HELLO FORKERS!

No, grass is still a bit damp and front lawn looks a bit chewed, but it's better than it was and I've done the edges as well to stop the rampaging couch grass invading the bed. 

It had to be done this morning or not at all 'cos Verdun says it's going to rain tomorrow!

Maintenance only anyone?

"Sitting back and looking at them" is for planning the next bit - best done with a glass of vino collapso in your hand

Ducks on my pond

Posted: 04/10/2015 at 09:09

If they only visit occasionally you might find that come springtime a female might choose your pond area for her nest and nursery pool - they like somewhere secluded away from the randy drakes

Lovely, but I'd just let them come and go and not do too much to encourage them - if you get too many ducks too often the water will go green, they'll eat all the vegetation and poop all over the banks.  Visiting ducks are better than residents

Oooh Jo thanks - just what's needed

I'm going to pull some scruffs on and go out and mow the lawn just as soon as it's reasonable to make that much noise on a Sunday morning - 9am?  Then I can drink more coffee, listen to the Archers and have a shower and put my face on before meeting friends here http://www.watersedgewoodsend.co.uk/ for lunch  

Japanese Knotweed on neighbour’s property

This may be of interest http://www.solicitorsjournal.com/property/conveyancing/disclosing-knowledge-knotweed-needs-be-more-transparent

I would get the knotweed professionally treated then you can answer the pre-contract queries truthfully, provide the guarantee provided by the professional company and avoid the risk of litigation against you should the knotweed reappear.

Good morning Wonky ((hugs)) and anyone else who's about

I woke several times during the night thinking 'have they thought of this, that and the other?' but have tried to convince myself that you and Lovely Hub are grown ups and can manage all these things - my role nowadays is simply to provide cake

Good luck

Now to read back on what went on yesterday ...

HELLO FORKERS!

Hello folks!  I'm back, covered in speckles of a lovely Hazy Heather-covered Hills sort of colour - emulsion so it should wash off - just had a Chinese takeaway and I'm about to fall asleep in front of Dr Who so I'm going to scrub the paint off in the morning

Wonky and her lovely hub are working too hard, but there's no choice if they're going to get things done in time.  Friends are continually popping round to help them and they've made a huge difference already.  The plumber/kitchen fitter is arriving on Monday to fit new sink and other units. 

I'll read back properly tomorrow, but just picked up on Liri's dilemma ((hugs)).

HELLO FORKERS!

Oh dear Pdoc ((hugs))  Good morning

Promise your OH that you won't do anything without running it past us first

Right, off to help Wonky and her lovely hub ... SYL folks - have a good day

Prep for apple tree and ivy

It is a good idea to have something on the bottom of a raised bed positioned on concrete to stop the soil/compost from washing out of the bottom.

How deep is the bed?
