Hello all- the sun is shining - again! Lesley did you organise that for coming home?   We're to get more of it tomorrow - it's just unbelievable! 

Can you detect the sarcasm there? 

Sorry about your foot though  

Glad cream buns are doing a good job - I've always believed a bit of carefully chosen cake can cure anything 

Frit - does that make you a granny? 

doc- I loved the headline in one of the Aussie papers today - 'Pomicide'  ....

Hi Pete - Hosta's right. If it's what you really want - go for it. 

I think you're currently living in the driest part of the British Isles. Essex constantly gets the lowest rainfall. If you lived where I am you'd be praying for sunny days like today! They've been few and far between this year  

Never happy are we? 

Stone the crows!

Aaah- I was thinking you were a bit further north Lily.  I think Dumfries has a good population these days.  

looking for inspiration

Hebes would make a nice edging plant. There's a few which don't get too big and stay in a smallish mound so not too much clipping and trimming if you're short of time. If you want something more floral and less formal, I'd agree with thyme. It makes an excellent edging plant and won't encroach too much on the path for ease of access to your veg beds.

LP - fantastic that you've seen a red squirrel - did you mean in your area? I'm sure that's very unusual.

At our last property, the only neighbour (across the road) chucked bread out every day which attracted endless amounts of crows, magpies and seagulls. He never realised how daft that was, and the 'rookery' in the trees down the hill was hellish.  

They were useful at clearing up the squirrel and fox roadkill though...

Hosta - nothing will taste as good as those two bottles will...enjoy! 

Cute calf Frit 

The sun is still shining - perhaps we'll have an Indian summer after all...without having to go to India to get it 

...and perhaps it'll help my walking boots dry out enough to use at the weekend after last week's outing!  

Good luck Panda

Perhaps we should also stop culling the endless deer population up here as well. Let them starve to death instead as they no longer have any natural predators........

Management of the countryside is essential. 

We take measures to control what poses a problem in our own little plots - and rightly so. Our gardens are complete artifice and artificially managed - whatever we might care to believe.

Hosta - you've just shown the difference between a mature, civilised relationship (yours with ex wife and your children) and the other end of the scale - your OH's family. No need to say any more than that. 

Congratulations on your anniversary - and may you have a lifetime more xxx  

There's a round yellow thing in the sky....any ideas anyone?
