I think since this thread was started over two years ago, the original poster has probably sorted her grass by now! 

What's the star in your garden right now

My last post was all mixed up - was going to say 'is that what that is' and changed to 'is that her' - glad you got the gist..

Oldest small fairy had a friend at primary school who's baby brother looked like Les Dawson - still did the last time I saw him 

naughty fairy...

Only had eyes for the plant KEF 

 I had a tiny double flowered campanula many years ago -  Elizabeth Oliver. Is that what that her?

And such a pretty pot KEF

Thanks bekkie. A girl at work has just had her first baby too. I had to laugh - she sent a pic to one of the other girls on Thursday, and my sister sent a pic to me yesterday of her new granddaughter. They  look the same as each other! 

 I still think  all babies look the same - like Sid James 

The changing colour of Hydrangeas

It's kind of in the nature of the plant benjy. They gradually fade and then start to show off  their washed, autumnal shades -  that's the only time I like the pink and blue ones which is why I don't have them!  


Ideas for privacy solutions where Dry & Shady,

Very good point Joe. Always  better to replace rather than cover up, but you're right - it depends on who owns it. Lots of people have gone to the expense of replacing fences only to find it's not their property to start with. It can have repercussions.

Are your ears still ringing Dove? I said - ARE YOUR EARS STILL.....

Great news for you Clari. It makes a huge difference when you want to get up in the morning rather than just having to 

More babies in my family too - my nephew and his wife had a baby on Thursday - another girl - to go with the 3 yr old twins they already have. I'm far too young to be a great aunt. Only 27 after all... 

Did anyone see those beautiful, commemorative ice sculptures on the news?  Each tiny, melting figure represents a life lost in the First World War. Incredibly moving.

 Rain on it's way apparently, so perhaps that trip to the nursery later.

 Off for a look round to catch up here.

Mice or possibly Mouse

Northern Lass - you're absolutely right - no such thing as 'one' mouse.  We set traps every night for quite a while when they were getting into the electrics cupboard - it would have been impossible to block up every point of entry in that house anyway. Since  the previous owners weren't exactly good housekeepers, the mice had made themselves very much at home. I had to 'muck out' that cupboard  

Removing easy to reach food sources helps a lot - they're opportunists. A nice cosy house is a better bet for security than the big bad outdoor world too.
