collared doves

Posted: 02/07/2016 at 13:27

The sparrows are currently my biggest customers at the bird feeder Michael. House sparrows though. One pair brought the babies for a visit last year, shuffling along the fence, chivvied by their proud Dad 

I like the collared ones very much KT - they seem to be thin on the ground here these days, which is a great shame. I had them regularly in the garden round the corner, and it's only about seven years since I lived there.

My carex evergold is a favourite hiding place for the giant ones here. 

I take great pleasure in removing and lobbing them...

Good one pp!

Or my personal favourite - Elton's  # I'm still standing, better than I ever did....

My new favourite Clematis is 'Belle of Woking'. What Clematis makes you happy?

Nelly Moser possibly Patsy?

obelixx- it crossed my mind too that B of Woking wasn't that rare, but I enjoyed the story   

Rouge Cardinal is another favourite of mine and I might get one for this garden. Like EV, it flowers profusely and for ages. 

I'm less keen on the large flowered types as they get battered by the wind here.

I'd like to have enough room to have an area of grass to devote to clover and prunella and lots of other bits and bobs for the bees

One day....

Pat on the back doc  

I can completely understand how you and OH feel though 

Hopefully just a shower T'bird, although if they're like ours, that means an hour of rain with five minutes of dry...  

I was hoping for some guilt free, tennis watching leisure time too, as the weather's pants here...

pansyface - toodle oo tea. Brilliant !  You need a whole 'loved you and left you' menu DD!  

Lou - my sympathies. Similar story for me, though not with ex husband but recent partner. So glad you got there in the end. So many still suffer.

Now what about a song girls - it's a cliche I know, but....  # I will survive....oh as long as I know how to love ....

Oh DD - I'm so happy for you  

Remember to get the best bits of furniture....

There will be ups and downs, but you can cope with the downs if the ups are halfway decent. 

Your tea room will be the best in the country, knowing how hard you work at everything you do. 

Loads of love to you and Charlie xxx

Long flowering plants

I fly of course.....

Small set of steps pp. But in theory, most of the plants take care of  themselves, so very little need for them. Poke a few seeds in, trim stuff occasionally

Does look more like Helianthus Mr J
