Leaving my garden

Know just how you feel Hollie. Good luck with your new projects - you can make lots of plans over the winter for the new plot though, and keep us updated with pix 

Serious! Really

You're up early for a 19 year old then!

Lily- I liked Michael Landon from LH on the P when he was in Bonanza.

Oh yes- always acknowledge Mr Magpie lily...but just because he's a friendly bird - no other reason...

Don't know the passing on the stairs one though. You'll have to enlighten me

Lovely pix everyone. Really enjoying these landscapes. I have loads on a disc from old computer so I'll have to have a look for them 

Nikki - I had a photo of an inversion but it's on that disc. Ben Lui from the top of Bheinn Dorain - the cloud at the top just cleared as we got there. Sheer chance and really beautiful.

Found this - can't remember where it is though  Point and shoot from half way up somewhere!

Forgot to do white rabbits - but hey - I'm not superstitious anyway. I keep my rabbit's foot and  lucky white heather tucked safely away. And I moved the ladder so I don't have to walk under it when I go to the car.

Woody - you have to go and see someone about your 'weather/season' denial...

It's a big job Lyn- hope you've been eating your porridge and spinach! 

Very satisfying when you get it all completed though. Did you have a chipper for the conifers? It would have been some good recycling! We did that with a huge fir tree at last house which was in a seriously bad place.

I'm seriously considering ripping out the rhododendron at the front door which was here when I moved in. I'd like some gold/yellow planting at the front and it just doesn't fit. It's very mature though and the new growth is coppery so I'm not sure. Got enough to do anyway!

Grockle- that's a good word. What does it mean - nosy parkers?

What age are you Corny? We're all very young here really 

Only 27 myself...or am I 28 now since I've just had a birthday ..

I used to cry at Lassie...


compost use

Diane - it's mental isn't it!

James - peat is reckoned to be the best growing medium, but because of the issues surrounding it's use,  the peat free stuff is now the most widely used. We had a thread on here earlier this year though, and many people had issues with the quality of most of the peat free stuff available.

Late this morning. That's what I get for staying awake till daughter was in from her party 

I'll no doubt fall asleep at about 8 tonight!

Supposed to be a decent day here so might get something done outside. Yesterday was horrendous in the afternoon. 

will try and catch up on all the chat on here now
