Designing from scratch

Well done Rich - you've achieved a huge amount and it's so satisfying when you do it yourself isn't it? Love the decking on the angle - much harder to do than a square or rectangle . I bet you enjoy the rendering. Practice icing cakes - it's the same idea! 

Cute chicks too

Well done Clari - had a look at one of your 'kitchen' posts...

Glad you're ok today Verd and Pam. The weather on the news looks horrific. I see the blame game has started in Westminster - a big boy did it and ran away apparently....

A bit more pleasant here today but snow forecast again for tomorrrow. Hope we miss it again. Sympathies to your son Pam. It's the difficult side of owning animals. Even hardened vets are affected when it happens.

Don't eat too much cake Ggirl. Have a lovely day 

Off  to work in a moment so have a good day all.

Is it a nice waterproof one Dove?

Fridays are part of my weekends - for the time being anyway 

 Work in the morning so I'm off to bed.  Night all  

See you tomorrow.

I'd like a plant like this...

Is it a particularly rainy part of the country where you are LF?

Scabious always do well here too, and they can also get very mildewy  - same family though.

Ooh err....

Rarely suffer from it here to be honest...too fracking wet in these here parts!

Looks like one of the Knautias LF. Pic is a bit blurry when I enlarge but that would be my guess 

Backfilling hole for laying lawn

Oh dear - that's a bit tricky 

Is there no access nearby at all? Perhaps you can get some friends to bring some buckets and spades...

A large amount of plastic laid down on the floors will be a must I think!

Help with choice of hosta

I never use the pellets either Verd and Hostafan. You're so right about blackbirds - I love watching them rake around among leaves. Thrushes are great snail hunters too.

That's a great tip - the bits of suet treat. I might try that
