Only if you stop stealing strawberries you naughty monkey..

And here's my litle visitor...need Dove to advise me on food for him/her! Wonder if I've disturbed his little world round the shed with all the 'fencing activity'.


Summer has arrived

Fidget- depends what size your glass is...

It is a whopper though!

G. Jekyll was almost blind when she designed a lot of her gardens and every one had a complete planting plan - she painted with plants. Of course, she had Ned Lutyens to design all those wonderful architectural structures - one of the all time greats- so that makes it easier!

Came home from daughter's birthday dinner and saw this little visitor when I looked out kitchen window....



Good Evening FORKERS

Evening. I came on here to tell everyone how excited I was about seeing a hedgehog ten minutes ago snuffling around the pots below the feeder and how he let me come very close to him and take photos.... but I find myself reading these posts from earlier this afternoon. I lost my Mum for years to depression until she got help. I suffer from it too and like punkdoc and Tina and Verd, BL and Kef, the garden is my salvation, which is why it's been hard to deal with the recent issues I've had since moving to this house. The garden means so much to me and it's vital that I can use it and feel happy in it.

We're a good little family here and we can support each other - whatever problems we might have. Times like those are when the internet can do some good.

Love to you all.x

Thanks Andy - I was extremely young when I had her of course...Cash and a ticket for Russell Howard in March. Out for tea later and a cake so  she's happy enough! Got her an extra present for helping me, and will let her off 'fencing duty' today. I'm all heart 

Your bed looks great- what a difference a bit of hard work makes to an area. What's the little tree you've put in?

Hope you're better soon Gilly and fidget. Accidents come in threes fidget- I wouldn't go outside for the next few months if I was you!

Dried up now so off outside.

Burrow of Bees!!!

Sounds more like something else digging there and the bees are just looking to move in. When I removed shrubs from my Dad's garden for him there was a colony of bees nesting underneath one.Nice and dry and warm for them. Perhaps your bees are just making use of a ready made, convenient space!

Someone will know Shoei

Morning all.

KEF I can lend you a bin bag- nice and waterproof- that's what I'd need here - it's precipitating down. 

Bye Dove- have a good day. Pavlova sounds good to me- easy to make but looks exotic...a bit of strawberry 'coulis' to pour over is always good too. Or as we call it here- sauce.  Maybe they're getting the spam filters adjusted to deal with them now.

Daisy - hopefully your compost will be good. I'm going to get some tomato growbags to use- someone here recommended them as the quality's better and they're often cheaper.

Bev- it's nearly Friday!

Barbies  no prob Dove - can send daughter - she's getting quite good with the power drill  Hope you had a better day today at work.

Daughter 'wings' not too small KEF- she's 19...
