Watched spy in the wild, it was good how they made the animals. When the monkeys tried to move it, it looked dead to them and they were very upset.

Moved another gooseberry from the back to the front. Somebody's just offered to take our green waist away for free. Hubby's got to cut back the pyracantha hedge back, so that will be helpful.

I did a charity thing a few years ago, a neaghbour arranged it. She had a old karioki machine that played tapes. Got a tape recorded of the Carpenters and I sang along with it. At the venue they had a sound system already there so I used that mic instead of the one with the karioki,it sounded better. Unfortunately I don't subscribe to any message board or utube. Or anything.

Pinkandwhitepoppy, their lovely. We had staffies when I was growing up. My dad liked them. They used to be bigger in the 60s.

I grow a lot of blueberries and raspberries in pots, thornless blackberries in garden, but they don't take over the whole garden.

Pokhim. You'll find that you're taste changes over the years. I always liked just growing flowers. Now all the back garden is full of fruit and some veg. The front is like a cottage garden with fruit and veg.

Catch up on house work, do some sewing, watch tv and fall asleep.
Like to sing to the Carpenters.

I had trouble with plum moth, so put up a sticky trap for plum moth, it works well. Had trouble with wasps so got a waspinator, that worked.Now only have trouble with black birds.

What cheers me up is looking forward to the new season and dreaming of what's to come. I've got helebores slowly coming into flower and crocus and waiting for all the spring bulbs.

Don't keep the chillies on the plant too long, only when they're just ripe. If it's too hot don't put so much in.

Buttercupdays, yes he is, but he doesn't cock his leg anymore, he stoops and there's a lot of fur underneath and have to do it in the dark with only half the street lights on. We will see.
