OK, who's got it?

Some people have no shame. I hope they catch them. 

 It wasn't me by the way...

Someone told me when they went to buy a new house they were delighted that it had a good sturdy fence all the way round because they had a new puppy. When they moved in - the sellers had taken the entire fence with them....

Clearing a garden

Just make sure you keep a little seed back in reserve Mr T.  Someone round the corner from me did their little front lawn a couple of months ago and while most of it has grown beautifully, they had one bare patch which they've had to redo. At least it was only a small area - nothing like as big as yours, so much easier for them to sort. 

After a good day in the garden

Runny beak - re your scabby head comment - up here we say - 'I'm so hungry I could eat the poultice off a scabby wean's heid' ...a lovely image I'm sure you'll agree! 

Lyn  - are you half mouse?

We get all our exam results on the same day up here - didn't realise you got them on two different ones in England and Wales.

You could just have left the caterpillar bekkie - he could have made a nice cocoon in your pillow.

Dove's post at half six was the last one when I posted! Make sure Woody's pix go on the Gallery thread for anyone that doesn't pop in here Ggirl 

Wrists are fine thanks KEF- for now! Have a good day with Mum - -don't work too hard.

fidget - just as well you're organised  

I thought daughter had slept in for school so went to check- she doesn't have to be in first thing...stupid 6th year timetables  

Fingers crossed for smallest chicklet 

I shall have a little look round now and have a leisurely breakfast

Morning all. Glad you've had a lovely birthday Panda and you can get your new arch all planted now. 

Woody's terrace is a delight. I love his trompe l'oeil box hedge 

A dreich  dull day here so h****work today     

Which reminds me of Tim Vine's recent award winning joke about h****work.  'I'm thinking of getting rid of my hoover. Well - it's only gathering dust'....

but a visit to a friend later, so not all bad!   

My grass will have to wait till tomorrow or the weekend too Dove. 

Have a good day

It's just an annual cornflower Matt - 'Black Ball'. First time I've grown it and grew it for exactly that reason. Very easy and flowers constantly - I just keep deadheading it. Nice fine grey foliage. I can highly recommend it 

Is that a comma in your last pic? We don't get those here but loads of Torties, Peacocks and Red Admirals.

Night OL. 

I'm off too - got a school skirt to re hem 


Posted: 20/08/2014 at 21:19

Some bricks or timber and a double layer of plastic sheeting for the top will suffice as a basic cold frame OL. When a friend was getting new windows I took a couple of her old ones to make a cold frame. Should have taken a few more and made a proper tomato growhouse 


Posted: 20/08/2014 at 21:06

I'd think just somewhere sheltered and not too hot for now OL....oh no sorry - they'll definitely need the protection of a cold frame 

These GCs will sell any old tat won't they?
