But when we get the weather ...nowhere on earth can compare

Techie prob grandma. Been like that since yesterday afternoon. I think the tech team know about it but it'll be Monday before they'll be able to look at it I expect.

It's more or less done Andy thanks. There are pics on a thread somewhere although I haven't taken one since the pond plants went in. 

Nice bit of sun today. Hope your mist clears lily and you get some sun too. Glad you had a nice evening. I loved Monty's French and Italian garden visits on TV. I think he's very good at those sorts of programme. He lets the scene do the talking.

Lovely to see you Andy. Hope you're keeping well since last hospital visit 

Thanks Verd. I only have twelvty hundred pennies. Will that be enough? 

Lovely day here too - washing to go out and more prep for grass area and paths if the aching limbs can stand it. Might even get the grass a little trim if it's dry enough. Could do with it.

I didn't think they were particularly hardy either although a garden a few doors away from me has one in the front garden. Not sure how long it's been there and last winter was mild. I'll see if it survives the cold wet ground it's in this winter.

I have thought you'd need a male for the berry production too, but if they all have berries and there are no other hollies round you...if it ain't broke Anthony 

Perhaps there's one tucked away in a garden that you can't see 

Enlarging a pond

Posted: 01/11/2014 at 08:39

If you're making it in a separate area you can do it anytime Stagbeetle, then just put the contents of your box into it using a bucket or similar to transfer everything. Rainwater is best for topping it up so if you can get the pond done now you'll get lots of rain over winter for filling it. Alternatively you can fill it up with the hose and then transfer your wildlife in when you're ready.

Morning all. That's a lovely pic of Verdi  Dove...

Man coming soon to fix boiler. Hate to think how much that will be. I'd have been better off getting a new one 

I'll wash all your dishes when I have some hot water...

Off for a look round while I have a cuppa
