That sounds to me like a brilliant idea Obelixx. 


Lovely phone call from bestest friend this evening. Don't meet up often now but it's great to speak now and then. 


Time for bed now ... Sweet dreams all

That looks very much like Rosa 'American Pillar' http://www.davidaustinroses.co.uk/american-pillar 


It's been a popular rose for quite a few years now - certainly since I was a child ... and that's quite a long while.

He had the serious advice ... he made excuse after excuse as to why it was too noisy or too much effort etc ... which is why I suggested he found someone else to do it for him ......... 


Abuse?  None that I can see ... gentle ribbing maybe ... but then some people take themselves very seriously

LG ((hugs))  come and sit on the sofa with me and watch the tennis ... we can both put our feet up on my big Brazilian leather pouffe   It's sometimes tough being 27 isn't it ?  We don't bounce like we did when we were 26 


There's a wren singing in the garden ... it's so loud I've had to turn the tennis commentary up

Chicky, I maligned you ........... I'd imagined you were stretched out in a shady hammock  with a good book all weekend ... a glass of something white and chilled in your hand 


Trying to restart garden, but the weeds love it

Hi RTWOD (great name  hope you don't mind abbreviation tho' or I'll be here all day )


I agree with Topsoiled and Hogweed ... cut the grass and edge the beds ... it will then look like a garden .


Then water the beds one evening, giving them a good soaking.  The next day get a small hand fork and something to kneel on and weed the beds (the roots will be easier to get out as you've watered the night before).  Wear a sunhat and sunscreen and treat the whole operation as a sort of Zen experience,  meditative and contemplative ... something to be done methodically and thoroughly and not rushed.


When you've done that stand back and take pride in what a difference you've made and take some photos to show us ... then you can start to plan for the next steps ... will you want a total redesign or just some replanting?
