Don'tya just love Stevie Wonder?  We love his new record - so good, so now - just want to get up and shake my tail feathers every time I hear it - the man's a genius - and he's still here thank goodness - let's appreciate him while we've got him

Shed damp/condensation

Posted: 20/02/2017 at 09:44

I'd have considered a certain amount of condensation in these weather conditions par for the course in a standard garden shed. 


It's probably not rain getting in, but rather damp air condensing on cold surfaces e.g. window panes. 


What is the intended purpose of the shed?  Will a modicum of condensation from time to time be a problem?

I have a pretty pinky creamy variegated ajuga - if you'd like a bit I'll find a snippet with roots on if you PM me your address GD 


Here it grows on a bank and has 50/50 sun and shade in the summer.

Used to self- seed freely in pathways and cracks in wall mortar in a previous garden. Bees liked it.

Hope the birthday celebration goes well Liri.  She may not 'remember' them, but they may trigger good feelings which will colour the next little while and make her days 'sunny'. That's how I found Ma reacted to things like that

Not really a heat wave here either Pdoc, but definitely spring 


We used to keep Southdown sheep Pat, little docile teddy bears often traditionally used to graze orchards. It used to be said they if you painted a fence-line on the grass they would stay within it. I suspect that your Australian sheep are rather more feisty characters
