Thanks... yeah it is a lovely size and past the willow tree is an allotment area with apple trees and lots of beds... its just a bit overgrown at has been neglected so its just trying to get it in some sort of order. 

Yes have two small boys and a little girl due September (arggh!!) so I garden when I can... I do love gardening though !!

Awww... thank you everyone... you are all so kind We moved from Bedfordshire and were amazed at the garden we could get for our money. We had a 12ft x 10ft garden before so this is heaven ! 

Awww... such a shame birdy that you had to get rid of it Some people really don't think about trees and thier eventual size when they put them in do they 

I don't know how old our Willow is... the couple before us had lived her 17 years and it was there before them. I want it to keep going forever ...although sadly I know that it won't 

Thanks Fairygirl... I'm a bird lover too and we are blessed with so many birds and squirrels and even have a pheasant coming for breakfast. We are very spoiled here ! 

Tulip Bulbs

I am definitely taking all mine out... hopefully on Sunday. Daffs too... they were put in , in the most stupid of places (like behind a 6ft Holly bush??) so I need to take them all out and then put then back in a normal place. 

I will be cutting them back and then putting them in one of the sheds.

To be honest, I thought they were geraniums as well when they first started showing. 


Glad it wasn't just mean then LeadFarmer...

Was tired of the boring soil in the front garden and we had soooo many broken pots and logs that I decided to try and make a rockery/wildlife haven. 

I need to wait for the alpines to get settled and stuff... any advice appreciated.
