Artjack I will ask my son to take a photo when he calls round  it crunches when you walk on it to pick the leaves up   


Frank Ive always had jobs todo in the garden never to sit in and relax as the pond pump always need cleaning as well as the bird bath   also adding new plants to the borders  I will get rid of the tubs now as my daughter needs them to grow veg in

 perhaps next spring and summer I will be able to as I have a garden chair I have never used and at age 78 I deserve a rest

I have got rid of my shed and patio slabs and tommorow the greenhouse is going 

my garden is a mess as all the rubbish will have to go to the tip i bought a storage box which my daughter coudnt put together to keep hand tools and garden stuff in  

I am having artificial lawn put down when its all cleared  also having the patio cleaned 

I have a border at the side and hope to have one at the top of the garden so all the shrubs can go out from my tubs 

also today a vicor gave me 10 fish  i saw advertised to put in my pond as his leaked 


I have a recycle bin full of pots and seed trays nobody seems to want 

as everything is getting to much for me now 


so now I am exhausted
