I'll 3rd that pd !
Got loads and loads of self seeded buddleias in implanted / future beds and in paving on front. Never had as many, n the paving ones won't pull out so will have to use weedkiller prob in spring now. Got tall s.son to help me cut back buddleias along gennel. Pretended I couldn't reach, poor me. Other son playing on front which im not keen on so freezing while I keep an eye on him.

Leaf Mould!

My leaves are all bagged up now. Just wondering what's the difference, or why don't i, just put them around plants as a mulch or on the normal compost?

Thanks everyone, but im prettty sure it won't turn up. Think we didn't insure it on last policy, need to check.

Or under the decking when we are long gone and the new owner rips it up?

Maybe it'll turn up in the leaf mould next year?

silly quotes

Posted: 03/11/2013 at 14:17

I've been trying to remember this one for ages, here it is

The kiss of the sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth,
One is nearer God's heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth....

Looked in the glove and where I took them off. OH not here but have texted the bad news to him. It's happened before but when we were doing building work, lugging bricks etc. Still I should learn to take it off when in the garden - just think then I'd loose the whole ring then.

Yep, it's raining here again - washing away the diamond I've just lost from my ring, was wearing gloves as well. Cannot think of a polite way to say how I'm feeling right now !

Camera Corner

I was looking for a quote for the 'silly quotes' thread when I came across this one and thought it suited 'camera corner' quite nicely....

*It pleases me to take amateur photographs of my garden, and it pleases my garden to make my photographs look professional.*
