Fishing for sympathy!

Hope you're ok and will soon be back home. We'll make sure you have a big cake and proper birthday wishes if you name the day 

How long do you have to stay in?

New fence

Posted: 24/01/2016 at 10:03

Before you start the fence Lou - get a quote in writing (if not doing it yourself) show him it, and tell him he's jointly responsible for the boundary and liable for half the cost, as the situation isn't acceptable as it is. If the fence was his property originally, he's really liable for all of it. You can point that out to him as well and let him know that, out of the goodness of your heart, you're paying half. If you go ahead and build it, and pay for the entire thing, make sure he doesn't take liberties with putting 'stuff' on it. He's taking the p*** because he knows you'll just do it for the sake of your garden and your privacy. 

I don't know what distance you have to fill, but it's not cheap to do it properly, especially getting 'a man' in 

B****y neighbours. 

Camera Corner

I glued their feet to the fence Lesley....

Love the Hyacinth close up 

Is the starling one taken through a  window? My blackbird one was. It's amazing how well it turned out even when the windows weren't very clean!

I must read the booklet that came with the camera

Yes - she also writes the Vera books which are on tv with Brenda Blethyn. Dougie Henshall was at school with my ex husband. I like him - he's good in the part. Of course, the stunning scenery is a big factor for me

Shame to spend a lot of dosh on a good camera, not to get the best out of it......rather like buying a Ferrari and tootling along at 30 mph in it.   



I'll take a look at those 

A couple from today's outing. I was really 'liching' this lichen on the tree....


Ben Vane from down in Glen Loin. Lots of last week's snow has gone

Clematis not flowering

Posted: 23/01/2016 at 15:55

You ideally need a specialist clematis food or tomato food to encourage flowering Ian, but if you can offer more info about the type of clematis you have, that will help with pruning and feeding advice etc. 

If it's a spring/summer flowering variety, use slow release (like BF&Bone) as they start back into growth, with additional help from the other type once they form flower buds.They're hungry plants so they need a good supply of food so that give their best

Afternoon lovely people - you've been very chatty! Short, low level walk for me today - not very thrilling and I could have done a hill as a lot of the snow has disappeared since last weekend. Never mind - always next week 

Glad you had a good one chicky. Lovely to hear mr chicky is doing so well. Let him crack on - you can catch up at your own pace  

I met a small group of oddly dressed people  on the way back  (camouflage gear - including their dogs!) asking me the way to Ben Vane. Should also have said to them they would be lucky to get to the top before it was dark. Oh well.... 

Bit of cake would do me nicely right now Dove - thanks 

What is that fishy feet thing about? There used to be one in the posh shopping centre not far from me. Not any more. Enough to give me the 'dry boak' as we say here   

T'bird - that sounds like lots of work but a nice outcome. We'll want pix of course
