Bjay, that's the problem I always have with cakes, the cooking time is miles out.

GG, I have similar issues with OH. His main duty is to chop down brambles and ivy  Only the other day he was doing just that and decided to remove an unsightly metal frame while he was at it - it's a support for some plants that flop about so I was not a happy bear. Easily sorted but it was not his department!!!

Morning folks.

Sun and cloud here but the frost is going quickly. Not sure which of the 10 gazillion gardening jobs I shall do today.

Have fun, whatever you're at!

Morning all. I have just read some of the Amazon link. Can barely type for tears pouring down - not sympathy, I'm afraid chaps    . Wonderful start to the day!

Thank you kind people for your suggestions. I think I'm going to end up with quite a lot of herby/ scenty things I think. Pam, I have a sarcococca in a pot and was thinking about using it there. In fact I want them all!!! I love the idea of evening smellies.

I have had a few rows of paving laid in front of the conservatory and now have an empty section between it and the old path across to the shed. I am wondering what would be good to plant there. I will probably have a couple of stepping stones in line with the conservatory door and I need a bit of room to walk round the pond which is just off the left of the photo. Nothing too high but I don't want grass because the chickens will scratch it up. It's sunny during the mornings in summer other wise shade / partial shade, well-drained, slightly alkaline.

Thanks in advance for suggestions. Flo x

Thanks Chicky you're a brick-y

Fish pie was v. nice Bunny, though I say so myself. Wine was too though I can't claim to have made that with  my own fair mitts!
