Driveway ideas

Posted: 18/04/2014 at 10:26

Mark - sorry if I sound thick, but do you need all the driveway? If not, how about removing a good bit of it and replacing with something nicer and more useful. You could extend your grass across and have a nice border or trees for instance, especially as you seem to have a nice outlook there which you could 'borrow'.

You'd be there for ever more painting it chick. It took me about 2 hours to paint each

6 x 2 piece on the fence. It's the same kind with the smaller holes. 

Hubby can always hang his coat on the 'little man'

Chick - it's really superb. Is that Verdun on the pergola to keep interlopers out?  Hedge will be lovely in a year or two and it'll really set it all off.

Now you just need to get him making them more quickly and he can have a nice little cottage industry to keep him busy in his man shed! 

I won't offer to come and paint all the trellis...

David - that's what you get for trying to photograph dandelions...

I'd agree. The pic distorts when I enlarge - but that's how mare's tail looks when it first emerges.

Can I borrow your hubby chick? Could do with an extra pair of hands for the heavy stuff. Veg garden sounds great - has he done some of his lovely metal work?

Lovely pix everyone. It's an osteospermum Steve. A rather leggy one! You could trim it back and use the bits as cuttings for more plants though

Morning all. Lovely day here and I don't have work so - result! Makes a change for it to be nice when I'm not at work , but so many things to do I'll no doubt take ages deciding what to do first. 

MrsG- how long for the cutting to be 8 feet? About another 7 and a half feet...

I'll get me coat...oh -  I don't need one...

Only one quiche left now - we've eaten a whole one!  I had to look sternly at OH or the other one would've disappeared too - he seems to think that I cook things to be eaten 

What are they like. As if...

We've just had roast beef with the trimmings - none of daughter's Yorkshires left - sorry.

Yes - rain for you lot on Sunday - and sun for us - yippee! Not that I'm rubbing it in or anything 

'Leucanthemum' MrsG. Or  'thae big daisies' as they're known here

Just in and catching up. You're so right Verd- life can be very random and hard to understand sometimes. My sympathies to you Dove.  'Peacefully' is the word to remember when the going gets tough, as it undoubtedly will. Plenty of hugs for you whenever you need them x
