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?

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

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!

Took a pic of some daffs I picked yesterday. Tresamble, Thalia and Cheerfulness:



Driveway ideas

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'.

You'd be there for ever more painting it chick. It took me about 2 hours to paint each

6 x 2 piece on the fence. It's the same kind with the smaller holes. 

Hubby can always hang his coat on the 'little man'

Chick - it's really superb. Is that Verdun on the pergola to keep interlopers out?  Hedge will be lovely in a year or two and it'll really set it all off.

Now you just need to get him making them more quickly and he can have a nice little cottage industry to keep him busy in his man shed! 

I won't offer to come and paint all the trellis...

David - that's what you get for trying to photograph dandelions...

I'd agree. The pic distorts when I enlarge - but that's how mare's tail looks when it first emerges.

Can I borrow your hubby chick? Could do with an extra pair of hands for the heavy stuff. Veg garden sounds great - has he done some of his lovely metal work?
