Never go out without garden gloves on at moment Gary.

Come in for lunch an a rest - bacon sandwich treat

Looked a jewell bed from house and still looks a mess so guess will have to pull up some more grass But which ones to keep original idea going.

Moaning I might be but it is a lovely grass at moment in centers has deep autumn brown /red fronds. Am going to pot a couple up for future use. i just planted too many to start with.

OH has dug me a big hole to plant a rose in so will do that later. He also dug and planted a peone pot for frost protection till I can plant it in spring.

I do take care Lottie, thanks for your concern.

What's the weather like in your area?

Glorious day. Woke up to a covering of frost, Bright and sunny and not as cold as I thought, a garden tidying day.

Cat allergies

Posted: 18/11/2012 at 11:35

My cat lost her fur. It has happened twice now. Flea allergy. It also affected her digestive track. She is now on special food and hair is growing back, sores are healing and she is beginning to play again. I don't know about plants though, is there one your cat rubs up against especilly?  My dog and cat like verbena bonariensis.

Just come in for a cuppa. Attacked the jewell bed. I planted a bronze grass for the jewells to grow up through ( there was aChelsea garden about 3 years ago where I had the idea from) But the grass has taken over so am pulling up every other clump the 'jewells came up this year and now hopefully they should next year. Might have made room for some more plants will have to see when fifnished. Foot coping OK but then I'm not digging.

Watched SCD last night. Felt that podium in the middle spoit the flow sometines and the lighting didn't grab me.

Head still hurts so does throat but hey is gloriously sunny here.

Jo there are squirrels but I think its more likely to de the daft woodpigeons that haven't realised they can't get heads, bodies on feeders. Or rather they have realised, forgotten and then gone back again, rather like goldfish really

Will sort it out tomorrow.

Ours went down the loo.
