MOB rants

small rant coming forth,I was walking the dogs through a wooded valley with a stream running along side leading to an open area of open grass leading to the river.This is a place of wild life and beauty spoilt by dirty humans dumping litter,beds,chairs,litter of all sorts,plastics,bikes etc,detritus of humans worse than anything an animal could do.This was a place some 30 years ago was were you could walk with out seeing litter every inch of the way.The people who live here dump things over their fences (including plastic windows)yet they have a lovely out look that they and others just don't care about grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Small tree for front garden

Posted: 19/03/2013 at 20:02

I am glad you are going to turf your front garden ,so many gardens are dull with gravel or brick.I have seen here in a small front garden a grass lawn with a circle bed with a variegated holly with berries and small flower borders surrounding .It looks lovely and refreshing,the holly is cut in a ball shape.
