Which Lutyens bench to buy??

Posted: 07/02/2014 at 13:11

Any Lutyens bench will be a delight rubber. A timeless classic.

What a talented, clever man Ned Lutyens was.

Clari - looking forward to the pix 

I miss my 4x4. Sis and BIL have just bought a new one. Will start saving again once my building work's done. Which one are you getting Clari?

Dove - is it a couple of telephone masts that are attached to the shoulders of the jacket?

Been busy cleaning floors and second lot of washing will soon be done, so then I can go out. No doubt it will cloud over and rain when I do!

I thought you were suggesting I have a cold shower to calm  myself down David !

If it's not a huge area Fran, or if you have enough help, could you lift the plants when the weather's suitable and keep them in a temporary  'holding' area? You can then attack the ground elder and any other weeds more easily, tidy up and nourish the border, and then divide and sort your plants before putting  them back.

Matty, my deepest sympathies. Know what you're going through.

We're here for support when you need it. Think you probably know that already.

If anyone's got the radio on - tune into Radio 2 and Jeremy Vine's show. Guess what they're talking about? Perhaps their ears were burning after my earlier rant....

I can send you some crampons and an ice axe Dove

Very good David!

Spring's definitely on the way....

Emerging Pasque flowers:

 and Iceplants :

 and dwarf Iris (I know it says crocus but I was having a senior moment!) :

 and Clematis :

 and some berries on the Gaultheria procumbens ( think you can get ointment for that...) :

 Not long to go now!
