Here is a picture of my pallets and I have 3 more now

Think it will be a bench a cold frame and maybe a garden table for seed sowing.

Lets just see if my DIY skills are up to making them all

Hello all, sorry but I have been away and whilst there bought my first iPhone which syncs with this mac on everything except signing in here!! Any ideas any one? I can read all your posts on the phone but can't respond without signing in. When I do so it rejects me because I already exist, if you get my drift.

Some random thoughts:-

Lemon drizzle cake in my village shop should be relabelled "Lemon Drenched" It's the best I have ever tasted, and I am a fully paid up expert.

Gg, just how much energy do you have and can I have some please? Tulip noses showing. 


Hello Woody the only thing I can think of is logging out of one to get into the other,

Have to get some cake from your village shop like lemon drizzle but Victoria sponge cake my favourite do they do that?

Your tulips noses showing on goodie - I so want to come visit your garden when they are in flower if I am allowed to.

For energy try Berocca tablets I do gives me a boost some days when I need it as well as cake

Hello all, here is how the pond looks now

Here is the photo of our pond only put in last week and got lots of free soil to go around edge of pond as there was a big hole from re doing where our pond was before used a pre formed pond liner to help with shape

long way to go yet with plants and edging and twigs for bugs

Hello all

Filled half a garden waste bin

Ended up going to dig up some more dirt for free from a garden in Bitterne, not too far away with mum and dad filled the boot with bags worth of dirt then emptied it out in our garden then back for more 1 more boot load, then as the soil is very clay-e broke it up a bit and put around the pond, so knackering back sore what a sunny day today and fed the birds earlier too

some one near by was having a bonfire again lucky wind blowing it the other way
