Hi Verdun, sorry I,ve just been catching up on this thread, it was the Ying Tong song!
We named our siamese cat after it!!
Anyone remember the Shadocks, it was a bizarre French cartoon of creatures on other planets??!!!
Hi Clarington, re bubblewrap. I would insulate all the panes if you are in a cool area. It might also be a good investment to get a parafin heater or electric for really bad weather.
Hey Verdun, do you remember the Goon shows?
I'm reading The Lollipop Shoes, by Joanne Harris of "Chocolat" fame. No gardening tips sadly, its set in central Paris. Lots of descriptions of chocolate though... mmmmmm......yum
The top pic is a view from The Chase Pub, where we had our lunch.
Here are my 2 dogs on top of the Malverns (their reward for staying in the car whilst we went round the garden)
We went to Picton for my hubbys birthday treat on 10th October. It was gorgeous. Love this part of the country, the views from the malverns overlooking Wales is spectacular.
Far out man!!!!!
Diddydoit, I would like some yellow echinaceas and some of your Slavias Uliginosa if you have any spare. Hope you got the pineapple lilys this morning!
Hi Terrier, we have just done the same sort of thing, ie scraped off lawn to make a new larger bed , its very heavy compact clay. broke my back digging with a fork and smashing the large lumps with a spade. Piled lots of well rotted horse dung and leaf mulch on top to let it do its thing. Its is now quite a good consistancy. the worms do a lot of the work! Good luck
A walk round Batsford Arboretum on a sunny day with the dogs, followed by a pub lunch, sitting next to a big log fire in a pretty Cotswold village. That makes Autumn ok by me!
