Leaking birdbath

A forum friend recommended that I put a foil tray, turkey size, in my bird bath so each morning I can just throw the ice out and refill. Wonder if that would help as a temporary measure

Bit after my time rosemummy, but did go to the Limit and  ? I've gone brain dead soz. How about trawling West St?  Frog & Parrot  also the one behind the City Hall used to be the Red Lion. Was the Stonehouse still there in your era ? 

Best place for me was the Penthouse 1975- 1977 also Scarboro Penthouse

How to remove HUGE shrub

Posted: 21/01/2015 at 17:32

I'd say reduce as much as you can and attack the base with an axe and then dig it out with a grafting spade, well that is the way my OH removes conifers, pampas grass and stuff that he sees as a challenge, he even dug out sycamore tree stumps  Think he enjoys it, he is available for hire  Joking, I have a list ready for him in the spring.


OH not allowed to have a chainsaw I prefer him with limbs in tact.
