Tina it's sad when we're getting excited about some painting isn't it? I was admiring the fence yesterday after daughter and her friend did some planks on Tuesday and I'd done some of the posts and caps so it was all neat. 

Nettles- good idea - and I'd have the excuse that it's for encouraging the butterflies and insect life! Could put them on the outside of the fence next to the pavement 

Dove I know what you mean about it stopping posts about kitchen gardens etc but perhaps with time enough people would realise the issue and word their thread title differently. We can only hope! I don't think I've seen any genuine threads with kitchen in the title but I may be totally wrong. They really have to try something to stop it or you'll be needing a salaried position.

Just when you thought you could retire!

Looks great Dove - isn't it amazing how quickly things establish? Do you get much time to sit on your nice seat!

And that naughty Verd didn't come and do your grass the other day after he promised...tut tut

I grow wild rocket and it's the gift that keeps on giving! It's never died despite the bad winters and since I first sowed it 2 years ago it's been perennial and I just split it. Use tons of it as it grows like mad in the pots and troughs it's in. Tough as old boots!

KEF the trouble is the ones I've seen barely look out of school 

Love that phrase of your OH's too!

Is manky just a Scottish term?

Verd- admit it- it's not carrots- you've just been heavy handed with the spray tan...

KEF can I get a load of those 'stabby' plants for my boundary?

Tina- think you need quite a fluffy (if that's the right word) roller if it's for masonry so that it gets into all the nooks and crannies.

No Frank/Dad- it's not just you. Used to just be a mid-life crisis - now it's early, mid and late-life. 

Tina why don't you try that onesie for the shopping?

I believe many people now don't even bother getting dressed to go to the shops to the point where Tesco - I think - has banned them. What is wrong with these people????

Manky - that's what they are.

Dove is fed up reporting it. I've just followed Tina's lead of yesterday and PMd Daniel asking if there's some way they can filter out any thread with the word 'kitchen' in it. Hopefully something will happen as it's very wearing.

fidget- I don't think they're even that smart!

Cake always a good idea whatever the circumstances Fairygirl,I meant one of those big chocolate gold wrapped medals though.

Dove's on the case again with the s*** monitoring. I'm hoping if I whisper it might go away.  Enjoy your break Dove...if only from that!

Gilly - I will award myself cake, cake.....and yet more cake 

and a cup of tea....

Whatever Andy's on - I want some...

Good luck with it art. Always best to go about it the nice way to start with. Your garden's so much more than just a collection of plants or a sum of money spent. Hope you get a good resolution.
