You may need these philippa...










Hope you can get someone to fix it before January 

Anyone done any gardening today?

I hacked back a cotoneaster now that the blackbirds have had all the berries. Tidied up  dead foliage in various places, and attached fairy lights to the rear fence

I think it needs a carefully placed piece of tinsel, Bob!

Hosta - I thought that too...

A dog that size would certainly keep the cats away though....

Think it was fidget that was on the ice cream RB. It's not really my thing except on a hot day, but thanks for the offer! A nice bit of cake would be good though. Looking forward to daughter's Christmas cake next weekend

Fantastic effect David. I started playing about with that setting on mine after you showed me what to do. Simple when you know how!  

Cute dog little-ann

It's just roofing battens from a builder's merchant. Horizontal timber on the bottom ( heavy duty 150mm fencing stuff) and similar along the top. They're attached to the posts that run through the timber boxes. Painted all the battens first, then screwed them to the top and bottom pieces, then another piece of matching timber on the front. There will be another piece along the top to completely fill it in.

I've been a busy fairy - outside in the spring weather hacking back the cotoneaster at the back of the garden which borders the rear lane. I wanted to wait till the blackies had eaten all the berries. Feel much better now for being outside and doing something constructive. I also sawed off a large branch of the pine tree to get the greenery for the lounge windowsill. Mission accomplished - and it's all dry  

Got the washing in too - almost dry 

and the birds now have a little fairyland of their own...
