Shabby Chic Anyone?

Posted: 18/09/2014 at 12:46

Hey Yvie - we could form a New England look now! 

I'd love a formal Italianate garden but with this space it would be difficult to achieve. I have to think of possible resale - it would be for a family probably - so my dream of 'a parterre or two, a vista and view' will have to wait 

That rhymed 

BM - sometimes seeing your garden in a pic gives you a totally different viewpoint of things. It's going to be lovely - plenty to look at. You won't even notice that shed in a year's time

Morning all. Off to work in a moment and going to vote on my way. Feeling very sad and worried about it.

Dull and  damp here - autumnal. Woody's bed will be very nice when it's all complete so looking forward to pix. The stumps looked lovely. 

Hope everyone has a good day, whatever they're doing.

I'll catch up later

Whatever type of structure you put up, make sure it's concreted in and is sturdy. Once you  attach climbers to anything there's a lot of weight. Anything flimsy or just stuck in the ground will fall down in the first strong gust of wind, and could cause big problems.

I can think of a word...begins with s, ends in te. Five letters..

Bit at a time DD... but I know the problem only too well when there's a lot to do and only so many hours in the day. 

Had a busy day again but got a little bit done outside after work. Dinner has been made and eaten and now having a cuppa and a catch up. 

Pheasants attack the plums

It could be worse - it could be peasants attacking your plums...

Belfast sinks and their true value?

O Lady has one sweet pea, and Woody has a few - not sure what thread the pix are on though. 

It's not my birthday.

Pheasants attack the plums

Posted: 17/09/2014 at 16:13

I'm unsure why the thought is that a gamekeeper has introduced the pheasants. We had a load of them at our last house. They bred every year at the house across from us - our only near neighbour. He fed them, and they visited us regularly for food too - we could hand feed them. They sometimes got run over but that's life and nature I'm afraid.

A barrier - canes/timber with wire netting or similar - round the tree will help keep them away. Put some other food out for them in a different part of the garden as well so that they get used to that instead of raiding your tree. As they get bigger, which is quite quickly, they'll fly less and stick to the ground more. They're basically fancy chickens, so they need a good run to get up in the air
