Stressful day fidget. Hope all is ok with your Dad, although by the sound of it, he'll be trying to do a Steve McQueen on  a motorbike before too long...

got some flowers forming on my bargain strawbs I got last year. Forget what they're called. Might get some more sometime as the girls like them - I'm not keen.

Off to organise dinner before I have to collect daughter 

North, South, East or West Facing

Yes -north facing Scott. Is the border at the far boundary or at your feet? If it's alongside  the patio then it's north facing but if it's running along your far boundary it will be south facing.

I find the odd random one now and again and chuck it out beside the bird feeders for the birds to get so perhaps you could do that in the meantime Mary - if it's possible!

What shrub is this>

On a different note - lovely shrub Forester - what does it smell like if you can describe it that is!

The nettles can be made into a liquid feed Harriet. You soak them in a bucket of water and when they've rotted down you strain off the liquid and dilute it. I forget the proportions but someone else will give you a correct ratio.

Hi all - just having a quick look before I go back to work. Think I'll have some cheese tonight to see what I can come up with! 

Clari - a Glaswegian translation of that crest would be 'nae danger'....

Purple rucksack?

Rain's gone off a bit here but those thundery clouds are looming. Not sure I'll get anything done outside later after work. 

Winter - Prince William? Really?? 

What to do after daffs?

Posted: 07/05/2014 at 19:25

I'd agree with obelixx. A nice continuation of flowering for when the daffs have done their thing. I have lots of low planting in a narrow border with daffs tucked in behind and amongst it. If it's not too sunny, Tiarellas and Heucheras are great. I also have crocus, snowdrops and primulas in mine which will flower before the daffs.

Verdun and his summer pants...I don't know....

I might have to bring forth a plague of 'summat' just to teach him ...

Clari - I even have to wear one in bed...

Apart from in July

Sandwich Dove...

They're determined little b****** aren't they? I saw a tv prog a few years ago where the owners had erected an assault course in an attempt to see how far they could go with trying to out fox them. It was hilarious!

It's like bloomin winter here -wet, windy and 8 degrees  

I used to like Campari with lemonade - tasted like grapefruit. Don't drink so haven't had it in donkey's years.

Edjacash, edjucash,eddjuc....'learnin' stuff' I calls it 

KEF I know a joke about a man going hunting and encountering a bear in the woods but I don't think it's suitable for here...
