HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 20/01/2014 at 17:56

Hello all, after a lot of HW took ages - went into the nice sunny garden to put up my new bird feeders ready for the big bird count on the weekend - I have registered for it wonder how many birds I will count this year.   

What a busy weekend coming up with the potato show http://www.potatoday.org/  bird count and helping volunteering 

On the TV tonight on channel 2 at 6.30 the great British railway journeys is going to be in Southampton on the line that goes past Sholing where I volunteer, as he is going to Netley you may not see the station garden or maybe 2 seconds as he is so busy in the show so we are recording it to take another look just in case it is in the show. 

Been also moving some old logs cut down around the pond area to edge it and played around with a few tree stumps for a small area

It was only the big 12kg bag of daffs for a fiver, but couldn't resist as they were down from £19.99!  

Woody - wow - a flower already.

Forgot to say I got a doughnut at the GC.  One for the birds that is,  Fat balls to go in it as well.

Hello all

Put my nice changing solar colour lights out today make the garden brighter, I spotted lots of tulips starting to pop up and other bulbs

We have clematis armandii up the station but not liking it that much may be the wind, what sort of conditions do they need?

Stacey I like the white one

Think I am going to Romsey hillier GC tomorrow to look around

Anyone know what this is?

I had a thought it looks similar to old tea strainers but still not sure, I looked up on Google

I cleaned it up last night it looks more of a silver colour and like mark bottom right on the back of 11

Here is another picture of how it looks now
