You'll be relieved when it's all over Tina. Mine don't cause too many problems when they're around and they can fend for themselves but it's quite a nice feeling when they go to their Dad's anyway. My nephew and wife have twins who were two a few months ago. Think she's finding it hard work especially when nephew decides to go away for a couple of days! 

Matty if you think yours is untidy you should see mine just now!  

Work in progress though.Once the shed's moved and I can start clearing and sorting the back garden it'll improve... I hope 

What's the star in your garden right now

Love the tree fern Deano 

Picked some sweet peas this morning and they are definitely my little stars just now.


 When I was picking them a little wasp landed on my arm holding an ant. Hope he enjoyed his breakfast!

Morning all. Been a much better summer here too - but after the last two or three anything would be an improvement!

Autumnal here but that's normal for this part of the world. Dry and bright. Rowans are groaning under the weight of their berries and leaves turning on ornamental cherry trees.

Schools are back today. Youngest daughter thrilled....

Will get some painting done and cut down last bit of dead tree. A few more plants to move from shed area and maybe get more manure and soil down round boundary. Trip to nursery later perhaps too.

Good luck with the fish ltg!

Have a good day everyone.

It sounds a bit like a hogweed. Any chance it could be that gill?

Good luck with them nanny!  Italophile is a real expert with toms and gives us all lots of great advice and help - I've learnt loads already and had a lovely crop of toms this year and many more still to come

It's the hardest thing to achieve when you garden!

Morning GG- are you more of a Midsomer Murders than a Val McDermid type then! 

My youngest can watch 5 minutes of MM and tell you what's going to happen and whodunnit - most amusing! 5 minutes after I've watched it I couldn't tell you anything about it - instantly forgettable but enjoyable all the same! 

Just wear you lightest clothes today at FC and lean more on one foot than the other...

Don't rotivate! I personally wouldn't use carpet but plastic is readily available if you don't want to use weedkiller. Carpet often contains lots of chemicals which apparently leach into the soil but if you're not planting edibles I dare say it's fine.

Morning all. Yes chilly here as Andy says but to clear later and warm up. Feels nice to say that again- I mean 'as Andy says' not the warming up bit 

CHick- I read The Distant Hours by Kate Morton- that's a cracking good read! Apples forming well on the little Bramleys I bought- hope the squirrels don't find them before I get a pie out of them 

MrsG- what are the two of you watching!?

Good Evening FORKERS
