Spent the mornig paintng my sons bedroom, then treated myself to an afternoon in the armchair watching the birds in my garden. Had a nice visit from a nuthatch that enjoyed the meal worms. Shame i didnt have my camera ready.

Then planed up a large pot on my patio with sweat pea and also some sunflowers that I grew from seed, coutesy of Lilylouise

Im guessing its a privet hedge that is suffering from honey fungus. Hows that for a precognition?

Very nice scotkat. I think a clematis would look very nice growing up it.

Hi again all, as requested I have uploaded some pics of my garden to the garden gallery 2013. I've had to reduce the file sizes considerably as they wouldn't load at first try. I hope they will open. Regards, John H

Lovely garden LeadFarmer, those beds are beautifully filled with form and colour. I should think you've earned that view from your armchair.

Thanks, but its all getting dug up this autumn as I want to redesign it by reducing the lawn and making much larger borders. Thats if I can muster the energy!

I first went about 4 yrs ago and enjoyed it. I even purchased a 10x8 greenhouse whilst there from The Greenhouse People.

I went for my 2nd time last year and thought it was appaullingy bad, hardly any exhibitors compared to my previous visit. Those that were there were spread about to make the halls look full. Even the Good Food Show that was there at the same time wasnt very good. It was as if the recession had hit hard. I left after about 2 hrs, I'd had enough.

Wont be going again until I hear its picked up.

John, thats a nice looking garden! The lawn shape looks great, much better than a boring rectangle lawn. Thanks for posting photos.

I use an Apple MacBook where I hold down shift/command/4 and then drag a box around the area I want to copy. Not sure it can be done on a windows computer though, but you can copy your whole screen by pressing a button in the top right of keyboard called Prtpage or similar?

your right, uploading from computer is quicker but some forums don't allow this. Photobucket is a good bit of software for storing photos online to keep them safe.

Winter Song, your garden looks great, i love the lavander path. I've tried doing similar but my soil is heavy clay and my lavenders don't like it. Your garden has lots interest and looks great. How do you get on with cutting your grass along the wooden edging border, do you have to  finish it by hand?
