Ok Hosta, I think I will leave the few I have in the ground and they can take their chances, I will just pile mulch on then, they are flowering now!  and you already have my coloured one, if you run out of space you could bin mine if you want to.

We will look out for the weather then, doesn't look good before you go away though.

Eden have started their free locals passes again if you are interested, talking of cannas and other tropicals.

Warm Autumn

Same here Amber on Dartmoor. I haven't watered the garden at all this year, and the patio tubs and baskets probadly about 6/8 times. Have been known to do it every day before.. 

Don't be scaredy cat.....

I love anything that grows for me. Due to altitude and climate up here I am lucky for anything to grow. Always in the clouds and very damp. There is not a time, ever when we can sit on the grass.

Landscaping cost

Posted: 12/11/2015 at 09:55

My friends had their small garden laid out, twenty years ago and it cost them 6000.00 and that's Devon prices. My dad and I cleared all the brambles and weeds and removed them in return for their greenhouse.

this work does not come cheap. professionals will do it properly, good foundations to the patio area etc. 

having said that, you may find someone unemployed/ self employed wanting a bit of cash in hand, best get three of four quotes, don't let them give you an estimate, must be a quote.

You may find a family work party works out better.

Just been to pick up the car, needed a new alternator, couldn't be simple like the battery, oh well, there goes another shirt of my back.

A Big to be taking the pee haven't they, it's getting like the US naming storms.

Sad about Pams dog, but another little one has a lovely home.

Hoping Dove is getting better, and all others.

Welcome back Hosta, just say the word and I will be there.

OH risking the Cornwall job today, I don't think it will be very pleasant driving across Bodmin Moor in this foggy drizzle but it's got to be done sometime, once the rain sets in here it's usually until April.

Off to Morrisons today, then a nice gammon roast tonight.

Feeling more myself now - going into the kitchen to make red onion soda bread and pea and ham soup for supper ...

Am I having a 'blonde' moment or did you say that yesterday?

Pond Life

Good luck with a pre formed one, we nearly had a divorce on our hands, it's now dumped at the back of the garden and a heavy duty liner in place 

Dove, do the females leave and the males come to hibernate in the pond then? 

We had frogs sleeping at the bottom last winter.

Seeds just arrived from Victoria, thank you, I can poison the whole family with that lot
