Hello all

Been half day of volunteering at Sholing valley study centre today - litter picking around Millers pond then got to have a nice lunch cake and rolls

Later on when home sorted out moving large boulders in the front garden and re arranging the size of the border, planted out a few plants which is good, helps get the plants that need planting down - before next weekend when it is off the Stansted garden show    http://www.thegardenshowonline.com/gardenshow_stansted/   when I will be buying more plants as still need more plants for areas in the garden and inspiration too and lots of other bits 

Has been a very warm day had the sun cream on today

now the peeps that collect slugs what do you do with them?  is it bag them and bin them? 

Need some more plant ID's please

That's ok Chicky good bit of extra Chelsea to watch makes it like two weeks long, me recording it too

I went into garden with lobbers and cut back some of next doors hedge which was over my bee and butterfly border and hiding my foxgloves and teasel and stopping the rain getting there

I also cut hedge of a different area in the garden and now garden waste bin full just have to wait till next week for it to be emptied

I had a look at my broad beans in the raised bed from Woody flowering like made so good amazing - then I looked down to the soil and a large round hole was there - think ratty using the raised bed to help get under fence to next door

There is a cute ratty in our garage think she has little ratty's now they made a nest in there some where and found all the stored bird food now, I feed them now and food stored elsewhere

my sweet peas have moved to the next gh hardening off as door stays open

Evening all, well wind tornado yesterday for the fayre, quite a few of the gazebos were taking off and trying to cross the field - getting damaged in the process.  It was all hands to the pump each time a gazebo tried taking off. 

Quite a few people packed up early and we left early as it was impossible to stay any longer in the wind, there were not many members of the public there when we left although the raffle had not been called.

Good news was that I sold some seeds - flower seeds and runner/French bean seeds.  The money will go towards the upkeep of the Station flowerbed.

Of course, as they had a plant stall, I had to get a few.  More plants in pots, just like Verdun, waiting to be planted out. 

Then today, still a bit windy, I sorted out replanting the raspberry canes, giving them new compost.  Hard work separating them and removing the grass that had grown around them.  Snap, Chicky.
