HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: Today at 13:41
Afternoon all. Had a lovely day , well just an afternoon in the garden yesterday. Rubbish taken to the tip this morning ( in my new car, groan). Watching bluetits great tits and blackbirds in mums garden, apparently also nut hatches and long tailed tits too, OH and a robin. Funny how tits reverts to fits in prescriptive text. Drizzly, windy and chilly out there today, but it's coming, spring is nearly here... Honest!

Back garden privacy

my sympathies katy2, the same thing happened to me last year, shrubs, trees and sheds/outbuildings all gone as new neighbours moved in. Fencing is definitely the way to go, although I have invested in a row of trees for the future too. Good luck, and hope you enjoy your garden and privacy again soon.

verdun and AWB your comments made me smile, I'm not at all sure if I can manage not to over plant, but will try - and then I'll complain when I have to cut and dig out! No winners in this garden business! Live and carry on making the same mistakes again..

FB think ive got that - chop crossing branches, then when growth starts cut to 3 buds.

PD what car are you thinking of - of course I'm only asking what colour.?

FG if you're around I've just replied to an old PM!

snowdrops looking good but not much sign of oth bulbs yet.

Chucky, new space has an amelanchier in already but might put more central and a bit further back.

Ggirl , thanks, think I might try my hand at further thinning, any tips?
