It's OK KEF, calm down...Not long now til wine time...
PS it seems I told an untruth ... Just been for a garden wander and there is indeed some frost. Also found 4 little osteospermum flowers happily braving the cold, bless em don't they know it's not time yet, eager beavers.

Good morning.
panda, hope you're ok, (not that I've read back to know what's happened).
clear morning here, no frost.
spent last night hauling stuff out of my wardrobe, piles for bin , charity, don't like but wear and want to but don't wear pile s. Back killing now (surely it's not that? I can't be that unfit can I?). Last week it was the 'hall haul',.getting rid of shoes coats etc.
Right time to get orgainised for what hauling is due today...

Not looked out yet so it could be knee deep on snow or anything.
OH away skiing so I'm starting a bit later today after getting son off to school.
Brugmansia is dormant or a goner BL, not sure until spring. Will try and bring it indoors while OH still away, other thathan that it's just a matter of waiting.
Have a good day all.

Hi folk, I'm back after another period of AWOLness!
Had a really busy time late summer/early autumn. In fact it seems I lost my marbles - not that I've got them back....the upshot of it is my poor beloved brugmansia. I managed to get bubble wrap mixed up with fleece. So the poor thing is chilling and damp under bubble wrap instead of warm cosy and safe in a fleece coat.At least it made it into the garage. Never even found time to take cuttings.
Five mins on here then bed for me. Router on a timer for 17 yr old step son issues!.
watched gb garden revival on catchup tonight - the scented garden one - so that's gonna be my new project. Itching to get out there -how long til spring????

Morning . Let's hope it's a good one for everyone.
I've enough on just getting myself in the bath in a morning never mind getting out to milk the cows- can it wait an hour or so? I'll do my turn tomorrow at let's say 10.00, it is the weekend after all!

wind proofing fences

Thanks edd, I'll not repeat OHs response but something along the lines of 25 panels and time constraints...

KT, fence panels vary in age but were all replaced as a job lot maybe 5_6 years ago. Unfortunately we couldn't afford to replace the concrete posted which are rubbish.

Looks like we are onto a looser or a mega expensive job.
Think I'll try again to persuade OH to replace each time one is damaged with a better type as mentioned above.
Meanwhile I probably my need a plan to grow some plants (shock - horror) in front to buffer the wind. There's no planting room for the panels on the drive though.
Will climbers work or just ruin the fence further?

Morning all.
New teenager has left the building. Right old rush n rigmorole this Morning, getting ready on time for school. Thanks for your good wishes. At least he enjoyed the morning and his pressies ( ha! that predictived to pressure!).
Established teenager still in bed, should be revising for mock a levels on Wed. Sadly many cross and frustrated words flying around our house atm.
But hey! There's Sun on the garden. Must put garden on my to do list.

Dove, dentures can have name labels incorporated into the plastic, very common in care homes to avoid mix up and loss. All dentures should be removed at night, staff should be aware of that. The impressions will not keep over time but if model casts are used these can be.

Hope everyone feels good and happy today. X
