Evening all,

Yesterday I got another pallet apart, spotted a few gold finches in the garden nice to see them back and a bird collecting nesting material

Today we managed to get painting up the station done as the weather has dried the sleepers nicely, that is most of the summer damson paint done - need to get the zingy lime and smooth pebble paint yet will take photos and post some when.

Later in garden took apart a few planks of wood off another pallet

Hovered mums car, to make it cleaner - bits of dirt from going to GC before

Bet Woody is so busy in the garden sorting out his new project of the roundabout

Edd how is your new project going?

No seed sowing done yet?

Hello Zoomer44

Are you going to the allotment, have you managed to do any more?

Interesting to know how your allotment is going so far

any photos

Thanks for the picture now I understand what you mean.  How did you put the back on the bench?  Super long screws?  

Thanks Zoomer44

Pallet no.2 now done.  Actually this one was much tougher to do and the wood split in a few places, hard to get the nails out as they were rusted in.  Needed a lot more effort.

Busy Bee 2 - welcome to the forum. Lots of ideas here.

Hello all, been doing a couple of hours at the station today clearing historic litter from under shrubs and cutting them back a bit.   Had look at garden, loads of things in flower now. 

After lunch bit of pallet bashing.  Day started grey and foggy but sun came out around lunch time.  Once sun went down it got chilly very quickly.
