Morning all - another lovely day here. Best make the most of it - this could be our spring and summer combined  

Am I too late for cake...I suppose it's a bit wrong to have it for breakfast isn't it? 

Off for a quick look round the forum to see what's what. Watched G'sW - think I'm enjoying Beechwood far more now. Meant to say - was it you MrsG that was worried about your Hydrangea paniculata? Jim is doing pruning on them - so try and catch it tomorrow 

All right .... own up .... which ones of you do this?

I have no neighbours, i stamp on them.

Lyn - that's rather cruel. What have the neighbours done to deserve that?....


art - I think it would be very entertaining! I was good at slug tossing some years ago when I had an unpleasant (and lazy) neighbour.   I used to chuck them over my garage into his garden - and I use the term loosely...midden is what it was. I was fed up leaning over the fence and pulling willow herb out to stop it invading my garden 

Raised beds

Yes Daisy - Steve's right. If they're sitting directly on the paving it would be a good idea to line them with plastic but I'd make sure you have holes for drainage as they could become saturated if there's heavy rain and it can't get away. The plastic helps prevent the wood rotting too.

I'm burnt too OL - just from the sun though 

Glad I don't have to do that stuff anymore - had it down to a fine art when the girls were young. Nearly always had their parties at home. Chaos for a while but they enjoyed it all so much. 

Verd- I love crocus. Still got some flowering here. Glad your mum had a nice day. 

Been outside all day apart from mid afternoon for a quick sandwich. Best day here since last August/September. Got loads done. Planting, painting, tidying and splitting -plants not trousers thankfully  

Going back out after tea to cut the grass if I don't get too comfy...

Lovely and warm here Dove 

Not often I can say that is it!

Just having some lunch. Been very busy tidying up and sorting the growhouses for tomatoes later on. More fence painted and might go and do some weeding, round the new hedge, on the outside of boundary etc. Will cut grass too.

Good luck tomorrow Mike x

Have you got someone who will go with you and bring you home as well?

I was outside listening to the radio when they had it on the news - made me laugh! 

I have to admit it - yes - but they go out on the road not my neighbour's garden!

Driveway ideas

Posted: 18/04/2014 at 10:26

Mark - sorry if I sound thick, but do you need all the driveway? If not, how about removing a good bit of it and replacing with something nicer and more useful. You could extend your grass across and have a nice border or trees for instance, especially as you seem to have a nice outlook there which you could 'borrow'.
