Music in the Garden

Tee hee - I used to do that in the studio at Art School, head phones on, painting away, singing along - much to the consternation of the younger students

Because ours is being played in the studio it's really quiet - the neighbours can't hear it and I can hear the birdsong over it.  I woudn't play loud music in the garden, and thankfully neither do the neighbours - (just their windchime, but that's another story). 

Pruning raspberries

Nope, cut them down now - mine had shoots when I cut them back 3 weeks ago.  They'll send up new growth from underground.

You can buy 'mats' of sedums to establish on roofs - you need to get the sub-strata right first to ensure good drainage etc, and ensure the roof is strong enough.  Once the plants and growing medium hold water you'd be surprised how heavy it gets!

Tom Petty - Free fallin - one of the best records ever - you can play that one to see me off when my time comes!

And The Big O is god!!!  

and  I'm also a big Chuck Berry fan

and I've adored Placido for years 

I didn't see that du Pré programme - unless it was a repeat - I saw one a few years ago.  

Verdun, my zimmer needs a wash and brush up - you had it last - your turn
