Dove, that sounds lovely

I'm so so bored stiff

Suffering here too. My garden looks just awful! Haven't been able to get up most of the leaves from the fall in Autumn as the grass on the property is in really bad condition and any raking of it in the wet results in great big ugly bald patches. Right now it looks as though someone can't be bothered! Beautiful edged and barked area in the front garden also covered in icky wet rotting leaves and certainly not beautiful any more. Can't finish tidying the back or the border as its just rain, rain, rain and when it feels like it a little heavier rain. Factor in the continual 50 - 70 mph plus wind and....... no gardening activity at all! Roll on spring!  And after all of that, a Happy New Year to all! x

Just visited your blog James. Well done.

Any hope for a diseased Sorbus (Autumn Spire)?

Sorry I can't help AJ but I'm responding to bump this back up the list, hopefully someone else that can help will see it.

David K thank you so much. Some useful information there. I think perhaps to start the point and shoot option would be the most practical so I'll look into the Canon Powershot. Thanks again.

Hi all,

Its the first time I've seen this thread and its fantastic, what stunning pictures. Thank you all so much I've really enjoyed it. No pics to add from me but some advice would be appreciated if you don't mind. OH wants a camera for Christmas but I've no idea which would be best? He wants if for taking pics of garden and inanimate objects that don't move but also wants to be able to take pics of fast moving things such as the birds in the garden so I'm guessing something that allows high speed pics and it would also need to have a pretty good zoom and something similar to auto focus (he cant keep a camera still!). Any advice or recommendations greatly appreciated. Then I might be able to upload some of the results here. Heather x

I wouldn't know what to suggest for you Mary but good luck with that. Terribly sad reason for the garden but what a lovely thing to do. I'm sure it'll be a fantastic place to go to and see and reflect whatever you plant there x

what's still flowering in your garden?

Posted: 13/11/2013 at 13:34

I've still got Geraniums flowering at the moment. Suspect it won't be for much longer though. Getting very very cold now. We had our first frost of the year this morning and the forecast for the next week is colder and colder with overnight temps dropping into minus figures by mid next week. Brrr. Not looking forward to it. Nor to the lack of any flowers. I really need to get my border sorted with some flowering plants for next autumn and winter.

I've had a reminder for this for weeks. Can't wait. I love these sort of programms, find them totally addictive and to be honest far more informative than any number of hours spent poring over books or god forbid the internet! Hope you all enjoy it.
