So do I -  the Church Plain was covered - it was 6th June, my granny's birthday - way back when Wonky was a very Wee Womble indeed

I'm feeling hugely guilty. 

All this dry weather has had me in the garden, but I've not sown a single seed yet. Dry weather forecast for the next week too.

Me neither - as we're away for a few days I'm not starting until we get back. 

Glad you got some sleep at least Hosta ((hugs)).

Glad you've got time to sit down for a few minutes Wonky

I've decided to make hot cross buns to take to MIL's so the dough is proving while I have a swift coffee and go to get some petrol ...

Growing up on the farm in High Suffolk the woods and hedgerows were full of it.  We were on heavy clay - definitely alkaline.

Yep!  Whilst I loathe the cuts in disability benefits, I can't help feeling that IDS is preparing the ground for an alternative to Boris to challenge Cameron and an unpopular Osborne should the country vote for Brexit.  I've never yet noticed IDS doing anything that he couldn't twist to his own advantage ...

Whats best for screening a warehouse - upto 5-6m. Please see images.

I agree - closing yourself in with walls of dark evergreen would be worse than what you've got, making your garden and the rooms of your house dark and gloomy  - the two trees you already have will screen well when in leaf, and at least in the winter they provide a 'filter' (a bit like a net curtain).  Planting more trees would also impact badly on the growth of the trees you have.

The idea of providing visual interest to draw the eye into your garden is a really good one.  It may also help to have a water feature that makes a sound, again to draw your attention inwards.  In a few years you'll forget the warehouse is there.
