Jack - it's lovely that you're so enthusiastic about your garden. Be warned - it's a lifelong obsession and may take over your every waking moment!

Lovely pix fidget. That avenue with the hedges and that vista....hmmmm...drool...

I like Trilliums too. They're very unusual. Not sure I'm patient enough for them!

Is that your OH in the pic - with the pale blue shirt and the hat?....

Pinkypoo is new and having trouble with putting pix on that will enlarge to get ID for shrubs etc in a new garden on another thread.  Said I'd bump this thread up because David might be able to help a bit with the techie wotsits.

Nice spuds 

I waved my wand on that poppy KEF. Honest guv...

Rain here and none too warm. I'll be able to do my weed n feed soon.

Slate patio sounds nice Dove. I was thinking of one for here once I do the grass but not sure. Had another thought on the Ophio. Square lead planter with them round the edge and a 'cone' of Holly.

Bumping up  for Pinkypoo to get techie help - although the thread was on first page anyway 


Where are the kittens and mittens  then KEF? 

Help!! - new gardener!

I'm not techie enough Pinkypoo - Salino helped me with putting the pix on here by suggesting using an external site for the photos, so I've got mine on Photobucket. I think I'm just lucky with my camera or something because mine just seem to be the right size when I transfer them from the Windows thingy on the laptop. DavidK's camera thread art? David's very techie- he should be able to help 

I'll see if I can bump the thread up and you could post on it for help Pinky.

Oh Victoria - that's vile... What you need is barbed wire on the inside of the fence. He'll only lean on it the once after that.  Or  I could send you some spare Blackthorn hedging - that'll stop the b*****.

I've got one ( Mr. Nosey Parker) who walks round with his cats - I know, don't ask - and chucks his fag ends in....

And the postmen who drop the elastic bands in your borders on the way in and out - why are people so lazy and thoughtless?

Smashing pix as always 

KEF - I fancy some of those parrot tulips but we can often get such wild weather when tulips are flowering so i'd have to give it some thought. Need a sheltered little spot for them.

Forester that border's looking really mature and attractive. Isn't it lovely when you see the hard work all coming together?

Berghill - I only have one complaint...I could have done with an intermission and the lady coming round with the choc ices and popcorn while I enjoyed the film!  Can you arrange that for our  next viewing please? 

Lovely as ever.   As Dove says - you work so hard to keep it all together.

Anyone involved in Government's Green Deal?

I looked into that a while  ago too art because the boiler here could do with updating. Someone was going to contact me....sigh.....
