wall v hedge

Posted: 26/07/2015 at 08:35

I like walls and I like hedges - I'm wondering whether there's a way of constructing a wall that is suitable for your garden, which could offer more to wildlife than just a straightforward brick wall ...........

Glad you're ok Kleipieper

I remember the storm of 1987 very well - our village was cut off by fallen trees for several days and we had no electricity for more than a week .

Good morning all

Dry here with some blue patches (so far, but I have heard the forecast ... )

Think a bit of wandering around and dead-heading will be done if possible this morning, then if the forecast is right the day will consist of roasting a chicken and a butternut squash, and knitting on the sofa in front of a film or I might even watch the F1 if there's no athletics on ...

Hope everyone has a good day

Didn't weep - somehow she was too positive and got too much enjoyment from her garden for me to feel sad - but amazed and as Steve said, humbled.  How can anything every be too difficult or too much of a pain for me to do ever again?
