Hated the grass hurdle seats all I could think of was how the hell are they going to mow them?


Still it's gardening so I'm watching it.

 And the way they piled all that soil against the boundary fence!!! Surely the fence will now rot in a couple of years? Could have done with a lick of paint as well.

Better to reschedule it for a sporting event than to not air it at all.

The birds are eating all my bird food!

Ive just added a new and much larger feeder to my garden. Its a 7 port Apollo feeder from CJ Wildlife and comes apart easily for cleaning, no tools needed. Its also got ventilation holes which they claim reduce internal condensation? It has a metal top, bottom and feeding ports so should be safe from squirrels.

pruning honeysuckle

Try pruning back half of it this year, and see if it produces new growth next year, then prune the other half back next year after flowering.

Beautiful animals.


We rescued a German Shepherd last year. The forum collective know all about him.


Best thing we did!!

Beautiful looking dog, and perhaps my favourite breed, though I've never owned one.

My mother had lab that failed its guide dog training at a young age. Apparently they are trained to do their 'business' only on command, so they don't mess when the blind person is walking them?


Well her dog was the most perfectly trained dog I've ever known, and even she failed.

Can you post a picture of the square bolts please?


Maybe buy a set of ratchet spanners to make life much easier?



You can also buy hex nut socket screwdrivers that could work, depending on the nut shape..

You can even get power drill attachments of the same.
