Leaving my garden

Posted: 08/11/2013 at 12:46

Your right Lyn, but at the moment I think I'm looking forward to the silence, if that makes sense. I lived in the country as I child so not to easily spooked by strange noises or the dark.

There's a busy road close to me at the moment, and it will be absolute bliss not to hear the traffic

Hi Dove, the property is set in a 40 acre farm, so the geese are farmyard ones. From the view of one of the bedrooms, I can see goats!!

The sheep are black ones, no idea what sort! They are in a field a few hundred yards next to the property. I haven't really seen the brook yet, but I can hear it. There's a couple of ponds around so hopeful there will be frogs and toads, would love to see a hedgehog up there as well. Mind you I guess they are starting to hibernate now.

It's not far from where I am now, the main difference is that it is up! Your right I'm really looking forward to seeing the stars

Camera phone is on charge, so will try and take a few pictures and post them later today.

Hi Lyn, looking forward to the country noises. Won't be putting anything in the loft!! There is a skylight, the last tenant said to keep it shut as he has known the bats to come in the bedroom, as much as I love them, don't want them flapping around!! or the cats trying to catch them, it would be mayhem.

It' so quiet, can hear the sheep, the geese, a brook and the birds. Will probably take me a little while to get used it and the pitch blackness at night! Great

Thanks everyone, been lucky and have had access to the place before the tenancy properly starts. So have been able to move a lot of boxes and smaller stuff, have even managed to unpack my books already ! Really just the big bits to go now.

Yes clk, I love the house already, think I've got over leaving my current garden behind. I feel very lucky as I've always wanted to live in the country side, it's so quiet!! Bliss.

Gardening will be a treat there, what ever the weather or the aspect of the garden.

Thanks for the reminder gardengirl about the honesty, will take some of these has well!! They have done so well and should flower next year.

Will definately takes some pictures and post them here, will properley be off line for a while but wont forget

Too late to plant bulbs?

Posted: 08/11/2013 at 11:36

Hi clk, I don't know if there's a maximum depth for bulbs, the general rule seems to be twice the depth of the bulb, but I would think that you could plant deeper than that.  I know they are pretty tough things and seem to find there way up out of anything.

Hedgehogs.

Hi  gardengirl, I got your seeds and the little plant, thanks very much. I haven't forgotten about your seeds, a lot of my garden stuff hasn't  been packed yet, but will send them when I can.

Thanks also to Zoomer and Potty, I've written down the swop so will send you my seeds when I get a chance

 

HELLO FORKERS!

Hi everyone, nearly all packed just the big things to go. Two more sleeps, then new home!  I've got the new smileys, seems a bit early for me to use them. Been up there a few times now and I'm getting used to the idea of new garden, new plants

Congratulations Dove on your retirement, enjoy it.
