Crossed that many moons ago James when there on holiday- tide was coming in and I wasn't feeling too brave!

I'm relieved that this is the pic you found to post -was getting worried when you said you'd look on your office pc for images....

John- nice to see you back! Did you watch the programme recently about Bodnant? I remember sitting on that lily pond edge when I was little. Parents took us to Wales on holiday one year. I'd totoally forgotten it till I did a design course and there was a pic of the pond. It was very weird as I remembered it quite clearly.

Lovely photo. 

This is Tolmount (right in the middle) taken from Glen Callater. The 'back' of the hills at Lochnagar are over to the left of this bit. It was dazzling because of the ice. It was February 2009 if I remember correctly. We came back another day to do those!

Enjoying this thread David. Nice to see what everyone gets up to apart from in their garden! 

Will have a trawl through some of mine later on.

Hi Clarington. I'd say just get them done now. You'll have enough to do when you move and the weather could be really horrible by then and the last thing you'll feel like doing is digging up plants. I know from experience! 

hydrangea.when can i move it?

Yes - I'd agree, try and get as good a root ball as possible

Morning all. Work for me too. Nice just now but rain coming later 

Just an excuse to faff around on here then...

Got quite a bit done outside yesterday afternoon but it was chilly. The pile of bulbs is now a good bit smaller!

Have a great day all.

Is that your other half fidget?  

Nice pix Nikki.  Do you do quite a bit of hillwalking?

This is Stobh Dearg- the start of the  Buchaille Etive Mor ridge walk at Glencoe:

Ah but is he house trained Matty? That's the worst bit...

Only girlees in this house now, and if they want to bring boyfriends back they can go and live in the shed 

Panda what a shame. A few tree stakes or something to straighten it out and you'll be fine.

I'd offer to come with my saw and drill but they're both on strike just now from over use!

christmas soon

Cut another bit off the bottom as well and stand it outside in water until you're ready to bring it in.

I have those kinds of lists too 

chicky- how is the trellis doing? I assume no one's had any more windy weather overnight?

Hello all. Dry and clear here after all the rain. Even got washing ready to go out.

Might even get some more of those bulbs in after work or else there will be a nice display in the shed in spring rather than the garden 

Have a good day everyone
