Showing your age Sara-records! 

They're infuriating these ads- the adblockers are great though 

How did you get into gardening?

Tina- have you never seen Foghorn Leghorn? 

You haven't lived.....

Some unknown plants in my rockery

Agree Dove but there's so many varieties it would be impossible to tell which one!

Summer has arrived

Lovely paeonies Anthony and little-ann. They often get a battering up here from the wind and rain we tend to get just when they're flowering. They really are stunning plants and worth having even if the flowers are short lived. Which varieties are they?

Always told my girls 'never be frightened to ask questions' when they went to school. Told them it's the smart children who ask the questions not the stupid ones and a good teacher should see that. It's vital children learn about recent history then they can understand how things evolve, although they don't necessarily get better unfortunately. History was unbelievably dull when I was at school yet I now find  it fascinating. Many schools have a much better way of teaching it too so that it isn't dull.

I can see light Tina- but it could  be a near-death experience I'm having instead 

Mixing the concrete myself. The ready mix stuff is fine for the odd thing but I'd need two for every hole which would be a tad expensive.

I love blackbirds but not got any here. Hopefully they will come in once the garden becomes less  car park and more The sparrows are enjoying the feeder and the makeshift birdbath/minipond my daughter did for them. The robins have been in again too so it's getting better- less sterile.

Very hard to get that kind of stuff when you don't have transport Tina. Glad grandson is accommodating

I see what you mean John! Someone will need to hold me up soon never mind the fence! Some of that is in gardens across the other side of the footpath. Ground looks quite level but it isn't totally. Got a gate to put in next to house which I've almost finished and the 3 tall posts in first pic have to be cut at ground level and moved  Did the short one today which had to be dug out and moved because it wouldn't have been tall enough to reuse if I'd cut it. It was hard work - and a lot more concrete. 

I'm having a cup of tea now and some choccy bix

Gilly are the hummingbird ones the great big ones?

That midsummer prog last night had lots of moth stuff on it too. Was actually 3 programmes spread through the evening but missed the last one- fell asleep 

Lovely bit about red squirrels too. I'd recommend it to everyone if it's on iPlayer.

I'm seeing these posts in my dreams now. Every time I click on 'latest posts'  here I keep expecting to see a picture of them...

Managed to get rid of lots of big snails today too. Maybe I could sell them to a French restaurant...anyone have Raymond Blanc's number?

Bev it's so annoying when you want a bit of help and it doesn't happen.
