Fabulous photos fidget  

I particularly like the orange sponges - that wouldn't look out of a place on a gallery wall as a piece of contemporary art!  Really interesting about the turtles. Us humans need to get our act together right enough.

and you found Nemo!....

The girl's name (narrator) is on the end credits.

We didn't have the programme last night - don't think it's on tonight either as we have other things on - so I can't comment on it, but people use their gardens in different ways, and all are valid. It may not be to our taste, but anything that gets people out using their gardens is a good thing. Far better than the ones who leave it like a tip full of rubbish and weeds which invade other gardens, and in time, it may lead to them becoming interested in having plants and greenery instead.

I'd agree about revisiting all the makeover plots. Wonder if the owners of the instant ones get some sort of guidance plan for maintenance.

Mint would definitely need that!

I do it with lots of plants and certainly bulbs,  but mainly if they're being used as a stop gap and they usually get a permanent place after they've finished. Is this a bigger shrub or something like bamboo MP2? Success does depend quite a bit on what the plant is.

YOUR view of music over the years.

Are you really Ronnie Corbett David?  

Having been brought up in a jazz musician's household, I listened to classical music and jazz from an early age and was lucky enough to see people like the late great clarinetist Jack Brymer and my Dad's friends Cleo Laine and Johnnie Dankworth perform. I love all kinds of music though, from opera, blues and jazz to folk and loud rock, depending on how I feel. I'd never disapprove of anything my girls listened to either as I know how it feels to have that disapproval as a teenager listening to 'modern music' which was 'just a noise' apparently.

There are loads of very talented people out there today - just as there has been for decades -  and centuries.

Morning all. Not been for a couple of days really so only had a skim rather than  a proper look.

I get angry when I hear these issues about council cutbacks. I don't see councillors cutting back on their private cars to take them a few hundred yards to some junket. We have a situation where they spend 30 grand a year delivering children by taxi to schools here because they've got a placement and, rather than moving into it as it's more expensive, they live outside the area and expect someone else to get them there...taxpayers in other words. You couldn't make it up. 

I hope you get a result MrsG - keep poking the bear.

Did you try putting a bandage on Mr KEF ? That works for most things KEF... over the mouth is usually the best place...

Clari - is your real name Nicholas?   Get it? That's a quality joke 

I'd better go and have a look round before I come up with any more of those. Have a  good day at t'mill any workers

BL - I absolutely agree. Many people will spend thousands doing up a room in their house with new furnishings, paint , flooring etc - especially if it's a kitchen or bathroom-  but they think a few hundred quid will be enough to make a garden into a paradise!

Perhaps more people will realise that with a bit of hard work and a fairly modest sum, they can have something very attractive which suits their needs perfectly.

Lawn problems

I'm sorry if this sounds simplistic. It's not the OP's dog - it's the daughter's - so why does she  have to  bring the dog when she visits?
