Wonky's garden is a riot of colour - ok so it needs a bit of weeding but she's been really really busy - one of the volunteers did some weeding, some deadheading and harvested cherry tomatoes for her while he was waiting for his piece of cake

Hosta, I'd give it a soak with Ariel Bio then an ordinary NOT HOT wash. 

I'm back from Wonky's and OH has fed me and is now washing up and making me a decaff.   I think Wonky and I will both sleep well tonight.  She and her lovely hub will still be in their old place tonight as Wonky's landlord visited today and it seems that the move can take place over a slightly longer time-frame as the landlord's electrician and plumber have work to do to bring the new flat up to standard - I may be helping tomorrow or I may go on Saturday - Wonky and I will decide tomorrow morning 

It was amazing today - there was an old cooker in the garden shed and a dead washing machine in the kitchen of the new flat - they were carried  out to the kerb and within 10 mins a chap was knocking on the door asking if he could take them for scrap - in 15 mins they were gone along with some other stuff that was going to be thrown away - it would have taken time and money for us to get rid of them

Now I'd better find out what you lot have been up to today - if I can stay awake ...

Right - heading off now - first to Waitrose for rubber gloves, coffee, milk and biccies - then to Wonky's place - see you later folks - have a good day!

Sickly privet hedge?

At our last house the neighbour's garden was like that - at least we got the benefit of the wildlife who lived  there and came into our garden to play and disport themselves

Is this unusual

Clari, you could loan us the children - they could form a chain and pass furniture from one to the other down the stairs and round to the back door - I could just stand there and crack a whip .................... whaddayamean didn't I used to work for Social Services???

Sickly privet hedge?

Although, of course at this time of year the debris in the bottom of hedges is just what the hedgehogs need for hibernation

It'd be a good way of getting the debris from the bottom of the hedge Buddyboy - maybe the neighbour would let her do it from their side of the hedge and blow the debris through to Sarah's garden where it could be cleared up and burnt?
