Hello all

had finished painting my potting table and 10 mins later pissing it down - I am soaked trying to cover it with a sheet of plastic and pegging it trying to keep it there as bit windy as well, want the paint to dry that was the last coat needed - would of done it later Monday but there was a large black smoked bonfire so it stunk in the back garden to be out there

so indoors for a bit until it stops or gets lighter me cold and wet think hairdryer needed to dry and warm me up

Evening all

Yesterday at the station we cleared an area put up a compost bin - dam lots of nettles stung me painful still sore a bit today, lots of weeding done found so many goodies - little plants hiding under weeds and grasses - grasses self sown in the flower bed, little seedlings honesty and foxgloves

It looks so much neater now still lots to weed as a long flower bed

been sorting out a few bits in garden today - playing shifty in the gh with seedlings 

Punkdoc try - slug gone stuff helps protect plants from the snails and slugs

Think it is repeated Thursday at 11pm on BBC 4 that is when I record it as I have recorded the allotment challenge and I have that on a different disk

Had a bit more of a go at the pallet potting table in evening still bits to go yet,

I sowed my lettuce in trays yesterday then I will plant out when ready - I guess if you thin out your lettuce carefully you can keep the roots and plant in another area  

Night all sleepy time

Here is some pics for you

This on back of Woodgreen village hall like the garden great den area



These pictures are from Woodgreen wonderboy's garden

Think some of these pictures show how his garden is doing



These pots look amazing love the colours



This is the sheep getting rounded up in the field behind his garden



Great log pile area for wildlife and for bugs



So nice and soft coloured tulips



So glad I made it at the right time to view the tulips amazing show of flowers



Which one is this one, I so like it



Here is a close up



You are still there Fairygirl in the back - just think you got a bit giddy



The bee enjoying the pollen

On way home saw a horse on edge of road walking along



 and then a cute donkey



Here is the plants that I brought - did not realise that I got so many as dad kept putting them in the boot


Chicky the ragged robin is going to the station and maybe something else
