Morning Clari 

The birds are enjoying the mealworms I've been putting out, but I do the same as you - under a basket so the magpies don't hoover up the whole lot. The little birds are all quite used to using it. 

Would like more tea KEF but won't have time to drink it before I go....well maybe if I hurry...not sure I can hurry to do anything today though  

Where are YOU?

I'm about ten miles south of Glasgow - been in this house about a year having moved many times in the last few years.

Morning all. Cloudy here but not much rain forecast so glad I haven't done my weed n feed yet Dove!

Got some more trellis painted yesterday afternoon and evening, in between assisting daughter in making the roast dinner. She did well though. 

Off for a look round as I wasn't on last night. Have a good day everyone.

I'm off outside to sort out some edging and then go for supplies.

Will catch up with you all later 

Do I talk too much.?

Mike - you've not been here long, but I think I can safely say that the majority of people who post regularly enjoy your comments and - more importantly perhaps - your company. 

As Verdun said to me once - it's not just a gardening forum. 

You keep on doing what you do. If anyone doesn't want to read it - that's their choice. I'm quite sure lots of people don't read the rubbish I often write! Of course, they don't know what they're missing - my jokes are always superior to Verdun's...

I could do my legs with those blackest...

Back home - busy morning at work and going to get trellis and compost soon. We can't all lie about all day having holidays you know...

Blackest - Verd's right. Give us a pic and we can suggest a few things perhaps. If the border's  long enough you could pick three nice shrubs of varying height and foliage shape grouped together  to do a repeat planting right along it. That would give you unity and you could have other perennials etc in between. If it's smaller, just pick one. 

MrsG - glad the paniculata thing was helpful - and no, I don't think you're getting many scented flowers from those seedlings...

Morning all. Cloudy here but supposed to clear and be sunny again...

We're almost needing rain too but it's nice to have more than two sunny days in a row 

Off to work shortly will catch up later.

Have a good day everyone

Evening all. Another good day outside and lots done. Plants divided and repotted, and my big pots washed and the Hebes planted in them. Managed to break a large terracotta pot which I've had for about twenty years - it had  a lot of cracks which I patched up but the whole thing collapsed when I transferred my herbs into it . Think I had my money's worth - it cost a fiver!

Work for me tomorrow so off to have a quick  look round the forum to see what you've all been up to, and then put my weary old feet up.
