Filling in a Small Pond

Posted: 08/09/2016 at 15:13

Six inches of topsoil isn't a lot for plants to get their roots into.

Also, as rain washes that soil into the rubble below, the topsoil will be less and less - I think you have too much rubble in there and the infilling needs to be more carefully thought out - depending on the plants you want to grow there.

OH blames the blackbirds for most things - apparently they're responsible for the dollop of butter that appeared on the agapanthus on the terrace a couple of summers ago 

Brilliant sunshine and 25C here at the moment - a line of washing 'dancing in the breeze'   Sorry folks 

We're out this evening ... a friend is having a 'walking about read-through' of his first play at the local theatre ... very exciting for him!  I had a couple of plays performed by a local amateur group some years ago - brilliant experience if a bit nerve-wracking 

Paint colour for this wall?

Good idea Fairy - but remember that a colour with the sunlight on it will look very different when it's in the shade.  Sorry to harp on about it, but it really does make a difference

The battery in the kitchen clock needs replacing too ... I'd better find the spare batteries ... I'm going to do some baking and the clock on the oven isn't reliable as the buttons sometimes get pressed accidentally

Does anyone know what I've done with my watch - the everyday one?  I thought I'd put it on the bathroom windowsill before my shower, but it's not there now
