Thanks everyone, sure OH and son will be fine.
At least it didn't intrude on my garden time unlike DD!
Had an hour at theNGS garden. Huge half acre. Nicely laid out. Planting and design not really to my taste but impressive even so. Woe definitely visit again in summer ( but it's only open for one day - today).

However, the weekend just gets better - just learnt my sister has got married - found out via Facebook! Thought we had a good enough relationship to know she even had a serious fella, oh well...congrats to her, not worth getting shirty about, she always was a bit strange!

1m wide and can go easily 2m along path before getting in the way of the slide, the tree is a golden ash, all the broken flagstones can go, maybe still need some sort of path for the trampoline and slide (seems they must stay a little while longer )

so, planting plan for the plants listed in my last post ??????  thank you x

Just had a look at 'crocus' combinations. Like kniphofia avaria with helenium ruby Tuesday and moorheim beauty and achillea terracotta, not sure how many of each would be needed, will go and measure so someone may advise....

thanks chicky and SGL, just asked garden neighbour if he saw anything, heard lots but nothing useful. Worried about son, sheild him from violence (perhaps too much), I'm sure he's having trouble making any sense of it all, has made dad a get well card and keeps asking about the wall, this in itself tells me how much it's on his mind but he has trouble communicating it. Horrid horrid times, and 'stuff' at work returning so stress levels are being tested. At least it's sunny with clear blue skies, not a cloud in sight.

Morning all.

Dreadful day yesterday, OH got attacked by 10-15 youths infront of our house. They'd been hanging around for some time just being teenagers near the bottom end of the garden. Id been listening and was worried but satisfied they were doing no harm, just language and stuff. More groups joined them, then a motorbike (on the jennel/ snicket). OH went out and started filming them and that's when it really kicked off. Ended up with OH and one of em going over the front wall and it collapsing. Community police came 2 mins after the last of them had gone. Police came later at night, didn't want a statement, we didn't know any of them so they weren't really interested. Just waiting for repercussions now, OH has set up CCTV but often not clear enough anyway. OHs back is very sore after pulling it but thankfully not too battered and bruised. Son saw more than I did so I'm worried about him now. 

On a lighter note, I'm off to NGS garden this afternoon.
