That'll be me GG 

Dry just now but we might be getting rain again later...typical!

Have been painting a large terracotta pot for a phormium to go in. Looking quite good and may do a few more. At least I won't need to use the pickaxe to put it in like I did the other day with the clematis- my back still hasn't recovered 

Hope you all have a good day. GG take care when you're lifting your grass...of course you're only 27 so it shouldn't be a problem 

Flaming Weeds!

Yes why is it that rabbits eat everything...but weeds!

Thought about getting one in the past but didn't know whether they'd be as good as I expected.

Do you have the red lily in Briton/Scotland?

They made the trip to Scotland a few years back unfortunately.

Hi Goondog- I've had decking before and just used one of the clear preservatives rather than a colour. I've noticed that all these coloured finishes, including the ones for fences, seem to peel off as they are water based and  form a 'skin'. The oils would be a much better choice than these too.

Morning all. Think I need one of those hoes Dove-in a large size for children....

I can just picture your hubby running along behind...

Glad you had a good hol GG. Send some of those limes and purples up to me- it's a great combo.

My Mum used to make clootie dumpling and yes it was a common thing for breakfast-we didn't have croissants in Scotland then! Not my thing although I love fruit cake and Christmas pud. I think that's what my (English) Dad liked about Scotland -the baking!

Dull here but supposed to brighten up. Got washing out anyway. Bought some stuff for my fence yesterdayat B&Q - and a nice little bargain of 3 tomato plants for 20p ! They are on daughter's window getting a little tlc 

Believe it or not - north west Highlands are getting the best weather in Britain today...don't blink you'll miss it..

Well done to your wife but I understand why she'e a bit disappointed- showing of any kind is like that. Glad you all got plenty of prizes!

Red Bugs on my fritillaria imperialis

Kill them- kill them all.......

Seriously- they are a real pest, but when you nab them watch out as they can drop down to the ground on their backs and are hard to spot as their underbits are black.

Lovely pix tho 

wildlife pond, with a cat...

Posted: 18/05/2013 at 12:38

I had cats and a pond and it really wasn't a problem dj. The benefits definitely outweigh the negs so get that pond in and enjoy! 

Gerry- take the plunge...was that intentional?
