He's only 9yrs old, so how he managed to get served with the cider I just don't know!

First went in 2009 and thought it was good, even bought a £1000 greenhouse whilst there. Went a couple of years later and it was really poor. Im now glad I didn't go this year, and I doubt I'll ever be going again until I hear its had a massive kick up the arse.

 Ha ha 

Im also using it as a guide for my planned pond. I was planning one in the corner of the garden but I'm now liking the idea of having a circular one in the centre of the garden, about the same size as the circular lawn patch. I'll be removing the remainder of the grass and turning it all to planting.

Im still having fun changing how I mow the lawn, today I've left a circle of longer grass, a ring of shorter grass around it, and then mowed everywhere else even shorter, with a mowed path running through it. Should look better in a few days as it was still wet when I cut it....

See original post

 It never flowers very well to be honest Lily Pily, maybe because its in a planter. Its east facing and only gets sun in the mornings?

Thanks Busy-Lizzie, Ive still got to find a permanent home for those potted oak tree saplings. Maybe when they are too big/heavy to move I will get around to trying to move them!!

Ive been a bit more relaxed with my gardening this year, not being as tidy as I normally am. Ive purposely let the lawn grow in areas for wildlife, and generally just let things be themselves. Though I do need to weed the patio paving.

Heres a few photos, some plants are clearly going over, some yet to come...
