That's gorgeous Pat. I've said it before here, but , it's so important to look up isn't it?  I think we often forget how wonderful the stuff above our head is!  Cloud formations are stunning.

I'm much more aware of it when I'm on a hill on a day like Sunday. The buzzards were out and the stags bellowing up in the corries, so looking up to try and see them gives a whole new perspective.

Morning all/afties Pat. Dog seems happy enough - how are you keeping these days? 

A day off chicky? How very dare you 

DD - it's all progress. You'll have days when it seems difficult again, and a bit like I was on Sunday on that hill - one step forward and about three back - but it's like the old question of how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time...  

Chilly here but dry and bright. The girl on the Scottish news has a lovely rising sun behind her   

Tulips in pots

Three times the depth  of the bulb for planting, but it's less important in pots. For tulips, that's about five or six inches of soil above the bulb. You can plant more densely in a pot than in the ground too.

Good to see you T'bird. I was going to let you know there was another Grand Tours series on, but thought you must have been on holiday as you'd not been on. A 'grand tour' of your own!  

Glad it was bonny for you

Garden grass Dying

Posted: 04/10/2016 at 17:50

Possibly some leatherjacket damage too, but the wet conditions are  the most likely reason. Perhaps it's time for a rethink.  An opportunity to have some lovely shrubs - as you've already considered.  

It can be much nicer than just having a patch of grass - year round colour and interest if you choose well. Often easier to manage rather than constantly trying to get grass to grow in a less than perfect site   

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Photobucket, or any other outside site,  no longer works here Johnny. You can put pix on directly now, using the camera icon in the top right hand corner above teh box you type your post in. You may need to reduce the size though - nothing bigger than about 2.5 MB is uploading just now. We have a dedicated camera thread too, for all 'non garden' photos,  and everyone would love to see your photos on there. Plenty of snowy hills, and all sorts of other things, on there already  

It's called 'Camera Talk'. I've just posted on it so it should be on the first page or so just now. I have Canadian relatives in Vancouver and the surrounding area. Spectacular scenery there too  

I cut sweet peas down and watered a couple of pots after getting in from work. That's about it!
