016 at 11:36

The problem is that some people don't care - a next door neighbour at a previous house filled his back garden with Himalayan Balsam - he knew that it was invasive - he was an awkward character who loved the flowers and the bees they attracted.  He didn't give a damn about his neighbours' gardens and he was only renting the house for a few years so he didn't care about the long term effects in the garden either.
