Is it a nice waterproof one Dove?

Fridays are part of my weekends - for the time being anyway 

 Work in the morning so I'm off to bed.  Night all  

See you tomorrow.

I'd like a plant like this...

Is it a particularly rainy part of the country where you are LF?

Scabious always do well here too, and they can also get very mildewy  - same family though.

Ooh err....

Rarely suffer from it here to be honest...too fracking wet in these here parts!

Looks like one of the Knautias LF. Pic is a bit blurry when I enlarge but that would be my guess 

Backfilling hole for laying lawn

Oh dear - that's a bit tricky 

Is there no access nearby at all? Perhaps you can get some friends to bring some buckets and spades...

A large amount of plastic laid down on the floors will be a must I think!

Help with choice of hosta

I never use the pellets either Verd and Hostafan. You're so right about blackbirds - I love watching them rake around among leaves. Thrushes are great snail hunters too.

That's a great tip - the bits of suet treat. I might try that

I'm sure Verdun could sing something for you BL. He's apparently very good at the Ying Tong song....

err well...on second thoughts 

I know what you mean about the house being quiet... radio or tv on just makes it feel you have company and can help a lot. 

what's still flowering in your garden?

Interesting Verdi. I always forget about the light levels - and of course we all have differing conditions which has a big impact.  You have  milder winters so many plants are hardy with you that wouldn't stand a chance with me. We get light till later in the day because we're farther north so that makes a difference and  so on. I've got Verbena bons which are as green as they were last summer and lots of plants which should look pretty sad and tired by now are looking ready for the new season.
