Well, you've got to give it to Mr. Allen having his thread pulled off by the Mods hasnt detered him one bit.

I am afraid that fairer sex, sweet tones dear lady etc doesnt do it for me.

Salino, Izal toilet paper was brilliant, you could trace or do rubbings all day, great play value.

Pansy, you forgot cutting up newspapers to line your shoes when it was raining,  then your dad would nail Blakeys on the heals, that kept them going a bit longer.

No, not good ole days, unles you were rich.

We have all worked hard for little pay,

Thank you FG i didnt get the tiny cuttings going, but I was new to cuttings then.

Shame about the fuchias, I lost a lot to rust, they are only just recovering now, I am soon to be taking cuttings ready for next year.

Its more than likely slugs. They trash most things given the chance. I find the heads of the tagetes just hanging by a thread in the mornings.

I have some Bergenias in my north border, they keep the leaves, in Spring just cut off any tatty ones and away they go.

I have 3 or 4 hebes, they are evergreen and just need a bit of cutting back if they get too big, they are easy from cuttings that grow quickly, 

Foxgloves were good there, as were lupins this year, but they do need attention, cutting back and bare in the winter.

Hostas are good, but then not evergreen and susceptible to slugs.

aawwwww! puppy gone!

Peace at last Bekkie.

I have done washing but it rained in the night and is still raining, plants that were getting to the laying down stage are standing up, so its a good thing here.

Be careful when you handle the chilli, wash your hands after, if its a hot one and you rub your eyes, they dont half sting!.

I would like it if Annie would come back and show us what she has done, she posted inMay 2012, she must have decided by now. Come back Annie.

Thank you for the update.

My garden sounds like yours at the moment, everything just grows and grows. 

I hope your ankle will soon mend and you can get out to do some tidying. Its frustrating just to look at it knowing it needs doing.
