Chicky and Clari hope the bulbs get planted.  Joyce, Lesley Fairy Bushman and all other "northerners" hope we get a nice weekend but fear the weather has changed.

Morning!  Gorgeous start to the day,  dragons breath in the valley (gd reliably informed me this is what mist is) sun on the hills. 

Edd nice to see you

Pat I remember being told the brown snakes were the most dangerous, take care. Do you have to keep the grass short all around the house? 

Fairy, have a good day it will be lovely up at your salt mine just now with the colours 

Chicky just a common acer palmaton, gave it a whole bucket of homemade kitchen compost this yearπŸ˜„

Hello, been reading back

Clari, omg. And you managed only water for a month? as we say up here "you must be made of girders" nice  you were shown appreciation at work!

Pdoc I can't begin to imagine how you must feel, Mrs P must be made of girders too!

DD  quite an achievement, and an enjoyable break, be proud!

Pat how is HRH

Chicky, Lesley, Obelixx, and anyone else I have missed out πŸ˜„πŸŒ»

family just gone, trying to catch up and friend goes down like a stone again. Have spent over an hour this afternoon trying to convince her life is worth living  I fear I got nowhere. Sometimes I don't understand life's challenges

on a brighter note  I got a walk around the garden this afternoon  the new fruit cage is coming on a treat should be ready for January planting of bare root. The colours are amazing the acres seem particularly bright this yeara and still autumn rasps,  ever known a year like it. The rest of the apples the birds can have. Freezer crammed

Lovely photos Pat, bringing back a ton of memories

we used to go up to friends at Wangaratta and the ghost gums  took your breath away on a clear night.

Tiger snakes you can keep but I do miss a lot especially an Aussie spring!

happy anniversary!

P doc. I am looking forward to reading your book, surely with your life experiences you are writing one? Delighted you are home safe, MSF dear to my own heart I am sure your help was invaluable I salute you! When do you go to Grenada?πŸ˜„

Bushman,  nothing like a bit of Scottish scenery to heal the soul. Family just back from Skye and said the weather fantastic, glad you are feeling better.  I love Ullapool, you will have heard the one about the Russians?!

Busy  Physio for shoulder is really worth doing, you got to keep it moving, ouch!

Yvie we are fine, just seem to be hit with challenge after challenge at the moment. Onwards and upwards!

Hi Steve, I planted three together about 4 years ago.  One died immediately the others are only coming good now. I have often been tempted to whip them out but they are pretty. Don't worry about the leaves, they are deciduous. Try a winter mulch and fingers crossed for the spring

Box hedging

Posted: 19/10/2016 at 19:54

We have been seriously hit with box blight. 

Monty didn't dig it all out, we clean out the base of  hedge (clean your shears after use)  burn all clippings

give a seaweed weed in the spring and hardly cut it, just a light trim. Replant your gaps with a blight resistant box After 6 years we are looking much better and glad we didn't rip it out
