Good morning all   G'day Pat

Fidget, MA took some time out from the board.  He returned as Hortico but doesn't post very often. 

Don't wish to cast aspersions but I think there may have been some Friday night pop around, or funny fags or something along those lines at least   Can't make head nor tail of a lot of it, and I've been to art school!!!!!!!!

Overcast and dull here this morning 5.9C at the moment.  It went down to 4.4C overnight.  There's a male chaffinch sitting atop the ash tree shouting his head off - I guess his missus is nesting in the neighbour's shrubs nearby.  The bluetits were busy around the nestbox yesterday too

Well, I've given the honeysuckles a good cutting back and I've stood and stared at the corner where the tree was trying to work out how we're going to re-design it.  Still haven't completely made up my mind - think I need OH out there with me, on the other end of a tape measure

Poor Flatters   Because in essence he's a stray who set up home in Wonky's shed, he has a life that she doesn't know about.  She's taken him to the vet to be treated for abscesses and paid for his medication, he's had him neutered and pays for his jabs and worming, and she feeds him twice a day and has given him a lovely snug 'Cat Cave' in the shed and she takes her cat Harrie out into the garden to play with him every if the weather is fine, but what does he get up to when the rest of the world is at work or asleep at night?

Gabion walls for sound-proofing garden

Posted: 11/03/2016 at 13:51

I've worked in music venues, concert halls etc and a family member is a sound engineer - to absorb and deaden sound you need soft materials (like the bark suggested by Obelixx).

Hard materials, like brick and stone, will bounce sound around and make things worse. 

What is your weather like?

....  severely pruned the 2 honeysuckles either side of the arch....masses removed.  

Snap! Verdun - I've just been cutting back a couple of honeysuckles too.  But it's clouded over and turned chilly out there - my hands are burning now that I've come indoors Brrrrrrrrrr!

1960s 1970s inspired bouquet

Princess Margaret's wedding bouquet (1960) was white orchids and stephanotis.

Princess Alexandra's (1963) carried freesias, narcissi, stephanotis and lilies of the valley.
