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.

I did read the small print but kinda ever hopeful and wanted to ignore it

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

Thanks Orchid, not sold on the glam rock as yet, but love the pics. let me know what you see at GC and how it looks.

Thanks for explanation Dove, will stick with the floater (oo err), don't think micropond will have room for anything planted but I'll keep an eye out for green water etc.Any problems - I know where to come!

Thanks everyone,not quite what I wanted you to say  Wanted you to say it's massive and completely true to colour on the photo regardless of where it's planted - never mind!

Did put it on my birthday list last Oct but took it off again when I saw how small it would be and considering the price. I'll keep my eyes open at GC when it should be in flower later in the year.

Ok got it - dove ; shoes ; Imelda. Sorry took me a while. Got a fish called Imelda (because of her shoes!) and another called Jimmy.

1 bunch of  'crispa' from GC, thanks to Dove, floating pond plant, some will also go in fish tank indoors.

What's pond soil???

KEF - arches WILL be delivered on 18th or I will cry so much my micro pond will overflow!

Morning all. Sat outside GC wondering if its too early to go in. Lots of posts to comment on but can't quite remember what, edds chair sounds fab, who's Imelda? Where dove off to now? Hidcote not seen yet. Troubled workers have a good day.
Sneaked kef away from her garden yesterday and went to botanical gardens, lots of interesting plants especially tree ferns inside the glass house. Embarrasingly never found the weigelas, of which I've just been given a new one. Had a quick look round each others gardens, oohed and ahhhed at kefs fab plants and tidy GHs.
All followed by friends for tea, well more family really. They arrived as I was setting up replacement fish tank, OH catching fish, me syphoning water and insisting it goes in buckets outside ready for watering garden! Ended up with fish n chips from chippy ( not tank!), I know how to treat my guests!
Have a good day all.
