I thought you were talking about those other nice chaps in pix 5 and 7. You know - the fun guys.... 

Lovely day for a walk Dove and lovely pix. I love the light on the water 

David - he's gorgeous that little robin 

Watching the  bit about dippers on the programme about Loch Lomond last night,  reminded me of this

 They're such gorgeous little birds  

Pond Life

That's cos females have more sense...

My sister offered me her old preformed liner when I was  making my little pond here last year. I was glad the area was awkward and I had to turn her down! I think they're very hard to work with compared to liner.

Verdun - what are you like?  

Love that dream KEF  

I know what you mean about an event sticking with you - that's what triggers the weird dreams I think.

I had a very strange one recently. I was marrying Andy Murray. Obviously, he was already tired of the lovely Kim and was looking for another mother figure....

Mine was probably a reaction to seeing the cost of the Davis Cup tickets in Glasgow. I'd need to marry someone with Andy's bank balance to have afforded them!

It can be a nuisance if not every weed seed has been killed off. I'd be a little wary unless you're sure there's nothing weedy in there 

One lone survivor

I do pansyface. 

Quite moving - having that one on it's own. Last year I sowed some and they didn't germinate. Did some more and just one came through. More poignant somehow. 

I got a bit frustrated at work today. No one acknowledged the two minute silence except me. Was hoping nobody would ask me anything as I wasn't going to answer.

RB - re you thinking Dove had anus pain - that's because of the naughty place names!

And those neighbours you had are utterly pathetic  

Doc - I'd invest in a cheap video camera which you can set up and leave connected to the computer. I got one for under £30 on the t'interweb. No use at night (unless you had lights with sensors in the relevant areas)  I sit it on the window cill. You could site it at a relevant spot to catch anyone coming up the drive, or from a particular area. They're quite unobtrusive. Could be worthwhile if you feel this issue is escalating, as RB says. Oh - and the adults are as bad as the children nowadays. Complete trailer trash muppets.

Hope the new pooch perks you up a bit Pam. 

Yvie - did no one offer to help you up and see that you were ok? 

As I said - the adults are as bad...

Very expensive Verd - you won't get much change from £100...I certainly didn't..  

Dove - I hate that stage

You'll probably get a lot more than two Alex 

The biggest problem is getting them out the pots!

That's what our local one is like Dove, although it does have some plants outside  The inside area, which is much bigger, is mainly fripperies 

How many boxes of hankies have you got through? 

Don't be scaredy cat.....

Those plastic box balls and cones shouldn't be allowed to be sold. If you care enough to have a plant at the door, at least have a real one. They're hideous beyond belief 

The plastic ivy I've seen is even worse...what are they thinking? 

I used a Hebe buxifolia to give the same effect as a box ball. Virtually zero maintenance and looked superb all year round, despite being in an unsuitable spot. Lots of these little firs will do the same job very well and 'finish off' a front door.
