addict- sorry for taking so long to reply. Unfortunately the stump is right where the new lawn will be but i'll keep chopping away at the top of it till it's low enough to be covered with soil etc for the grass.  Failing that the lawn can be shorter in lengtgh, but I'd still have the same prob as it would be part of the path instead!

Great pix chick! It's really helpful looking at photos because we can see how  a space grows and matures - sometimes hard to see that when we look at it every day. Amazing how big a chnage can happen in a year. 

Gardengirl- that first pic would be lovely enlarged and framed and hung on the wall!

Morning all. Fingers crossed Tina for a safe delivery  

Bright here just now but rain coming later so will try and get something done this morning.

My new area is going to be a predominantly white too as it will be shadier. Got loads of muck to spread on the bits that won't get planted till spring - ideal to do today after yesterdays rain.

Will go and check out the pix chick!

Have a good day all

I find giant snails here in amongst crocosmia Margaret. It was one of the few plants that the rabbits didn't eat at my last house and we had loads of frogs and toads there so no slugs!

Great site Bob! When she was little, oldest daughter used to love holding the little green shield bugs we get here . Now I know why it took her so long to walk home from school.

nut- I'm definitely getting brave. A couple of night ago I went out when it was dark to lock shed etc and there was a large-ish brown/orange moth stuck inside the tomato house. I opened the door  and gently caught it and steered it outside! Didn't cry or anything!

Morning all. Not on here last night as I was too tired. Outside till about 7pm and got lots done- it's slow, tiring stuff but I'm getting there.

Rain here and to be damp all day and wet tomorrow so it'll help get the new plants established. 

fidget - Verdun will tell you he trains the dog but.....

chick- pix please!!

BL- hope the eyes are better today. Very painful and frustrating too.

Normal? Normal??? I'm completely normal - my analyst has been telling me that I am for years....

 Hover- good to see you back.

If I'd had that kind of reception on joining - I would never have come back and I would have missed all the lovely, kind, helpful people on here - many of whom are like a little  family. I hope you continue to ask questions - and continue to enjoy gardening. It's what most of us here do with a few breaks for chat and cake!  

I've always said to my children- it's the intelligent people who ask questions-  after all, it's how to find out the answers. Good luck with your tree.
