Can't agree more with the whole 'phone' issue.

T'bird - the concert nonsense is ludicrous - why DO people want to watch it through a tiny screen after paying to SEE an artist? 

But the funeral takes the biscuit....it seems that some people can't live their life any other way than through their phone. There is no respect or consideration any more either. I despair of the human race at times, and yet, there will be another story which comes along to make you feel there IS hope for us all.

The doubles have been great too Liri - I agree. I've watched some of the men's, and I saw a little of Heather Watson's match yesterday,  but I have to fit it in round other things. Work mainly! It's seriously affecting my tennis watching... 

Just had a stroll round the garden...well I went as far as the grass.... 

Back to low teens after reaching 16 yesterday...yes, 16. That was the first day it managed to get to that temp. Positively tropical  

It's not unpleasant though - no wind, just wet.  Struggled to get double figures most days. Looks like hole filling, sanding and h****work for me...and tennis...

Planting lily bulbs late

Just plant them Caz. They won't benefit from being stored. Better in the ground or in a pot if your soil's unsuitable

Hope it settles for you. I know what you mean about it being worse when you get a bad night after a lot of decent ones. I got so used to rubbish sleep that I felt weird when I got a good night! 

Intended trying to get out tomorrow as last night it was looking marginally better for Glen Lyon. This morning it's poor again. It could change several times again though. Pretty much the same everywhere unfortunately so it's a case of trying to find a decent prospect. Should have gone out somewhere yesterday after work when it was good...tennis got in the way....

I  was assuming you were doing ok so didn't want to mention it in case it jinxed you! I'm sleeping much better - will I send you some 'vibes? 

Weed n Feed

Granma - what it really comes down to is - how do you want your grass to look. If you want centre court at Wimbledon you need a LOT of time to put into it. If you just want a reasonable green space, you don't.

Regular cutting and a bit of weed and feed in spring will give you a nice 'lawn' to enjoy through summer

Wouldn't water with some washing up liquid do the job well enough? Surely it would be done every day if you have a dog too.

Great work Sonny. Love your steps. Satisfying to see the changes isn't it?  

If you're looking for suitable plants for north facing areas, just start a thread and put plenty of info re what you like and what you're looking for and you'll get loads of advice and suggestions. Photos are always useful for that too.

I'm pleased to see Raonich in the final T'bird. Roger's not match fit etc but the big lad took his chances well. I think he's a great future prospect for big things.

I'm quite enjoying being in bed - now that I have one!  

Someone stealing my details from the forum

Posted: 09/07/2016 at 08:32

I didn't send you  a PM Mike, and I rarely look at my messages unless I'm expecting oneor need to send one.

And Dove's right. Scammers. Nobody has to give the forum those kinds of details - credit card info etc.

Garden Pictures 2016

Lovely pix Julie - you've put a lot of work into your garden. Really paying off  

Wet here too flumpy. It's been so cold here that the grass hasn't grown too much since last weekend though. Every cloud, as they say...literally!  

Good to see your photos here Jacqueline. It's a great thread for seeing loads of different ideas and styles isn't it?
