Jac, you've made a lovely garden there, and so tidy. Welcome and hope to see lots more of you and your garden.

Love and best wishes to you Mike, it's great to read your posts, wonderful experience, knowledge and insight. I hope you will be able to continue being involved with the forum during your illness and treatment, if not we will still be thinking fondly of you and wishing you well. Love also to those close to you that they may support you through this time. I hope the experiences and knowledge of the above posts give you some strength to help you through.

Hope the GH is worth the initial effort KEF and it makes it to it's new home in just the right number of pieces, not too many

Hoping Oh will be replacing two fence panels at W-end. So I've dug around the concrete posts, moved and repositioned what plants I could  from mine and NDN gardens, then put some slabs down so he can strategically place his feet! Hope the plan works but in reality will get trampled plants right left and centre!

Now feel pathetically weak, had a good breakfast earlier but feel like I need to eat. Didn't want to stuff my face with chocolate and biscuits (well actually I did want to  but resisted), instead had a cereal bar, a banana, a yoghurt and 10 minutes later when still felt no better had a thick slice of bread and butter. Might as well just have had a couple of biscuits!

Not sure Peter, I've never had a small one. Maybe someone else will have a look in and help you out.

Old ugly slabs removed and replaced by little bricks (all left overs from main path). It makes a little walk way through the border, hopefully getting a little overgrown and 'hidden'. Little seat made with piled up bricks and stones, not pretty but something to do with them rather than lying about! 

Dug fairly deep (not deep enough yet) near to tree which needs replacing. Looking ok to be able to plant another tree without getting stopped by thick roots.

More playing with hosepipe to plan new lawn shape.

Reported dodgy tree in front of my house to council. Holes in trunk, rotting between two main trunks, ready to colloapse (ok maybe not for a couple of years but forewarned...)

Off to SM now.

Thanks nodlisab, not looking promising is it? Think I'll wait a few years!
